EHS Principal’s Message, May newsletter and dates

gordPrincipal’s Message

We are fast approaching the end of the year.  I want to encourage all students to put in the extra time and effort necessary to ensure good grades in each of their classes.  We have only 7 weeks until final exams start.

Congratulations to Ms. LeSann and the Drama Club for their fine performances of “Nine Worst Break-ups of all Time”.  As well, thank you to Mrs. Helmeczi and Ms. Scharnatta-Kerr for the long hours working with Jr. Drama.  Also, “Thanks” to Ms. Deshaies for wrestling, and Mr. Walker and Mr. Krawetz for badminton.

Every student has completed a survey that was commissioned by the Ministry of Education, called Tell Them From Me.  The survey measures include such topics as social/emotional outcomes, physical health, and drivers of student success.  It also allows students to give their thoughts in open-ended question responses.  The survey is secure and anonymous, and we use the results to improve our practices.  Grade 9 and 10 students have also done the PISA assessment, an international test designed to see how large educational systems are performing.  Lastly, all grade 9-12 students will do a short survey on Cancer Risk Assessment conducted by the University of Waterloo.

Feel welcome to come to the music program’s “Coffee House” at 7:00 pm on May 7 at the Boreen Hall.  It has always been very entertaining.  The Track Meet is scheduled for May 13th.  Our Academic Awards Program will be held on May 28 in the Jr. Gym, starting at 1:00 pm.

Please refer to our calendar for all the events going on at EHS.

Please drop in if you have any questions or concerns.  I would be glad to discuss them with you.
