A Night to Remember

In the fall of 1995, after what has been described as “several years of debate,” the TDS Board of Trustees decided to hold an auction. Patty McClendon and Sharon Myers chaired the first event, titled “Champions at the Speedway,” which took place at Croasdaile Country Club. Generating a profit of $12,000 (which far surpassed the […]

Middle School Update

One of the things I can always count on middle schoolers to get excited about is science labs! The middle school students have frequent opportunities for hands-on learning in science. Just in the past two weeks, students have done a “gingerbread genetics” lab tracing traits of colored puffballs through grandparents to grandkids, demonstrated the permeability […]

An Attitude of Gratitude

With Thanksgiving only a week away, I trust that many of us are anticipating some time-honored family traditions. As a kid, I looked forward to a family football game, a crowded dinner table, my Aunt Rosemary’s pies, and my uncles engaging in a protracted, boring conversation about politics. Thanksgiving is a time when we all […]

When we interviewed Samantha Lazar for a fifth-grade teaching position last June, it seemed like kismet. She was an experienced, well-educated teacher who was ready to bring her talents to a new classroom. Even more than that, she was a part of the Triangle Day School family, having taught in our Middle School – partnered […]
