Inaugural Lower School Battle of the Books

Congratulations to Sophie Arnold, Gabi Hart and Chloe Rubin from team Read through the Knights who won this year’s event. Sixteen fourth and fifth grade teams competed. Students tested their knowledge of the books “Flora and Ulysses: An Illuminated Adventure”, “I Survived the American Revolution, 1776” and “Fenway and Hattie”.
Let's Go Fly a Kite!
My Little Pony. Spider Man. A butterfly. Even a helicopter.
The skies above the football practice field were filled with a wide range of kites this week as the seniors and their kindergarten buddies celebrated the annual Episcopal Kite Day. The tradition marks the last gathering of the buddies, who have spent time together for special occasions throughout the year.
Kindergarten parent Michele Perez says she and her daughter Ella love the buddy outings. She says the connection with the senior buddy has been very special for Ella, who has actually saved every card she’s received from her friend.
Tek Webster, whose son Coren “Ren” is also in kindergarten says it was hard to tell who was enjoying the kite flying more, the older or younger students. Webster says the experience is nice for both the kindergarteners and the seniors and that it helps seniors reminisce on when they were kindergarteners themselves.
Many of the seniors said they actually couldn’t remember the last time they flew a kite. No doubt this recent experience will be something they remember long after commencement in May. As for the kindergarteners, it won’t be long before they’ll be a senior buddy to another group of young students.
Second Grade World Travelers
Vacation season will soon be upon us and the Episcopal second graders are ready to make a travel recommendation. Students recently studied the world, including continents, countries and their own hometown. To celebrate the completion of the project, the young explorers acted as travel agents encouraging the adults in their lives to travel to faraway places.
