Does your child know how to check their grades in PowerSchool? Assistance logging into PowerSchool Gradebook will be provided on October 1st and 3rd in the Library Conference room during lunch. It is important that your child knows how to access their grades since printed progress reports will not be handed out this year. Students will still receive printed report cards at the end of each nine weeks. 

Juniors and Sophomores! Interested in attending the NC Governor's School, a summer program for gifted and talented high school students? Information packets are available in the Quad C Counselors' Office, and applications must be submitted by October 1st. Click here for more information. 

Parents and guardians who would like their own unique logins to review their child's grades in the PowerSchool Gradebook should visit the HomeBase website for more details, including the required application form. The completed application form and some type of ID should be brought to Ms. Hartsfield in the Quad B office. Once this process is complete the parents/guardians can be assigned a login.


Test Scores are in! On Thursday, September 4, the state Department of Education announced that 79.6% of the students at East gained more than a year's worth of growth. This is the highest high school score in Orange County, as reported by the News & Observer on Friday, September 5, 2014. 

Back to School information is now available! Click here for a copy of the letter, containing important information about schedules and parking, that has been sent out by Principal Tully to all students. 

In March our school launched a new digital learning environment by providing eChalk and Google Apps for Education accounts for students. These online tools enable students and teachers in our school to better engage, share, and participate in a collaborative digital learning community. Click here for more information. For a short video on how students will set up their eChalk profile, click here. Any students who need their login information should come to the library.
