Samaritan’s Purse Shoebox Gift
In the spirit of both Thanksgiving and Christmas, each ECS student is invited to pack a shoebox full of fun items that will be given to a child in need. Students will fill up the boxes with toys, school supplies, hygiene items, notes, pictures and prayers. This is a simple and fun way to spread the Gospel and insure that children in need will have gifts at the holiday season.
Our first semester of 2019 has been a busy one. This year, middle school started an elective class for 7th and 8th graders. We offer these electives on Tuesdays during mod 5, and they range from topics such as Improv to Book Club.
One of our electives has been a Speaker Series. The goal is to invite professionals from around the Madison area to speak to their background, education, and experiences that led up to their profession.
So far the speakers have been outstanding, and we have been lucky to hear from the following people:
- City Treasurer, Craig Franklin
- Entrepreneur and Co-Founder of Goods Unite Us, Amy Miller
- Architect, Kelly Hensler
- Hacker and Lawyer, Peyton Engel
- Entrepreneur (and Marketing), Jason Huett
- Entrepreneur (Enso Data), Sam Rusk
- Associated Bank Manager, Victoria Davis
- Journalist, Peter Culver
ECS 8th grade science students are exploring molecular structure. They are using Edgewood College's Chemistry labs to safely use chemicals and explore evidence for these ideas as they have proper chemistry hoods. Recently they used fire to explore the process of thermal expansion in solids. Students did a great job and we are so grateful to have Edgewood College's support in keeping our students safe in the laboratory.
