This Saturday, March 11, 2023, the EWG HS Band will be partaking in a very rare experience: EWG is one of four schools from New England (2 from RI, 1 from ME, and 1 from NH) chosen to participate in a clinic with the United States Coast Guard Band. While nationally there are many US military music groups, there are only 5 groups considered to be "Presidential" ensembles, and the Coast Guard Band in New London is one of those esteemed groups. This is equivalent to working with an MLB, NBA, or NFL team! The workshop and Coast Guard Band concert are open to our community, and you can find a schedule here https://docs.google.com/document/d/15YQRG-3o9Z74apDOwSlNoewSYUMgzGQf96V8NmWzzmo/edit We have enough chaperones for our buses, but if you would like to join us for the ride, you are welcome too!

EWG students had the opportunity to tour France and live with French families in an international exchange, from February 22nd to March 3rd. The toured the Louvre, Versailles, and Centre Pompidou. They’ve walked more than five miles a day many days and taken every type of public transportation available. They’ve visited the medieval cities of Rennes and St. Malo. They've been to the top of the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe, just to name a few! They visited the landing sites at Normandy and toured the American cemetery. A student put a flag on the grave of a fallen RI soldier whose family had never gotten to visit the cemetery. They learned to live with another family in a foreign country and have gotten to learn firsthand about life in a place that is very different from home.

Five young women from the EWG - FFA chapter attended the Women in Agriculture Conference at the Crown Plaza on March 7. Olivia Hathaway, Hailey McCoombs, Ms. Gwynne Millar, Advisor, Madison Rathbun, Clare Titus, and Rebecca Kilday learned about opportunities in agriculture for women. This educational event is designed to share options available to women currently in farming and women considering farming as a career. Students also got to network with agricultural organizations and professionals and hear from people who have successfully started agricultural operations in RI. The goal of the conference is to ensure that the next generation of women is educated, encouraged, and empowered to take on the challenges of meeting the world's growing food, fuel, and fiber needs.

EWG Garden Club students from 8th grade to 12th have been working really hard this year. We measured and designed the area near the greenhouse and students began creating pathways, raised bed gardens with arbors, and a water feature. In addition, they built birdhouses to increase the biodiversity in the surrounding area. We have been currently building cold-frame tops to some of the raised bed gardens so that we can grow out winter crops like spinach, carrots, beets and more. The students are still working on their mini coldframe tops and they are coming along nicely. We can't wait to see what environmental sustainable project they will design and build next!

Floriculture class is learning how to make floral crowns in our floriculture wedding unit. Floral crowns were common in ancient Greece during special events and are still worn today. They have been used as a symbol for honoring achievements and respect. During the Victorian Era and in Ukraine they have been used in wedding ceremonies. Throughout history and around the world they have been a symbol of love and celebration. It is fun to watch the students learn how to create and personalize their live floral crowns. They took a few times to make, but they have been learning to master the techniques and they are coming out nice!
