Community Service Fair
EHS Hosts Service Fair December 13, 10:30am - 12:30pm
During all 3 lunches in the Upper Gym

EHS students interested in volunteering in the
community are invited to attend!

Over 25 local agencies are eager to enlist high school volunteers to
help meet community needs. Find new ways to solve an
issue you care about and earn your letter in Community Service.
 
Some examples of agencies attending the Service Fair are:

  • Presbyterian Homes - bring joy to residents by helping with I.T. questions, reading to a resident, or to sharing your talents, such as singing or playing an instrument.
  • Innercity Tennis - use your tennis skills to help out with their Super Saturdays tennis activities.
  • GiGi’s Playhouse - engage with children with Down Syndrome.
  • Highland Hills Ski and Snowboard - bring the joys of skiing and snowboarding to deaf and hard of hearing students.

Check out ways to impact the environment, care for kids, or address hunger in our backyard. For more information, contact Julierogers.bascom@edinaschools.org
Whigrean Senior Baby Ads
Deadline Extended
Whigrean staff and adviser have decided to extend the baby/toddler ad sale in order to accommodate parents still requesting ads.
The jostensadservice.com for baby/toddler ads will
END on DECEMBER 14th.
If you are in the process of creating a baby/toddler ad
or would still like to submit one, now is the time do that. 
This is a one-time, limited extension. 
Also, there is currently a very limited amount of space in the yearbook, so ad placement will also be first come, first served. What this means is that we may need to decline an ad, if we exceed the amount of space in the book for these.  Hurry! Don’t delay!
The Buddy Ad option for ads will begin on January 1st at jostensadservice.com .

See the EHS Whigrean website for more information about Buddy Ads. 
We also have fairly limited space for Buddy Ads. 
Buddy Ads give EHS Seniors the opportunity to recognize their friends and special events throughout their life in the yearbook. Ads come in a variety of sizes to meet different budgets and requirements.
