Character Tree Traits in Action
Fifth Grader Charlie Ramquist recently demonstrated his courage as he shared his unique struggle with a rare disease called Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) with his entire fifth grade. He was able to increase awareness about the disease while also discussing ways to support research and find a cure. Charlie is truly leading self, leading with others, and changing his world by participating in an amazing CLIMB Benefitting CURED where he and his father will climb Mt.Kilimanjaro along with others affected by EoE. His story was featured on a recent WRAL story and his classmates all agreed that he is a model of all the Character Tree traits in action and they couldn’t pick just one. We are all very proud of Charlie!
Thanks to the support and guidance of Mrs. Taylor and Mrs. King, we had some of our fifth grade ravens–Christopher Williams, Carter Brown, Sage Crosby and Charlie Enloe– earn 4th place in Omega Psi Phi’s 12th Annual African-American Quiz Bowl this past Saturday. Competing with more than 10 other Lower School teams, with only a few weeks to study, snow days galore and while on winter break, these fabulous four managed to study and master 109+ Black History facts. They demonstrated a lot of dedication! It was a STUPENDOUS showing for Ravenscroft’s first time participating!
