Last Wednesday, the new semester began at Wayne Country Day School and everyone is readjusting to the school schedule. Activity is starting to pick up again, so let's see what's going on.

Mark your calendar: the school is participating in another fundraiser on Saturday, Feb. 1. Students, faculty, and other members of the Wayne Country Day community are strongly encouraged to run in the 5K in Walnut Creek. The cost is $35 per person. This amount includes an entrance fee and a donation to the school's selected charity: Soup Moms of South Africa. This organization's mission is to promote the welfare of impoverished individuals in South Africa. The last day to sign up for the event is Friday, so register immediately to support this important cause!
