Senior News for October from PTO

IT'S HERE...OUR BABIES ARE SENIORS!  They are now the Kings and Queens on campus!  It will be a year filled with plenty of excitement, fun, emotions and memories that they will carry with them throughout their lives.  One of the memories that we, as parents, get to create AND participate in, is Senior Celebration 2016 (SC2016).  SC2016 takes place the night of graduation 10:30 PM (May 24th) until 5 AM (May 25th).  It is a secure, safe and drug-free/alcohol-free lock in held at LaSalle Springs Middle School (LSMS).  Kids check in and are not permitted to leave until the next morning.  We will create an evening of entertainment and fun that they will spend with their graduating classmates.  Traditionally this event has been held at EHS, however, due to our new locker room construction we have had to move off-site. 


If you were not able to attend one of our Spring meetings detailing the event, please plan to join us at 6:00 PM onMonday, October 19th, in the Library at LSMS.  We will explain in more detail the fun we already have planned and some of the ideas we're still creating.


We do have a SC Chairperson who is working to recruit and establish committees to take on small, manageable pieces of the event.  Each committee has defined roles and timelines.  If you are willing and able to volunteer your time and talents to this wonderful cause, please email Michelle Clausius at



SC2016 TICKETS - Currently our ticket price is $40 per student.  After December 18, 2015, the price will increase to $50.  Our Event Information & Order Forms are attached and can also be found on the EHS PTO website.

WALL OF FAME – This is a special part of Senior Celebration with an entire area dedicated to the display of messages to our seniors.  Your message, along with a special photo, is turned into a poster and makes a nice keepsake for your graduate!  It's a fundraiser for the event, and your child will truly appreciate seeing your personalized message just for them.  The Order Form is attached  and can also be found on the EHS PTO website.


GRADUATION PARKING RAFFLE - We are raffling off two reserved parking spots near Chaifetz Arena for the 2016 Graduation.  To enter for a chance to win, see the attached Order Form, which can also be found on the EHS PTO website.


FINALS SURVIVAL KITS - This has been an extremely successful fundraiser for our Class over the years and we will be in charge of it again for our final school year for the Class of 2016.  This kit is a treat you can order for your child(ren) to express your encouragement and let them know how proud you are of them, in anticipation of taking their finals.  TheFinals Survival Kit Order Form is attached to this email and can also be found on the EHS PTO website.  In addition, we need items to fill these kits.  We would greatly appreciate your generosity and support in donating any of the following items, which should be clearly marked "Class of 2016 FSK" , and can be dropped off at the Welcome Center: bottled water, individual sized packages of pretzels, individually packaged (store bought) Rice Krispie Treats, packages of sugar-free gum, individually wrapped peppermint or cinnamon hard candies, and #2 pencils.  (Please understand the reasoning for such specific requests in an effort to include as many as possible, while considering the many food allergies noted on individual's order forms.)  If you have questions, please email Jill Smith at

DIRECT/MATCHING FUNDS DONATIONS - Lastly, remember that you can always make a direct monetary donation to the Class of 2016 to support our Senior Celebration funding.  Many companies match employee’s donations to 501(c)3 organizations – and since the EHS PTO is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, we can doubly benefit from your donation.  Checks should be made payable to “EHS PTO/Class of 2016” and can be mailed to the school or dropped off at the EHS Welcome Center.


SENIOR CLASS PARENT REPS:  Please feel free to contact one of us with any questions or suggestions you may have as we work toward a successful, fun, and memorable final year of high school for our kids.
