The ABC's of the Vocabulary Parade
The 9th annual third grade vocabulary parade had it all! It was “patriotic” and “aerodynamic.” The students truly had an “ear” for words. It was an occasion fit for a “princess” and even a “queen”! Congratulations to this year’s “vigilant” group of students!
All are Welcome
Episcopal celebrated the Feast of Francis of Assisi with the annual Blessing of the Pets. From hermit crabs and fish, to tiny and large dogs, all animals were welcome.
All Smiles at the Triathlon
First graders wrapped up their Healthy Selves project-based learning unit with the annual triathlon. Students took the plunge in the school pool, pedaled across campus and then sprinted to the finish line.
Follow Your Dreams, PreK-4!
What do you want to be when you grow up? PreK-4 students recently explored this question with a career dress up day. Career choices ranged from a Chef to a Doctor, Astronaut and police officer. Regardless of the path students follow, teachers encouraged them to pursue their dreams. We can’t wait to see where life takes them!
Exploring the Earth in Middle School
Sixth graders recently had the whole world in their hands. Students in Stacy Hill’s science class used merge cubes to look within the earth’s layers and learn more about plate tectonics.
