Last night was great! I had the best time and made a friend. My mom got to meet some new ESD moms too! The balloon guy and face paint were the best!

Today, ESD fourth graders participated in a Leadership Institute lead by eleven seniors. They still had to work through lunch by coming up with a group theme to decorate their cupcakes and then present to the whole grade. Some decoration idea included:
- Number 8 - 8 group members and an 8 also looks like an infinity symbol representing the infinite possibilities we have
- Greatest Fear - if we decorate our cupcake as our fear, once we eat them it means we conquer our fears
- Color Circles - each color represents each one of our group members and the circles show that even though we are all unique we are all working together

Today, in Honors Chemistry, we did a lab to determine the volume of one mole of gas. We used magnesium strips to produce hydrogen gas in an acidic environment. This is one of the many hands-on experiments that we do in chemistry. What a great way to start off the week!

Since today was such a beautiful day, my English class read The Great Gatsby outside next to the quarry! My whole class really enjoys this book and enjoying the nice day while reading a classic made for a great class.

Every year, Seniors that have been involved in some form of AP Art have a show and reception in the Frank building. I went to my first show as a Freshman and have watched students before me present their work. It was surreal that I was a part of my own, ELEVATE this year. Each of us presented some of our portfolios that demonstrated how we have grown as artists and our journey at ESD. Being able to share our hard work with friends, family, and each other, made the time we devoted well worth it. What will be one of the saddest parts about leaving ESD will be not being a part of such an incredible fine arts program anymore!

This is a picture of Me and Charlotte North on basketball senior night! We play all three sports together and have even been playing basketball together since 2nd grade. We're the only two seniors and captains this year. Senior night was really sad because it's our last basketball season together ever. Except we did play Hockaday and beat them which is always fun!

Today, I went to Stephen Foster Elementary, ESD's sister school, with my class and we were put into 4th grade classrooms. We read "The Lorax" to the students and then did an arts and crafts project about the book. I had so much fun and look forward to going back!
Este es Rivas y yo a la Foster Elementary. We are in Spanish 5 and go to the elementary school every day 6 and teach los estudiantes!! They are so cute and we are building a relationship with them which is really cool. We help them with their English by grading their work, reading them books, and other fun things. Nos gusta foster elementary!!!

The program I went on is called Envision: Presidential Inaugural Leadership Summit. It hosted 2,500 students and had several prominent speakers like Carly Fiorina, Colin Powell, Martin O'Malley, and Abby Wambach to name a few.
