Today was a fun learning day in AP Physics. Our teacher, Mr. Varvir, is teaching us about how planets warp the solar system. We used a model of the solar system to show how mass warps the orbit of planets and matter in the solar system!

Here at ESD, the library serves as a place to study, research, or to just have some quiet time. You will find people here in the morning, breaks, study halls, and after school. I tend to come here in the mornings when I want to get ahead on some school work or do some studying before a test!

Yesterday, AP Latin translated their longest sentence of the year! We are currently studying Caesar's firsthand account of the Gallic Wars from over 2,000 years ago, which is known for a lot of run-on sentences (sometimes a single sentence can span pages!). Although the class can be challenging, we're happy that such a unique and advanced course is offered to those who have been studying the Romance language since Middle School.

Asian Council hosted a Thai lunch yesterday for all members of the Upper School, whether they were council members or not. It was a fun and tasty opportunity to enjoy the cuisine of another culture while learning about its significance!

Fifth grade girls (and boys!) helped stuff and make dolls today after lunch for the Dolls for the Hobby Crafters organization. ESD has been committed to the Hobby Crafters Dolls Project for a few years now. The dolls are made and delivered to children across the DFW area. The U.S. nurse says she volunteers at Children's Hospital and witnessed some of the patients receiving these very dolls. It was nice to hear how things come full circle with projects like this! We are able to make about 250 dolls each year.

Birthdays are a big deal at ESD. You get birthday blessings during Chapel, sweet treats for your Advisory during lunch and sometimes your buddies even decorate your locker! Happy Birthday Parker! (Class of '24)

The Middle School choir sang in Chapel yesterday. This week's message was the "Week of Wonder" as the movie version of the book Wonder opens on our first day of Thanksgiving break. We wonder everyday in our Chapel time about who we are, our place in this diverse and dynamic world, and how to best use our gifts to help our neighbors. As we enter into Thanksgiving break may our hearts and minds be full of gratitude to God for all our blessings, beginning with the community we share and our common work for the growth of our students.
