Happy birthday, SHE!

Happy birthday, SHE!

SHE = School House Escapes, an acronym that was NOT intentional but suits our company better than expected, as you can see by the photo below! Our official “open” date (at least to our trademark attorney) is waaaaay back when we purchased our website...
Grit in students, Part II

Grit in students, Part II

First, let me confess that this post is not about my finest hour. In fact, I’m publicizing a big ol’ customer service faux pas to illustrate a point. If my Yelp rating goes down, I’ll know why. I wrote about grit in the classroom during last month’s blog post, wherein...

Students and grit

When I was in third grade, I can remember Mrs. Wagner making me repeat an entire cursive assignment because I looped the bottom of a lowercase “f” the wrong direction. I wasn’t the only one. She decided to stop the lesson and move to another assignment, promising we...

Sooooo, we’ve been busy this school year already by (surprisingly) adding another new service for our clients! And the best part is, YOU asked for it! As you may have read in the last blog post, we have recently implemented a good behavior program, which looks...

New digs for Schoolhouse Escapes

We finally unpacked our office. This is a sign of progress and a blessing for three reasons. First, it means that we can stop living out of boxes, saying things like, “In which cardboard box are the clocks?” or “The new locks are over there beside...
Back from Nashville & ready to roll!

Back from Nashville & ready to roll!

We swear that the only reason Schoolhouse Escapes flew to Nashville was to attend Transworld’s Room Escape Show and Convention. The. Only. Reason. We just managed to squeeze in some fun and touristy things while we were there! Lucky for us, our work is like a...
