Middle School Cross Country Runs Away With Districts
We got some great news from Middle School Cross Country coach (and OES French educator!) Jaime O'Dell this week:
"Our Middle School Cross Country Boys' and Girls' teams just won districts [on Tuesday]! It's the first time in OES history that we've swept with both wins. The girls' team finished 30 points ahead of the second place team, while the boys had a 20-point spread.
They ran with such heart and determination; most of the students did not PR during their races and they still won."
Runners finishing in the top 10 of the girls' race included Wylly W. '22 (5th place), Mia G. '24 (7th place), and Maeve L. '23 (8th place). OES boys in the top 10 were Tucker B. (3rd place), Nate S. (6th place), and Patrick R. (7th place), who are all members of the Class of 2022.
Well done all-around, Aardvarks!
Our Upper School Debate team has had some stellar successes lately!
Last week young adult novelist Adam Silvera spoke to our Upper School community about everything from the craft of writing to explorations of identity.
Recently Ms. Duden's fifth-grade class clambered into canoes and set off to paddle around the wetlands . . . and then encountered something entirely unexpected.
What do you get when you add 10 Middle School Math Club members, the hours of a Saturday morning, and four different rounds of mathematical competitions? That would be the OES Math Meet!
