WC East High School
DECA took 145 students to Hershey to compete in the state tournament. Twenty-six of those students earned an opportunity to compete in Orlando in March!
Our English and History departments took 70 students to the Uptown Performing Arts Center to see “The Mountaintop.” The student reviews were awesome!
Tutoring opportunities: Students who are struggling have access to tutoring with East Teachers! If your child is struggling, they can see Ms. Rightmyer in room 104 before 1st period, or during Viking Block, to get linked up with an after-school tutor. Tutoring sessions begin at 2:50, with various times available, and can be held in person or via Zoom.
The Melton Center Committee (led by Maria Guzman and Michelle Canel) held a ping pong tournament on Thursday, February 16th. Twenty or so students and staff participated in the fundraiser!
The EHS Academic team took to the stage to compete in the Chester County Championships on February 21st. The crew routed Conestoga and Unionville in the semifinals. The team will represent East on March 21st at the Chester County Championship.
Huge congratulations to the East Viking Cheerleaders on placing 7th at UCA Nationals in Orlando, Florida! The team competed for three days against 45 teams in their Division. It was a tough and competitive competition. After finals, they finished with only a three-point difference separating 1st place from 7th place!
Senior Max Parnis won the District One West Wrestling Championship for his weight class! He won the District One title, earned his 100th match victory (a very notable accomplishment), and was named the tournament's outstanding wrestler -a legit trifecta!
Congratulations to senior Jack Kushner, who scored his 1000th point in boys’ basketball. Jack will lead the team into the state tournament this Wednesday.
Seven students participated in this year’s speaking contest -their presentations ranged from Jim Gaffigan to Susan B. Anthony; all of the students did an awesome job! Our third-place winner was Dominic Avagliano, our second-place winner was Louis Sims, and our first-place winner was Amelia Lace!

Last weekend the EHS Model UN club went to the largest student-run Model UN conference, the North American Invitational Model United Nations (NAIMUN), in Washington, DC. East delegates represented countries from Belgium to Saudi Arabia and even significant historical or contemporary figures. We worked to solve solutions on pressing topics such as climate change, the impact of the privatized military, global security, and territorial disputes. Moreover, we experienced a guided tour of the Pentagon, where we saw the 9/11 memorial along with other memorialized hallways. With delegates in all four grades, the MUN group obtained a truly unique experience and a wonderful opportunity. Throughout the trip, we made late-night food runs, spoke improvised speeches in front of hundreds of people, met people from Singapore to Nigeria, expanded our viewpoints on global issues, and got closer than ever to other members. We’re very proud of the effort all of the delegates showed in getting out of their comfort zone, speaking up, and meeting new people!
A Message from WCCTC
Volunteering is Linked to Overall Happiness.
In fact, research from the National Institute of Health has found that “participation in voluntary services is significantly predictive of better mental and physical health”. Yet, according to the PA Youth Survey, less than one-quarter of teens in our area report they have volunteered in the last 12 months. To connect with your community, see your value in the world, and maybe even find a passion, check out these resources to Get Started Volunteering Today! #wcyouthmatter
Thank you, parents, for your continued support of our students!
