The Class of 2015 Ring Ceremony will be May 2. The ceremony will begin at 7:15 a.m. and last about 30 minutes. Parents will formally present their child their class ring during the ceremony, and refreshments and a performance by The EHS Jazz Band will follow.
Andrea Litzsinger won the People’s Choice award at the Eco Show hosted by St. Louis Community College at Wildwood! That means that her piece received the most number of votes from visitors throughout the week. Congratulations Andrea!
Andrea's piece and many more will be on dislplay at the EHS Art Show on April 3rd.
Don't forget that Parent-Teacher Conferences have been rescheduled for this Wednesday (2/27) from 4:30 - 8:00. If you didn't get a chance to meet your student's teachers back on the 12th, we hope to see you here on Wednesday!
A note from the PTO:
As parents of Sophomores this year, we are beginning the planning process for the October 2013 Taste of the Town. Please join us on Tuesday, February 26th at 6:30 p.m. at Poor Richards in Eureka. We'll make it simple, short and fun as we get to meet each other and begin our initial efforts in organizing this fundraiser. We've reserved the back room and hope to see you there. If you can't make it and still want to help with this major fundraiser that supports our Class of 2015 Senior Celebration, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A representative from Josten's will be here from 4:00 - 6:00 on the night of Parent-Teacher Conferences, February 12. They will also be here on the 13th at lunch to take orders for rings.
Regardless of whether or not your student is getting a ring, we hope to see you on either the 12th or the 21st for Parent-Teacher Conferences!
Believe it or not, we have already been in school over 4 weeks this semester! That means it's Progress Report time. Hopefully, you've been keeping up to date with your student's progress via Infinite Campus. We also have 2 opportunities to come in and speak with the teachers. Tuesday, February 12, and Thursday, February 21, from 4:30 - 8:00 are Parent-Teacher Conference nights at Eureka High School. We hope to see you one of those evenings!
Class of 2015 Fund Raiser:
We will have our first “Taste of the Town” planning meeting on Tuesday, February 26, for the Class of 2015! Please meet us at 6:30 p.m. at Poor Richards in Eureka to begin planning for our students’ turn to host the “Taste of the Town” in October of 2013. This will be the largest fundraiser for our student’s Junior year and many volunteers will be needed. We need volunteers to help with everything from decorations to donation collections. The more volunteers we have, the less time and work any of us have to commit to!
Monies raised from this event will go toward the Senior Celebration for the Class of 2015. Senior Celebration is a safe and fun, drug/alcohol free “lock-in” event that is held for the graduating students on graduation night. Please feel free to call your Class of 2015 Co-Presidents if you have any questions or you would like to volunteer, but cannot make the meeting.

Larry Glennon of Josten's came last Monday to speak to our Sophomores about class rings. I want to thank you for getting the kiddos to that presentation!
I might be able to answer a few basic questions, but I am by no means an expert. I would check out their website, jostens.com, if you have any questions.
A Josten's rep will be in the commons at lunch on Tuesday and Wednesday, February 5 and 6, to collect orders for rings.
Also, a rep will be in the commons in the evening on Monday and Tuesday, February 4 and 5, from 4:00 - 6:30 to personally answer any questions you may have and to collect orders.
A representative from Josten's will be here Monday morning, Janaury 28th to speak with the Sophomores about class rings. The meeting will be in the large theater. We set up the presentation on a late start day so students would be missing as little classtime as possible (In the past, we pulled students out of class for this presentation.). I can't say that it's mandatory for the students to be here at the normal 8:16 a.m. start time that day, but I hope that you can make sure your child is here at that time on Monday morning. It's important for them to be here because Josten's has all the answers to the questions, and we don't. Thanks for your help.
It's time to choose classes already for next year. The portal is open on Infinite Campus now through January 28th to enter your student's class choices. It is not a "first come, first served" situation, but classes need to be entered by the 28th or the guidance office will be picking the classes for your child. If you have any questions, the guidance office has a PowerPoint presentation on the EHS website under the Guidance tab explaining all of the choices and requirements.
First semester is quickly coming to a close! On Tuesday, students will take their 5th hour final then attend the rest of their classes. On Wednesday through Friday, students will be dismissed at 12:26 after taking 2 final exams each day.
All of us at EHS are always concerned about school safety, but Friday's tragedy made us look even harder at what we can do to keep our students safe. One immediate change we want everyone to be aware of is that after 8:15 a.m., every one will need to enter the building through The Welcome Center. The doors at the circle drive entrance will be locked after 8:15 a.m. While it may be inconvenient at first, we feel it's a necessary step to keep our students as safe as they can be.
I know this gets to be an incredibly busy time at home and at school. Please take time over the next two weeks to slow down, relax, and spend some quality time with family and friends. Thanks for all you do in support of EHS and your children. However and whatever you celebrate, I hope you have a blessed holiday season!
EHS sophomore, Hannah Long, finished 10th at the Footlocker Cross Country Championships over the weekend in San Diego. The Footlocker Cross Country Championships is the longest running cross country race in the nation. It is comprised of four regional 5k races around the country with the National Finals in California. This is one of the most prestigious high school sporting events and one of the coolest events in which any high school student/athlete can participate. Earlier in the fall, Hannah also earned the Class 4A state championship and her team brought home a 2nd place state trophy. Hannah is now ranked as the 10th fastest high school female cross country runner in the nation. Please join us in congratulating her on this major milestone in her life and as an amazing young student/athlete. |
