2017 Senior Farewell: Sarah Weidman '17

This year the Senior Class selected Sarah Weidman ‘17 to give the Senior Farewell. “Welcome, everyone! In case you don’t know, we don’t make the valedictorian speak at graduation. The reason I’m here is because I gave a teaser-trailer speech to my class, and they voted for me to speak on their behalf at graduation. My sample speech was long, full of imagery, memories, and emotion. Tears were shed, and not all of them by me. But once I was chosen, thanks guys...

Southwest Discovery ECS | The Emotional Ending

We woke up knowing it would be our last day here, and knowing this made it an emotional morning. We started the day with service. Many students went back to the Pueblo Day School to work with the kids in the kindergarten through 5th grade classrooms as well as play with them. As we arrived at the threshold of each classroom door, the kids faces lit up with joy and excitement. “They’re back!” shouted many of the kids. We made the most of our time with the kids, and some of us were even...

Scandinavia ECS | From Construction to Economics, in Stockholm

      Though we have returned home safe and sound, we thought it would be wrong to not post a quick blog about the last few days of our trip. On Sunday we awoke to a lovely breakfast then headed off for a quick breeze through Skansen, a local outdoor museum about Swedish life in the relatively distant past. It was a chilly day, but the breakneck pace that Mrs. Hedden and Dr. Young call “brisk” was just enough exercise to keep everyone nice and warm. We explored a house and the...

Expédition Quebec | Final Day in Quebec

Today was sort of a different day for us. We slowed down a bit after returning from our homestay families by taking time to explore. Before we explored, we went to the Québec Parliament and learned about their governmental systems as well as important figures in their government’s history. This was a good way to tie up our trip because it allowed us to reflect on how some of the issues we have been learning about, such as separatism and bilingualism, are dealt with in Québec. We also...

Law & Order ECS | Beyond the Reasonable Doubt - Preparing for the Mock Trial

In the final week, Mock Trial and presentation of projects have become our priority.
