Citizens Advisory Council
The district is going to see some exciting changes with CAC this year. The group will no longer be preparing research projects for the Board and instead will become a focus group to gather feedback about the District. The CAC will meet 6 times this school year and there will be no outside work required. The district is hopeful this change will help encourage participation. If you believe that you'd be interested in representing EJHS on this council, please contact Mr. Chapman via email - email@example.com.

Eighth grade students in Ms. Dial's bilingual tutorial come in and work hard everyday to get their homework done. Integers, journal entries, and mousetrap catapult planning are just part of what these students have taken on so far.
