The Communique for September is Here! East's Newsletter sponsored by the PTSA
German-American Partnership Program
East High School has partnered with Gymnasium Trittau, a public college prep school near Hamburg, Germany, to share each other's cultures through the periodic exchange of students. On September 27, there will be 20 students and two teachers visiting us for three weeks. We need homes for them and hope you will take one in. Their visit will include about one week of travelling so we need your extra bedroom for only two weeks. Please contact Ulrike Dannhauer or Frank Langheinrich here at the school for complete information. This leads to biographies and pictures of the German students. On our next visit to Germany the high school aged students of East High host families will have priority to go on our trip to Germany.
The East High Key Club is starting up for this year. We will have our own Key Club Polo shirts and will travel to the Olympic Park near Park City for our first activity. Key Club is open to every student in the school. The Key Club is one of 5000 Key Clubs in high schools around the country. It provides service, builds character and provides leadership opportunities and skills. Best of all, it provides networking with the college affiliates and leading business and community leaders through its Kiwanis sponsors. Join us on September 17 in room A201 to join and organize.
