Class of 2020

The 2019/2020 academic year has certainly ended far differently then any of us could have imagined. For our graduating seniors, the closure of campus and the need for social distancing has meant the cancellation or postponement of many milestone events.  As a result we wanted to do something a little different to honor this year's graduates and to allow everyone in the EA Community to share in the celebration.

All week we have been celebrating our seniors with tribute videos, social media posts, and even signs on campus. If you missed any of these please visit the Class of 2020 page on our website. You will also find the senior spotlights and senior speeches we have been posting on social media all spring.

As the school year draws to a close we will be saying goodbye to Carolyn Dunoon, Heather Giebel, Ivonne Hopkins, Julie Janik, Sara Ryan, and Elizabeth Sala  as they seek new opportunities and move beyond the Hilltop. We will certainly miss them all and wish them well in their future endeavors.

In the midst of this crisis when we cannot say goodbye in person, we encourage you to please take a moment to send your well wishes to our faculty leaving at the end of this school year. Your personal notes submitted on our website will be sent directly to the teacher in the form of an e-card. Thank you.
