Estes students are engineers!
Estes was honored to be a school that was visited by education leaders attending the Leader in Me Symposium recently in Owensboro. We were proud of our students as they displayed their leadership skills while hosting these special guests. Our students gave tours in the building, gave presentations, answered questions, and sang songs about how they are using the Seven Habits everyday to become successful lifelong leaders.
Christmas was made a little merrier this year for the students at Estes thanks to the members of Good Shepherd Church. They provided each student with a wrapped gift containing an age appropriate Lego set. Take a look at our photo gallery to see all the fun and smiles. Thank you, Good Shepherd Church for sharing your Christmas spirit with us!

Students at Estes learn early that GRIT means showing passion and perseverance and never giving up even when something is hard. Before Christmas break, Estes students learned that showing GRIT really pays off. Students that had earned GRIT tickets this past nine weeks were entered into two contests where their names were randomly selected to be winners. The first student names selected, enjoyed coke and popcorn while watching the movie Moanna at the Malco movie theater. The second students names selected won new bicycles and helmets donated by our local Academy Sports + Outdoors store. Be sure to stop by our photo gallery to see our happy GRIT winners!
On Valentine's Day, the winning students of the latest GRIT contest were taken on a trip to the Edge Ice Arena where students had the chance to ice skate as well as enjoy a snack. Once again our students learned that showing patience and perseverance has great rewards. Even the youngest Estes student will tell you that when things get hard you cannot quit---you keep going and show GRIT! Be sure to check out our photo gallery for more photos.
