Ms. Rosiey:

Eleanor Roosevelt quoteHello, Families and Learners!

I cannot believe these are the last couple weeks of this school year. What a year! We are so very grateful that we were part of your learner’s education and growth this year. Here are some updates for this week:

  • Re-registration is out. We need any updated information and forms for next school year. You will receive an email notification, and it will take you to the Reg-Online portal.
  • Over summer break, I will be available to meet with families and support registration.
  • The last day of this school year is June 16.
  • Summer school will be July 3-28.
  • Graduation is June 13. Congratulations, graduating seniors!

Mr. Twigg:

It’s the last week of school! Congratulations, everyone, on the work you did this semester and making it through! I hope you all have a great summer!!

Ms. Marian: Guide:

Oh, Mylanta! It’s almost summer break. Woohoo!

This is not the time to throw in the towel. This is the time to kick it into high gear and turn in whatever you can. Please reach out to me this week, or answer when I reach out to you. I will be working down to the wire to help you complete classes! I am on Zoom, but I can still help. If you normally attend on campus but find yourself working from home one day, check in with me.

Let’s go, Empower learners! I believe in you.

I am working with many learners who either learn from home full-time or are learning from home some days.I am here to help you. My Zoom meeting ID is 882 9053 3901 and the pass code is MsTC. Come get help, and get work submitted with me. There’s no need to be lost or confused. I am here every day to work with you. Remember that completed school work equals attendance. Just being at school does not equal attendance. Showing up equals understanding and knowledge.

Mr. Brian:

We have several awareness causes to highlight in June. This is LGBTQIA Pride Month, PTSD Awareness Month, Gun Violence Awareness Month, Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month, and Immigrant Heritage Month.

This week I want to focus on PTSD awareness. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a disorder that develops in some people who have experienced a shocking, scary, or dangerous event. People with PTSD may have intense, disturbing thoughts and feelings related to their experience that last long after the traumatic event has ended. “Fight or flight” helps people who may suffer from PTSD avoid or respond to potential danger. For most people, these symptoms go away on their own within the first few weeks and months after the trauma. However, if they do not, please do not hesitate to reach out for help from a mental health professional.

Ms. Tanya:

Join us for the EG Village Potluck on June 14 starting at 11 AM.

“Food culture is the connections, beliefs, and experiences a person has with food and the systems that involve food.”

Food is one of the ways culture is carried on through generations. Every family has a recipe or two that they cherish. Family recipes are certain foods that remind us of warm feelings and happy memories with the ones we love. These can be foods our family always makes for celebrations and events and, more often, foods we enjoy eating together all the time. Some family recipes have been passed down for so many generations that we aren’t even sure where they originated. Other family recipes are in their infancy. These are recipes that you try for the first time and they stick.

What is your family’s favorite entrée, appetizer, dessert, or side dish? Let’s celebrate the end of the school year with an EG Family Potluck! Let us share in the food culture of our school community.

Please sign up here and let us know what yummy dish you will be bringing to share!

Ms. Jeanette: Guide:

Welcome to the last week of the school year! In order to celebrate your perseverance and grit, I have two upcoming opportunities.

  • First, any learner who completed and passed the Plant the Moon project will receive a physical patch to remember their success. The patch can be sewn onto jackets, backpacks, blankets, etc. Way to see your project through until the end!
  • Second, we will be having a Mario Kart tournament on Wednesday afternoon. This tournament will be after the potluck, so be sure to wash your hands!

I can’t wait to celebrate with you!

Mr. Troy: Care Team:

Summer break is almost here. Only a few weeks left. If you’re looking for things to do over the summer, consider Marie Kerr Park. They have tons of free activities!

Ms. Dani: CTE Guide:
