Every Day is a Great Day at Greensboro Day School!

Education at Greensboro Day School extends beyond traditional classroom academics to include hands-on experiences, citizenship, community, and more! At GDS, students are encouraged to explore their intellectual curiosity, develop the courage to think independently, and foster a love of learning. Whether with the youngest Bengals or the graduating seniors, GDS’s program focuses on character development that will build values and virtues to last a lifetime. As children and young adults grow and develop their concern for others, they enhance their own well-being and enrich their learning experiences. At GDS, learning is about more than mastering a subject. It’s about helping students discover and develop their unique strengths and talents. Boundless opportunities, phenomenal resources, outstanding experiences — they’re here for the taking at Greensboro Day School. Make plans to attend a PK-4th grade open house on Tuesday, October 21 at 6:00pm. Visit for details.

Field of Fears at BB&T Ballpark

Do you have arachnophobia (fear of spiders)?  What about herpetophobia (fear of reptiles)? Or maybe you’re just afraid of the dark? Fear not! Come to BB&T Ballpark and face your fears this month during the first-ever Field of Fears. BB&T Ballpark has been transformed into the “Field of Fears,” a family-friendly event that allows fans of all ages to participate in Halloween-themed activities at the home of the Winston-Salem Dash.

The “Field of Fears” contains a variety of fun activities, including scarecrow building and pumpkin decorating. It also features hay rides around the field, a maze, a pumpkin patch and Dash inflatables. Attendees particularly looking for a spook will enjoy the “Face Your Fears” walk and a “Dark Room.” Admission is $11 if purchased in advance or $14 when making day-of purchases. Children two and under can attend for free. Parking is also free for all 10 dates. Guests can purchase pumpkins and scarecrows for $8 and $15, respectively, and food will be available for purchase.
