Egg Harbor Township High School
WEEK OF October 11, 2020
A Message From Our Principal
Final touches are being completed as we plan for our reopening of school. In a little more than a week, we will finally have students and teachers here in the building. The countdown is on! We are so excited to return even if it is with less people each day. I can not emphasize enough the need for everyone’s help to promote mask wearing and social distancing. We need to follow protocols to remain open.
Maintenance and facilities have been preparing to make our transition an easy one. While cleaning is always a priority, they will continue to clean and disinfect each and every day. Again, this is another area that is so important that we need to keep on top of it so that our school remains clean and acceptable to all.
Mr. Martirone and his AP Government class has been non-stop with what to do and how to vote. If you or anyone you know are unsure, please look at his webpage and YouTube videos. They have certainly helped me so I can track my ballot! Thank you Mr. Martirone and students!
It appears the Medical Science Academy has been very busy. We had a former student, 2005 graduate, Dr. Tim Dempsey, who met virtually with the MSA students to discuss his experiences on the front line with Covid and things to know when applying in the medical field. Also, Ms. Dickerson's classes had a virtual field trip with Stockton Exercise Science. EHT continues to do great things in our new teaching environments! Shout outs to all our teachers and students for the great work they are doing!
Letters went out this week with bus passes for all students returning to the hybrid model. We have ⅔ of the students returning and ⅓ staying completely virtual. I know our teachers will work hard to educate all students to the best of their abilities in their content area.
Have an awesome weekend! Until next week, stay safe, be well, continue to dream of the possibilities ahead of us, be happy and smile at someone! #EHTStrong, #EHTPRIDE, #EHTREADY.
Students of the Week
Student: Darryl Williams
Nominated by: Mrs. Dattilo
Darryl is an excellent student. He is a hard worker, polite and always has a pleasant attitude. Way to go Darryl!
Student: Nathan Walker
Nominated by: Mrs. Herman
Nathan is the model virtual student! He shows up to class on time, has his camera on, and participates during our meets! A bonus, he even laughs at my not so funny jokes too. Nathan deserves to be recognized for putting his best foot forward and giving a 100% during this virtual time :)
Dr. Dempsey Presents to MSA Students
Dr. Dempsey, the son of our very own Kim Dempsey in the EHTHS Library, gave an awesome guest presentation to our senior MSA students. A proud 2005 graduate of EHTHS, Dempsey went on to Rutgers, then did a fellowship with the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, specializing in Pulmonary Critical Care and getting a Masters in Public Health.
Dr. Dempsey worked on the front lines in New York City during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak, being a true medical hero!
Currently he is employed at The David Grant USAF Medical Center (DGMC) at Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield, California.
He shared what our students should focus on in their undergraduate studies when preparing for medical school. Dempsey discussed residency, MCATS, and what it takes to get into Medical school. He also explained the importance of having a purposeful, unique undergraduate life; becoming immersed in any healthcare experiences, like what he did in Africa studying HIV.
What a great thing for our senior medical academy students.

MSA Holds Virtual Field Trip
This year marks the 4th year that the senior MSA students have gotten to experience the Stockton Exercise and Health Program along with other health science field majors at Stockton University. Although this was the first virtual visit, students were able to hear from various staff, ask questions, see a live demonstration of the anatomage table as well as a demo of the simulation suite that Stockton offers. We also heard from one of the head athletic trainers and a member of the Physical Therapy faculty. The day closed with two presentations from school of health students and them sharing the experiences and the clubs they are involved with. Students asked questions through each presentation and the faculty made it a fun and interactive day!
