Our "Cave Cow"
Holy Cow! Or at least sacred cow... and bull, and horse and stag...
When given an opportunity to paint a fiberglass "mini moo" as a fundraiser for the NC Children's Hospital, EWS High School students Shay Stifelman, Cerri O'Connor, Tudor Comaniciu, Shanti Rogers, David D'Angelo, Jonah Davidson and Jon Deutsch looked to images of the first bovines in art for inspiration. The animal forms left on the rock walls in the depths of Lascaux Cave in France 17,000 years ago are some of the best known early artistic works.
Students studied images from the cave and carefully worked to reproduce not only the images themselves but the cave's limestone wall on the surface of their "mini moo." The “Cave Cow” is currently a part of the NC Children’s Hospital “Cow Parade” fundraiser and Facebook competition. Winners of this contest for best cow will be part of a show and auction to benefit the hospital on February 2nd at Memorial Auditorium in Raleigh.

Donations for Syria
6th Grader's Service Project
As you might know, people in Syria have been suffering of displacement due to war. Many do not have enough clothing or shelter items. There are 100
families in camps near my grandmother's home town Zahle, Bekaa Valley, Lebanon. We decided that if some of you have warm clothes no longer needed,
(especially for kids), and the items in lost & found boxes on campus stay
unclaimed by the last day of each month, we can send the donated items to the Red Cross office in Zahle which will deliver them to the refugees.
If you would like to directly donate warm clothing items please bring them
to the lower school office. First deadline date is January 31st. Please
make sure you put your name on the bag and an estimation of number of
items and dollar value if you would like to use the donation for tax
