Twin Day
All the students at EJHS look forward to Twin Day, and the teachers enjoy it just as much! Mrs. Leach, normally in a dress and heels, decided to dress as her twin, Mrs. Bohnhoff. twins
Yearbooks Available to Purchase

Our yearbook company sent us an additional 20 yearbooks to sell.  If your child didn’t preorder a yearbook, this is an opportunity to still purchase a copy.

Yearbooks cost $16 and checks should be made payable to Effingham Junior High School.  Payment may be made in the office.  We will take orders until our supply is exhausted on a first-come first-serve basis.  Yearbooks will be handed out as part of the reward day activities on May 28.

If you are unsure as to whether you have already purchased a yearbook, a list is posted on the bulletin board outside of the office.  You may also contact yearbook sponsor Mrs. Minor by phone (540-1307) or email minors@u40gw.effingham.k12.il.us

 

Bon Appetit!

Students learning about creative word use created menus and commercials for restaurants.
