Ridgefield Academy will hold an open house on Saturday, Oct. 20, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. All families who attend are invited to enjoy RA’s annual Fall Family Day (11 a.m. to 3 p.m.), a carnival of food, fun and activities for children of all ages.
Families will have a chance to explore the new sound booth in the school’s media and technology center (The Bridge) and see the creative work that middle and upper school students have produced. The Weather Bug station and some inventions made in Robotics classes will be up and running.
Families with children ages 3 through grade three can check out the lower school computer lab, laptop and iPad carts, and a fully equipped media center.
The renovated preschool for children age 2 through 5 will be open to the public for the first time.
“The Kitchen Lab,” to open in November, will integrate science, math and writing with nutrition and cooking. Students learn the benefits of “farm-to-table” as they plant and grow vegetables and herbs in the organic garden. Families may also visit the auditorium (“the pod”) and learn how this new space will used in the preschool.
The World Language Wing, new this fall in the middle and upper school, is on the tour as well.
“The Ridgefield Academy community is committed to our mission statement: ‘maintaining high academic standards and emphasizing the importance of responsibility, respect and service to others in all areas of school life,’” said Julie Crane, director of admission.
