Last week, the Middle School Drama Department treated families and friends to three amazing performances of the Fall play, Cloudy With A Chance of Foul Play.Cloudy With A Chance of Foul Play is an original murder mystery written and directed by Middle School Drama Teacher, Vince Faso.
Our faculty and staff work hard to remain at the cutting edge of their craft, continually learning, stretching and growing to provide the most dynamic learning environments for our students. In addition to the Parent Guardian Association Summer Grants provided by the PGA, Redwood Day supports robust professional development throughout the year. Recently, I had the opportunity to connect with some of our faculty and staff to hear about what they learned on their summer professional development adventures. In a two-part series (this week and next), I’ll be sharing some highlights from our faculty and staff.

Many Mexicans families believe that death is just a rite of passage. The Day of the Dead, el 'Dia de los Muertos,' is 4,000 year-old tradition celebrated in Mexico on November 1st and 2nd each year. This is a celebration deeply rooted in the ancient history of Mexico. It is tradition that the celebration of Dia de los Muertos begins at home with the creation of an altar-ofrenda, which means the offering.
