High School Weekly Update

From Co-Principals Ruby Bode & Chuck Scott

February 5, 2021

Dear EPHS Family,

One of the Global Outcomes that we value in our school and EP community is Global Awareness and Compassion. What this Global Outcome means to us at EPHS is that we seek to understand, value and advocate for, and engage with others in our community and globally. It means that we value multiple and diverse perspectives. This Global Outcome is a prerequisite to critical thinking & problem solving. We have faced many crisis this school year, and it has made us more aware of how crucial this Global Outcome is for moving forward together and creating a hopeful future.

National School Counselor Week

We are celebrating Mr. Loeffler this week because Feb 1-5 is National School Counselor Week! We appreciate the support he brings to us every day, but want to take a moment to say "thank you!" and "we love you!" to Mr. Loeffler. We are so happy he joined our bobcat family and are grateful for the positive impact he has had on our school community.

Celebrating Black History Month

During February, we take time to celebrate, recognize, and bring awareness to the experience and contribution of the people of African descent across the Americas. Visit the National Museum of African American History & Culture to learn more.

From the Counseling Office

We will hold a local scholarship meeting for ALL seniors on Monday, February 8, at 2:00 in the auditorium. We will talk about the process, timeline and applications for the 30+ local scholarships on offer. We hope to see all seniors there.


Mr. Loeffler will start presenting to juniors in their history classes on February 10th & 11th about looking ahead at future plans- like colleges and career options. For those not in history this quarter, there will be a 2:00 session offered on Thursday February 11th in the Auditorium.
