Happy Thanksgiving!

Wishing you and your family a happy Thanksgiving! We're grateful to have incredible people in our Torrey community. Thank you for your love and support of LJCDS.
Connecting with Nature
By Melanie Baier, head of Lower School

Last year, LJCDS started an initiative to put the “country” back in our school by planting trees and bushes around campus. Beautiful greenery now surrounds the Lower School playground. These trees were not just planted to hide or soften up the rather large wall encircling that side of our campus. They were also planted to bring our students back to nature and are part of our students’ educational environment.
Budgeting Athletics
By Jeff Hutzler, director of athletics

We are very fortunate at LJCDS to have a robust athletic department budget that empowers us to attract and hire outstanding coaches and provide the resources that our student-athletes need to be successful. Our coaches are among the finest in San Diego, and we’re proud of the quality of our athletic facilities, equipment and uniforms. 
Thankful Hearts
We asked our Middle and Upper School students what they are thankful for. What they shared is heartwarming.
