Today kicks off the Commencement festivities for the Class of 2023! For the last month of their time at EHS, our seniors completed their externships at various businesses around the country. Here are some highlights gathered by the EHS Advancement extern Audrey D. ’23 from her class’ four weeks out in the “real world.”
Happy EHS! Katrina Reed’s American Literature: Poetry, Essay, Story, and Song class ventured to the Museum of the Bible to explore the allusions embedded in Kendrick Lamar’s Pulitzer Prize-winning album, DAMN. The album harvests several spiritual, biblical, and political references. The trip also served as an opportunity to gain perspective on how influential the Bible has been on American music, literature, film, fashion, education, and politics.
We hope you have a box of tissues ready! April 28 marked the last day of classes and the last Chapel for the Class of 2023. To celebrate their time at Episcopal, they treated the community to a final performance of “I’ll Always Remember You” by Hannah Montana.
Episcopal’s Healthy Choices Program brings guest speakers to campus to share information about pertinent health choices that affect our well-being. In April, Dr. W. Christopher Winter, MD, neurologist, author, and sleep specialist, visited EHS to speak with the student body about the importance of sleep — addressing wellness, performance, and how one goes about getting a good, restorative sleep. Learn more about Dr. Winter and how he encouraged students to embrace sleep as their superpower at the link in our bio.

Happy EHS! Continuing a four-year tradition paused during the pandemic, School Counsel Stefanie Smith took her Introduction to Constitutional Law students to The Supreme Court of the United States to attend an oral argument for the Counterman v. Colorado case, which focused on the First Amendment. Undeterred that only 30 tickets were to be available to the public, the class of 19 — accompanied by teachers — camped out overnight to secure entry. “This Flexperience is experiencing constitutional law at its intellectual pique. It is always memorable, and the students’ excitement and engagement never cease to amaze me.” Smith said.

Mrs. Reed’s poetry workshop students attended open mic night at local restaurant Busboys and Poets. More than half the class recited spoken word in front of a packed house.

As noted by the emcee, these young poets proved themselves to be the future and the present.
