The following coach assisted for the JV basketball, Varsity basketball, and Women's soccer. He also stepped up and head coached a very successful boys’ soccer team last Fall. This year's assistant coach of the year goes to Drake Weatherspoon.
HEAD COACH OF THE YEAR
Our Head Coach of Coach this year goes to an individual who has quickly proven to connect with our athletes and finds a way to be a very positive motivator. He wrapped up his second season with the MS basketball team and is always willing to help out with any of the sports EWA offers. Scott Canipe is this year's Head Coach of the Year.
Congratulations to all our teams and winners this year! It has been a pleasure to watch our athletic program continue to progress and thrive throughout the 2019-2020 school year. Coach Eason would like to thank our Administration, Parents, Athletes, and Coaches for making our athletic program possible! We can't wait to get the season rolling this coming Fall!
Closing out the Year:
Students 9th-11th grade, please be sure to check your school email for an email from your teachers about final grades.
We will be working over the next few weeks to close out the school year. The teachers will be working on feedback and transitioning to planning for 2020-2021. We will be in touch soon with updates. Your teachers will be in contact with you with more classroom information and details for summer learning opportunities.
Hold the Date: June 3, 2020: We will do a school wide pickup day on June 3. The teachers will have any items that belong to your student bagged up and ready for pickup. We will share more details as the day gets closer. Please remember your carpool tag. If you have any school items (books – etc.), we will have drop boxes available that day. Library books too!
Technology: If you have a school Chromebook that you have been using during coronaED, we are allowing the family to use the Chromebook for the summer. This will enable you to access summer learning materials that teachers will be sharing.
Yearbooks: Yearbooks are in, and we will be distributing them on June 3. More information to come on extra yearbooks and their availability.
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!
