Typically the Purgolder Press is a preview of the upcoming week's events, but in light of the Safer At Home order, we thought it would be appropriate to use our weekly newsletter to honor the many student-athletes, performers, club members and generally talented East High scholars whose opportunities to shine have been cut short due to COVID-19.
National Honor Society Inductees
Being inducted to the National Honor Society is one of the highest honors bestowed upon students at East High School because of the breadth of criteria that must be met. These students have demonstrated excellence in four “pillar” areas identified by the National Honor Society: Scholarship, Character, Leadership and Service. Their dedication to academics, while being of service to school and community, are evident. Congratulations to the 2020 inductees!
Student Achievement Night
East High School is excited to showcase the academic and leadership talents that our students bring to East on a daily basis. We have compiled a list of award recipients for academic achievement and service, and from various community organizations and East High Academic Departments and Clubs. 
What We Post Online Matters
Here is a video message from East's Black Student Union (BSU) reminding everyone how important it is to treat each other with kindness and respect on social media as we navigate virtual learning.
