Tri-M Celebrates Music in our Schools Month

Posted: April 8, 2014

The National Association for Music Educators has labeled March as Music in Our Schools Month. To celebrate this special month, the Tri-M students at Edwardsville High School performed a flash mob on Friday, March 28th in the EHS Commons, much to the surprise of students and staff. The group had only a handful of large rehearsals before putting it up in front of the whole school.

“The students have wanted to bring the flash mob back for a long time and this seemed to be a year that really worked out well for us,” Mr. Havis said. “There was a lot of enthusiasm from Tri-M when the EBoard announced that we were going to do it again this year.” The flash mob, who danced to Beyoncé’s End of Time, was choreographed and taught mostly by Mr. Havis. “I pulled the choreography from a lot of different places, including Beyoncé’s live performances.”

In conjunction with Music in Our Schools Month, Tri-M also hosted a table during the lunch periods where students had the opportunity to come learn more about the music program at EHS; they even had the chance answer simple music questions to be entered into a drawing for a gift card and other prizes. In the end, Andrew Tojo won the $50 gift card to QuickTrip and Ashley Benson won a year’s supply of Custard from Culver’s. A big thank you to Culver’s for donating the ice cream and thanks to all who
participated! We will see you next year for Music in Our Schools Month

Interact Club Writes Letter of Hope

Posted: April 2, 2014

The EHS Interact Club hosted the third annual
Letters of Hope event on Friday, March 28th in the Commons during 6th hour. Students were invited to participate in the worthwhile cause while raising proceeds for the Gift of Life program through the African Vision of Hope organization. The Gift of Life program grants funding to children of third world countries in need of life saving surgeries.

During the event, over 100 EHS students joined together to learn about the daily lifestyle of the students in Zambia from guest speaker and CEO of the African Vision of Hope organization, Judi Bertels. Students also had the chance to win authentic African prizes from Zambia, including soccer jerseys, purses, and jewelry. Together, all students participated in writing letters of hope and inspiration to the Zambian students.

The African Vision of Hope organization began its mission in 1998 and currently funds five different schools in Zambia servicing over 1600 students. Over the last two years, the EHS Interact Club have bought graduation caps and gowns and an outdoor basketball court for the students of the African Vision of Hope schools.

This year, the Interact Club raised $1,000 for the Gift of Life program to help save the lives of children in need. 

Congratulations!!!! Boys' Basketball 4th Place

Imagine learning on top of the acropolis in Athens or Machu Picchu in Peru!  That's similar to what Honors Anthropology students did this semester when they climbed the largest earthen mound in the Western Hemisphere; otherwise known as Monk's Mound.  Cahokia Mounds is the most impressive archaeological site in the United States, because the people that created it 1,000 years ago had the most sophisticated and wealthiest culture.

The Edwardsville High School Marching Tigers marched right to the top last weekend, winning top prizes in competitions against some of the best high school marching bands in the Metro-East and St. Louis County.  After the Marching Tigers won first prize in their class at the Saturday Sept. 14 “Metro East Marching Invitational” at Belleville East High School, they again snagged first in their class at the bigger contest that evening, the “Metro East Marching Classic” hosted by O'Fallon Township High School.  At the O’Fallon contest, they were also awarded the prestigious Grand Champion trophy, or ‘best in show’ among all nineteen competing bands.
