Senior Academy Announcements

April 17, 2020

Good Morning Senior Academy Families! Hope your week has gone well.


Senior Academy Department News:

4th Quarter Expectations: Students, remember to keep checking your EWA email this week for EWA’s eLearning support.

Please contact your teacher if there are questions concerning your eLearning experience. Teachers and staff are here to patiently support our students and families throughout this challenging time. 


Counselor’s Corner: - Notes from Mrs. Naftel…

As we wrap up the second week of virtual learning, my continued hope for you and your family is that you are giving yourself grace and time to adjust.  We will all make mistakes during this time and it's ok to make mistakes! We are all seeing changes on a daily basis, and if a need arises, please communicate with me or any EWA staff member so you and your family can be connected with resources to help you during this challenging time.  You are not in this alone - we are here to help! 

Good news!!I have been granted the green light to start adjusting schedules and will be releasing schedules on these dates: 

          Rising 12th grade, students with 504s, and students with IEPs: week of April 13

          Rising 11th grade: week of April 20th

          Rising 10th grade: week of April 27th

          Rising 9th grade: week of May 4

Students who are registering for CCP- once you have been granted access to do so, please email me at your earliest convenience so I can tell you which blocks can be dedicated to College & Career Promise classes.  

Students will receive an email (in their EWA gmail account) that their schedule is available.  Students then have the choice to either make a virtual appointment (phone conference or video conference through Google Meet) to see and discuss their schedule or they can simply email me for a copy of their schedule.  (link to virtual meeting will be sent to student in a separate email)

Students can make an appointment by clicking on this link:


Students Stay updated:

Seniors, if you have been accepted to a College or University please forward your great news to Mrs. Ray.

Seniors: We know there are many questions concerning 4thquarter academics, prom, graduation etc. Please see the email that went out last Wednesday, discussing several of these items. If you had problems receiving the email or did not receive the email, please let Mrs. Ray know. If you have any questions concerning the information, please direct them to Mr. Johnson.


EWA News:

Spring Picture Orders: Student’s code and directions on how to order your student’s Spring Picture’s online was sent out this past Tuesday. If you did not receive your HS student’s code please contact Mrs. Ray.

Celebrate:  We hope you saw our teachers on Twitter, Facebook and our APP reaching out and saying they missed our students.  We then reached out to celebrate our Seniors and we still need your photos to post for our Senior Class of 2020!

We need your help to Celebrate Our Local Superheroes!  This week we would like to show our appreciation of all the SUPERHEROES in our EWA community!  If you are an essential worker or know of one connected to our EWA family or in our local community- PLEASE tag them and let us know!  We would LOVE to see a picture of them in uniform or at work.  We truly appreciate all of those on the frontlines as we all work together to get through the COVID-19 pandemic.  If you follow us on Facebook, please comment on this post and give a SHOUTOUT to all the Superheroes in our community-feel free to mention them by name!  If you follow us on twitter please tweet @eastwakeacademy and show us pics of your local Superhero.  #weB4meEWA #weareallinthistogether 

School Office Hours – Our school buildings are closed for students and the public, but school is still operating.  The main office will be manned Tuesday – Thursday from 9:00 – noon.  The best way to contact the school or admin is by email. We are also working in the building and remotely all week!

Reminder Families: APP and Website – If you have not downloaded the school APP, please do.  The APP is EWA in the palm of your hand.  Live Feed and News links are two great resources.  Take a look at all the messages from our teachers!  Also, from the staff list, you can email the teacher directly.


Your support and encouragement are imperative to the success of this new normal. Thank you so much for your patience and help as we continue to navigate this new territory.
