Dear Diary,

Our scholars are so talented! This week, I got to visit our 5th grade Science Fair and I was so impressed with the creativity and expertise with which our students presented their work. There were projects about exploding candy, nail polish durability, how epilepsy affects the brain, and how mold grows on bread (just to name a few!) As I walked around the displays, I was proud of how the students talked about their work and their findings. During the day, the students were able to come visit the exhibits and at night, we had a special time just for the parents to see their work. It was a really cool celebration of their academic work!

Wednesday was the school celebration of Greek Independence Day. In 1821, Greece declared its independence from the Ottoman Empire and the day is filled with festivities to celebrate—just like our own Independence Day on July 4th! Our 6th and 7th grade scholars performed dances, poems, and readings while the rest of the school watched. It was neat to see how they shared this important part of Greek history with our school.

National Junior Honors Society hosted the 2nd annual Blood Drive and I enjoyed seeing all the people that came to donate. I don’t think owls can give blood, but if we could, I would donate to help save a fellow owl. Miss Priganc said it only pinches a little, but it doesn’t hurt.

I am going to use some time this weekend to rest because I am going to DC next week with the 8th grade. It will be a really fun trip!
