Our Traditions

6th grade students perform the Maypole dance at May Day

The things we remember most about our school days are the friendships, traditions, events, and celebrations. Through our traditions, we celebrate the school community and make lasting memories. Together we welcome new families, connect with current and alumni families, and build lifelong friendships.

Halloween Parade

Students and faculty arrive in costume and parade throughout the campus, sharing their creations with their fellow students, parents, grandparents, faculty, and staff.

GrandFriends' Day

This fall event is one of our most cherished traditions. GrandFriends share a morning at school with their grandchildren and are appreciated in a special Chapel program.

May Day

A beloved tradition at Episcopal Day, May Day is a celebration of spring, our community, and our graduating eighth graders. Each class performs dances for the 8th grade class.

Fall Festival

Fall Festival, a family event hosted by the Day School Parents’ Association in September, is the perfect way to kick-off the new school year for the whole community. There are rides, activities, and food for all ages!

Blessing of the Animals

St. Francis Day is for the whole family - children, parents, and pets! The community gathers outside for a short service and the school chaplain blesses each of the pets.

Art Show

Talent abounds as students in pre-k through eighth grade share their favorite creations from their year’s work in the visual arts, both 2 and 3 dimensional pieces.

Book Fair

Episcopal Day students love to read and the annual Book Fair is a highlight for readers of all ages. The proceeds enhance the main school collection and help build classroom libraries.

Science Fair

There is school-wide participation in the Science Fair, with middle school students presenting individual projects. Many of our projects qualify to move on to the regional and state science fairs.

A Day For Donuts

Who doesn’t like to start a cold winter morning with warm donuts while raising funds for the Early Childhood book program? Enjoy donuts, juice, music, and good company.

8th Grade VS. Faculty Kickball Game

Waves of blue and yellow glistened across Mustang Meadow as 8th grade competes against faculty and staff in the nostalgic student vs. faculty kickball game. This is a community-wide event much loved by all!


Graduation is the culminating event for our eighth-grade students and families. Led into Chapel by the traditional bagpipes, families celebrate their students and years at the school.
