EHPS Theory of Action #2: Build a Rich and Vibrant Learning Culture
Big hornet program
The Little Hornets met their mentors and had breakfast together. They asked each other a series of questions to get to know one another. We are looking forward to seeing a guest speaker together in Early March.
This month our Connections Council staff role modeled described two activities for our 9th grade advisors “Chicken Pick” and “Mingling to Music”. This activity will be used at the end of February.
Our staff groups met on February 16th to review this month’s School Connect activities:
10th grade- Taking Full Responsibility
11th grade – Charting your Future
12th grade- Negotiating an Agreement
As we're heading into warmer weather, EHHS students can look forward to volunteering at upcoming walks to support charities. Students interested in forming an EHHS team for the MDA Walk or the Apraxia Awareness Walk can express interest by signing up in guidance. Anyone looking to form a Youth Hunger Action Team or a Leadership Drum Circle Club sponsored by Youth Services? Attend an informational assembly in March. The Hall of Fame Bowling Alley on Silver Lane is looking for help during their Handicap Bowling Hour: Fridays from 4-6. Sign ups for all events in guidance. Also coming up: Bunny Breakfast & Egg Hunt, Youth Soccer, and Autism Speaks. Happy Service Learning!
On February 27th EHHS will host a workshop and lunch for our 6th and 7th grade students from Sunset Ridge. Approximately 30 students will walk over to EHHS for pizza, a student panel and activities. Select students from our Connections + group will run the panel and activities.
The EHHS Student Council will be attending the CAS Leadership Unconference held in New Haven on March 2-3. This overnight billed as "27 hours of intensive Leadership Training" allows student leaders to work together and network with student leaders from schools around Connecticut. Upon returning from the conference, EH STUCO will be holding our bi-annual Mr. EHHS Competition. Our Junior and Senior male contestants are sponsored by various sport teams and will be competing for a $200 prize to a charity of their choice.
