With Upper School students plowing through their final assessments of the semester, Upper School Counselor Erin Romano '01 and Learning Resource Coordinator Meghan Powers spent the week helping students to “de-stress."
A faculty, staff, and administrator panel of judges put on their best “shark” impressions Tuesday for the OES Middle School’s third annual Shark Tank-like business presentations. Seventh-graders pitched their novel innovations to six OES "sharks" in front of a “live studio audience” of family, friends, and teachers to see if they could drum up "investors" for their projects.
One class of first-graders were paid a special visit on Thursday from their Upper School buddies who took a break from assessments to make the trip down to the Lower School. Anthony Villaseñor’s first-grade students paired with Stephanie Portman’s Global Social Movements class of juniors and seniors to learn how young people are making a difference in social issues like climate change.
OES was honored to welcome to campus on Wednesday noted digital media and technology expert Devorah Heitner, the author of Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (and Survive) in Their Digital World and founder of Raising Digital Natives.
