The acorn has a special place in our school seal for a very important reason. An acorn only appears on a fully mature oak tree; therefore, it is considered a symbol of the patience needed to attain goals over a long period of time. It represents perseverance and hard work. Just as it takes water, sun, and air for an acorn to grow into a strong tree, it takes the care and commitment of dedicated teachers, coaches, and parents over many years to help our students grow into fine young adults. The acorn symbolizes the intentional way in which our students are Country Day Ready.
