OUR TRANSFORMATIONAL YEAR IN PICTURES

BUILDING COMMUNITY BONDS EDS GIVES BACK

2018-2019

ANNUAL REPORT Growing into a new decade


a note from the head of school, ROBERT STEPHENS Dear EDS Family, Thank you for your ongoing, impactful, and very much appreciated support of our Annual Fund. The difference that you are making is inspiring, innovative, and evident. Behind so many wonderful things happening at EDS is the support of our extensive school community. Your gifts reach into every area of school life and set the philanthropic example that our students see and will one day emulate. Our students build lifelong connections from day one. Connections with teachers and connections with each other. The EDS educational experience bolsters those connections and is greatly enriched by your giving. From outdoor spaces for learning and playing to academic resources, your support of our Annual Fund elevates our programs and compels EDS to be the school of distinction that we know and love. As our dedicated board of trustees enters into a time of strategic planning and laying out the EDS vision for the future, we are all grateful for your generosity. The tradition of excellence that is so well established has made our school recognizable throughout the region. As I travel the state visiting and evaluating schools, I am always overjoyed to return to a place where parents are so supportive, teachers are so dedicated and students are so accomplished. And there are a lot of smiles in there too! Behind every donor is a deeply rooted commitment to our future. Thank you for helping us grow!

HOW WE GIVE BACK

FILL THE MAYFLOWER FOR MANNA

Our little turkeys and pilgrims loaded up the Coastal Moving and Storage truck with 5,360 pounds of food in 2018 - nearly doubling our donation total from 2017. We are honored to kick off this city-wide event each year!

SCREENAGERS

It was an honor to bring this film to Pensacola and share it with the entire community free of charge. We hope by viewing Screenagers, both parents and children were willing and able to start a dialogue about digital citizenship and social media.

UWF COMMUNITY SERVICE SCHOLARSHIP

Volunteer development office assistant and soccer coach, Hannah Borrero was awarded $1,800 from the Joseph E Majors Scholarship Fund by the University of West Florida for her significant amount of service hours to EDS. Supporting and training tomorrow’s workforce is so important to us - and for incredibly hard workers like Hannah, it paid off in a big way!

HURRICANE MICHAEL RECOVERY EFFORTS

We believe in supporting our neighbors in need. Holy Nativity, a Pre-K to 8th grade Episcopal School in Panama City, FL was devastated by Hurricane Michael. When they began to rebuild, their biggest request was books, and the EDS family delivered! Because of you, multiple class sets of books and tons of school supplies made it a lot easier to get things back on track for HNES.

UPWARD INTUITION

It’s important for kids to find a way that they can make a difference using their own gifts and talents. In the fall of 2018, students created and sold clay Christmas ornaments to raise money for Upward Intuition, a local nonprofit working to build a multipurpose community skateboarding plaza just a few blocks away from EDS. These works of art raised $1,000 and made the perfect holiday gift - giving to others WHILE giving to others?! We bet even Santa would give his stamp of approval!

WESLEY HAVEN VILLA

Just a few blocks away from the South Campus, you will find a very active group of seniors. We love partnering with them on various activities like Grandparents’ Day, but our favorite visit is definitely when our PreK3 students go caroling. This priceless interaction lifts the residents’ spirits and instills pride in the hearts of our young singers!

ENROLLMENT UPDATE

ENROLLMENT UPDATE

Episcopal Day School had a banner enrollment season. Re-enrollment was over 93% and we welcomed over 70 new students. Several of our classes are filled to capacity including PreK2, PreK4, 3rd Grade, 6th Grade, and 7th Grade. We are currently home to over 380 of the best students in Pensacola! The Admissions office continues to tour daily and we are currently accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year. Once again, we expect several classes to reach capacity, including all grades in the Middle School. The word is out~ EDS is the BEST!

