#tbt to March of this year, when OES's beloved Upper School Service Learning Coordinator Robin Schauffler traveled to Japan and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial.

In Robin's own words, "I had folded cranes years ago, when my school sent 1,000 cranes to the Memorial, but I couldn't reconstruct how to do it. I got help from several current students and from Mark Fernandez '16, a well-known master crane-folder.


I managed to leave for Japan with about 50 cranes. On the train to Hiroshima I strung them all together."

This is Robin's last school year after 14 years at OES, and we will miss her dearly!
