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!

4th Grade Cupcake Competition

Student Author: ESD Fourth Graders

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

Honors Chemistry Experiments

Student Author: Trevor Hobbs '18

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!

AP Art Awards Reception

Student Author: Reese Vandeven '17

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!

Girls Basketball Senior Night

Student Author: Sydney Helbing '17

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!

Local Elementary School Service

Student Authors: Biz Newsom '20 and Sydney Helbing '17

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!!!

Presidential Inauguration Leadership Summit

Student Author: Tommy Hessel '17

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.

Even though inaugurations are not a once in a lifetime events, and the procedures governing them rarely change, no inauguration is ever the same. This year's inauguration was a testament to that distinctiveness. The swearing in brought together people from all over the nation, and this inauguration more so than usual, was representative of the entire U.S., not just the urban city centers and suburbs, but the actual rural whole of America (especially seen through the amount of camo outerwear). Regardless of ideas being shared and positions taken, one could feel multiple levels of American society represented within the crowd just waiting to see the historic and peaceful exchange of power that has made the United States the nation it is today. In the words of the president, I do hope that these next four years will hold more power in the hands of the people.
