East High Student Daily Announcements

East Student Announcements

Thursday, April 19, 2018


Good Morning Spartans!


WORD OF THE WEEK: Hello again, vocabulary virtuosos! It’s the penultimate day of the school week and I'm here today to remind you that the word of the week is SUPERFLUOUS, which is an adjective that means “being more than is sufficient or required; unnecessary.” Another way you could use the word is in the following sentence: “The teacher told us to write a 15-page essay, and that writing a 20-page essay would be superfluous.” Friday’s announcement will reveal other forms of the word.


PROM TICKETS: Prom tickets will be sold for $15.00 in the commons Monday through Friday! You may buy tickets during all three lunches, but you must have your obligations paid beforehand! Tickets will NOT be sold at the door the night of the event!


POST PROM: Post Prom Tickets are $12 and will be on sale Tuesday, April 17 – Friday, April 20 in the commons during all 3 lunch periods. Post Prom is at East in the Gym from 11:45 PM – 3:30 AM, with doors opening at 11:45 and no admittance after 12:30 AM. East students and guest must present ID’s and tickets to enter. No one 21 and over allowed to attend. The dress is casual, food and drinks are provided, and there are lots of fabulous prizes!


VOTER REGISTRATION: Will you be 18 years old on November 6, 2018? If so, register to vote at all three lunches this week in the commons. It only takes a few minutes, just be sure to bring your Driver's License.
