  • Class of 2022 graduate Ellie MacMullan prepares to graduate from Saint Edward's School

    Celebrating the Class of 2023

    MJ
    Tomorrow's Commencement will be live streamed on the Saint Edward's School Facebook page for out of town family and friends who wish to watch the ceremony. A number of parents have asked about proper attire for Baccalaureate and Commencement. Both are similar, so think in terms of "church" clothes. Most men wear a jacket but not a suit, and ladies typically wear "day" dresses or trousers. Also, the Waxlax is often chilly so a light sweater is recommended. We look forward to celebrating with your senior over the next two days!

    Caffeine and Canines

    The Active Minds Club, sponsored by Rio Coco Beans and Canine Companions, brought big smiles and delicious drinks to campus in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month. The final stretch of school can be stressful, but Caffeine and Canines allowed faculty and students alike to take a break from their busy schedules and join together outside the Waxlax to bond over coffee and cute pups.

  • Indian River Lagoon Restoration

    Kelly Hudson
    After learning about ecosystem restoration in the Amazon rainforest, fifth-grade students got to see a real-life restoration in action at our Indian River Lagoon. Mrs. Nelson’s marine biology students presented their restoration project to the fifth-grade class. The following week, students had the opportunity to see the restoration project in action. The marine biology students are raising oysters to restore the lagoon. Students learned that one oyster can filter 50 gallons of water a day. Oysters feed by removing nutrients from the water. Students were able to make connections between the two different ecosystems. We are so proud of our upper school marine biology students.

  • Marble Run, Anyone?

    Kelly Hudson
    First-grade students learned about the force of gravity by designing a marble run. Working with partners, they used cardboard, tools, tape, and a lot of ingenuity to design their marble runs. Students constructed a “slant” to demonstrate the law of gravity in action, without any push or pull mechanisms to get the marble moving. Keen engineering and collaboration skills were highlights of this exciting Lower School science challenge! Click on this link to see a marble run in action.

  • Powder Puff 2023

    Juniors Take Powderpuff Crown

    MJ
    In an epic clash of competition on the gridiron, the juniors faced off with the seniors in the annual Powderpuff game. The juniors took the lead quickly with Carrington Brown proving that her spirit animal must be a gazelle because if the ball was in her hands, no one had a feeble hope to catch her. Prior to the start of the game, the newly elected Student Government slate of Luke Damiani, Daniela Sonzini and Stone Colgan fulfilled their first campaign promise and took three very large pies to the face. The competition to see who could deliver gooey mess to face was almost as fierce as the football game itself! Special thanks to Dr. Hirstein and Mr. MacMullan for manning the grill, Pirate dad Jon Sternberg for the epic color commentary, Mrs. Mohr (who jumped in to save the senior's pride at the last minute) and Chris Hawley for setting up the field and refereeing the game. Enjoy this sneak peek of photos. Next week we will have a full, downloadable album of photos to share.

    Chef Diego and his hardworking crew pulled out all the stops today for a Cinco de Mayo celebration like no other. The decorations added a special touch, and the music was a blast! While most people assume that May 5 is Mexico's Independence Day celebration, it's a bit more nuanced. It actually acknowledges Mexico's victory over the Second French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862, led by General Ignacio Zaragoza. The victory over the French army was a morale boost for the Mexicans. *Click the headline to see more photos.

    Academic WorldQuest Team Competes in Washington, DC

    Team members Jack Curley, Theodore Reicher, Eric Lin, Jimmy Collins, Quinn Roberts, Olivia Stovall and Rushil Sura participated in the national Academic World Quest Competition in Washington DC. This is the youngest team Mr. Mitchell has ever brought to the national competition. The team performed marvelously given their ages and lack of experience in rigorous, academic competition. They ultimately finished 15 out of 38 schools, all of which had teams comprised of juniors and seniors. Mr. Mitchell sees great promise for this team going forward. The preparation for this competition is demanding; students must sacrifice lunch and ninth period in order to study for the competition that has ten categories with voluminous content. The team got to enjoy a celebratory dinner thanks to the generosity of the Papadopolous family. Mr. Mitchell said he looks to a national championship going forward.

