Ordering Official Transcripts over Winter Break

Official Transcripts are ordered through Parchment on our EHS Home Page by clicking here. Transcript requests are not processed during winter break. Official transcripts must be ordered through Parchment by midnight on Monday, December 21st to be sent out prior to winter break. Please be aware of all deadlines and plan accordingly


Seniors: Common Application Midyear Reports

Seniors requiring midyear reports for their Common Application should request a transcript via Parchment to be sent to the Common Application. This will allow counselors to electronically submit midyear reports. After requesting a transcript, students should notify their counselor they have done so in order for their midyear report to be finalized. Check directly with your Common Application colleges to see if the midyear report is required as this can vary from school to school.

“Scholarship Season” is approaching! (Great project for winter break)

EHS posts all scholarship opportunities in Naviance Student. Each student has an account where they can view the scholarship list under the college tab. The scholarship list can also be viewed under guest access (password: wildcats). A link to Naviance Student is on the EHS website under Families, then Counseling, then Naviance Student or https://student.naviance.com/eagan

Students should also check directly with the schools they are applying to inquire if they have any supplemental scholarships they can be considered for.

Another scholarship resource is https://www.fastweb.com/college-scholarships Students can make fastweb accounts to be emailed potential scholarships they qualify to apply for. Fastweb has made the scholarship search easier for students with key scholarship selections by school year.

Peer Tutors Needed for Trimester 2!

The Counseling Office is in need of virtual Peer Tutors for T2. We need help from students with excellent grades and who like to help others.

Resilient Parent Webinar Series provided by Nexus Family Healing:

Emotional Resilience: Supporting Our Kids, Supporting Ourselves

Parents are often exhausted, overwhelmed, and straight up scared thinking about how our children are going to make it out there in the world with their big emotions. What we find, however, is that children are more able to succeed when they have adults that can teach and model how to do this. In this seminar, we will discuss how to overcome barriers to being the confident, connected, and compassionate parent that you want to be.

Wednesday, January 13 at 7 p.m. CST


Helping Your Anxious Child

Many children experience anxiety at any point in time. This anxiety can significantly impact a child’s functioning in both home and school settings. Learn about the different types of anxiety and what you can do as a parent to help your child cope with the discomfort they experience as a result of their anxiety.

Wednesday, February 10 at 7 p.m. CST
