Egg Harbor Township High School
Week of April 18, 2021
A Message From Our Principal
I’m loving seeing our students participating in outdoor sports and enjoying life & having fun!! I am also very excited to see our in person students return for 5 days of in person instruction. On Monday April 26, Students will transition from their one day of virtual instruction to five days of school in person. Of course, there are some students who have opted to stay fully virtual for the remainder of the year. Just a quick reminder, to all students returning back to in person instruction, a face shield is required to be worn over the mask while moving through the hall during the change of class. Face shields can be picked up in any assistant principal's office.
Students in World Language classes have been practicing for their AP exam. They were in the building this week working hard with our teachers. Other AP classes are preparing as well. Won’t be long now before they take the exams.
National Honor Society Inductions were held on Thursday. We had 107 Juniors and Seniors inducted. Students were able to attend the in person ceremony or watch from home to hear their name or see their friends being inducted.
Make sure you continue to check the High School web page and vote for EHT Idol! Two more students will be posted there to perform for your entertainment then you can vote. Our students are doing such a nice job. It's so hard to pick a winner to advance each week!
There is excitement in the school about the 2021 Prom. All information is on the High School web page. Tickets will be for sale shortly. See the prom packet for details.
Until next week, stay safe, be well, continue to dream of the possibilities ahead of us, be happy and smile at someone!
