Eastwood High School

Principal's Update #31 - April 29, 2016

Dear Parents & Community Members

Finally, all of our State Testing is done at Eastwood HS. Overall, the process went extremely well as the students and staff were prepared each of the days. Regardless of the "craziness" of the schedules that we've dealt with over the past few weeks due to testing, we made it through and should find out the results during the summer months. I truly appreciate the efforts of the staff - and especially Mrs. Schuessler (District Test Coordinator) - for helping to organize and administer the tests to our students this year.

Next up....This weekend are the Eastwood HS Prom and After Prom events. Countless hours have been put in by staff, parents, and students to make this year's events a safe and memorable one for all those planning to attend. Their collective efforts will certainly make this year a success and I look forward to seeing all of our students enjoy a safe weekend with the planned festivities.

Go Eagles!!!

Eastwood Track - Mattress Fundraiser

Everyone always needs a good night's sleep - and a comfortable mattress to sleep on. If you're looking for either, please consider purchasing a mattress at the 1st Annual Eastwood Track Mattress Fundraiser.

An informational flyer is attached to this week's email and you may see any track member for further details.

Student Recognition at Penta Career Center

The Student Affairs Office (SAO) has implemented a positive referral system to recognize students who are performing above expectations or making improvements to meet/exceed expectations. We have been informed that the following Eastwood HS student currently attending Penta recently received a Penta Positive Referral:

Jacob Marsh

This student earned a “Penta Fast Pass” which entitles him to move to the front of the serving line in the cafeteria and an “I Made the Wall” t-shirt to be worn on Fridays (only given to the 1st 100 students each semester). Congratulations!!!

OSA Sponsors Shoe Drive

Eastwood High Schools's student group One Step Ahead (OSA) will be holding a district wide shoe drive starting May 2nd through May 20th. Drop off locations will be at the High School, Middle School, Luckey Elementary, and Pemberville Elementary main offices. The only requirements are the shoes need to be wearable, pairs, closed toed, but can be any size. The shoes will be donated to the SewHope Organization that travels to Peten, Guatemala where they supply the community with shoes. Please, help us support this worthwhile cause. An informational flyer is attached to this week's email and you may see any OSA member for further details.

Mane Miracle

The Eastwood community does a wonderful job in supporting our collective efforts at school and throughout the area. Here's yet another example of how we can all help. Special thanks is given to senior Lindsey King for bringing this event to our attention:

Have you ever wanted to be a part of a world record? Now is your chance: start growing your hair out now, and donate it on September 8th at the Mane Miracle. Not only will you contribute to a world record, but you will also help to provide wigs to cancer patients. Donations less than 8'' will be used to clean up oil spills, so everyone can help!
