The fourth marking period has begun and it will soon be time to start thinking about summer school. We will be offering summer school again this year. It will be held Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays through July, starting July 5th and ending July 28th. Parents will be contacted via letter if their student will benefit from summer school. Letters will be sent home sometime in the first two weeks of May.
High five: it’s Friday! And just like that we have our first full week of April in the books…… - This past Friday, Saturday and Sunday our students put on a wonderful musical performance, The Addams Family. Thank you to everyone who participated and helped to make this so successful. - Although we have had so much rain these past few days, it seems like weeks, our spring sports teams are off to a great start. The varsity baseball team is 2- 1, the softball team is 2-1, and the track team record is: boys 1-0 and girls are 0-1. Keep up the good work! -Report cards were sent home on Wednesday. We are now in the 4th marking period, summer is right around the corner. - This week was Assistant Principal Week. We showered Mr. Sliski with cake, candy and kind words. Mr. S., thank you for doing all you do and for being you!
High five: it’s Friday! - Miss Straub and Mrs. Sperlich are wrapping up Life Skills Training with 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students. Students learned about resisting peer pressure, making decisions, recognizing media influences, coping with anxiety, and communicating clearly, as well as how and why to say no to using substances such as alcohol, vaping, and other drugs. - On Thursday, we welcomed the students from EJES as they got to preview The Addams Family musical. On Friday, the EJHS students were also able to preview it. If you haven’t done so already, tickets are still available at the door. Performances will be Saturday at 7pm and Sunday at 2:30pm. You won’t want to miss it.
You're running out of time. Call or email to get your tickets. Shows will be held Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
High five: it’s Friday! It has been a relatively quiet week….. - Tuesday Mr. McLaughlin and his FFA officers welcomed the Secretary of Agriculture, Mr. Redding, for the Area Leadership Development Event. Emily K. Kerstetetter and Haley Hoffman both placed in Conservation. They will both advance to Regionals in Cumberland County sometime in April and will compete against roughly one third of the state. - Thursday Miss Straub traveled with a few students to SUNTech. The students were able to visit the different specialized areas in which they would see themselves studying while attending SUNTech next school year.
Summertime is right around the corner! Now is the time to start thinking about summer jobs. Anyone aged 14 or older is eligible, by law, to work. Remember: anyone under the age of 18 will need a workers’ permit. You can get this through the main office at your high school. A parent will need to accompany their student to the office to fill out an application. Parents will need to bring two forms of identification for their student.
High five: it’s Friday! What a beautiful day it is! Monday started with the ASVAB testing. All 10th grade students participated. Monday and Tuesday, Mr. McLauglin took a group of FFA students (Aleigh Bohn, Grace Hibbs, Haley Hoffman, Jack Hoffman, Emily K. Kerstetter) to the State Legislative Leadership Conference in Harrisburg. Today teachers and staff enjoyed a wonderful Wellness Day. It included things like mini manicures, hand dips, painting classes, Yoga and so much more. Macy Buskey, Grace Hibbs, Briar Jamison, Tate Jamison, Emily K. Kerstetter, Shyanne Pyle, Anna Shaffer and Kendahl Stroup enjoyed this beautiful Friday weather by traveling with Mr. McLaughlin to John Hershey’s farmers breakfast.

High five: it’s Friday! It was another busy week. Let’s recap…… This morning we started our day with a friendly basketball shooting competition in the gym. Students and faculty paid $1 to take 3 shots. If they made their shots, their name was entered into a drawing! The student winners were Briar Jamison, Jake Brackbill and Josh Dubeil. The faculty winner was Mrs. Steph Hackeberg. Last night, the boys basketball team competed in a great game against rival Juniata. EJ boys were successful and pulled out the win, which clinched the league title. It was so great to see our school come together with the singing of the National Anthem by the EJ chorus and all the school spirit throughout the gym. Let’s pack the house again tonight for the girls basketball team as they host rival Juniata! Please wear white to show your support. All proceeds from the last two days will be donated to teacher Mrs. Fryer. Mr. Todd Tabb finished up his first rotation for the Artist Residency Program this past Wednesday, and our students are looking forward to his return in March. Congratulations to our students who competed at district band and chorus the past two Fridays. We are very proud of their hard work!