The PSO Continues to Grow From the Backyard Movie Night in Fall, to the 8th Grade Graduation reception in May, it was a fun filled year from start to finish! The PSO continued to host well loved events like the Thankful Ice Cream Feast, Christmas Parade Pre-Party, and the Father-Daughter Dance while adding fun new events like the Mother-Son Get Together and a Tennis Social! The PSO works hard to provide opportunities for our EDS family to give back to the community while having a good time. None of these events would be possible without the dedicated efforts of the PSO Board members and all of the EDS parents and faculty who support the PSO every year! I thank you all for giving your time and talent to EDS! This year was another stellar year for The Grill on the Hill! Tie-dye, beads, feathers and peace signs, set the stage for the PSO’s “Peace Love & Pork” themed amateur grilling competition. Parents, faculty and alumni enjoyed great food, music, and drinks as they helped raise money to support the initiatives of the PSO and the EDS Annual Fund. With your generous support of Grill on the Hill, the PSO is able to be the largest donor to the Annual Fund each year. I know all of you feel the same when I say that our children are so very lucky to attend Episcopal Day School. It is truly a special place for them to learn and grow. It has been my pleasure to be a part of this community as the President of the PSO for the past two years. I would like to thank all the PSO members and fellow officers for their constant efforts to fulfill the mission of the PSO. I have been continuously humbled and amazed by their dedication to EDS and our children! I look forward to the continued success of the EDS PSO!

These Families Keep Us Rooted KUGELMAN FAMILY FOUNDATION With generous funding from the Kugelman Family Foundation in December of 2018, we began to plan for a raised seating area located between the 2 playgrounds of the Hilton-Green Campus. This blank canvas had clear potential, but at the time offered nothing to the students or faculty. After a significant design, planning, & approval process, we are thrilled to see an exciting new space grow right in front of our eyes! Our new seating area can hold approximately 36 children at a time and has already been labeled as the perfect

quiet place to rest or read a book, but we can also see it becoming a host for presentations, lunch and snack breaks, and even a class photo or two. We can’t wait to see the many ways our teachers are able to utilize this beautiful new space! As the recipients of multiple Kugelman Foundation grants in the past, our campuses have been shaped by their generosity. Their gifts have given us the ability to live out our mission and serve the students and families of EDS in so many incredible ways!

BEAR FAMILY FOUNDATION

Thank you for providing our smallest scientists with the tools they need to become innovative individuals!

Year after year, we have had the honor of receiving grant funding from the Bear Family Foundation to facilitate new and educational opportunities for our students. With support from the Bear Family during the 2018-19 school year, we were able to purchase a variety of PreK level tools that will engage students in science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics principles in a way that is meaningful and fun for them.

As trends in education change, we strive to provide our students with exciting advances in modern technology. With a wide array of new games and manipulatives that encourage creative problem solving available for students as young as PreK, we are hopeful that providing these tools now will provide our community with ‘outside-thebox’ thinkers that will be successful in our rapidly growing and changing job force for the future.

INTERNATIONAL PAPER FOUNDATION In 2018, we were honored to accept our first grant from the International Paper Foundation. The project entitled Exhibit A(rt) - Taking Pride in Student Art enabled the installation of eight art displays across both campuses. These displays give the staff of EDS the ability to celebrate their students by proudly displaying each artist’s name alongside their masterpiece. We strive to cultivate an environment where students can discover and cultivate

their unique gifts and talents. Showcasing student art builds self-esteem and confidence within budding young creative minds! Since its inception in 1952, the IP Foundation has provided grants to local nonprofits in support of programs focused on the signature causes of education, hunger, health and wellness, and disaster relief. International Paper continues to be a force for good in the communities they serve!


THE WALSH FAMILY Chance and Shannon Walsh have been incredibly generous since the first day they came to EDS. Their passion for making our school the very best it can be is a true testament to their love for not just their own children, Stella and Jasper, but for each and every student that steps foot on our campuses. Nearly two years ago, conversation began about renovating an outdoor space on the Hilton-Green Campus that was in desperate need of some TLC. Chance and Shannon had a vision of what that space could become. With their patience, dedication, and generosity, this vision has finally come to life. This multi-purpose space can be used for just about anything by any EDS student. We’ve already seen birthday celebrations, pumpkin carvings, and even a luau take place and we can only imagine how many other joyous moments and milestones this space will help create. With a little imagination and a lot of commitment to our students as the driving force, we were able to turn a blank canvas into a masterpiece for the EDS family to enjoy for years to come.

GRACE E. SNYDER SCHOLARSHIP FOR SINGLE PARENTS Given with love and gratitude by Mr. Todd Snyder and Ms. Grace Snyder, this newly established annual scholarship will be awarded to a full-time, working, single parent family that demonstrates the need for financial assistance. We are thrilled by the opportunity to utilize the Snyder family’s generosity to add another branch to the EDS family tree that we may not otherwise have had the pleasure of knowing.

