NEW! Advisor Spotlight! Larry! Larry loves working at a place where students can be in charge of their own learning. Watching students make discoveries, traveling with students, and seeing the art, writing, music, and intellectual creations his students produce brings him joy at work. Outside of work, Larry enjoys gardening, cycling, playing guitar, coding, reading and history. #lifegoalslarry
Bump, Set, Spike! ...or something like that. Students and staff participated in a volleyball game at Fall Celebration. True to EOC style, modifications were made to the game. Firstly, the ball was a large tennis ball. Secondly, it was decided that the ball could bounce in between touches by players. Made for a fun game for all skill levels!
As part of her senior project, Ahna led breakout session "Take a Likin' to Lichen" at Fall Celebration. Participants learned that lichen is an indicator species- one which identifies the conditions of an area. Our camp had lots of lichen- which means the air and enviromental quality is good there. One might see less lichen in urban areas due to pollution. Thank you Ahna!
Although the weather wasn't ideal, the eyes got quite a show at this year's Fall Celebration. We are always blown away by the wonderful, supportive community our students create at our all-school get togethers. Thank you for an incredible event! Keep your eyes peeled for snapshots of this year's Fall Celebration happenings.
Thank you for an incredible Fall Celebration! Just a reminder- there is no school next week, October 14-18, for conference break! Lucky you- because we do project based learning, you can still do school work during your week off!
No school next week, October 14-18, for conference break. But, if we know our students well enough, you'll continue to explore and learn- even without a morning advisory check-in.
