Our Episcopal Identity

School Worship

Creative, inclusive, and drawing fully upon the liturgical resources of The Episcopal Church, worship is a regular part of school life for all faculty and students.

Community Life

Reflection, prayer, and matters of the spirit are honored and cultivated and the physical, mental, and emotional health of all are supported and nurtured.

Religious Study

Meaningful, academically substantive, and age-appropriate; and in teaching the Christian tradition, fosters dialogue with other faith traditions.

Social Justice

Equity, justice, and a just society throughout the life of the school; the embracing and honoring of diversity; and the inclusion of community service and service learning into the life of the school.

Advanced Percussion Performs in Chapel!

Advanced Percussion Performs in Chapel!

Mr. Erick Saoud and his Advanced Percussion classes performed their fall music for the community. They performed two songs: "The Percussionistas" by Mark Peterson and "Reverie" by Claude Debussy.

The first group, performing "The Percussionistas," began chapel with a high and fast beat. The second group took the stage to perform the soothing sounds of "Reverie". This song was originally written for piano but was arranged for mallet percussion ensembles by Dwayne Rice.

The last song performed was "Dance of the Drums" by Gene Koshinksi. It was played by Mr. Erick Saoud and Dr. Ryan Lewis, Assistant Professor of Percussion at Ouachita Baptist University. The duo first performed this song together at the Southern Illinois University Percussion Camp last summer where they are both on the faculty. Mr. Saoud began the song by blowing on a conch shell and the energizing drumming ensued!
