Founding freshmen of St. Francis Episcopal School weren’t discouraged by the rainy weather during the Houston Art Car Parade. The first-time entrants showed their pack pride with “The Wolfmobile” - an art car they designed as part of their interim curriculum - and rode away with third place in the School category. Their art car was part of their Road Scholars Project, which was launched by the founding freshman class of the newly-opened Upper School. The project combined multiple disciplines, such as exploring alternate fuel sources, mechanical engineering, an in-depth art history course plus a practical “autoshop” class for students who will soon be receiving their drivers’ licenses. Pictured with Wolfie on parade day are (first row, from left) Bailey Flowers, Alex Irwin, Laura Bryant Anderson, Luke Moreton, Madison Brungardt; second row, from left) Alex Haug, Amal Ganim, John Kilsdonk, Maya Flowers, Sadeem Al Agari, Beth Looser (fine arts faculty), Krissy Richmond (fine arts faculty), Justin Doran (fine arts chair), Chandler Stephan; (on art car) Katelyn Brown, Samantha Brown, Grace Martinez. First place in the School category was "You're a Piece of Work" by Texas City High School National Honors Society & Megan Carpenter (Texas City) and second place in this category was "Bangarang Megatron Peevish LeMuy" by Frank Black Middle School Art Car Club & Julon Pinkston.
