Middle Schoolers Lead the Way at Diversity Retreat
Last Friday and Saturday, the OES Middle School hosted the annual Northwest Association of Independent Schools (NWAIS) Student Leadership and Diversity Retreat.

Raucous Celebration, Then Reflection: Mardi Gras and Ash Wednesday at OES
This week at OES we paid homage to two very different yet linked holidays: Mardi Gras and Ash Wednesday.

The Life of Frederick Douglass Captures Seventh Graders' Attention
OES continues to celebrate Black History Month. In a seventh grade English class, students are currently reading and discussing ​"Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass​," the abolitionist's memoir.

On Wednesday night, people from many different parts of the OES community joined our Boarding families for a dual celebration: honoring both the Lunar New Year and Valentine's Day.

The girls' varsity basketball team deserves high praise for their play against Portland Adventist Academy this week in the second round of the Lewis & Clark League playoffs.

Although they fell by a final score of 48-43, their relentless effort until the final buzzer was evident. Congratulations on a great season!
