In May 2022, I graduate from high school and have to think about the next four years of my life. It seems surreal when I think about it. What college will I attend? What will my major be?

The assignment required me to make a packet, model, and presentation for a Parisian monument of my choice.

Most of you didn’t have cell phones, and many of you didn’t have the internet. How did you get to know people? How did you form new relationships? No, really... Did you have to ask out the person you fancied by actually walking up and asking for their number?

The class of 2020 was already poised to be a memorable class in Day School's history by bringing a collectively robust set of talents, leadership skills, and strong school spirit. But if there was ever any doubt about just how amazing these EDS graduates are, it was wiped away by a pandemic where they faced many disappointments with courage, resilience, and celebration of their familial bond.

Middle School English teacher Mrs. Craft gave an assignment before spring break to listen to a mindfulness video and reflect on it with retrospect to all that's going on in the world.

As part of their English class, our eighth graders recently read the book Tuesdays with Morrie. On Halloween, they took a special field trip to The Good Samaritan Home to spend time interacting with the residents there.
