Senior News from PTO

Hurry! Hurry! Hurry!  Get your senior celebration tickets BEFORE April 5th when prices increase from $30 to $45!  That's a $15 savings if you act now!  Tickets will be on sale during lunch in the EHS Commons Wed, April 2nd thru Fri, April 4 for your convenience.   Make checks payable to EHS PTO-Class of 2014 and put your student's name on the memo line of the check.  You may also order tickets by mail or by dropping off the order form and permission slip to the Welcome Center.   Your student will not want to miss this end of high school party! 

WE NEED YOU!  Volunteers are needed for the early morning shift of Senior Celebration, from about 3 a.m. to 6 a.m.  This is a critical time when students will be receiving prizes and finding their gear to head home, and parents will be needed to help and also to clean up from the games and activities.  We will have coffee to keep you moving and it will be great fun to see the students make their farewells to EHS.  Please visit our invitation page at http://vols.pt/FF1NPF to choose your spot.  You will be sent an automated email confirmation and reminders as the date of the big event approaches.  It's easy and it promises to be a great evening!

PRIZE DONATIONS GLADLY ACCEPTED for our Senior Celebration gala event.  Gift cards in any amount for restaurants, stores, theaters, etc., tickets to major sporting events, electronic items such as Kindles or TV's, sporting equipment or dorm room items are all great prizes for our graduates.  Your donation will help defray the costs of the after graduation party and will be appreciated by the students.  Please make that extra $15 or $25 purchase the next time you are out shopping!  Donations may be dropped off in the Welcome Center or mailed to the school, ATTN: EHS PTO – Class of 2014.  Thanks so much!

Purchase a chance to win a reserved parking spot near Chaifetz Arena for the graduation ceremony on May 22nd.  The cost is $5 for one chance or $20 for 5 chances.  The deadline for ordering is Friday, May 9th.  The drawing will be held on May 15th at the final graduation practice.  Two winners will be chosen.  The Reserved Parking Raffle Ticket Order Form is attached to this email and is also available on the PTO website.  Fill it out and mail it to school, turn it in to the Welcome Center or turn it in with payment when your student purchases a senior celebration ticket during lunch.  Proceeds benefit our Senior Celebration!

WALL OF FAME photos are still being accepted!  Send a personalized message to your graduate by purchasing a small poster dedicated exclusively to him/her.  This poster will hang on the WALL OF FAME located in the hallway between Gym A and Gym B on the night of Senior Celebration.  The cost is $10 per poster and the photo you send in should be no larger than 5" x 7".  Consider buying one for each of your Senior's friends, too, and displaying group pictures as a reminder of good times.  The Wall Of Fame Order Form is on the PTO website.

EHS FINALS SURVIVAL KITS are just the pick me up students need when studying for final exams.  Each kit contains a bottle of water, 2 pencils, a sweet snack, a salty snack and a pack of gum.  The kits will be delivered the morning of the last full day of 2nd semester classes.  The cost is just $7.00 per kit.  These are available for ALL STUDENTS and proceeds benefit the Class of 2014 Senior Celebration.  The Finals Survival Kit Order Form is available at the Welcome Center or on the PTO website.

CAR DECALS:  Show your school spirit with a plain wildcat emblem or add your graduation year to show your class pride, it's up to you.  Either way, the car decals are a stylish way to promote our high school. The Car Decal Order Form is on the PTO website or copies are available at the Welcome Center.   Proceeds benefit the 2014 class and the decals benefit the entire EHS community.  Thanks for your support!

YARD SIGNS:  You can celebrate your Senior's Graduation Day with a yard sign.  The Class of 2014 Yard Sign Order Form is on the PTO website, or copies are available at the Welcome Center.  This fundraiser benefits the current Junior Class of 2015's Senior Celebration.

Graduation Information

Here is some information to help you with graduation planning:

Graduation Ceremony Information
 
Date:  May 22, 2014
 
Location:  Chaifetz Arena, SLU Campus, 1 South Compton Avenue  St. Louis, MO 63103
 
Time: 7:00 p.m.
 
Graduates expected to be in attendance by 5:45 p.m. 
 
Traffic can be very stressful in downtown at this time of night, so graduates are asked to allot plenty of time for arrival to the ceremony.  We have had some bad luck with rainstorms in the past so graduates are asked to be prepared to protect their gowns from the weather upon arrival.
 
Graduates enter through special doors on west side of arena.  No parents or guests are allowed in the lower-area, graduate staging area once graduates enter.
 
Graduates must where appropriate attire to the ceremony.  No flip-flops, tennis shoes, shorts, jeans, etc... permitted.  Graduates will be sent home to change if they arrive in inappropriate attire.
 
Front doors to Chaifetz Arena open for guests at 6:15 p.m.  In case of inclement weather, the arena staff may open the doors earlier.
 
Seniors are asked to only invite closest of family and friends.  We want to keep the ceremony respectful for all families.  Guests should be held to a maximum of 10 people or less.
 
Tickets:  Not needed.  Chaifetz does not collect them at the doors.
 
Elderly or handicapped may be dropped off on the sidewalk on southbound Compton.  There will be a sectioned off area to stop and drop off these guests prior to parking.  The ramped walkway up to the arena from that location is step-free.
 
Guests with special seating needs:  Please ask arena staff upon entering the stadium and they will guide guests to the platform areas where they may view the ceremony from special seating.  Usually another guest can sit in close proximity.
 
The covered parking garage at Olive St and Compton, just north of the arena is open to graduate and guest parking and is free to all.  Please refer to http://thechaifetzarena.com/parking_directions for more information on the site and parking.
 
Pictures with graduates in gowns should be taken prior to the ceremony as we collect their gowns immediately after the ceremony.  The nice gowns are rented for this ceremony and need to be returned prior to receiving the actual diploma.
 
Ceremony usually lasts about 1 hour and 40 minutes.  Graduates are welcome to leave after they return their gowns and collect their diploma.
 
Diplomas will not be given to students with outstanding fines or fees.  You can check for any outstanding fines up till the date of the ceremony on your student's Infinite Campus page.
 
Reminder that Senior Celebration lock-in goes on at EHS the night of the Commencement Ceremony.  Graduates are usually required to be checked in at EHS by 10:30-11:00 p.m. that evening.
 
Any further questions, please do not hesitate to call Ms. Glatt in the Senior office at 636-733-3121.
