Quiet, please!

Student Author: Abby Brand '20
 

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!

Guys and Dolls

Faculty Author: Mrs. Phelps, Director of Community Service Learning
 

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.

This Week in Middle School Chapel

Faculty Author: Rev. Heller
 

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.

SJES 8th Grade Visit

Student Author: Clayton Mulford '19
 

Today, St. John's 8th graders came to visit the Upper School campus and tour various classes. Pictured here is a handful of 8th graders in Mr. Larsen's sculpture class receiving a presentation from Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and a Senior. The high schoolers represented each sculpture class offered at ESD - from Intro to 3D Design to Sculpture II and all the way to AP 3D Design! The SJES students then enjoyed cookies in the courtyard before heading back to school. Thanks for coming to visit!

College Dance Day

Student Author: Mackenzie Fain-Parish '19
 

Dance at ESD can be taken in Middle and Upper School. In Middle School, dance can be one of the Fine Arts rotations chosen. In addition to rotations, there is an Honors Dance Program, which allows students to continue dancing outside of their rotation. They meet after school throughout the school year. In Upper School, dance can count as either a Fine Arts credit or an Athletics credit. We meet four days out of the week at 7:30 in the morning. Ms. Dawson teaches ballet, tap, jazz, pointe, and modern/contemporary. She also invites guest choreographers to come in and teach us combinations. Back in September, a choreographer came in and taught us a jazz-funk combination! This picture is from College Dance Day which took place at Collin College. We took two classes in the morning, one in the afternoon and then finished the day with a small showcase with students from participating schools and Collin College.

Cards for Jacob

Student Authors: Middle Schoolers
 

We are spreading the Christmas cheer in November! Today during Flex, we wanted to help make cards for Jacob, a sick boy in the hospital who Mr. Jenkins spoke about in Chapel today.  It makes us happy knowing that we are going to make someone else happy! Jacob's motto is "Live life like a penguin" - what a great motto to live by! We are so excited to share holiday cheer with Jacob!

The power of words makes the pictures and stories really come to life. The shrieks from the audience made me happy on our ghost story show day! Reader's Theater is so fun.
