The1st semester is coming to an end and the next one is about to begin. I can’t thank the students and staff enough for their part in such a smooth and successful 1st half. Semester exams will begin this coming Wednesday and go through Friday. The following week we will begin the 2nd semester with "Benchmarks" for the upcoming TAKS tests. This will let us and the students know where each stands as far as being prepared for the TAKS exam. This information will be used to modify curriculum, identify tutorial needs, and determine rosters for FLEX days.
As we all know this next semester will be fast and furious, but we have a lot to look forward. Ag/FFA never stops. In sports, we have district play in soccer and basketball, and the seasons will begin shortly in powerlifting, track, golf, baseball and softball. In the academic and fine arts area, we have UIL academics and OAP, solo and esemble, concert and sight reading, the TAKS exam, just to mention a few, and of course, GRADUATION! The seniors are excited about getting to graduate in the new competition gym that’s under construction at this time. Dr. Holcombe assures us the gym will be ready.
Come be a part and support the great students and programs at EHS.
