What is Country Market Day?

Country Market Day is GDS’s annual fall festival. This year is a special celebration as one of the first events at which we can say goodbye to the MacArthur Blvd. Lower/Middle School campus in anticipation of our unified campus in 2020! It is also our 50th year and your co-chair parents, Al Moseley and Nicole DeYampert (Adrienne ‘28) and Nicole Lewis Tyson (Maya ’27), are leading the efforts for a fabulous day!

Who's Coming?

This event is for the entire GDS community (all divisions!) and our GDS neighbors, and we encourage you to invite your friends. There will be activities for all ages, including kid crafts, delicious food, great games, a brand new Ninja Warrior obstacle course, and so much more!

Volunteers Needed

This festival is a parent/guardian-run event. All hands on deck! It’s imperative that we receive participation from our families to make this a great day for our entire community. There are opportunities for Middle School and High School students to participate as well. You can feel good about volunteering as all proceeds from the day benefit financial aid.
