Happy Spring Break everyone. Please find the link to a special message to all studetns and families. Here is the video.
Take care everyone! ~Mr. Fox
First and foremost, I hope you are doing alright. Anytime we have so much unfamiliarity and uncertainty, it can be very unsettling. I like the following quote: "Amazing things happen in a community when everyone pulls together." And that is where we are really at right now.
Shortly, I will be posting a series of information pieces for students and families as we move forward, with the information we have as of today. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact my staff or I.
Thanks everyone! Hang in there! ~Mr. Fox
Eastglen High School will be hosting our Open House on Tuesday, February 25th starting at 6:30 PM.

February is Black History Month. While we celebrate Black History year round, February is a time to celebrate the many achievements and contributions of Black Canadians who, throughout history, have done so much to make Canada the culturally diverse, compassionate, and prosperous nation it is today.
The commemoration of Black History Month dates back to 1926, when Harvard-educated African American historian Carter G. Woodson proposed setting aside a time devoted to honor the accomplishments of African Americans and to heighten the awareness of Black history in the United States.
Celebrations of Black History began in Canada shortly thereafter. During the 1970s, the week became known as Black History Week. It was expanded to Black History Month in 1976.
In December 1995, the House of Commons officially recognized February as Black History Month in Canada following a motion introduced by the first Black Canadian woman elected to Parliament, the Honorable Jean Augustine. The motion was carried unanimously.
Here at Eastglen, we are going to have a daily “Black History Highlight” -- which you are listening to right now! There are also a variety of displays you should check out in the library anytime this month! We are going to culminate with our next event hosted by the Eastglen Culture Club -- a Cultural Talent Show in March!

We look forward to celebrating this month with you, and Black History throughout the year.
