Need to Know March 17

Winterim is officially launched! Students are making cheese, exploring international and domestic destinations, slicing virtual fruit in virtual reality, mastering their axe throwing skills, strategizing in escape rooms, supporting Lower School students, preparing to go backcountry skiing, and so much more. Winterim is such a welcome change of pace - no matter what course a student is in, it allows them to take a deep dive and really experience something fully for a week, often in a completely immersive environment. We look forward to sharing more stories and photos from Winterim next week. 

We are writing to inform you about our club called Career Explorers which is designed to give students the opportunity to learn about various parents' professions. Every two months or so we have a Zoom meeting which includes 1-3 OES parent speakers detailing their job and how they ended up there. This gives students the opportunity to explore various professions that might  interest them as well as an understanding of what their path ahead might look like. If you are interested in being a parent speaker at a future meeting, we invite you to fill out this Interest Form
