Egg Harbor Township High School

Week of January 2, 2022

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL

Greetings!


Happy New Year to all. What a way to start the year with snow days. As you may know when we are off due to snow days the days need to be made up and are added to the end of the year. Currently our last day of school will be June 24, 2022. Let’s hope Mother Nature’s wrath doesn’t add to that date!


As we returned to school we remind our staff, students and guests that the executive order is still in place for mask mandates in public schools. We will continue to social distance and wash hands frequently to hopefully prevent the spread of not only covid but all winter illnesses.


Temperatures have really spiked and once again we remind staff and students to dress for the winter weather. Stay warm at the bus stops.


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. More info to come….

  • 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.

  • Please see below where there is a schedule of dates for our fine and performing arts department, Specifically for January 13 and 20.


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: Sharon Buritica Usaga

Nominated by: Ryan Menz

I am not sure if this is specifically cheerful or uplifting, but Sharon spent the entire block today helping another student who was struggling to understand the work. She helped translate the worksheet and helped with the math content even though she could have been done already and completed other work or had free time. I think that she helped to give the other student some confidence in math.


Nominee: Ethan Hubbs

Nominated by: Michael Dannenhauer

Ethan always says thank you, goodbye and to have a nice day at the end of my class. He always puts a smile on my face - for doing such a kind and thoughtful gesture. Thanks Ethan!

Student Assistance Program and Resources

Don't Get Vaped In!

Big picture

The sophomore class has just finished receiving a presentation entitled, “Don’t Get Vaped In” by Atlantic Prevention Resources. The presentations took place throughout the month of December in small student groups during health and physical education classes, regarding what has become an epidemic among our middle and high school students. According to most recent data from CDC and the FDA’s National Youth Tobacco Survey, the percentage of high school children reporting past 30-day vaping rose by more than 75% between 2017 and 2018.

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! 😊
