9th-grade Summer Reading 2020-2021

 

All students taking Honor’s, Pre-AP, and AP English classes at EHS must complete a summer reading assignment.  If you plan to take one of these classes, please complete the assignment listed below.  Schedules for all students will be released mid-July.  If your recommended Honor’s or AP class does not show on your schedule, there will be a prioritized and designated time for adjustments by Counselors to accommodate Honor’s or AP classes for students.  Have a wonderful summer, and enjoy your reading!  We can’t wait to see you again!

 

9th grade Honor’s English-

Required texts:

Night by Elie Wiesel (book)

“This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen” by Tadeusz Borowski (short story)

Assignment:

Choose ONE of the following prompts and answer in a well-written essay. Be sure to thoroughly answer all parts of the prompt. Explain/Expand/Elaborate as necessary. Use the texts to support your answers. Do your best personal work.

  1. There are many varying accounts of life in the concentration camps from Holocaust survivors. In a well-written essay, compare and contrast the experiences of Eliezer in Night and the narrator in “This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen.”

 

 

  1. Dehumanization is the process by which the Nazis gradually reduced the Jews to little more than “things” which were a nuisance to them. Explain at least 2 specific examples from Night and “This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen” of events which  dehumanized Eliezer, the narrator, or their fellow Jews. Then, analyze how each event changed their attitude, outlook, and identity.

Rising 10th, 11th, 12th Grade Registration Documents


Tuition/County Students

Prospective Tuition/County Applicants in Grades 9-12

New tuition applicants at the high school will not apply online in the Cyclone Connection like applicants in grades K-8. New tuition applicants and new Elizabethton High School students (not transferring from T. A. Dugger Jr. High) and their parents should make plans to attend one of two tuition registration dates at the high school.

Appointments are not necessary for these dates; however, parents and students should come and allow at least 45 minutes for the registration process. The applying student or parent should pick up and complete a registration packet in advance of the registration dates. Rising freshmen who have not already picked up their registration packet should pick one up from the EHS counseling office.

On registration days, students and parents are required to bring:

  • the colored registration form (all sections completed),
  • birth certificate,
  • social security card,
  • current TN immunization (see packet for proper form),
  • 2 proofs of residency (see registration packet for the only documents accepted), and
  • custodial documents. 

Also, current high school students will need to withdraw from their current school after their last day of class.

If the new student receives special education services, forms will only be collected by the counseling office, and a future appointment will be made for the special education department.

Returning Tuition/County Students in Grades 9-12

Parents of returning tuition students will update forms in Skyward just like returning city students (as described above). Continued enrollment as a county/tuition student is assumed unless the school is notified otherwise.

For more information please contact Beth Hilbert at 423- 547-8015 extension 1528

TN High School Diploma Project


Civics Assessment

Per state law (T.C.A. § 49-6-408A), students must participate in the United States citizenship and immigration test during the student’s high school career. All public high school students, including the class of 2017, are expected to participate in the civics test; however, a passing grade is not a requirement for graduation. Schools in which all seniors earning a regular diploma also earn a passing grade (70 percent or higher) on the U.S. civics test will be recognized by the department as a U.S. Civics All-Star School. For more information from the state, click here. For more information about the test and its administration at EHS, contact EHS teacher Joe Diaz.
