Friday, April 8 - a beautiful spring day many Episcopal students and teachers will remember for a very long time! Our community of leaders, teachers, learners and friends, gathered together on the front lawn to dance, drum, cheer and pose for the largest group photo in the school's history...and of course share birthday cake and ice cream in celebration of Episcopal's 50th birthday.
Many thanks to the Parents' Guild and the leadership of Aimee Broussard '85 and Deane Frazier '82 for coordinating this special celebration of gratitude, love and friendship.
"Only the Parents' Guild of Episcopal School of Baton Rouge could organize and serve graciously ice cream and birthday cake to over 950 students and more than 100 faculty and staff in 30 minutes! The Parent's Guild leaders came up with the idea of an "all hands" birthday party and carried it off well.
I wanted current students to hear where they fit into the whole 50 year thing. I tried to express to them how the school founders -- some of whom I know -- would be gratified with the accomplishments and character of the present student body. They heard me say that I sense in our students today not only grand potential but, more importantly, an admirable quality of character. Like our Mission & Ministry foresees, I believe they will have purposeful lives. The pictures tell a joyous story," commented Hugh McIntosh, Head of School.
