Our Upper School Garden Club and Middle School academic course, D.I.G. (D-E in the Garden), hosted our annual D-E Honey Harvest! With our apiarist, Eric, students learned about how bees make honey, what other substances bees make, and more! Did you know that honey harvested during different seasons will produce different shades of color? Students enjoyed removing beeswax caps and watching the centrifuge extract the honey from the honeycomb frames. Here's to a sweet lesson about nature's gifts! Visit d-e.org/clubs for more about student activities and service @ D-E!
Spirit Week is an annual D-E tradition: students participate in themed clothing days, festive activities, and events and come together for a great cause. This year, that cause was Runway to Recovery, an organization committed to fighting breast cancer. On "Pink Out" Day, all students wore pink in honor of breast cancer awareness and by the end of the week, more than $7000 was raised! We also celebrated two "Bulldog Battles" during Spirit Week 2023, a new D-E tradition where our even- and odd-numbered class years go head-to-head in fun competitions like "Dress-a-Bulldog" Dribbling Relay. Cheers to both our Gold and Blue Teams, to our Class of 2024 Seniors for winning Spirit Week 2023, and to everyone for coming together for a great cause!
