OES Photos of the Week: Second Grade Field Research
Enjoy this special slideshow of OES second graders and their adventure this week to Smith and Bybee Natural Area! The students conducted field research by working on their observational sketching and note-taking skills. They also, as OES educator Janet Schilling shared, "pondered how they could be agents of change by brainstorming solutions to the needs they observed."
Last Friday and Saturday, the OES Middle School hosted the annual Northwest Association of Independent Schools (NWAIS) Student Leadership and Diversity Retreat.
This week at OES we paid homage to two very different yet linked holidays: Mardi Gras and Ash Wednesday.
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.
