English instructor Clare MacKenzie always thought of herself as a humanities person, not a science person. Little did she know that there was an itty-bitty scientist lurking inside her. She encourages students to think of themselves in many ways so that they don’t become trapped in one area of study. Hear her here.
School Council organized today’s assembly, posing questions to administrators on such topics as school store hours, after school PE, Internet policies, and financial concerns. Prepared questions were supplemented with questions from the floor.
English instructor Todd Matthew encourages students to slow down and hang out. Loitering won’t necessarily lead to mischief or vandalism, but may allow us to appreciate our surroundings. He tells about his trek through northern England, when he often loitered, taking in the local flavor. Hear him here.
It’s so weird to see the campus so quiet at 5PM (at least from a former student’s perspective), though it is still a lovely sight.
While summer doesn’t quite seem like summer with the torrential downpours Upstate NY has been experiencing, taking a nice photo of the Emma campus was (evidently) manageable. Although not much activity is happening on campus (especially after 2:45PM when GirlSummer, EWS’s summer program for young girls, gets out), it still manages to remain picturesque. For now, the chapel (shown above) and all of the other Hogwarts-esque buildings stand relatively empty as they wait for the students and faculty to fill them again in the fall…Don’t worry, though, returning students and faculty…There are still two whole months left in the summer. Enjoy them!
