Kindness is Key

RCS students host Spirit Day to promote community and belonging.
Spirit Day 2023 was a huge success! Our CAFE Club (Cultural Awareness for Everyone, pictured above), the student elective group dedicated to promoting community and belonging, and led by Director of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Ridley Sperling and Associate Director of DEIB Marie Peña, organized Ripp’s second annual Spirit Day. Students and faculty were encouraged to wear purple in support of anti-bullying awareness and action, and $2 donations, if possible, were encouraged. In total, the RCS community raised almost $500 for the Trevor Project
Sophie Rosen ’25 shared, “The whole school dressed in purple to support anti-bullying, and it showed how we can all come together as a community to support one really good cause. CAFE is basically a safe space for all the kids who join. We organize things for the whole school, and our goal is just to make everyone feel accepted, whether you’re part of the LGBTQIA+ community or not.”
