Angels on Air 10/18/18

Reminder: there is no school Friday, Oct. 19 through Tuesday, Oct. 23.

Schedule change and special concert Oct 18

Radio station KS 107.5 held an annual texting contest for students to bring their favorite artists to their school. Our East Angels have won this year. Rappers Kyle and Mark E. Bassy will be performing for students at East.

In celebration of this win, we are shifting our schedule tomorrow to shortened class periods 2, 4, and 7 with lunch after and a release time of 12:00pm.

Students may either stay for the concert in the auditorium, stay to eat lunch in the cafeteria or exit for the weekend. Students who take the yellow school bus home will be on the same Thursday schedule as is typical for them.

Here is the specific schedule for the day:

Period 2 7:30-8:55
Period 4 9:00-10:25
Period 7 10:30-11:55
Student Entry into Auditorium for Concert or Exit for the Weekend 11:55
End of Concert 12:45 (about)

Students staying are required to wear red and white and have their East High School student ID with them in order to enter the Auditorium. In support of Spirit Day, purple will also be an appropriate color.

We are happy to bring this fun experience to our students as they begin their Fall Break.

Fall Play is Here
