Aspen Country Day School

a personal approach to excellence in academics, arts, and outdoor education for PreKindergarten through Eighth Grade

On the Journey View All News
Eighth Graders traveled to the state Capitol this winter to participate in an historic event: a public hearing on a measure to repeal the death penalty in Colorado. This was a remarkable day fueled by the students' own passion for this topic.
At Aspen Country Day School, students are continually called upon to practice their courage. From Outdoor Ed adventures to the All School Play; from academic presentations to group projects to ski days, students are in situations all the time where they must step outside of their comfort zones and try something new. Head of Middle School Brenda Stockdale unpacks the value of courage.
For this school year, the annual school-wide theme is sustainability. So the choice of Earth Day, April 22, for our all-school day of service is a perfect match. Children will be spreading out all over the local community for a variety of projects.
"We all know the adage, 'Patience is a virtue,' meaning it's a morally excellent quality," writes Middle School Head Brenda Stockdale in her latest blog post. "So of course we all aspire to be patient people, right? Researchers claim patience is actually a skill that can be learned, and it needs to be nurtured and practiced daily."
