Are you ready to “Rock the Blue” LJCDS? Let's celebrate! We are very fortunate to have such a wonderful environment for our children, faculty and administration. Our children are so lucky to be able to experience locally and globally the less fortunate. Whether it is going to Head Start, collecting cans for the Food Bank, or gathering items for Haiti's devastation, all of these projects are what help shape the character of our children. Many of these projects would not be available without our Community Service program. Are your children happy when you pick them up every day? Mine are! I believe that it is a direct reflection of our wonderful faculty. Happy teachers make learning fun and exciting! Here at LJCDS, Teacher Enrichment is an important element in supporting our teachers. They are continually offered workshops, seminars, conferences and continued education to keep them refreshed. Like any of us, teachers too, need re-energizing! As we all know, there are many children who would love to experience LJCDS, but are not financially able to. Our school believes that our community is stronger when it includes students from all socioeconomic backgrounds. That is why we offer Tuition Assistance; to give these students the opportunity regardless of their economic circumstances. I can not express enough gratitude to my co-chairs Clare Sturtevant, Christine Ashworth, and Fara Fashandi. Not only for their huge commitment towards this event, but also for their friendship. To RobynAnn Nelson and Barbara Maisel, thank you for educating me and helping me manage this project in a way I never knew existed. Thank you to all of our parent volunteers, teachers, and administration! I hope you will come “Rock the Blue” on May 1st to show your support and celebrate a wonderful time for our children. All the best,

Belinda Donner

RobynAnn D. Nelson

Parents' Association President

Dear Country Day Families, Over the last five years—with your enthusiastic support—we’ve completely re-invented and re-built the heart of campus. We’ve erected a world-class library, state of the art science labs, the most compelling art studios in the city, and a kindergarten village that engages and nurtures the minds that will one day lead our state and our country through the late stages of the twenty-first century. We’ve carted off old tennis courts for new, and we’ve [gently] dismantled old classrooms. But we have not touched Senior Rock. In fact, NO ONE touches Senior Rock…save for members of the graduating class, for whom the Rock has been something of a stone age Twitter account for years and years. Late in February, the members of the Class of 2010 paid homage to the Spring Gala and all that the Parents’ Association does in support of our students and teachers, and I wanted to share this picture with you. We are an extraordinary community, with an extraordinary mission. The students and faculty of La Jolla Country Day thank you and wish you a rollicking evening as you endeavor to ROCK THE BLUE. All the best,!


The Parents' Association Thanks Belinda Donner Christine Ashworth Fara Fashandi Clare Sturtevant

Your leadership and dedication are an inspiration to us all.
