First Grade Owl Pellet Dissection

Student Author: ESD First Graders

"We think it is so interesting that we found seeds in the owl pellets when we know, owls don't eat seeds."
"We think that the owl ate something that eats seeds!"
"Our goal was to get all the bones that we found out of the pellets."

Monarch Butterfly Study

First graders have been studying monarch butterflies this past month.  12 butterflies were released from the Butterfly Gardens to migrate to Mexico and the students sang a goodbye song.

"Monarch butterflies have very soft wings."
"They lay tiny eggs in milkweed."

Primer Costume Drive

Student Author: ESD Primer Student

We collected adult and children's costumes for one week at the Lower School.  Students made collection boxes and posters, and we went around the school each morning to collect donations.  We will now sort them and deliver to Family Gateway on October 26th.  Family Gateway is a homeless shelter that supports families as they work toward a stable living situation and is located downtown Dallas. When we deliver the costumes, we will also be decorating their community room for their Halloween party.  The kids have been making decorations in art class for the last few weeks. Primer students collected 341 costumes!

"Everyday, we get LOADS of costumes from ESD families. I am really glad we can spread the costumes out an give them to lots of children." -Primer Student

Blessing of the Pets

Student Authors: ESD Third Graders

"Today, we got our dogs blessed.  I have a chocolate lab named Ziggy who is the cousin of my friend Stella's dog, Trigger.  Father Towers said a blessing for Ziggy because it is St. Francis Day and I hope that the blessing will make my dog not chew up my shoes every time it catches his eye."  
"In carpool this morning, Father Towers blessed our dog Molly and gave her a charm with St. Francis on it because today is his feast day and he is the patron saint of animals!"

International Dot Day

Student Author: ESD First Graders

The Lower School celebrated International Dot Day. After reading The Dot by Peter Reynolds, we learned we are all called to make our mark!  First grade students are inspired by George Seurat and his pointillism technique as they create monarch butterflies! 

"Dot Day means that you wear something with dots on it to school and we do lots of fun projects that all start with a dot."  "Starting with a dot, you can create anything!"  - First Grade students
