Upper Elementary Students Improve Habitat in Local Park
Alice

Recently our Upper Elementary students ventured to nearby Idylwood Beach Park and spent time improving the habitat. The student pulled, uprooted, and cleared noxious species that cause harm to the habitat. One species they helped clear was English Ivy. Although the plant is not native to the Pacific Northwest, it thrives in our climate and crowds out other native plants and tree seedlings. In addition, the ivy's shallow roots create a heavy mat that may contribute to soil sliding down hills during rain storms. Kudos to the fourth- and fifth-grade students for working so hard and for being stewards of our earth!

For more information on English Ivy's impact on habitats as well as how to control it, please visit King County's English Ivy page.





























2017 JCL: A Passionate Classical Community
Anne Gaskins, Latin Teacher

Thirty-three of Eton's 5th-8th grade students, and twenty-one parents, spent the first weekend of Spring Break at the Washington-British Columbia Junior Classical League Convention taking place at Warm Beach in Stanwood, WA. The students from Eton swept more than fifteen categories of awards, demonstrating their prowess in academic testing, creative arts, graphic arts, track, field, Roman wrestling, gladiatorial combat, and JCL spirit. During JCL, students and parents saw war re-enacted in authentic Roman armor, a "modern bard" singing his 24-song version of The Odyssey, and three skits that re-interpreted known and beloved myths. After JCL, everyone started Spring Break tired, but happy, after reaffirming Eton's part in such a passionate classical community.
