Virtual Opening Day Belltower Ceremony 2020
Our 2020-21 school year began on Wednesday, Sept. 9 with a virtual Belltower Ceremony to ring in the new school year. Usually, approximately 1000 students, families, faculty, staff, and alumni join the ceremony in person, but this year they joined from afar for the first-ever live broadcast of the ceremony. If you missed the broadcast, or just want to watch it again, the ceremony begins at the 20:50 mark in the below recording.

Gathering as a community is a hallmark of OES. Throughout the year, we intend to celebrate our annual events in new and creative ways as we observe physical distancing as required for health and safety. Though the in-person event may be postponed or held virtually, look for communications, opportunities to engage through social media, and videos as we mark these special moments on our calendar this school year.
