Egg Harbor Township High School

Week of May 15, 2022

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL

Greetings,


Countdown is on! So many exciting things are happening right up through graduation on June 24th! To start, we are in the 4th week of EHT Idol. Make sure you get onto the school web page and vote! This week we have Kimora Stuckey going up against Adriana Allen! Good luck!!! Next week's contestants will be Min Hwang against Sophia Selerno for the semifinal round! Make sure you vote!


Tuesday May 17th, was the first of three strategic planning meetings for the district’s next 3-5 year plan. It was held at the High School. Dr. Gruccio reviewed the present plan and all that the district has accomplished in the past 3 years. Please visit the District web page under the Superintendent's Corner to see the presentation. We had an opportunity to meet in small groups with the community and Board of Education members to brainstorm with each group coming up with 3-5 ideas to possibly implement. The next strategic planning meeting will be held June 14 at Fernwood Middle School. At this meeting we will begin to narrow down suggestions to strong possibilities. All are welcome!


We had visitors in our building from Mastery Charter School in Camden to observe our model Hispanohablantes program. They visited Mr. Perez and Ms. De la Rosa’s classrooms to observe and learn. What a great opportunity for our High School to show off the Model Program Dr. Schreiner has established for our Spanish speaking students.

Wednesday, May 18th, Mr. Peter Murphy, of Stockton University, gave a workshop to our English Language Learners (ELL) and our Hispanohablantes students.


Thursday May 19th, there were several field trips that left the High School. Mr. Martirone and AP Government went to tour Independence Hall, the Declaration House (where Jefferson signed the Declaration of Independence) and the American Philosophical Society. Another great trip was Mr. Bell who took several classes (CAD II, Holocaust and African American Studies) to learn about dual credit at Stockton University. Our Academy of Business and Law had a trip to Ocean City where they toured the Chamber of Commerce, City Hall and Stainton Station.


On May 19th, our Symphony Orchestra students had their performance under the direction of Ms. DiSalvio. It was an excellent performance and wonderful to listen to. Mr. Wyckoff directed our wind and percussion ensembles to an equally wonderful performance. We are lucky to have such energetic and dedicated staff members who bring out the best in our students!


Mr. Dilks, our computer and technology teacher, informed us that 8 students have advanced to the second round of the A+ certification test exam. They travel to Ideal Technology again today for that second round of testing. Best of luck to them!


Mr. Sauter shared that one of our Senior automotive students, Sam Feinstein, has successfully completed and passed all 10 of the Automotive Service Excellence Entry Level Certification Exams. This is amazing since it is the first time in EHT history that any student has done such on the first try. Students are given up to two opportunities to pass each of the 10 exams. Sam passed all 10 on the first try! Congratulations Sam!! Well done! Way to make EHT proud! #EHTPRIDE


Until next week, have a wonderful weekend! Stay safe, be well, continue to dream of the possibilities ahead of us, be happy and smile at someone!


Ms. Connor

The High School has adopted a new bullying-prevention program for this school year!


#DAY1--a staff and student-led philosophy that will serve to foster a building-wide atmosphere of kindness and inclusion.


This program was started a few years ago in Bergen County by the Tyler Clementi Foundation and has gained momentum throughout the state and country for use in schools, community groups, workplaces, and sports teams. We even have 3 of our own students who were selected by the foundation as leaders for this initiative!


The premise is simple: the adults in the building make a “declaration statement” about behavior that is expected, as well as behavior that is unacceptable, and we all pledge to conduct ourselves accordingly. This includes seeking help when we witness unacceptable behavior occurring.


This notion is called being an #Upstander.

#Day 1 Staff Declaration 2021

Has your student taken their #Upstander Pledge yet?!?

Have them sign into their school account and click here! 😊

UPSTANDER PLEDGE
