STUDENTS OF THE WEEK

Dylan King

Nominated by: Tina DeMarco

Self-driven, excellent time manager, respectful, helpful to everyone, pleasant, empathetic, compassionate, hard working, attentive. Dylan is always looking for ways for our class to run more smoothly. He will pick up and put away books if he sees them out and not being used. He is communicative, always sharing what is happening as he is very active in our community. He volunteers to help other students who may be confused about a lesson. Dylan has become such an important part of our core science classroom. He is positive and kind and I think all of his teachers and classmates would agree, he deserves to be student of the week.



Dylan Jeffers

Nominated by: Theresa Miro

Responsibility: Dylan is always taking the necessary steps to being responsible. He takes time either before or after class to check in on his work/progress and is always prepared. Leadership: Dylan is involved in so many things in school and in the community. He is very open-minded, a great listener, and very persuasive. I always hear him involved in meaningful conversation with other students, be they his friends or just other students, and he really challenges the way they think about things and makes them think about their responses and actions and informs them on what they could do to help or participate in any situation.

FAREWELL, MARY POPPINS

Mary Poppins flew out of the EHTHS auditorium for the final time on Sunday. Our cast, crew, and orchestra did an incredible job of giving our audiences (well over 2,000 people!) a truly unforgettable performance. Thank you to everyone who supported EHTHS' Mary Poppins throughout the season. We are sad to say goodbye to this production, but excited for what is ahead. "Anything can happen if you let it!"

Senior Olympics/Junior Experience/Pep Rally

While the Freshmen and Sophomores sat for the NJSLA Assessment the first three days of this week, 12th grade competed in the annual rite of passage known as Senior Olympics and Juniors started a new tradition. Not taking the state assessment this year, Juniors were treated to a variety of educational assemblies as well as a day where they were able to choose workshops that they found relevant. Sessions were built around the district mission to EMBRACE, ENGAGE, and EDUCATE. The last day of the week saw the entire high school community come back together for our annual Spring Pep Rally. #EHTPride!

New Jersey Science League Competition Results 4.11.19

Here are the results from the NJ Science League Competition from 4/11/19, the final one this season, when we traveled to Hammonton High School. Some students were in the musical on opening night that night yet still devoted their brains to science and participated in the Hammonton competition, then rushed back to perform in Mary Poppins.


The results are considered unofficial until the league reviews the tests and scores from all competing schools in the state.


We finished 1st in all categories on 4/11/19, except in High School Physics (tied for 2nd place - missing 1st by 5 questions), and in Physics C (2nd place - our one student only had only 2 less questions right compared to 2 of Hammonton's students combined - who were in 1st place). The AP level Environmental Science team finished in 1st place in our area again, beating the perennial powerhouse - Cedar Creek - by one question!!


Congrats to all of our students, coaches, and teachers who are involved in making the Science League program at EHTHS such a great success! We had a fine season, especially in Chemistry, where we destroyed the local competition by a lot --- all season long!
