FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- On Saturday, April 2, more than 200 people in the Fairfield Country Day School (FCDS) community volunteered their time for the school’s first Day of Service.

After meeting on campus, volunteers were divided into teams and sent to work on different projects around the area. Many of the groups braved wet weather and tackled outdoor projects. Volunteers cleaned-up Fairfield streets, a Southport park, and planted daffodils and made a pathway at the Fairfield Audubon.

One group planted a garden for Horizons and read books to the students, while other volunteers planted a vegetable garden for Operation Hope. In addition to the outside activities, groups made cookies and delivered them with notes to Operation Hope, snack bags were assembled and delivered to the Bridgeport Rescue Mission, and flowers were arranged and given to the patients at The Carolton Chronic and Convalescent Hospital.

A tradition of serving the community is an integral part of the school’s culture. The importance of the school’s motto, “We are judged by our deeds,” is demonstrated through the school-wide stewardship program, which provides age-appropriate opportunities for students to address the needs of others while learning about underlying social issues.

The school’s connection to the community is very important and it was wonderful to see so many parents and students supporting the Day of Service.

Fairfield Country Day School is a private, independent school for boys in grades Pre-K through ninth grade. Fairfield Country Day has been at the forefront of boys’ education since 1936, providing an active learning environment in which every boy excels.

At Country Day a student’s success is a deliberate combination of dedicated faculty who get to know each boy as an individual; a broad-based, balanced curriculum of academics, music, arts, and athletics that engages the whole boy; and facilities that enhance learning and foster meaningful relationships between the boys and their teachers.
