  • Honor Book Signing

    The Honor Council led chapel in Cade to educate students about the Honor Code and to invite students new to Cade to sign the Honor Book, a symbol of our community's commitment to living with honor. From Honor Council President Leah Gerard, '20: Being honorable or having integrity is not necessarily something that you are born with. It’s more of a conscious decision you make each day to do the right thing. ESA coaches us to be honorable people by demonstrating the importance of trust and honesty. So as you sign the Honor Book today, remember that the trust we so value here relies on reciprocal action. We can have an open campus where teachers aren’t constantly hovering... but that’s only if we also do our part and not violate that trust, if we prove that we value that trust.

    First graders started the school year with an Egg Drop Challenge. They learned and used the scientific method to complete the challenge, and practiced cooperation and listening skills as they worked in teams. With a goal of keeping theirs eggs safe when dropped from the handrail outside of the Enrichment Center, the groups used bubble wrap, plastic bag parachutes, lunch boxes and other items to protect their cargo.

    Cum Laude Society
    This fall, ESA received the honor of being granted a Cum Laude Society chapter. Founded in 1906 to recognize exceptional scholastic achievement in secondary schools, it is modeled after the Phi Beta Kappa Society that recognizes academic excellence at the college level. A student must have above a 4.00 GPA to be considered for induction and membership cannot exceed 20% of a graduating class. ESA’s inaugural Cum Laude members are:

    National Merit
    The National Merit® Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. Each September, about 50,000 seniors who earned the highest scores on the PSAT country are notified of their advancement in the program.  About 34,000 of these students receive Letters of Commendation in recognition of their outstanding academic promise.

     ESA had two National Merit Commended students in the Class of 2019:
     
    Anna LeGoullon            Jake Sledge

    The additional 16,000 high scorers are named National Merit Semi-finalists. Of this group some 15,000 are named finalists. ESA had a National Merit Finalist in the Class of 2019.

    Bishop & Mrs. Henton Award
    This award is named in honor of The Right Reverend Willis R. Henton, first Bishop of the Diocese of Western Louisiana, Chaplain Emeritus of Episcopal School of Acadiana, and his wife, Martha - friendly souls who made it their lives’ vocation to love their fellow man. The Bishop and Mrs. Henton Award is presented at graduation to a member of the senior class who exemplifies the fundamental virtues of care, love, and service to the ESA family and the greater community as did the Bishop and Mrs. Henton.

    Anna LeGoullon

    Tom Olverson Award
    The Tom Olverson Award is awarded at commencement to a member of the graduating class by a vote of the faculty. Named for Thomas P. Olverson, the first Assistant Headmaster of ESA, the award is given to a student who has a strong commitment to academics. This specifically does not mean a student who excels in achievement by being on the Honor Roll or Headmaster’s List consistently. Rather, the award recognizes a student who works hard at taking advantage of the opportunity available at ESA and makes an awardable effort. The award recognizes a senior who exemplifies the same passion for learning, love of the institution, and genuine desire to maximize the opportunities offered at ESA as Mr. Olverson did while serving here.

    Landon Chrysler

    Bishop’s Medal
    At commencement each year, Episcopal School of Acadiana recognizes the graduating senior with the highest cumulative GPA with the Bishop’s Medal.

    Jake Sledge

    Headmaster’s Award
    The Headmaster’s Award is given to a student who has made an outstanding contribution to the school; who takes responsibility for the community or some aspect of community life; and who voluntarily, with care and concern, gives consistently, effectively and positively to help build the community.  The closest synonym is probably leadership. The award also includes the criterion of strong academic leadership.
    This year marks the 5th time in the past 37 years that we will honor two outstanding students as Headmaster’s Award winners.

    Jake Sledge and Samantha Withers

    Trustees’ Award
    The ESA Trustee award is not given every year. When given, it is to honor a person or a group of people who have gone above and beyond in their service to ESA. This year, as we begin the celebration of ESA’s 40th birthday, the current Board of Trustees chose to honor the Founders of ESA, that group of visionaries who were instrumental in starting this school and charting the path forward to today.
     
