To raise money for its trip to the National High School Journalism Convention in April, The Stinger will host a series of bake sales in the coming months. The first sales will take place Jan. 12-13 in the HIVE, with desserts available before classes and after school. Find updates and details @stingerehs on Instagram.
The East Penn School District will be closed Jan. 16 in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, resulting in no classes for students.
An important reminder that midterm exams will take place Jan. 18-20 with 1 p.m. dismissal on each day. Exams for students’ 1A, 2A and 3A classes will be administered Jan. 18; exams for students’ 4A, 1B and 2B classes will be administered Jan. 19 and exams for students’ 3B and 4B classes will be administered Jan. 20. Make-up exams will be held Jan. 20-24; students must submit a legal excuse in the event of an absence.
In addition, midterm examinations will follow an open-campus policy. Students are permitted to leave school grounds after completing all mandatory exams, but must provide their own transportation. Busing will run on a typical schedule. Students with free periods may use Cafeteria 1 for quiet study halls.

Habitat for Humanity will hold its next meeting Jan. 24 after school in Room 513, inviting both new and returning members.
The second semester and marking period 3 will begin Jan. 25. Prior to this date, students are advised to check their schedules via PowerSchool to note any changes in classes.
In celebration of the Chinese New Year, World Cultures Club will host a game night 4-6 p.m. Jan. 26 in the HIVE, featuring a medley of food, activities and more. To RSVP, fill out the Google Form linked @ehs_wcc on Instagram. There will be an admission charge at the door which will include a small meal.
For days on which common planning occurs, students must first check in with their Hornet Homeroom teacher before entering the cafeteria. Mandatory sign-in sheets are located in Cafeteria 1 and must be completed upon entrance. Students may not enter the cafeteria unless instructed to do so and once instructed, may not leave the cafeteria without a hall pass.
Applications to the peer tutoring program are open to National Honor Society members. The program runs during Hornet Homeroom for all days of the school week, excluding Thursdays and runs on an e-Hall pass system. In addition, NHS notes its outstanding need for math tutors. Members interested in applying may fill out the Google Form located on the NHS Schoology page. For more information, visit @nhs.emmaus on Instagram.
