High School Sched­ules Open House, Ag Day

Escalon Times - - FRONT PAGE -

Escalon High School is a busy place this week, with the on­go­ing Arts Alive show­case of stu­dent art­work set up in the old gym, an Open House set for Wed­nes­day evening and an Ag Day slated for Fri­day.

The Open House for the com­mu­nity will run from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. this evening, Wed­nes­day, March 22 and will pro­vide the chance for res­i­dents to view the art­work on dis­play in the old gym and meet with school ad­min­is­tra­tors.

The Arts Alive event, hosted each year, in­cludes art­work from ev­ery school site in the district, from ev­ery grade level. Classes have the op­por­tu­nity to come in from the out­ly­ing schools and tour the dis­play through­out the week, as well as take part in a num­ber of art ac­tiv­i­ties over­seen by stu­dent vol­un­teers from El Por­tal and Escalon High schools.

Of­fi­cials at the school also are in­volved this week with a mid-cy­cle WASC (Western As­so­ci­a­tion of Schools and Col­leges) visi­ta­tion, March 20 through 22.

Mean­while, with Na­tional Ag Week be­ing ob­served March 19 through 26, the high school will host Ag Day for high school and mid­dle school stu­dents on the EHS cam­pus on Fri­day, March 24 with a va­ri­ety of pre­sen­ters and ex­hibitors sched­uled to come in for the day. High School prin­ci­pal Eric Si­moni said the goal is to “pro­mote agri­cul­ture” and show­case the var­i­ous ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties the field pro­vides.