As the parent of an EDS alumni, Todd is no stranger to our school and the incredible community that comes with it. Thank you, Todd and Grace, for giving the greatest possible gift - the gift of an education! If you or someone you know may be a candidate for the Grace E. Snyder Scholarship, please contact Lisee Sherrill, Director of Admissions, lsherrill@edscc.org.

IN MEMORY OF BRENDA O’DANIEL On August 14, 2018, we lost a very special member of the EDS family. Brenda O’Daniel, a former PreK classroom assistant was beloved by every student, teacher, and parent that she came across during her time at EDS. Her compassionate and charitable heart is fondly remembered and will be carried on within the many children that she nurtured throughout her career. In partnership with her dear friends, Mrs. Mosley and Mrs. Cagle, and with funding from significant donations in Brenda’s honor, we were able to install new monkey bars on the Hilton-Green playground and a beautiful bench, referred to as, ‘Brenda’s Bench’ beside it. It is our hope that children will gain strength, find joy, and help each other along the way as they utilize this playground classic.

CONGRATULATIONS CLASS OF 2019

a few words from the class of 2019 Valedictorian, KELSEY MILLER

My mom always tells me the beginning proves the most challenging. Although she, at the time, referred to introductory sentences for a paper, these words prove true in unexpected ways. In 6th grade, I transferred from Cordova Park Elementary to EDS, encountering challenges. However, I would be doing a disservice to tell you solely about me, for a number of people deserve to be recognized for believing in me. Now, please bear with me, for the purpose of this is to genuinely thank them, and consequently, you might not understand how I convey my gratitude. Dear Nicole Dorvault, I’ll be more chill, as long as you never throw away your shot. Musical references aside, please NEVER stop ceasing to make others laugh and smile. Hannah, you are one of the craziest people I’ve ever met, and I am only saying this for I know you this will not phase you. Thank you for your selflessness, and the daily meme references. I’ll miss you and Nicole dearly at 1B Shelby, I can’t thank you enough for listening to my rants at Blue Jay’s, and finding humor with me in senseless topics. I look forward to 1B next year where we can endure the amplified stress together Caroline C., we used to pick flowers together on the soccer field mid-game, and, quite frankly, not much has changed. Thank you for simply understanding me this year. Mia, I’ll never forget how you calmed me the night of the dance. Thank you for that compassion, and please share this with others at West Florida. Tess, I really enjoyed getting to know you these past three years. You’re a great friend, smart, and empathetic. I simply hope to maintain this friendship in high school. Zach, oh gosh. Here we are one year later, from the days of Zelsey to the days of roasting you in math class and at the campfire. All jokes aside, you’ re compassionate and smart. Thanks for being my friend. Savannah, a little birdie asked for a shout-out because I shadowed you in fifth grade. I will miss you and your kindness in high school.

Kayla, thank you for appreciating the vine references. I’ll miss you, and hope you’ll have the power of God and anime on your side as a Crusader. Elizabeth, I’m grateful that since my first day of EDS, you’ve displayed unparalleled kindness and warmth towards me. Ronnie, we’re different in almost every way possible. However, we possess drive. This year, our ambition and resilience elevated us to these positions. Thank you for encouraging me this year. Lexi, I remember this year when I said something out of frustration, and you hugged me afterwards, assuring me you felt the same way. I will always remember this. Thank you. To my teachers: thank you, Mrs. Nowak, for being like a second mom to me; thank you Ms. Mclendon for teaching me the value of hard work; gracias Sra. Beaulieu for h el ping me appreciate foreign language; thank you Mrs. Majors for developing my critical analysis skills; and thank you Ms. Russell for guiding us through the stress of History Fair. To my family: thank you lrm, I love you a bushel and a peck; Uncle Ronnie, thank you for being fabulous and always there for me; Grand Doc, thank you for believing in me and for your hallelujahs in church; Grandpa, thank you for your generosity and humor; Mom, thank you for the late-night study snacks and supporting me with this goal; Dad, thank you also for helping me realize the value of hard work; and, although she was unable to join us tonight, thank you to my dog Scooby for the snuggles and encouragement. So, these individuals have shaped me throughout my life. These individuals helped me achieve my wild dream I conceptualized a while back. A reserved student who transitioned three years ago into an entirely new environment is now distinguished as the valedictorian. Last year, Mrs. Norris explained to me she strived to be the best in one thing. This year, I determined this as my one thing. To the class of 2019, you can always achieve the number one spot in something if you simply try.
