Friday March 21 is Gatsby Day for Juniors and Seniors
Friday, March 21 is Gatsby Day at Episcopal! Over the course of the morning, before going on to Spring Fest, Juniors and Seniors will immerse themselves in the world at the core of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic 1925 novel. Students will participate in a series of cross-curricular workshops highlighting various aspects of history, arts, sports, and fashions of the Twenties. These will be followed by a one-man show centered around the life of Harlem Renaissance poet Langston Hughes. The morning will culminate in a catered luncheon on the Regan Plaza, with a backdrop of live jazz and a vintage car from the Gatsby era. Students to dress in appropriate Twenties-style attire. More information will be emailed to parents and students in the coming weeks.
Lost & Found and Uniform Recycle Program Updates
All Lost & Found items will be on display in the Buck Center from this Thursday March 6 though Tuesday March 11. At a glance, I have found a Jos Banks sports coat, two beautiful Polo hoodie jackets, a number of other non Episcopal jackets, dress shoes, sneakers, uniforms (mainly boys) and lots of odds and ends. Many of these items are expensive and have been there for awhile. Parents are always welcome to stop by. You may not even realize your child has lost anything. Here is a little information about our Lost & Found program. Lost & Found items are placed on display every other month by parent volunteers. The items are checked for names. Unfortunately, initials do not count as names. You would be surprised how many kids have the same initials as yours. If a name is found, it is placed on the table with your child's name in plain site. If at the end of the week, your child still hasn't picked up their item, we send it to their advisor to give to them. All unclaimed uniform items without names are donated to our Uniform Recycle Program. We donate hundreds of dollars of unlabeled uniforms to the Uniform Recycle program quarterly. All items with ids found in them are sent directly to their advisor. All lost books with names are returned to the student, books without names are sent to the book store. If an item has been in Lost and Found for more than three months and has been put on display twice, it will be either donated or thrown away. If your child has lost something, please ask them to keep checking, from my own experience, if may take a few days to make it into the Lost and Found.The Uniform Recycle Program runs twice a year, once each Fall and Spring. The spring program will run May 6-9. If you have any gently used uniform items that no longer fit your child, please donate them to our school. You can drop them off at the front office anytime and receive a tax form. The uniforms in the Uniform Recycle Program are free to all Episcopal families. You do not need to donate an item to take an item. If your child is a senior, you can donate their uniforms when school is over and we will save them for next year's program. If you have any questions, please check out the following link: http://www.esj.org/parents/resources/uniform-information or email Kim Sievert at [email protected]. These programs are offered through the Episcopal Parent's Association.
