RCDS Events

5th Annual Young Alumni Turkey Bowl – this year, more than 75 young alumni returned to RCDS’ campus just before Thanksgiving in order to visit with faculty, visit with each other and also to watch the first-ever Upper School powder puff football game.  Congratulations go to the 7th grade girls, who edged out the 8th grade girls in the final seconds of play.  Click below to view photos from this event.
