Teachers and students in all three divisions got into the Halloween spirit this year. Here’s a look at some of the fun.
Pumpkins with Pops
The smell of freshly carved pumpkins filled the Greer Center as first graders and their pops took part in the Pumpkins with Pops event. This annual tradition has become a favorite among families with dads using saws, knives and stencils to carve a variety of unique and clever designs. Students also had the opportunity to learn more about their pumpkins at the measuring and weighing stations.
How do you make a science lesson on the engineering process a little spookier and more exciting? Turn off the lights! Sixth grade teacher Stacy Hill challenged students to build a pumpkin pillar with only 20 notecards, scotch tape and scissors. The classroom was only lit with black lights and the pumpkins were painted with glow in the dark paint.
Trick or Treat!
Prek-4 students got an early start on their Halloween festivities with a little trick-or-treating in Upper School. Many of the teachers joined in the fun with costumes of their own.
Are you afraid of heights? How about snakes? Episcopal eighth graders enjoyed their retreat to Mo Ranch this week. Students participated in a range of team building and leadership activities including a ropes course and a canoe trip. There was also a chance to spend time in nature and to get up close with a few creatures. A panda and a few Care Bears were even spotted in the crowd.
