Diwali Chapel Delights the Eyes (Photos)
Enjoy this week's slideshow of photos highlighting Tuesday's special Diwali Chapel. Diwali is known as the Festival of Lights, and "spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance, and hope over despair."
Thank you to our Chaplains, employee and student speakers, and performers for helping to create a beautiful celebration.

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.
