Meet and Greet for graduates, parents, and special guests will take place beginning at 5 pm at the Sheraton Hotel on Friday, May 10th. Friends and family are invited to come down to the hotel to mingle with the graduates and take pictures before the Grand Procession begins at 6.

Unfortunately due to the excessive number of “Unexcused Lates”, we have no other choice but to assign detentions to students who have THREE unexcused lates. We have discussed this concern with numerous students and parents but alas the number of Lates have not diminished; as a matter of fact, they seem to have increased. Students will be subject to further disciplinary action for each subsequent late. Students arriving late to school and late to class are a constant and unnecessary disruption to our learning environment. Students who are driving vehicles and are late may have their parking privileges revoked and may not be permitted to park anywhere on school property. Student drivers are particularly problematic as they tend to have a carload of late arrivals early in the morning and coming back from dinner.
Each year during the Senior Prom, one student is chosen as a recipient for the Progressive Pioneer Award. “Awarded annually to the graduate who displayed progressive, ambitious and energetic qualities and in general made a worthwhile contribution to our school and its well being.” Download the Application / Nomination form.
Each year, the Foundation awards scholarships to students throughout the Eastern School District who have demonstrated academic excellence and outstanding leadership in their schools and their communities. Recently, we awarded 15 scholarships to deserving students throughout the district. In 2006, the Foundation also announced the annual Matthew R. Churchill Post Secondary Educational Scholarship for $1,000. We are now accepting applications for the 2013 Scholarships.
Applications must be received by 4:00 p.m., June 21, 2013.
The deadline for paying prom fees was April 30th. Some graduates have fees outstanding , and it is very important that these be paid in order to ensure attendance at the prom. Seating is now being finalized. If there is a problem with regards to fees, please email Ms. Verna Hancock, or Ms. Heather Kelly.

Students taking Workplace Safety 3220 should bring in their $50 fee for the First Aid course to the office as soon as possible. Only those students whose fees are paid in advance will be registered for the course. The course will go ahead in mid to late May.
All prom fees must be paid before April 30th. A group of 4 tickets costs $335.00 – each graduate pays $75+$35 for awards night, and then each additional ticket costs $75. At this point, there is no ticket availability for other family members beyond the original four tickets. A reminder that Graduates whose date is also a graduate are entitled to 3 tickets.
