Today in wheel throwing, our teacher, Mrs. Brault, did a demo on throwing larger pieces. She threw 30 pounds of clay into a beautiful bowl! Everyone in my class is a beginner and we have been focusing on cylinders and bowls. Students just starting out usually throw around 2 pounds of clay. Mrs. Brault did an amazing job!

My Tenth grade advisory enjoyed some time in the "tech-free" zone today to work as a team to complete a puzzle. It's always nice to take a break and put away the phones/computers and go back in time to the ways we used to entertain ourselves!

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.

The sophomore class went to the North Texas Food Bank after taking the PSAT last Wednesday, October 11. We sorted through various food products such as peanut butter, soup, and canned fruits and vegetables to make boxed meals for people in need. It was such a fun service project and we ended up making meals for about 15,000 people. This is a picture of the sophomore field hockey players and their coach, Coach Hudson, at NTFB.

As a follow up to Senior/5th grade buddy day, these sweet Seniors, Shelby Stansbury and Mary Crow Miller, showed their precious 5th grade Buddy, Jamie, just how much they cared for her by attending her volleyball game and cheering her on! #actionsspeaklouderthanwords #leadersandfriends #character #ESDtraditions

Yesterday, the Class of 2020 went to the North Texas Food Bank to serve our community after the PSAT! It was really fun to volunteer with classmates and faculty as a group. I feel like we really made a difference because there were so many of us there which made it efficient to pack food boxes.
