PTSA Grants at work

The EHS Library would like to thank the PTSA for grants to diversify the library collection.

For May we are honoring Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage month with a variety of books by AAPI authors.

The choices that students now have to read are a lot more plentiful and meaningful than ever before because of the grants we received to purchase new books by AAPI authors.

 


Last chance: Spring Community Service Award List

Submit by Saturday, May 19, 2022.

Students who would like to be included in our Spring 2022 Community Service Award List and seniors who would like to receive the Community Service Honor Cord for graduation need to turn in all hours by May 19

Students from all grade levels can be included on the Award List if they have documented at least 50 hours.  Inclusion on this list can be listed as an award on job, college, scholarship, and other applications.  Due to Covid restrictions seniors will require only 150 hours to earn the Honor Cord instead of the usual 200. However, students submitting 200 or more hours will still earn a spot on the top 200+ hour award list. 

Students can enter their hours here. Check the EHS community services webpage for more information. Questions?  Email our Community Service Chair here.

Youth Eastside Services

EHS Community--Would you like support with the challenges of heading back to school, vaping, family conflicts, substance use, stress or are you worried about a family member or friend’s drug/alcohol/vape use? If you want help and can benefit from brief drop-in counseling or consultation, you can easily connect with our Youth Eastside Services (YES) Counselor, Andrea Frost. Just use her virtual drop-in office hours on Zoom on Tuesdays or Wednesdays starting September 7th/8th. She is our Substance Abuse Prevention Intervention Specialist (PI) and is here to support you. In person office hours are to be determined at this time.

Information on how to reach Andrea can be found here and this is a short video introduction.

Community Service

Spotlight

EHS PTSA is delighted to include EHS Freshman, Simran Kashyap, in our Community Service Spotlight. Simran has always been interested in helping people. Her mom has been her role model as she too has served the community through her own volunteer work. Growing up, Simran often accompanied her mom to assist with sorting and packing food to be distributed to homeless shelters. As she got older, she sought out ways to get involved on her own.  

Last summer, Simran began looking into areas where she could make an impact. With COVID restrictions in place, many in-person volunteer opportunities were not available. She found two places that offered interesting remote options. As a volunteer with Services for the Blind, Simran transcribes novels and books for young children before they are translated into Braille. She also volunteers with Providence ElderPlace to assist with various activities planned for senior citizens who reside at their facilities. Simran is able to volunteer remotely by decorating birthday cards and writing thoughtful notes that she mails to Providence residents. She was also assigned an ElderPlace resident “phone-friend” with whom she can connect regularly.  

Simran explains that, “just by volunteering some time, I could make someone’s life a little easier and bring a little cheer into their lives. I always look forward to making a difference, even if it’s something at a smaller scale.” Thank you, Simran, for making a difference in our community!
