School Culture Newsletter - March 2019

School Safety

On March 21st, a “Medical Safety Issue” was called by the EHHS administrative team for a medical emergency near the end of period E. The reason for why a “Medical Safety Issue” may be called for several reasons, but most importantly it may be called to keep the hallways cleared, so EHHS personnel, which includes administration, security and nurse along with our first responders (EH police, EH fire department, and EMTs) maintain a safe environment for all.  It allows for a speedy response to the individual and/or the situation that is being addressed, while maintaining the safety of our students and staff. It is a good reminder as a school community and for our EH families to review our safety procedures with your student. Please be remember when a “Medical Safety Issue” is called, no one is in imminent danger. As an administrative team, we will reiterate this to staff and students alike. That being said, it is the utmost importance that everyone in our Hornet Community remains calm in any type of emergency, so we maintain a safe environment for all. We will remain transparent with any incident that may occur by updating our Hornet Community via the school messenger system.

Family and Community Partnerships

During March we continued to work with students who take part in the Hornet Hive mentoring program. Currently, we have eleven students from the 9th grade and nine students from the 10th grade. Community members established relationships with these students and will continue working with them until June. The Prom Dress event took place on March 13th and 14th. Students took advantage and many walked away with a dress.

School-Wide Data Team

The SWDT met on March 28th to begin planning the workshops with the faculty to assist in guiding the 2019-20 School Improvement Plan. The team determined areas of need for next year. The team will present these topics to the staff at the faculty meeting on May 7th. Faculty will pick a topic to provide input on and meet on June 4th to create Action Plans for the 2019-20 school year.


Our Soaring Hornet for the month of February was April Carofano. Congratulations for being recognized for your exemplary instruction in your own room as well as your dedication to helping others succeed.  

Soaring Hornet for the month of February was April Carofano.

The next PBIS Connections lesson will happen on 3/29. The lesson will guide students through the process of determining how to write a meaningful shout out to a peer. 

Student Leadership


On February 28th our Connections Leaders facilitated team building activities after having lunch with their Little Hornets in the lecture hall. Our juniors and seniors led the students in two activities in the auditorium; Snap,Cap,1,2,3 and Green Glass Door. Our next mentor activity will take place in March.  

Scholar Hour Activity

On March 1st our Senior Connections classes facilitated an activity with 9th grade Advisories on the upperclassmen advice to their freshmen peers in the following areas; academics, extra-curricular activities, relationships, attendance and behavior. All 25 sections of our freshmen advisory were paired with our senior advisory groups.

Student Council

Spring is a time when Student Council takes a few minutes to say thank you to some hard working individuals who work endless hours and rarely get recognized. April 8-12 is National Assistant Principal's Week.  EHHS Student Council would like to thank the EHHS Assistant Principals; Mrs. Anderson, Mr. Fote, Mr. Lavoie and Mrs. Marion along with Mr Ryan for all they do for our school.  Because they rarely get a chance for lunch, during this week, Student Council will be buying them lunch. You can help too, remember Thank You goes a long way.
