Upper School boarding students took a trip to the mountain last weekend for their first off-campus outing since returning to OES. A group of six students visited Mt. Hood Skibowl for cosmic tubing under disco lights and laser beams.
Ten of OES's top mathletes recently competed in the annual MATHCOUNTS competition, placing in the top 18. Jay W. ‘27 earned seventh place and is representing OES at the Chapter Invitational Competition today.
It’s been a busy past few weeks in the first grade as the return to school for campus-based instruction continues. First graders have spent time in the community garden near Fariss Hall, read a variety of books, and even drawn their own comics.
The OES community was virtually visited by New York Times bestselling author, educator, and activist Renée Watson last week. Watson read a few of her poems and book excerpts and shared her experiences growing up in Portland and how those encounters inspire her writing.
