DESSA Self Assessment
Just like this past Fall, EHS will be gathering some information about how everyone is doing when it comes to social/emotional skills. You can take the DESSA anytime in the month of May and early June. There are instructions for creating an account or logging into the assessment in the shared slides. The assessment takes about 10-15 minutes to complete. Click here - EHS DESSA Student Guide
We hope to see everyone at this year's Junior-Senior Prom. The following details are provided in advance of the event.
Junior/Senior Prom 2022 will be held at the rink.
Doors will open at 7:45 pm to avoid a long wait at the check-in table. Those who arrive after 9 pm will not be admitted.
There is a no-readmittance policy. If you leave the event you may not reenter.
Prom officially begins at 8:00 pm. The first half-hour of the prom can be used to familiarize yourself with the food trucks, photo booth, and the general layout of the event space. This is a great time to get something to eat or take pictures with your friends!
EHS students attended Youth Lobby Rally for the Planet
The goal of the Youth Rally was to bring students together with their local representatives to discuss political issues that matter most to them. Essex High School students met with Essex legislators Lori Houghton, Rey Garofano, Alyssa Black, Tanya Vyhovsky, and Karen Dolan. The focus of this year’s rally is Vermont Youth’s Futures, specifically climate justice and green jobs.
Students marched in a parade through the streets of Montpelier to demonstrate their collective desire for greater action on climate change.
Students listened to speakers, visited informational booths to deepen their understanding of the issue, and participated in a Green Jobs Fair to learn more about different environmentally-friendly career paths within Vermont.
