I have had the pleasure of being taught by Mrs. Henderson in Honors Chemistry this year and she was one of my most favorite teachers ever. She was always so nice, understanding, and patient with us, and I know she loved her AP Psychology classes as well. We had a small going away party for her this past Monday and were able to partake in some of the things she always does on the last day of school! Students were able to stand under the emergency shower station, get soaked and have fun! We also ordered a couple of pizzas and made some cookies. We are going to miss Mrs. Henderson very much, but we are very glad she is able to have her life-saving surgery so she can be well again. We cannot wait to see her again in August and wish her a healthy, speedy recovery!

Thursday morning, ESD fine arts students left for Austin for one of my favorite new events, ISAS. We were able to spend the past three days attending workshops, performances, portfolio reviews, and critiques. I received very helpful feedback from my adjudicators. Plus, any time we weren’t watching or learning, we were able to enjoy time in the sun! It has been such an awesome experience - I’m so glad I got the opportunity to go!
