It has been a busy week at Everest Collegiate High School & Academy. Here are some of the top moments of our first week:
1.) EC new student and freshmen orientation took place on Friday, August 17. Students learned school procedures, got to know one another, participated in a scavenger hunt, and enjoyed a pizza lunch. We welcome our largest freshmen class to date to EC this fall.
2.) The first day of school for our EC students was Monday, August 20. Students finished the day with an assembly and picnic out on the hill.
3.) Our new faculty and staff are a great addition to the Everest community. Don’t miss the opportunity to meet them at Back-to-School night and Meet the Faculty.
4.) Our academy students returned to class on Tuesday, August 21.
5.) We can’t thank our homeroom moms enough for what they do for our classroom teachers. They kicked off the year with a meeting on Thursday, August 23.
6.) Our preschoolers are so excited to be Mountaineers! After a Meet & Greet on Tuesday, their first day of class was Wednesday, August 22.
7.) Academy sports began formally this week with practices.
8.) After a few weeks of practice, EC athletes faced off in their first contests this week. EC soccer and EC volleyball both picked up wins. EC football and EC cross country will kick off their seasons over the weekend. All families are invited to the football season opener on Friday night!
9.) The Mountaineer family is growing. We welcomed 31 new families to Everest this year!
10.) Our first week back will end Friday with opening Masses for both our academy and high school students.
