Egg Harbor Township High School

Week of June 12, 2022

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL

Greetings,


This past weekend, 15 members of our Boys Track team went to the State Championships. While none were state champions, there were several who placed second or third in their events. The boys had a great season and we are very proud of them.


On Friday, June 10, our Physics classes completed their engineering/stem project. These students spent the month designing and building to scale a boat that would float them. Their only materials were cardboard and duct tape. They had a fantastic day racing their boats in our pool. What a great way to complete a project!


The high school is grateful to the Education Foundation for bestowing awards of $2000.00 each to several students who applied for scholarships. A committee met and reviewed all applications. As a result, seven students were given scholarships. Those students, along with a parent, were invited to a dinner at Josie Kelly’s in Somers Point to accept their scholarship. Thank you to the Education Foundation for all their support of our students.


On Tuesday, June 14, the second of three Strategic Planning meetings were held at the High School. Dr Gruccio, our Superintendent, reviewed ideas from the previous meeting and the groups broke out again to narrow down our ideas to form goals that are attainable in the next 3-5 years. Dr. Gruccio will present the final plan to the BOE for approval.


On Wednesday, June 15, the Multicultural cCub had a wonderful fun day to end the year right here on campus.. Students had cultural food and dressed in clothing representing their heritage.


On June 16, the AP Art History classes had their field trip to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This was a great opportunity for the students to view many kinds of historical art concepts.


Also on June 16, our students who participated in the PACE Program, had an end of the year celebration as they completed their internships. What a great way to acknowledge their accomplishments.


There were over 200 seniors who were celebrated on Thursday, June 16, with a pizza lunch for completing four years of high school with no discipline infractions. We have 567 seniors that will graduate. This is a great accomplishment to have always done the right thing, being kind and respectful of the school and the code of conduct! I have always said, “We have great kids!” #EHTPRIDE


Speaking of doing the right thing, there is one week of school left! Next Wednesday thru Friday (June 22-24) will be abbreviated schedules for all students. Our seniors will be involved in Senior Week. I ask that parents have conversations with the underclassman as there is talk of pranks and vandalisms. I can assure you that the handbook is specific to our code of conduct. Anyone participating in such acts will be disciplined and suspended at the start of the school year in September. For some reason the talk is, what can they do on the last day if so many are involved? I can also assure you that we have cameras inside, outside and on the buses. We will view everything and call in July if we have to, to make sure the child has due process followed by the appropriate discipline. If severe enough such as vandalism and stealing, charges may be filed. We made it through the Tik Tok challenges so I ask for your assistance here as well. Please advise your child to continue the great behavior they have been displaying and avoid being a part of the crowd should a disturbance happen.


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

PACE Manufacturing and Wastewater Program Completion Ceremony

Pre-apprenticeship in Manufacturing and Wastewater Management students were awarded with certificates of completion and a celebration luncheon on June 16, 2022. In the inaugural year of the program, the students completed an online technical curriculum, ToolingU, and received job training experiences in welding and CNC. Throughout the inaugural year of the program the students have been offered the opportunity to visit many manufacturing worksites to learn more about the field and the different job roles within manufacturing. Many of the 29 students in the two programs will continue on to registered apprenticeships during the summer of 2022 with some committed to take aptitude tests in the fall to be placed on local union waiting lists. Congratulations to these awesome seniors and best of luck as they continue the journey of careers, college, or the service.

Egg Harbor Township School District Media Specialists Monthly Update - June 2022

COMMUNITY PRIDE

Student Assistance Program and Resources

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
