Excelsior Springs High School
News and Notes
Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Coming to Excelsior Springs High School!
I am excited to announce that Introduction to Engineering (IED) will be taught by Tony Harman. Tony's passion for innovative teaching and strong math background make him an ideal fit for this program. Tony will continue with his Instructional Coach duties on a part-time basis until the program is fully implemented. Please join me in congratulating Mr. Harman in this new endeavor!
JV Boys Take First Place!
Congratulations to the JV Boys Basketball team for taking first place last Saturday in the Excelsior Springs Tournament. The varsity boys and girls will be competing next week in the Cameron Tournament. Go Tigers!
Please keep sending pictures of students engaged in your classrooms. Parents and students are connecting with us through Facebook. Classroom activities and student achievements have been very popular, and remember, most of your students like seeing themselves on our page. More pictures = more opportunities. Thank you for all the pictures you have sent and keep them coming!
The iPads are Coming. The iPads are Coming!
This Thursday iPads will be delivered to every freshman, marking the beginning of a major shift that will see ESHS becoming a fully 1:1 campus in under three years. There will inevitably be hiccups, both foreseen and not, but I encourage you to stay focused on the opportunity that we have been given to transform our students' learning and persevere through any implementation headaches.
