Egg Harbor Township High School

Week of January 9, 2022

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL

Greetings,


We had a crazy week with dismissal and buses, but our students did a great job listening and getting to where they needed to be to get their bus home. Thanks to our teachers for all their help in making sure students heard announcements for the buses.


On January 10, senior students in the Medical Science Academy went to Stockton University to participate in the Health Science Programs. The purpose was to expose our students to different paths they can take in the health/medical related fields. What a great opportunity!


Our students in the Pace Program have been acquiring job training knowledge and skills in the fields of manufacturing, medical assisting and wastewater management. See below for things they have accomplished!


Several of our students have made the All South Jersey High School Choir and had the opportunity to go to Rowan University on Thursday, January 13 for practice. They will perform on January 29 at Washington Township High School.


Students who have made the All South Jersey Band will practice at Rowan University on Friday and Saturday to perform on Sunday January 16, 2022


On Thursday, January 13, Our High School Band and Percussion Students under the direction of Mr. Wyckoff had a terrific performance in the auditorium. What a nice way to spend the evening listening to some great music!


Some upcoming dates you may want to know:

  • Ms. Elko, the Director of Guidance, will hold a middle school open house meeting starting at 6:00 PM on January 19 for all parents of incoming freshmen (class of 2025) to go over course offerings and information. Letters went out to all 8th grade students.

  • January 20 at 7:00 pm in the high school auditorium will be the orchestra and dance performances from our high school and middle school students under the direction of Ms. DeSalvio and Ms. Portnoy.

  • Ms. Theophall, our National Honor Society (NHS) advisor will hold the NHS inductions on Friday January 28. More info to come on this as well.


Don’t forget that Monday January 17 schools are closed in honor of Martin Luther King!


Until next week, have a wonderful weekend! Stay safe, be well, continue to dream of the possibilities ahead of us, be happy and smile at someone!


Ms. Connor

STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT

Students of the Week

Nominee: Alexander Noble

Nominated by: Ms. Miro

Since this week´s words are growth and progress, I can´t think of anyone more deserving of SOW than Alex. Alex has flown like an eagle and shown major progress in French class not only in language acquisition but in interpersonal and social skills as well. During every speaking activity, Alex partners with someone and gets them to start talking. During presentations, he was the first to volunteer to give his in front of the class, which is definitely daunting, and prompted more people to volunteer after him. Keep on soaring Alex!


Nominee: La'Dontay Atkins

Nominated by: Smith/Harris

Dontay has shown tremendous progress over this school year. He is participating more in class and helps his classmates when needed.

MSA Trip to Stockton University

Monday was the MSA senior trip to Stockton University- for a tour and overview of their PT and Exercise Science Program, Medical Simulation Suite, and their interactive Anatomage table! Great job students! Thanks to Stockton for the hospitality!!

Environmental Class Featured in NJEA Review

Our very own Mr. House and his 1st period Environmental class are featured on the front page in this month's NJEA Review. A magazine sent out to teachers across the entire state. Way to go Mr. House!

Sheikh Mahmud, Multi-variable Calculus (Independent Study) student, worked with Mr. Noble to “bend” a sinewave around circle (wreath) and a parabola (tree) using advanced mathematical techniques including vector-valued functions and arc-length parameterization.

The High School has adopted a new bullying-prevention program for this school year!


#DAY1--a staff and student-led philosophy that will serve to foster a building-wide atmosphere of kindness and inclusion.


This program was started a few years ago in Bergen County by the Tyler Clementi Foundation and has gained momentum throughout the state and country for use in schools, community groups, workplaces, and sports teams. We even have 3 of our own students who were selected by the foundation as leaders for this initiative!


The premise is simple: the adults in the building make a “declaration statement” about behavior that is expected, as well as behavior that is unacceptable, and we all pledge to conduct ourselves accordingly. This includes seeking help when we witness unacceptable behavior occurring.


This notion is called being an #Upstander.

#Day 1 Staff Declaration 2021

Has your student taken their #Upstander Pledge yet?!?

Have them sign into their school account and click here! 😊

UPSTANDER PLEDGE
