Egg Harbor Township High School

Week of March 21, 2021

A Message From Our Principal

Greetings,


It’s been a fabulous week! As students came into the school on Tuesday we had a visit from our school mascot,”Mighty,” the eagle. Halls were decorated and balloon arches were visible. It was so exciting for us to see more in-person students in the hall. They are doing such a great job following the rules of social distance and wearing the PPE as necessary! We have great students!


Currently I am optimistic that things can only get better! Our seniors have also been doing a great job with driving and parking. They have been on time and ready to learn. Speaking of driving, just a reminder to parents who are dropping their child off, we have two drop offs/pickup areas. The one in front of the school and the one adjacent to the bus lot. Just ask your child where A wing is! That’s the entrance by our weight room. They will know and that drop off might just get you out of the long line at the main entrance of the school. You can also pick up at that location. This could spread out the cars and make for a quicker drop off and pick up. Just an idea.


We have finished most of the winter sports at this point. Volleyball and wrestling are winding down and spring sports will start soon. I think our athletes are eager to get outside and be active. Our school play, “Les Miserables,” will be taping over spring break and be ready for viewing shortly after we return from spring break.


Speaking of spring break, Just a quick reminder that if you travel outside the tri-state areas (PA,DE,NY and CT) you will have to quarantine when you return. Your child can certainly attend school virtually so they can keep up with their work. Please contact our school nurses at 653-01100 x1612 if you know you will have to quarantine and they will help you with the date of return to school.


Make sure you talk to your child if you want to know about the scheduling process. Students in the past few weeks have already met with counselors and have picked their courses for the 2021-2022 school year. That’s right, we are already looking towards the next school year. It happens fast!


Until next week, stay safe, be well, continue to dream of the possibilities ahead of us, be happy and smile at someone!


Ms.Connor

EHTHS Multicultural Club Presents EHT Idol 2021

2021 GroMoreGood Grassroots Grant

Mrs. Delaney and Mr. House wrote and won a grant called 2021 GroMoreGood Grassroots Grant. This grant is for 1,000 dollars and will be used to build more raised garden beds in their outdoor classroom. The raised garden beds will be available for a variety of classes to be able to plant what they want in the raised beds and then harvest the crops. We hope that this will become a project that runs each year for our classes and for other science classes. The students will be learning the process for growing food and this will tie into food sustainability and how climate change may affect growing seasons.

GIRLS CREW

On March 20th, our girls crew team got back in the water for their first event of the season. Varsity 4 'A' took second place in the Lake Lenape Sprints. The Varsity 4 'B' Crew took third place in the same race.

BOYS CREW

Our Team was really excited to get back on the water a few weeks ago and even more excited to race this past Saturday on Lake Lenape. Everyone has been working hard to prepare and they were ready to go, that is for sure. Our decisive win in the Varsity 8 and a “Super” exciting come from behind Victory in the 2nd 8 race proved that “Hard work pays off”. We are only 12 experienced rowers and 10 novices but we make up for our small numbers with Enthusiasm and Grit. 8 of our rowers were in two races and ended up winning both of their events. While this is only the start of our Season we are excited to begin and are hoping for good things. The Coaches have a “Big” commitment to teaching “Our Student Body” more about rowing and all the good things it can do for you. With the weather getting nicer the water is a great place to be. If you are up for the Challenge we will give you the opportunity to get out there and give it a try! If interested let Coach Kelley know by email ehtboysrowing@gmail.com

BOYS AND GIRLS SWIMMING

​As the shortest swim season swimming has seen in a long time come to an end, it was not short of amazing things for EHT Swimming. Girls swimming finished 8-1 taking the CAL American title. Boys Swimming finished 9-1, tied with St. Augustine Prep for the best CAL Record.


EHT graduates 3 Senior girls Alexandria Cotter, Ava McDonough, and Isabelle Rando. During their time the girls have won 2 CAL American Championships, 3 SJISA Coaches invitational Titles, the first ever CAL swimming championship meet title, and made it to the NJSIAA Group IV Sectional Title round all three years they were able to. This year had we had the chance may have been their best chance since 2016.


Boys Swimming graduates 6 senior boys AJ Mallari, Brandon Bell, Carter Hubbard, Andrew Dang, Josh Dimayuga, and Kyle Kissick. During their 4 years they have won 2 CAL American Championship titles, were also the first to win the CAL Championship team title, they placed 2nd for the last three years at the SJISA Invitational, made it to the NJSIAA Group IV Sectional title round ​the last two years and looked to have a promising shot as well this season.
