Welcome

Thank you to everyone who donated to the PSO!

Funds raised will be used to support the PSO 2018/19 grant program.  Already this year, we have helped fund the after-school tutoring programs, upcoming EWHS College Night, new library books and support for the counseling department.  Last year, we helped purchase new tools for the Robotics Club, a camera for the school newspaper and clothes for the student closet.  All funds raised are used to support EWHS students and staff.

Upcoming Practice SAT Tests at EWHS – registration open

SAT – November 17 – 9-12:45 at EWHS.  The full practice test is a great way for students to gain experience taking the test, determine which test is a better fit and get a sense of how they might perform on the official test.  The cost of the test is $20.  Fee waivers are available.  Registration is open to all students.  Practice Test Registration
