Head of School Eric Lombardi hosted his second annual Convocation for the start of school on Aug. 24, where all students, faculty and staff gathered in the Round Gym to introduce Kindergarteners to the Falcon community. The entire school wore their House shirts to showcase FWCD’s roots and traditions. Seniors escorted their Kindergarten buddies to the gym, after meeting them earlier in the week to give them their new shirts. Each quad of houses did the “D-O-W-N” cheer and found out some inside Country Day jokes in a Buzzfeed-like presentation.
