On-Site to Monroe College


From Our College Advisor, Ms. Washington…

Earlier this month, East-West seniors had the opportunity to participate in an On-Site Interview Day with Monroe College.

Our students submitted their completed Admission Packets (which included an essay, letters of recommendation and Fall 2016 Freshman Application) and sat down with an admissions counselor to interview for a potential spot in the freshman class.

On Tuesday, November 24th the Director of Admissions for Monroe College, Michael Niedzwiecki and Admissions Counselor, Jessica Castillo-Perez came to East-West to announce the students that were granted admission during a Muster presentation.

We were excited to have some of our students accepted to Monroe and especially proud of the students that were able to obtain scholarship. The college office is happy to have the chance to present this opportunity to our students.

Changing the Face of Men’s Health-Support Movember Month

A message from our illustrious social studies teacher, Mr. Oppenheim,

This Movember, I’ll be raising funds and awareness for men’s health. Will you join me?

Signing up is really quick and easy…


It doesn’t matter if you’re a Mo Bro or a Mo Sista – Movember is for everyone. There are two ways to participate: sign up to grow a moustache for 30 days, or take the MOVE challenge and get active every day for 30 days.

I’m passionate about this because 510,000 men die from suicide each year. That’s one every minute. The Movember Foundation is funding research and services to help men and boys stay mentally healthy.

Learn more about the important work and impact the Movember Foundation is having: http://us.movember.com/programs/strategy

We’re in this together, so get involved and spread the word.

Sam Oppenheim


Join our Student Government in displaying the spirit of East-West.

Dress up for Wacky Tacky Monday, Character Day on Tuesday, Culture Wednesday, Sports Thursday, and in celebration of Halloween, Fright Friday.





From our Student Body President, Pamela Benitez:

Its a great time for students to show off their creativity and spirit. Everyone loved to play pretend and dress up as kids, spirit week is a great time to relive that. This year’s lineup include Wacky Tacky, Character Day, Culture Day, Sports Day, and last but certainly not least, Fright Night. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, so I hope everyone else enjoys it as much as I do. It’s great to see students get excited over the Fright Night costume contest, arguing over who will have the most awesome disguise. One of my favorite parts of spirit week is to see teachers dress up and take part in the fun.  I look forward to seeing which students and teacher win the Fright Night costume contest.
