Seniors, It’s time to celebrate your future direction decisions. You spent the majority of your senior year trying to decide what your future holds and where you would like to be next year. All seniors who have made the decision to further their education by attending college, technical or trade school, art or nursing school, or who have enlisted in any branch of the armed services, are invited to show EHS where you will be continuing your schooling next year.
Check out the bulletin board outside of the Counseling Office. If you don’t see your picture there, you can email your counselor, send them a Schoology message, or stop by the Counseling Office to drop your counselor a note about where you are headed next year (college or military). Your picture will be posted on the bulletin board outside of the counseling office for everyone to see! Don’t delay!

Tariffs on affected Chinese goods have risen to 25% from 10%, and Beijing has vowed to retaliate. China says it “deeply regrets” the move and will have to take “necessary counter-measures.” It comes as high-level officials from both sides are attempting to salvage a trade deal in Washington.
