    Camp Habitat

    Fifth Grade students will be working with Habitat for Humanity on this year’s service-learning project. The playhouse project, informally known as “Camp Habitat” will take place on February 5-6, 2019. The playhouses will be going to Head Start programs and we have elected to fundraise to cover the cost of the materials so that we can provide them to Head Start Programs and low-income military family, which we’re hoping to meet by the end of the school year in June. Families are welcome to donate online here (tax-deductible) and Grade 5 students will work together to fundraise for this very important and exciting effort. We also are in need of parent volunteers to make this project happen. Parents need not be 5th grade families to volunteer for this project… we will accept ANY ADULT FAMILY MEMBER! Parents can volunteer to help out by filling out this form to be either a parent volunteer or a “build captain” on either day (2/5/19 or 2/6/19… OR BOTH!) To be a build captain (on either or both days!) you must attend a training and can register for one by clicking here. Currently all of them say “Join waitlist” so it’s important that people sign up and once we have at least two people for a certain time, then we will open it up for an actual training. If you went through a build captain training last year… no need to go through the training again. Questions? Concerns? Email Ms. Zeavin at hzeavin@ljcds.org!

  • Speaker Series: Dr. Amy Parish | Reflections on Our Closest Living Relatives and Ourselves: Lessons from the Bonobo Sisterhood

    Please join me in welcoming our colleague Amy Parish on Thursday, December 13th from 3:15-4:15p in the Community Hall.
     
     
    Topic:
     
    Reflections on Our Closest Living Relatives and Ourselves:  Lessons from the Bonobo Sisterhood
     
    Dr. Amy Parish is an interdisciplinary scholar who teaches English in the Upper School at La Jolla Country Day School. She also has taught at University of Southern California in the Anthropology, Gender Studies, Arts and Letters and Public Health departments and programs since 1999. Dr. Parish is one of the world’s leading experts on the social and sexual behavior of the bonobo. Bonobos and chimpanzees are the two closest living relatives of humans living today. She discovered that the social system of the bonobo is unusual in many respects: females form real and meaningful bonds in the absence of kinship and females attack and dominate males. She was the first to characterize bonobo society as a matriarchy.  In all of her research, Dr. Parish uses an evolutionary, bio-cultural, feminist, and interdisciplinary approach to shed light on the origins of human behavior. In 2008, she received a Mellon Award for excellence in faculty mentoring of undergraduate students. Dr. Parish teaches with the goal of helping students to internalize learning enough to pursue it in the future in their own ways. She wants active learners to emerge—students who make sense of the world through their own eyes, experiences, and values, so that they might be significantly enriched by their educational experiences. She is a frequent interlocutor in the ALOUD dialogue series at the Los Angeles Public Library and her work has been featured in Ms. Magazine and the New York Times. She has appeared on Nova, National Geographic Explorer, NPR, and Discovery Health Channel productions. Dr. Parish is a fellow of the Los Angeles Institute for the Humanities.

    Parents and guardians are welcome to join us for Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville’s look back on the legacy of Fred Rogers, from the show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, focusing on his radically kind ideas.