    The excitement and adventures extended beyond the four walls of the Institute of Peace, and included Jack's encounter with a rather well-known politician....

Mr. Mitchell, who was in Washington, DC, with the Academic World Quest competitors, joined by FaceTime from a cab leaving the airport. Each student discussed why they have an appreciation for history and social studies and how they will pursue their passions in college. Olivia Pickering summed it up, saying, "I have always wanted to know the answers to my questions, even when I was little. I am committed and passionate about discovering these answers from yesterday and today."

  • Dads and Grads face off on Mersky Field

    STEDS Dads & Grads Came to PLAY!

    GM
    On April 1, Saint Edward's School alumni and fathers came together to participate in the very first annual mens lacrosse "Dads and Grads" game on the Michael J. Mersky Field. The event featured teams named after each of the respective goalies: Team Blake (Peter Blake '93) and Team Pratt (Rip Pratt, father of Riker '22 and Catalina '20). The teams squared off on a shortened field in a 6 v. 6 matchup with fewer face-offs, making for a fast-paced match enjoyed by all in the stands. Team Pratt emerged as the victor, and the game was highlighted by competitive play and spirited fun from the dads and the graduates, who spanned several decades. Follow these links for albums of downloadable photos: Album 1, Album 2, Album 3, Album 4 and Album 5.

    Eighth-Grade MUN Makes Their Mark on the West Coast

    Fifteen members of the eighth grade attended the FMSMUN Conference this past weekend at Shorecrest Preparatory School in St. Petersburg. The delegates grappled with the important global topics of gender equality and improving health services for the disabled, and represented countries as diverse as Norway to Egypt to Cambodia. Students learned about the United Nations' procedures for writing position papers, as well as collaborating with new acquaintances for resolutions. All students gained an international perspective about many issues and were most successful as a delegation. We were also the largest delegation at the conference of 50 plus students. Genevieve Medalie served as a representative from Costa Rica on behalf of the UN Women committee and was recognized as the most improved delegate from her work throughout the conference - a tremendous honor for her extreme dedication!

    Ethan poses with his project partner and father

    How Did You Spend YOUR Spring Break?

    MJ
    Rather than schussing down the slopes or hitting the beach, sophomore Ethan Ball traveled to Amelia Island to present important research in men's health to the Southeastern Section of the American Urological Association (SESAUA) Annual Meeting. He spent months working with a medical intern analyzing over 16 years' worth of data in order to be accepted to the conference to present his poster. Ethan's father is a local urologist, and he has always been interested in his work. Ethan admits that presenting his findings to a room full of experts was "nerve-racking; everyone in the room had decades of experience in the field of Urology. I had to know my facts and be able to answer any question that came my way." Ethan aspires to "be a physical therapist for a professional sports team: any sports and any sports team, MLB, NBA, NFL, and the NHL." We have no doubt this experience will look great on his college applications in 2026. Well done, Ethan!

  • Why Be a Host Family?

    Why Be a Host Family?

    At the end of the fall semester, the Hatmaker host family created a heartfelt "yearbook" for international student Caspar Uhlenbruck. It was amazing to witness how much of an impact Caspar had on their family, and we know that all 7 of the students they have hosted are forever grateful for the bonds that were created. You may view the full scrapbook here

    Host families are an integral part of each international student’s experience, such as playing a role in building lifelong relationships. Interested in becoming a host family for SES? Please contact Maureen MacMullan and visit the International Students: Homestay page for more information.