    Headmaster Remarks
    We’ve heard a couple of intertwined themes here today from the founding of this school to stories honoring you amazing “almost graduates.” I want to take a brief couple of minutes to highlight some of those themes and wrap them up with some work that we, as a faculty, did earlier this year. And I’ll use Jake’s favorite book as my vehicle. The question that was asked 40 something years ago went something like this. What if we built a nationally recognized college preparatory school in Cade, Louisiana, a state that ranks near the bottom in practically every measure of educational excellence? What if we were committed to making that education available to students based on their talent and not their family’s income level? What if we put our money into people instead of beautiful buildings? What could we achieve? On some really important levels, those questions were absurd. They bordered on impossible. But, the world is changed not by people following a well-worn pathway. The world is changed by people following a compelling vision. And that vision of the very best education for our children right here in Acadiana is so powerful that it suddenly and seemingly effortlessly appeared (although, we who work here, know a good bit about the effort required). We were able to attract a phenomenally talented faculty who brought their passion for teaching to eager and curious students. When you do that, magic happens. As I’m fond of saying, when you put students into a culture of achievement and high ideals, the most natural thing is for them become high achieving, ethical giants. Seniors, you join over 1400 ESA graduates who are creating ripples in this world, some giant, some smaller, but all ripples that will affect the lives of others. It’s kind of a big responsibility, and we are really excited and proud to send you out there to join our alumni. As I mentioned earlier, we worked this year to refine our portrait of an ESA graduate. I offer you some of the words that we, your faculty, believe about you and all of our ESA grads.

    ESA graduates students who:
     
    Believe they can learn anything, and have the sense of wonder and resourcefulness to make it happen.
     
    ESA graduates students who:
     
    Believe they can change the world, and work hard to turn knowledge into action in their communities and beyond.
     
    ESA graduates students who:
     
    Believe in individuality, as well as in the power of communities built on respect, empathy and trust.
     
    ESA graduates students who:
     
    Believe in creativity and in taking risks, and have the resilience to learn from their mistakes.
     
    I hope you see yourself reflected in those statements. It is what we believe about you. It is what we hope for you. I will end today with a quote from Randall Munroe, from the book, What If? I think it sums up a lot of what we hope for and believe about you as well. He writes this after talking about a version of the Icarus story. He was answering a question about flying a small plane on other planets in our solar system. You may remember the story of Icarus, the son of the famous craftsman, Daedalus, in Greek mythology. They were imprisoned and escaped by flying out using wings that were glued together with wax. Icarus flew too high, against the warning of his father, the wax melted, and he plunged to his death. Randall Munroe writes: “I’ve never seen the Icarus story as a lesson about the limitations of humans. I see it as a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.” That’s great—that sounds like Tony Stark to me. So, “almost graduates,” your world has no limitations if you use the right glue. Find your compelling vision. Build your wings. And please fix this crazy world we live in! Congratulations.

  • Idea Lab Logo Challenge

    Earlier this quarter, art teacher Claire Caffery (right) and Idea Lab coordinator Ashleigh D'Aunoy (left) challenged fifth graders to design a logo for the Idea Lab in the Enrichment Center. The project started with a visit by Susie Gottardi (second from left), a professional graphic designer who is the manager of marketing and design at the Hilliard Museum. She spoke with the fifth graders about the processes involved in logo design. Ms. Claire introduced the students to concepts in graphic design and to the idea of working for a client. They met with their client, Ms. Ashleigh, and asked her questions about her design preferences and her needs for the logo. Finally, the students, working in groups, created several drafts of their designs, and met with their teacher and their client to discuss each iteration. A panel of judges that included Ms. Claire and Ms. Ashleigh, Ms. Gottardi, Dr. Baker, Ms. O, ESA communications director Angie Broussard, and professional graphic designer Kate Ferry (second from right), chose four of the designs, which Ms. Ferry will convert to digital images. One will be used as the logo for the sign on the wall outside of the Idea Lab. The others will be used for various purposes in and around the lab. Thanks to our expert consultants and to our creative designers!

  • The Bones Girls

    A group of fourth graders know as the Bones Girls presented the tale of Bob the bobcat in chapel this week. The girls discovered a set of bones near the river behind the Outback during recess in December. The find included an almost complete skelton, and they spent several weeks analyzing and researching animal bones to determine what type of skeleton they had found. After learning as much as they could on their own and with teacher Coty Eastin's help, they called in an expert, Dr. Baker. Using features of the skeleton, such as eye socket location and dental formula, he helped them to identify the animal as a bobcat.
