6th Grade Math Fun

Grades five and six played games in math- games that made them think, strategize, problem-solve, focus, employ a growth mind-set. Mostly they had fun after a very busy year. Thanks to Ms. Sanders for the idea!



Our first graders transformed their outdoor classroom into five unique habitats! This was a culminating event to their study on habitats and the animals that dwell within them. The scenery inside each habitat was created by our very own talented first graders! All animals highlighted were researched and chosen by the students. Each "tour guide" made a poster to help teach others about the exciting features of their animal.  


Volunteers Needed: Chapel Facelift!


 In search of 10 volunteers for July 10th from 8a-3p to give the outdoor chapel a facelift.   

Tasks to include laying mulch, clearing brush, restoring benches, etc. 

RSVP to Melissa Davis by June 30th or 443-907-2847


Every year our Herons participate in a fun filled afternoon full of activities ending in an epic dance party. Activities this year included corn hole, volleyball, and a dunk tank featuring teacher victims! 



A group of enthusiastic third graders read  the Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davies for their spring Lit. Circle experience with Mrs. Mezger.  The students worked hard during the 9-week session learning new vocabulary, writing in response to their assigned reading, and practicing effective reading comprehension strategies.  For their culminating project, students planned and executed their very own SAES lemonade stand with Mrs. Mezger’s help and generosity.  Courtesy cups of their refreshing lemonade was a welcomed treat at Lower School lunch!  



Students gathered on the back patio where yearbooks were distributed to each class. Once the students received their yearbook the whole school mingled and signed each others yearbooks- a school wide tradition. 



On the last day of school the faculty took on the 8th graders in a friendly game of soccer as the entire school watched! Congrats to the 8th graders on their victory against our faculty 4-2!
