BACK TO SCHOOL SHOPPING?
Set EWHS PSO as your charity in Amazon Smile and every time you shop, Amazon donates a portion of the proceeds to our programs. This is the easiest way to help raise critical funds that benefit our students and staff. Make the change before you shop online and we can award even more grants to our educators this year.
Our 2020 holiday fundraiser raised $4,300 to help provide food and clothing for EWHS students and their families. Thank you to everyone who helped fight food insecurity for our fellow Warriors.
