Student Clubs and Organizations 

Skype Kenya

Lori McDermott leads this group of ESMS students as they develop friendships with students at our sister school, The Red Rose School in the Kibera slums of Nairobi, Kenya.  Students meet in Mr. Getz's office at 8:00am twice a week, connecting with their friends 7000 miles away via the Internet.  The Skype Kenya Club provides an exchange of ideas and information as well as a cultural connection through songs and poetry.  Each ESMS student is assigned one or more pen pals to email during the year.

The ESMS Student Council and the Skype Kenya Moms (an offshoot of the student program) raise money to fund scholarships for our friends in Kenya to attend high school.  They also collect and send soccer equipment to Kibera.