    Dia Internacional de la Mujer

    Señora Gapkaloff
    Students have been learning about "La Familia" and "La Moda". They all have been working hard on their projects before leaving for the break. Seventh grade had a "Desfile de Ropa" with special guests (the Pre-K class with Mrs. Orzechowski) and they presented their brand and their clothing to the class. We always have a great time with these little amigos. Sixth grade started their presentations and we also got a chance to practice our Español with a school in Costa Rica (it was Señora's cousin's class at New Horizon Christian School). ¡Gracias Prima!

  • Help save the lagoon, one plant at a time.

    March 18 Isn't Just for Leprechauns

    MJ
    Got a green thumb? March 18 isn't just for the luck 'o the Irish -- it's also a day to share your love of the Indian River Lagoon. Even if houseplants don't stand a chance in your home, you have an opportunity to play an important role in improving our precious waterways. Through a partnership with ORCA, local lagoon lovers will gather at 9 a.m. at DeSoto park to plant species along the water's edge that will protect the shoreline and all of the baby critters who rely on places to hide and grow. These important plants also help keep the waters of the lagoon clean. Plan to bring a pair of gloves and your own water. Interested in learning more? Contact Mrs. Nelson in the Marine Bio department.

    Spanish 2 Classes Celebrate Trailblazing Afro-Latinos

    In honor of Black History Month, Spanish 2 classes celebrated trailblazing Afro-Latinos.

  • World Seagrass Day

    World Seagrass Day

    Marine science students kayaked and observed seagrass communities on World Seagrass Day. It was windy so the Indian River Lagoon was turbid and the shallows were the only clear water around! Students were able to identify shoal grass Halodule wrightii which is a pioneer species of disturbed areas and inhabits areas that are too shallow for other seagrass species. Students observed gastropods, dolphins and crustaceans and then removed debris from the seagrass beds to improve the health of the IRL.

    Fourth Grade Science Fair

    Kelly Hudson
    Fourth-grade students took on the role of scientists as they investigated the aerodynamics of paper airplanes. Students followed scientific methods. After building and throwing paper airplanes, students made observations and brainstormed possible variables to test. Once groups identified a testable question, they worked in collaborative groups to research motion, forces, energy, and aerodynamics. To plan their experiment, students identified variables, visualized their project, listed materials, wrote step-by-step procedures, and created a data table. To conduct their experiment, students controlled their variables, measured with metric units, and recorded data. Students learned how to analyze their data by averaging their results, making a bar graph, and drawing a conclusion. Students learned the importance of keeping a detailed logbook, measuring with precision and accuracy, and documenting their experiments. You can click on this link to see the science fair process in action.

Making observations, asking questions, researching, planning and conducting experiments, and recording data are among the invaluable skill sets students engaged in as part of this process. Students also honed their presentation skills as they practiced sharing their projects with peers and various classes at the Lower School. All these efforts culminated in a Science Fair Showcase, where proud faces abounded as students presented their projects to family and friends!  Please click on the link to see a video from this special day!

    Students Witness Science in Action at Harbor Branch

    BN
    Biology teacher Brandy Nelson brought three juniors and two seniors to The Indian River Lagoon Symposium this week at the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute of FAU.
     
    The event is a multi-institutional and multi-agency effort to provide a forum for discussing the most current research findings and restoration projects associated with the Indian River Lagoon. It is designed to narrow the gap between research and the application of that research that is required to improve the health of the IRL.

    Scientists from all over Florida participate and the focus of this year’s symposium was IRL seagrasses. Students were able to utilize their knowledge of seagrasses and water quality from classes to step deeper into real world applications by listening to research talks and observing the associated research posters. They also had an opportunity to view AUVs, ROVs, submersibles and engineering areas during their lunch break.

    The drive will run Monday, February 6, through Friday, February 17. Boxes are located in the lower school courtyard, the middle school lobby and the Peter B. Benedict Library. Simply bring a pair of slightly used shoes to school and drop them in one of the boxes.

    Thank you for supporting this service project. If you would like to know more about this wonderful organization, go to https://soles4souls.org. It's amazing how a pair of shoes can change a life!
