On the academic front we are approaching the end of the 9 week grading period. EHS is on a semester system so this marks the 1/2 way point of the 1st semester. Teachers will be working on grades this Friday, and early next week a “progress report” will be mailed home to all parents. For all High School students, this time period from now until December, is a critical one academically. The year has gotten off to a good start, we made it through the craziness of Homecoming Week and by now students should have developed some routines around what it takes to be successful in the classroom. The more support parents can give to their student at home, the more likely they will be successful. If you are looking for ways to assist and support your student please feel free to contact their teachers anytime with questions.
On the atheltic front we have a busy week:
Today, 10/28 the EHS Varsity Volleyball team hosts LaSalle High School in EHS gym at 7:00 PM.
