Here is some information on our honor societies. I wanted to make sure all of our students and families received this information, especially our online learners:
Rho Kappa is doing everything on-line and virtually however we are up and running. We are holding meetings through zoom monthly as well as planning and executing various activities (again virtually).

East Lake High School's chapter of Tri-M Music Honor Society has proudly excelled in the areas of service, academics, musicianship, and membership growth. Through our concerts, fundraising, and social activities, members often find lifetime friendships and valuable connections for the future. Throughout the year, we complete service hours at the local middle schools and recruit students for our music programs. Members are selected based on weighted GPA and involvement in music classes.
