Come Out and See What Greensboro Day School is All About

Greensboro Day School’s age 2 – grade 12 program is comprehensive and includes a dynamic academic curriculum, fine and performing arts, athletics, world language, social-emotional learning, and more. Students learn lessons from Dr. Seuss, Shakespeare, and Newton while practicing civil discourse, environmental stewardship, kindness, and inclusivity.

In the early years, GDS teachers understand the importance of play as part of a child’s learning and development. In the Middle School, teachers help adolescents discover who they are as learners while they become more confident in their abilities. Older students prepare for college and what’s next! GDS students are the next generation of leaders who have the skills necessary to create, innovate, and collaborate.

Learn more about Greensboro Day School by attending an Open House Preview Day on November 7 for grades 5-12, or November 13 for ages 2 – grade 4. RSVP at

Calvary Day School hosts Parenting 101: The Love Languages of Children & Teens with Dr. Gary Chapman

Are you loving your child the way they need to be loved to mold them into a thriving happy adult? Does your message of love reach them? How do you love them successfully? These are all questions parents ask themselves day after day. Am I doing it right? How could I do it better?

Calvary Day School is hoping to help answer some of those lingering questions with Parenting 101: The Love Languages of Children & Teens seminar featuring the New York Times best-selling author Dr. Gary Chapman at 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 7 in the Worship Center of Calvary Baptist Church in Winston-Salem. The seminar is a free event open to the public.

CDS Head of School Richard Hardee said he hopes the Parenting 101 series brings useful information to help families throughout the parenting process.

“We are inviting parents in the Winston-Salem area to join us for this special night to hear Dr. Chapman share about the love languages of children and teens,” Hardee said.

SWIPEBY: Making Life Easier for Busy Moms

SWIPEBY is a local tech startup founded by a Wake Forest University graduate. SWIPEBY is a food ordering app that enables great local restaurants to offer virtual menus, mobile order-ahead, and curbside service. Users can browse the menus of nearby open restaurants, order, pay, and even tip (if they so choose)—all in the app. Once the customer arrives at the restaurant, the waiter will receive an alert and bring the food to the car, negating the need for the customer to go inside. The best part? The service is always free to customers. SWIPEBY allows busy, on-the-go residents alternatives to the typical fast-food chains. SWIPEBY is growing with 55+ restaurants to choose from; Triad favorites include Canteen Market and Bistro, The Porch, Quanto Basta, Willow’s Bistro, Village Juice Co., King’s Crab Shack, Mi Pueblo, and The Loop.
