The New Lower School Service Ambassadors
Alexandria de Rubira | Grade 5 Teacher

The eight new Lower School Student Ambassadors have been selected by their peers and are so excited to be representing their school at events and through their project work. There are already some projects and events in the works, and the ambassadors will be sharing these with their families, the LS community, and their grade levels. They may include, but are not limited to, assemblies, Character and Learner Traits, the BULLS expectations, community building projects, Jean's Day and other philanthropic events, and even choosing a few of the domains of the Wellness Wheel to support.

They will also be learning other life skills, such as being on time for meetings, working lunches, coming prepared to meetings, volunteering for jobs and following through, and public speaking.

Under the supervision of Ms. Alex and Ms. López, these class and school representatives will meet at various times throughout the year during their lunch and recess time to fulfill their roles.

Congratulations to our Student Ambassadors who will be learning and using the lifelong skills of collaboration, planning, and participating in activities that are of service to their EAB community!

Congratulations to our new Service Ambassadors:

  • Ariana and Josiah - 4A
  • Kaya and Jax - 4B
  • Hiroji and Pedro - 5A
  • Alice and Arthur - 5B

 

Lower School Musicals
Ana LĂ©lia, on behalf of the Arts Department

Our Lower School musicians worked tremendously hard on practicing and professionally recording their vocals for two special projects: Memories and What a Wonderful World. These songs were played at and performed at the K5 and Grade 5 Continuation Ceremonies, as a gift from our wonderful musicians to K5 and Gr5 students Now, our musicians extend this gift to you, families, on a celebratory note, to show their love and gratitude the arts, appreciation for the world we live in, and in appreciation for our special community.

 

 

We wish you a wonderful break and look forward to seeing you next year!

 

Musical Greetings,

Ana Lélia, on behalf of the Arts Department | Cynthia Lee, on Behalf of Events Department
