Some Serious SurveyMonkey (and Coffee Mug) Business

Does the word "survey" make you NOT want to read the rest of this article?  Yeah, we thought so.  Really, we get it!

So, we came up with a super fast one that does this:

  • takes less than 5 minutes (c'mon, we dare ya, it's a whopping 7 questions)
  • helps the PTSA plan for next year (because this year is swiftly coming to an end)
  • gives you a chance to win an Eastlake Wolves insulated mug (the camping equivalent of a wine glass!)

In all seriousness, your input is very important to us; otherwise, we wouldn't even bother!  So, thank you in advance for taking a few minutes for the EHS PTSA.  Yes, you can take the survey and remain anonymous, but you'll just miss out on that mug!  Click here to begin!

April Community Service Spotlight ~ EHS Dance Team

Between exhausting rehearsals, studying, performing, and winning STATE, the EHS Dance team somehow manages to also prioritize service and does so in a variety of ways.  This year, dance team members coordinated a group service project at Eastside Baby Corner (EBC), creating packets with baby formula, diapers, warm clothing, and other basic needs.  (EBC welcomes high school students, and 1½-hour shifts are available almost every day!  Click here to sign up.)  Thank you, EHS Dance Team, for your great examples of “performing” service! 

Know of other EHS teams that serve?  Email us and let us know! 

Thank You EHS Dance Team Members!
and CONGRATULATIONS on state!
