Egg Harbor Township High School
Week of November 22, 2020
A Message From Our Principal
My how things in a week could change! I am thrilled that we were able to implement the hybrid schedule and feared what the rise in Covid cases could mean for our county and school. We are now at the point where full remote learning will go into place starting Monday November 30th and continue until January 19th. This certainly has been a year to forget! Still, our teachers and students work hard and strive for some kind of normalcy.
Just last week I mentioned how our fall sports were completing their seasons. Our field hockey team played their hearts out last Saturday against rival Ocean City and went into a double overtime. While they lost, it was exciting to witness and nothing to be ashamed of. They gave it their all.
You may recall in the Superintendent's report a few weeks ago, she mentioned this is the month of gratitude, and I am grateful that we were able to have a fall season in which student athletes were able to compete and fans were able to attend. Who knows how our winter sports will shape up, but I am hopeful for a winter season.
Let us now be grateful for all that we have, family, friends, teachers and the people who have touched our lives. While the next few weeks are not going to be easy, we need to stay the course. Parents, please try to motivate your children to be online and in class. We need your help. We can get through this as a community. All working together. Parents, teachers and students!
I leave you with this quote from James E. Faust, “The thankful heart opens our eyes to a multitude of blessings that continually surround us.”
Have an awesome Thanksgiving holiday! Until next week, stay safe, be well, continue to dream of the possibilities ahead of us, be happy and smile at someone!
SATs scheduled for 12/5 at EHTHS have been canceled. Please visit @collegeboard for more information on future dates.
Our Students Share What They Are Thankful For
Students of the Week
STUDENT: Anthony Larcombe
NOMINATED By: Mr. Chris Baumgartel
During technical difficulties, Anthony stepped up when his teacher was kicked from the classroom. Instead of wasting the time, Anthony immediately streamed Chemistry videos that he had watched on YouTube and actually began educating the other students about the chemistry of elephant toothpaste, a specific type of chemical reaction. For his dedication to learning in the Virtual Environment, I give Anthony my highest recommendation for Student of the Week.
STUDENT: Chris Robledo
NOMINATED By: Mrs. Terry & Mrs. GrassiChris starts every class saying good morning to both myself and Mrs. Grassi. Chris is on time and ready to work daily. Chris completes all classwork and homework in a timely manner. Chris is driven and shows an overwhelming desire to succeed. At the end of class Chris always tells us to have a great day.

WEEKLY GAME/SCORE REPORT
Field hockey lost 2-1 in double overtime against Ocean City in the regional final. It was the best game they have played the entire year and their coaches are so proud of them. Kylie Elwell had the lone goal off of a penalty stroke in the last quarter of the game sending us into overtime.
We finished in first place in the CAL North conference and have 5 first team all stars this year: Senior Kylie Elwell, Juniors Rebecca Macchia and Emily Gargan, Sophomoe Anna Smith, and Freshman Jenna Gray.
