Yesterday we had a great soil lab where the 5th graders assisted. The 5th graders collected soil from three different spots around campus. They made an extra bucket from one of the destinations, which was the crime scene soil. Then the Forensics students had to process the soil and determine which was the crime scene soil by their calculations. It was lots of fun!

The "Art in Motion" fall performance is becoming an ESD tradition. It is a lovely way to express beautiful art with dance. Ms. Dawson is so creative and does a wonderful job with unique ideas and choreography. It has been so much fun to be part of the ESD dance program and experience how far it has come over the past several years under Ms. Dawson's direction. She is an excellent dance teacher and genuinely cares about the progress and well being of each student.

My senior buddies are so sweet and so much fun. I always look forward to seeing them. Today on twin day it was exciting to be dressed alike and I learned a lot about friendship too. What an amazing tradition that I got to be a part of.

Spending time with my Advisory is one of the best parts of my day! We sit together in Chapel and at lunch. We also have Advisory time during the day. For Advisory time, we meet in the library since I am the Middle School Librarian. We learn, read, grow and have fun!

Last Friday, ESD hosted the fourth annual Fiesta Friday before the varsity football game. The Fiesta was so fun because the Lower, Middle and Upper school were all in the same place to celebrate. It was also a very exciting night because announcements regarding the Lower School moving onto the Middle and Upper School campus were made! Over 2,000 parents, students, alumni, alumni parents, teachers, staff, grandparents, and friends were on hand to commend the special occasion. We are lucky to have the Parents' Association who helped put the event together and for the 400 students, teachers, staff, and volunteers who made the pregame show one for the books! Clark the Eagle also made a special appearance!
