One week away from Thanksgiving break and I realize we have so much to be thankful for at EWG. We have such amazing students that never cease to amaze me at every turn. One exciting and amazing event we have had recently was having Senior, Jenna Bridges sign her national letter of intent for University of Hartford on her last night playing Volleyball in our Gym. We are so proud of Jenna and all our senior athletes.

 I am also thankful for the hard work of our teachers. I recently popped into the classroom of one of our English teachers that had her class engrossed in the book, Of Mice and Men.  Mrs. Brennan was so skilled in helping her students master the art of close reading. Close reading requires the student to get deeply involved with the text they are reading. It requires the students to notice features and language used by the author. Mrs. Brennan was modeling for her students and they were responding.
Having students complete high school is a major accomplishment and one that our school community and families are so thankful for. One of our students, Marshal M. recently completed his requirements and received his diploma to the smiles of his Mom, teachers and of course Marshal. Congrats to him and his family. 
Upcoming events:
   WEDNESDAY, November 25, our Football Team will play East Greenwich at East Greenwich in the Thanksgiving Game. It is at 6PM under the lights. Hope to see you all there! The boys always play hard and look forward to the support.


I wish you all a relaxing and restful Thanksgiving. Enjoy your families and friends.

As usual, the past couple of weeks have been busy for our students at the Senior High School. The end of the month concluded with a very successful "Pink Out" to support Breast Cancer organizations. As you can see by the pictures, even the staff joined right in to support the effort!! Thanks to the work of our student council, close to $300.00 was raised.

One of the highlights of the past couple of weeks was the work done in one of our Transitions classes to prepare our students for the world of work. The students trained long and hard to master interviewing skills. When they were ready, our Director of Administration, Mr. Bob Ross, took time out of his very busy day to interview all the students on camera! Students will view the video's and receive feedback on how to improve their skills. It was very impressive to see the work that was put into such a realistic and relevant activity.
