Eastwood High School
Principal's Update #33 - May 13, 2016
Dear Parents & Community Members
Eastwood high School continues to celebrate all of our successes and accomplishments as we move forward with the month of May. With the conclusion of the school year officially around the corner, we've got quite a bit of end-of -year activities in place to recognize all of our students one final time.
As a reminder, the "official" last day for Seniors - the Class of 2016 - will be on Tuesday, May 24th. Students in grades 9, 10, & 11 will finish on Friday, May 27th - which will also be an early release day with a 1:15 PM dismissal.
We look forward to celebrating everyone's achievement and hope to see many of you at one of our final activities of the 2015/16 school year.
Class of 2016....Here We Come!!!
On Friday, May 13th we took advantage of the wonderful sunny skies of northwest Ohio and encouraged students to wear their college apparel to show everyone where they are heading to next. We wish all of them - and the entire Class of 2016 - nothing but the best as they pursue their dreams and aspirations upon graduation on June 5th.
District Arts & Technology Show
European Trip Fundraiser
During this weekend's District Art & Technology Show, students who are attending the Spain, France & Italy trip in June 2017 have come up with a creative/artistic fundraising event that we hope you will consider participating in to support their efforts.
Students have been busy creating "upcycled "wine bottle Team Lamps, some of which you will see examples of in the attached flyer. Lamps are available for sale during a Silent Auction which will last the duration of the Art Show. A minimum opening bid of $15 is requested. Past that, the sky's the limit - remember you are helping 20+ students to embark on the experience of a lifetime that will forever change them!
We wanted to let you in on this so that if you see something you like, you can plan to come and bid high and bid often! Also, please share this information with your family and friends! We have started with a select number of teams but will also be taking orders if there is a special team for which you would like the lamp created. Here is what is for sale that evening:
University of Michigan
Bowling Green State University
and LOTS of Eastwood Lamps for different sports! (If we don't have one you want, let us know, we can make it!)
Lamps can be further customized if you would like to order one for a particular sport. We hope you can join us!
We hope that you will support this wonderful fundraiser while attending the Art & Technology Show. Further information can be found on the attached flyer to this week's email.
