PARENT SECTION

(NEW) PARENTS ARE KEY (PAK) EVENT - LIVING ABOVE THE LINE

EVHS PAK (Parents are Key) kicks off our 2018-19 Parent Education Series on Wednesday, September 26th with Top 20 Teens author, Tom Cody.  Our first topic is a way of thinking, learning and communicating called living above the line. It works with everything from parenting to politics!! "The Line" is a lesson that we use with all of our EVHS 9th graders (our 10-11th graders have all experienced this lesson, too), so we want to create a shared perspective and vocabulary.  Teachers, students and parents all talking the same language...how powerful is that?!?! Click here for a short preview.  We are offering two sessions in hopes to provide an opportunity for EVERYONE who wants to attend: Wednesday, September 26 from 7:00pm - 8:30pm and Saturday, September 29th from 10:00am - 11:30am. Both sessions are the same, so pick one (and bring a friend!!).  We’ll be in the EVHS Learning Commons/Media Center; all EVHS PAK event are free and open to the public!





THE DIVINERS TICKETS NOW ON SALE!

Tickets to The Diviners, our fall play, are on sale now at http://evhs.seatyourself.biz. Performances will be October 11, 12, and 13 at 7:00 PM.  The Senior Citizen Preview is on Tuesday, October 9th at 3:30PM. Tickets for the preview are free for senior citizens.  Any remaining seats will be sold to the general public at 3:15PM for $5.  


This marvelously theatrical play is the story of Buddy--a sweet, but troubled boy—and his friendship with C.C.—a disenchanted preacher, in southern Indiana during the early 1930s. When Buddy was four, he almost drown. This trauma, and the loss of his mother during the same accident, has left him deathly afraid of water and brain-damaged. Ironically, he has developed an uncanny ability to find water for his drought-besieged farm community. A unique bond develops between Buddy and C.C., the man who represents salvation to the beleaguered townspeople. C.C. devotes himself to helping Buddy, and his efforts precipitate a startling chain of events.  Hope to see you at the show!

(NEW) 10TH GRADE BOYS SOCCER: EASTVIEW VERSUS APPLE VALLEY
Your Eastview 10th grade boys soccer team faced rival Apple Valley on Wednesday once again this season. Eastview scored the first goal of the game when Cole Trinkle got one in early in the game. The Lightning held the game at 1 to 0 until the last two minutes of the half when a handball in the box by Eastview gave Apple Valley a penalty kick which brought the score to 1 to 1 at the half.

Eastview got a penalty kick of their own when Apple Valley pushed Jayden Burr over in the box and Gavin Cerrato answered by picking the low corner for a beautiful goal to bring Eastview up 2 to 1.

Eastview played strong, possessing and controlling the ball for the majority of the game, but the Apple Valley Eagles came back to score another goal and the game ended in a 2 to 2 tie.
