‘School work day’ is not necessarily the type of event that gathers many folks together on a hot July Saturday, unless the school is St. Stephen’s Episcopal School in Wimberley. Students, faculty, parents and board members joined efforts on July 21 to spruce up the campus for upcoming Open Houses. “We have such a committed community,” said Head of School Marsha Acock. “These folks care so much and are so excited about this school year that they put their personal comfort aside and came to pitch in.”
St. Stephen’s will be hosting informal Open Houses with special activities for the kids, the first three Wednesdays in August, the 1st, the 8th and the 15th, from 10 a.m. to noon. Parents and students will be able to tour the campus, ask questions, hear thrilling details about the school’s programs, like the new 1-1 iPad program, and get a true feeling of what life is like on this unique campus. “I want other kids to come see how neat our school is,” said entering 3rd grader Hudson Kehl. “We get to do stuff like Archery and chapel.”
St. Stephen’s mission is to develop each student to his or her full potential academically, spiritually, morally and physically. Through educational experiences in a Christian community, each student will grow in grace and become a responsible and ethical leader.
