End of year

The Class of 2018 waited patiently on June 9 at the Ryan Center to receive their diplomas.

 2018 Graduate Erin Stewart's honors. Erin was an  All State Athlete from a Division I EWG team. Her scores were used on every event she competed since freshman year

 We are already missing the class of 2018 as they provided such great leadership to all our students. Best wishes Class of 2018!

On Friday, 6/15, our friend Alex Smith from Horace Mann helped to surprise this semester's two attendance award recipients with new Kindle Fires. Horace Mann has become and outstanding business partner that supports educational initiatives and anything student related. Our winners were: Omobolaji Olawuyi and Michelina Smith. Congrats for being this semester's attendance raffle winner.

Representative students and coach from our Girl's Softball team received the sportsmanship award from the state umpires. Way to go girls!

EWG Sophomore Hannah Rae has been accepted to the All-National Honors Orchestra, hosted by the National Association for Music Education in November 2018.  Hannah was accepted on French Horn after auditioning with students from all 50 US States and Puerto Rico.  This is a MAJOR honor for Hannah - Congratulations!

Thank you to the families of EWG for a wonderful 2017-2018 school year. Have a great summer!!

Come see the next great production of the Senior High Drama Program
Can I have the definition? Join an eclectic group of six mid-pubescents as they vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. A riotous ride, complete with audience participation! Three audience members at each performance will have their chance in the spotlight spelling alongside our cast. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius. Come join in the fun! 
April 27th, 28th at 7pm April 29th at 2pm
