ESD high school, middle school and lower school students, as well as alumni, came together with members from Saint Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church to create meal bags which will be donated to the people affected by Hurricane Harvey. Hosted in our very own dining commons, hundreds of thousands of bags were made over the span of 4 hours. The bags consisted of noodles, tomato sauce packets, and soy protein that boils in the water so the meal is filling and nutritious.

Girls on the Run kicked off the fall season this week on our lower school campus! Girls on the Run is a national program that inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. The season culminates with a 5K run!

Ms. Neil's 5th grade science class dropped what they were doing and came running when they heard about a large spider devouring a locust in it's web in the Quarry Courtyard window. Ms. Neil explained that the spider would turn the locust guts to liquid and then suck them out. We talked about how the exoskeleton would then simply dry out and be useless. We went outside to take pics of the spider so we could go back to class and identify what kind of spider it is. This is my first year at ESD and it was really cool to run out of class and go learn from something you don't see everyday.

The ESD senior class '18 just returned from our Senior retreat at Wolf Run:
It was a great way to start the year and we really connected as a class. Photographed below is the candle-lighting ceremony. The light from the senior candle will be used again at the end of the year at Pass It On, to represent the seniors passing down the responsibilities and traditions to the next wave of students.

On August 10th, the ESD JV and Varsity Cheer team showcased their new routine which they have been working on during their team retreat over the last three days.

The girls put on quite the performance for the team and many parents who are now very excited to see what this talented team has in store for the rest of the season!

Freshman enjoy watching the Pass it On ceremony, ESD's oldest tradition. Seniors pass the light of Christ onto the 8th graders, as the seniors get ready to graduate and 8th graders enter high school.

Yesterday, we had a scheduled fire drill. Our new awesome head of security has set up a new meeting location for when we do find our selves in a real fire. The whole school is able to fit here comfortably and it's a nice efficient place to be.
