Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!

We are back! It has been a very busy and successful opening of school. We welcomed the class of 2020 this year and they are a wonderful group of young men and women. I have been so impressed with how thoughtful, respectful and kind they are. They are a great addition to an already solid group of students.

The sports programs are well underway with students all over the campus after school representing EWG in Tennis, Volleyball, Football, Cross Country and Soccer. We also have a great cheer leading group that is supporting our teams as well. Beyond athletics, we have a host of activities going on too. For example, drama, chess club, music and art programs to name a few.

We are so excited to be forming a chapter of best buddies at EWG this year under the guidance of Mrs. Regan and Mrs. Blake. Best Buddies is an " International  nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD)". I am sure you will be hearing more great things about best buddies in the future. 

Below is a picture of Mrs. Wixted's classroom this week in the midst of a fierce math scrabble showdown. Mrs. Wixted is always looking for ways to engage her students and help them review challenging content.

Remember to keep up on upcoming events on twitter as well at @ewghigh. 

Parent conferences are October 20 - 21. More will come in the future. 
September 22 is an early release day. We will be releasing students at 11:37. They will have lunch before release. 

Have a wonderful weekend!!
