I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! Safe travels to those visiting across the miles. Enjoy your time with family.
I am pleased to announce the inaugural 9th Grade Principal's Advisory Council (PAC-9) will begin January 2016!
The purpose of the committee is to provide feedback in matters related to high school transition, course selection for freshman, as well as respond to questions from me focused on how to improve the lives of EHS freshman. Students selected will serve through the end of the current school year.
PAC-9 Students will also participate as EHS Ambassadors traveling to LSMS and WMS with me in preparation for next year's class.
Selected students will receive a letter December 1st, 2015 with additional instructions. I look forward to working with this great group of Wildcats! Like Dr. Eric Knost, I want to see my students THRIVE!
This rainy, cold day reminds me that Winter is headed our way. Soon it will be snowflakes and freezing temperatures in the forecast. With that in mind, I wanted to share with you that EHS Key Club is sponsoring a coat drive starting today, Monday, November 16th and running through next Monday, November 23rd.
We will collect winter coats (of all sizes), hats, mittens, gloves, and scarves every morning before school in the commons. We will happily accept any donations you might have hiding in the depths of your closets:)
This coat drive is a part of a larger drive sponsored by St. Louis Special School District. All items collected will be dispersed to elementary, middle, and high school students in the St. Louis area.
Thank you ahead of time for your support! I know the Key Club Sponsors Sandra Merrell and Kim Eastlund are very appreciative!
The annual Veteran's Day Celebration took place at Eureka on Tuesday, 11/10/15. Many current and former staff serve or have family that are proud members of the US Armed Forces.

Next EHS Parent/Teacher Conference Night
Thursday, October 22nd - 4:00pm - 7:30pm
If you missed the 1st night of conferences, or didn't get to meet with all of your teachers, make plans for the 2nd night, on Thursday, 10/22.
Meetings last 10 minute check-in meetings for each class your student is enrolled in.
Top discussion points for freshman:
Are they engaged in learning?
Are they making adequate progress towards learning goals?
Are they appropriate in class?
Are there specific concerns?
If you have a concern or topic that will require additional time, please consider making an appointment with the teacher at a future time. We ask that all parents respect the 10 minute conference time limit.
If you need additional help, or have other questions/concerns, please see an administrator in the Commons, a counselor in the Guidance office. We will be available throughout the duration of both conference evenings.
Hope to see you on Thursday, 10/22!
And it's FREE!!!
On Monday, 10/19 E!Crew is sponsoring an Ice Cream Social for all 9th grade students! Teachers of 9th graders are also welcome!
You'll find us in the Courtyard after school, beginning at 3:20pm.
Hope to see YOU there!
