Ride Along with Us (or Don't)!  Be a Senior Send Off Chaperone

 

Join us on a super comfy bus and help chaperone our seniors during Senior Send Off!  We'd especially love a few DADs to join us!  SSO is Monday, June 18; buses leave directly from Key Arena immediately after the 8pm ceremony and return to EHS by 6am the following morning. 

If being with 50 excited seniors on a big ol' bus does NOT sound fun but you'd really like to help out, we need a few folks to come along with us in a separate vehicle; you would chaperone the event but not travel with the students.  

For more information or to volunteer, please contact our SSO team.

Please Volunteer for Baccalaureate

Baccalaureate is a non-denominational, spiritual event that celebrates the successes of our seniors and blesses them as they move on to the next phase of their young adult life.  Volunteers are critical for the success of this special event.  We need help with parking flow, ushers, stage hands, refreshments, photos, and more!

Take a look at our SignUpGenius and let us know where you can help!


Community Service Spotlight:
EHS Girls Basketball Team

Want a great idea for team bonding and sportsmanship while having a positive impact on our community?  Our EHS girls basketball team organized a shopping event and broke into smaller groups to buy gifts for families in need at the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank’s Holiday Gift Barn.  This event serves approximately 1,200 children in the Issaquah School District each year. 

In addition, the team raised funds to purchase needed supplies for Tent City Residents at the Mary Queen of Peace location.  They delivered several cases of water, ground coffee, batteries, soup and flashlights. 

Thank you to our EHS team for being a fantastic example of community service!
