High Five: It's Friday! This week Messiah College came to meet with students interested in learning more about college life at Messiah. Check the East Juniata High School website to see what other colleges will be making visits this school year. Mrs. Cook's Psychology class had a little fun this week making candy neurons. They then had to label all its parts and once their work was completed and checked they indulged. YUM! Today was an ACT 80 day, which means no school for students. Teachers enjoyed a day full of department meetings, learning, and collaborating.

High Five: It's Friday! What an exciting time it is at EJHS! Students and staff are getting back into new routines. Fall sports teams are in full swing. Some of the seniors kicked off their last year with parking stahl painting and they turned out great. We had our first assembly this week with Nick "Sunshine" Tokman from The Deadliest Catch, the students seemed to enjoy his presentation. Today the FFA served a wonderful faculty breakfast and we finished the week with picture day. Everyone brought their smiles. If you missed picture day don't worry retakes will be held on October 27th.

Where in the World is Ms. Straub? Kentucky? South America?? New Mexico??? Ms. Straub actually spent her summer enjoying time with family and friends and the family dog, Millie. When Ms. Straub wasn’t working; she was enjoying weekend trips here and there. One weekend trip took place in Cross Forks, Potter County. While there she enjoyed the annual rattlesnake hunt. Although she did not hunt rattlesnakes, she did help educate children on snake safety and how to handle snakes. Ms. Straub admires the beautiful creatures and can be caught handling them. Another weekend trip included taking the drive south to visit her brother and his family. Ms. Straub loves spending time with her 21 month old nephew, Dominic. When not taking weekend trips, Ms. Straub was found attending the local dirt race tracks. She is normally the one behind the camera taking lots of pictures of the race cars. You can also find her working on a sprint car. Go #9! The summer showcases are winding down. Check back Friday for our last Where in the World!

Where in the World is Mrs. Wagner? Barbados? Louisiana?? Ireland??? Well not exactly! Mrs. Wagner has enjoyed many locations throughout the summer but none of these are correct. Mrs. Wagner is the proud mama of a set of twins, who just celebrated their first birthday this past July. So to say Mrs. Wagner was relaxing all summer would be a little far fetched but she enjoyed every minute spent with her husband and twins. This summer the Wagner family enjoyed a trip to Williamsburg, Virginia and also a trip to York, PA. Most of their summer was spent here in beautiful Juniata County. The twins, Ella and Tucker, learned to love lots of pool time, along with a lot of other firsts. Mrs. Wagner was also able to find time to help with the Extended School Year Program here at EJHS. These last couple weeks of summer Mrs. Wagner will soak up more pool time with her family before returning for the 2022/2023 school year. Check back Wednesday for more Where in the World!
