The EHS Hornet Ambassadors organization is now accepting applications. The Hornet Ambassadors play a large part in familiarizing the EHS community with our building, as well as helping new students adjust to life at the high school. The Hornet Ambassadors give tours to our soon-to-be freshmen and new students, help direct parents on parent nights, guidance information nights and other functions where assistance is needed. If you like to help people, want to get involved in our school and community and give tours of our high school, involvement in the Hornet Ambassadors would be a great opportunity. If you are interested in becoming a Hornet Ambassador, pick up an application from Mrs. Molnar in the Learning Lab. Applications are currently being accepted for sophomores and juniors. Applications for freshmen will be accepted in spring. The fall application deadline is Sept. 22.
