Involved students are 85% more likely to succeed in high school and beyond!
As we recently completed quarter 1, our athletes are doing better than ever in the classroom. With 335 athletes on our fall rosters, the average G.P.A. of fall teams was a 3.21 which was a great increase from last year’s team averages of 3.05. Only 3% of our athletes were affected by C rule and less than 1% became ineligible academically overall. With December just a few short days away, the winter season is now upon us. Girls’ basketball and wrestling begin on 11/27 and the other winter sports start on 12/2 or 12/4. Tryout information is on our school website for any athletes that need it! Please encourage your students to get involved and tryout for a sport!
The football team has qualified for playoffs which begin on November 28th! Good luck to our football team as well as our winter sport athletes during tryouts this week!

Activities @ EHHS
December is not only a fun and festive month outside of school, but one of the best times to be a student at EHHS. Breakfast with Santa is Saturday, December 2. Many of our students volunteer, and it’s a great family event. The quarter 1 Honor Roll celebration, Principal’s Bingo, will be held in the cafeteria in the two days before our holiday break. An email will be sent with pertinent details in the week leading to it.
The Future Teacher’s Club is back up and running with 14 students under the guidance of Ms. Brown! Ms. Yadav is voluntarily running a Math help club, and the Student Council has over 120 members—easily our biggest group in the school. Please encourage your students to take advantage of our open door policy and attend a meeting!
