    We have limited quantities of t-shirts available. Please contact the school treasurer if you'd like to purchase one (


    We had many of you your freshman year and in some ways it was our freshman year as well. We're celebrating our fourth year at EHS at the same time you're graduating. During those years, we've seen all of you grow from little, immature Freshman to mature, courageous, and dedicated Seniors and young adults.

    Through it all it's important to keep a sense of perspective. No one could've predicted this is how your four years of high school would end. But life should be viewed as more about the journey than the end result. We've been fortunate to be able to share this journey with many of you. Whether it's in a math or science class, or class council, we're both better teachers because of the experiences we've had with all of you and the relationships we've been able to build.

    Being the Class of 2020 sponsors has been filled with joy, headaches, laughter, tears, and a whole bunch of other emotions. We hope we've been able to provide all of you with some unique experiences and small joys as you made your way through high school. We want to thank all of those that made a contribution to class council and want to thank everyone for putting up with us.

    Today we celebrate the Class of 2020 and everything all of you have accomplished. Finishing high school is a milestone and a stepping stone. We know all of you have it within yourselves to achieve greatness. Take all of the lessons you've learned so far and always keep looking forward. We look forward to hearing the great things all of you will be doing in the future.


    All the best,
    Brittney and Tim
