Dear EDS Community,
It’s time to nominate a teacher for the 2018 Christie Owen Excellence in Teaching Award.
The Christie Owen Excellence in Teaching Award was created May 2004 in honor of Mrs. Christie Owen, upon her retirement as Lower School Division Head, to recognize each year a faculty member who particularly demonstrates those qualities that Mrs. Owen so valued and nurtured in her years at EDS.
Any member of the EDS community (faculty, staff, parents, students, alumni, etc.) may nominate a teacher. In order to be eligible for the Christie Owen Excellence in Teaching Award, the faculty member must be in at least his/her third consecutive full year at EDS as a full-time teacher. Faculty members who have won the award within the past 5 years, as well as division heads and the headmaster, are not eligible. Eligible faculty members are listed in the drop-down menu on question #2 of the form.
Please submit nominations here by Thursday, March 29, 2018.
Congratulations to Bill Mundel and Laura Stubbs on winning best advisors at Model UN!
Another Olympic Day is in the books and the students did an outstanding job! The countries that were represented this year included: Canada, Chile, Italy, Jamaica, and United Kingdom. Grade levels performed routines in-between relay events. The first graders were magical as they performed their “This is Me” parachute routine, and 2nd grade got funky with the “Crazy Frog Routine”. Third grade rocked the floor with “Cupid Shuffle” and the fourth grade did a do-si-do to “Cotton Eye Joe”.
Thank you to our parent volunteers: Annie Smith, Lillian Magruder, Torina Williams, Andria Thomas, Julie Reeves, Jennifer Tucker, Kathi Trotter, Sabrina Pendergrass, Jana Jordan, and Amanda Martin. We couldn’t have done it without you!
The Threes celebrated their love of country by marching in the annual Patriotic Parade held in the EDS gymnasium last Thursday. These Threes marched to the National Anthem and Grand Old Flag. Mrs. Scheyer led the children in singing God Bless America. In conclusion, they performed their monument yoga poses. We are so proud of these young Americans and all they have learned about the U.S.A.
God Bless America!
