Senior Academy Announcements

September 16, 2020

Good Morning Senior Academy!

STUDENTS STAY UPDATED:

SENIORS:

NCDPI has a partnership with military recruitment and asks us to share our list of seniors with local recruiters due to the partnership.  If you wish to "opt- out" and for your students information not to be shared, please email snaftel@eastwakeacademy.org no later than September 22, 2020.   


Hi EWA Seniors and Families,

Mrs. Jill Massey sent to students but wanted Parents to know you have to order a Cap, Gown and EWA 2021 Stole for graduation from Jostens.  You have the option to purchase announcements, etc. but not required.  You cannot use someone else's cap and gown from previous years.  If you choose to not purchase a cap, gown and stole, you will not be able to walk for graduation.  I will have NHS stoles (property of EWA), NHS cords, and NHS tassels along with Honor cords.  Please reach out to Mrs. Campbell at kcampbell@eastwakeacademy.org if you have any questions.     

Eagles- It is time to order your Graduation Products and Cap & Gown!  Although the start of your Senior Year at East Wake Academy looks a little different, we are here to help you celebrate, announce and participate in your ceremony. Your high school graduation is a huge milestone deserving of a celebration!

Since ordering in school is not a possibility this fall, we will be taking orders online and by mail. We will be shipping all Senior apparel and keepsake items to your home. Your custom engraved graduation announcement products as well as your cap & gown will be delivered at school in the Spring. Order now to get your Senior Year started in style! 

Check out the link https://www.jostens.com/apps/store/customer/1221999/East-Wake-Academy/ to take you directly to your order page on the Jostens site.  Use the Contact button to email any questions or ask for additional assistance.

Congratulations, Senior!

Please order no later than October 15 to take advantage of your school's Group Pricing!


JUNIORS:

Hi EWA Juniors and Families,

One of the best parts of becoming an upperclassman is earning the right to order your official East Wake Academy Class Ring. You are taking on leadership roles and beginning to form the graduating class of 2022. While we know this fall is a little different, we do not want you to miss out on this time honored tradition. 

Select the link https://www.jostens.com/apps/store/productBrowse/1221999/East-Wake-Academy/Class-Jewelry/2006071011045564036/CATALOG_JRD/  to take you to the Jostens ring designer to create your customized class jewelry. Don’t know your size? No problem. Use the sizing guide on the website or place your order entering “size unknown” and Jostens will mail you a sizing kit. 

Place your order on line by the October 15th deadline and receive a special gift from your Jostens Team - a custom EWA Adidas Striker II Back Pack!

Please order by 10/15/20 to qualify for your free EWA Adidas Backpack.  Go, Eagles!

National Hispanic Heritage Month

Today’s quote comes from the hispanic artist Frida Kahlo - who is best known for her self-portraits and depictions of mexican culture and society through her art. Frida once said:

“Al final del día, nosotros podemos soportar mucho más de lo que pensamos que podemos” -Frida Kahlo

“At the end of the day, we can endure much more than what we think we can.” -Frida Kahlo
