    Good Afternoon Eagle Families, 


    This is Dan Schmittdiel, Principal of East Lake High School, with some updates for the upcoming week. It’s hard to believe we are only 7 weeks away from our graduation ceremony for the ELHS class of 2023 and 8 weeks away from the end of the 2022-23 school year for freshman, sophomores, and juniors! As a reminder, quarter 4 is a busy one, starting with some upcoming testing as soon as April 5th – let’s make quarter 4 our best yet and continue to strive for greatness each and every day! Let’s continue to show our school spirit and cheer on our different spring sports teams, clubs, and performing arts programs – we have multiple events this week which we hope everyone can attend, including our Lacrosse Senior Night and the Ignite Invitational. As always, good luck to all our students, coaches, and sponsors!


    Quarter 3 Grades

    As a reminder, grades were finalized for quarter 3 this past Friday. Please remember course grades are calculated using quarter 3 and quarter 4 grades, along with calculating in the class final exam for most courses. Ensure that your student is utilizing the resources available from their teacher in and out of the classroom to finish the year strong!


    Student Laptops for Testing

    Attention freshman and sophomore families and students: as a reminder, all students should be bringing their school issued laptops to school charged and ready to go each and every day. This is especially important for all freshman and sophomores as we approach all of the extremely important required testing opportunities your students have ahead of them, beginning with a writing assessment on April 5th and upcoming FAST Progress Monitoring 3. Students will be testing on their laptops, and they will be ensuring they’re prepared for testing in their different classes in the next week. Please ensure that they bring their laptop charged each and every day. If they still don’t have a school issued laptop assigned to them, please have them stop by Student Services.


    Student Service Program (sophomore opportunity)

    Attention sophomores: are you looking for an opportunity to grow your leadership skills, volunteerism, philanthropy, and civic responsibility? The Ryan Nece Foundation has a free opportunity in their Student Service Program. It’s a two year program during their junior and senior year that centers around serving their community. The application window closes on March 31, 2023, so apply today!


    Staff Kudos

    Let’s take a moment to highlight the amazing things that our ELHS staff do each and every day to ensure your students not only find success but have an amazing high school experience. Take a moment to complete the short “2022-23 Q4: East Lake High School Staff Kudos” Microsoft Forms survey for a quick shoutout to an ELHS staff member: 

    If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your Assistant Principal or Counselor. Have an amazing rest of your weekend, stay safe, and GO EAGLES!
