Rappahannock News - - SCHOOLS -

De­light­ing the au­di­ence with their tal­ent and poise, the Wake­field Coun­try Day School (WCDS) Lower School Drama Group pre­sented a Fri­day af­ter­noon mati­nee, “The Nutcracker Prince,” in which a nutcracker with a mag­i­cal spell ar­rives just in time for Christ­mas Eve.

PRE­SERV­ING THE EN­VI­RON­MENT

Join­ing mem­bers of the Friends of the Rap­pa­han­nock and the lo­cal De­part­ment of Forestry, the WCDS En­vi­ron­men­tal science class planted trees last week on a Flint Hill farm to help pre­serve the health of the Rap­pa­han­nock River and the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay by cre­at­ing a ri­par­ian buf­fer with trees.

The stu­dents also con­ducted a macroin­vet­er­ate sam­pling and wa­ter qual­ity chem­i­cal tests to ex­am­ine the con­di­tion of the Rap­pa­han­nock trib­u­tary.

RCHS NURSE AIDES

The RCHS nurse aide stu­dents had their clin­i­cal ori­en­ta­tion on Fri­day, Nov. 30th.

The stu­dents re­ceived a tour of the Her­itage Hall nurs­ing home in Front Royal. Dur­ing the tour, they ob­served ac­tiv­i­ties which in­cluded arm band stretches and Christ­mas or­na­ment mak­ing with shav­ing cream and food col­or­ing.

In ad­di­tion, the stu­dents learned how to prop­erly use an elec­tronic blood pres­sure cuff.
