Principal Michael Podraza’s Weekly EGHS Update
A weekly newsletter with information about upcoming events related to East Greenwich High School
Week of 5-15-2017

Senior Assembly and School Wide Health Fair Wednesday
During Advisory on Wednesday 5-17 EGHS will continue to lead up to Prom/Graduation/Celebration season by having members of the Senior Class hear from Dr. Fred Procopio, Head of URI Health Services. Additionally, we will once again hold a health fair for all students during all three lunches.
Thanks to CWC and Mr. Houghtaling
Special thanks go out to all members of Citizens Who Care (CWC) and Mr. Houghtaling for bringing in Mr. Chris Herren to speak to our Juniors and Seniors last week. This was Mr. Herren’s third time to EGHS, and each time he visits us his powerful messages impacts so many of our students, and this time was no different. If you are the parent of a junior or senior I urge you to discuss the presentation with your child and see what part of the assembly resonated with them.

Early dismissal forms and guest permission slips are due to the main office by the close of school on Wednesday.
