Chadwick Seniors continued the tradition of giving a stuffed dolphin to new students.
Welcome to Chadwick, Class of 2033 and 2034! Today Chadwick seniors continued the tradition of welcoming our youngest students to the Chadwick family with a stuffed dolphin. We want every student at Chadwick to feel that they belong to a tight-knit community each and every day that they step foot on campus. We hope that each of these students goes on to earn the distinction of being a “WOW” by attending Chadwick from Pre-K through commencement. We look forward to being a part of this new group of learners’ journey of self-discovery and growth.
Chadwick students joined children across the world in celebrating Global Play Day and International Dot Day.
On September 15, Global Play Day and International Dot Day coincided for one big celebration of play, creativity and connection in the Chadwick Village School. Students brought toys and materials from home to build forts, design marble mazes, create jewelry and design their own toys. They also played traditional cultural games in their world language classes to explore how play takes shape in different countries across the world.
Since 2015, Global Play Day has been raising awareness for the benefits of unstructured child-led play. In a world where children spend an increasing amount of time in structured and adult-led activities, they are missing out on opportunities to develop their creativity, communication skills, leadership ability and so much more.
International Dot Day was founded in 2009 and draws its inspiration from the book, “The Dot,” by Peter H. Reynolds, which tells the story of a student who developed the courage and the confidence to share, all by beginning with a single dot. The day is recognized around the world as a celebration of creativity, courage and collaboration based on the lessons shared in the book.
Today’s celebration reinforced for students, teachers and parents that along with being fun, play can also be an opportunity for learning and a language of connection.
Chadwick team tops the 2021 list of international teams.
The Chadwick International Boys Soccer Team was recently ranked #1 in the world by Tiro Sports, a U.S. college recruitment program that works with high school players from around the world. Chadwick won the KAIAC league title in 2019 and took home the Korea Cup in 2021 for their performance in the modified season. They have a strong roster heading into this academic year and will be looking to defend their title.
It is an incredible honor to be included in the company of such exceptional teams from across the globe. Read the full press release here.
Chadwick Village School students faced off on the athletic fields in a friendly competition this week.
Chadwick Village School students faced off on the athletic fields in a friendly competition this week. The four Houses - Air, Earth, Fire and Water - competed in grade-wide, physically-distanced games to earn points for their teams. Throughout the year, students participate in a variety of events and activities as they vie for the House Cup.
A Chadwick education isn’t just about academics - it’s a whole-student approach developed to foster healthy minds, bodies and spirits for an experience that’s personally enriching. Students are assigned to a House when they first arrive at Chadwick and they continue in their Houses as they rise into new grades, providing them an opportunity to connect outside of the classroom.
The event furthered two of Chadwick’s goals for this school year - building community and facilitating a sense of belonging for each and every student. Sunshine, fresh air and some exercise was the perfect way to round out a week of hard work.
