Senior Main Page

Welcome to Mrs. Massey's Portal of Knowledge
This page is used as the Senior Announcements page. Text @ewaseniors to 81010 for senior information via text. If you need to send something out to all seniors, please email me with the information and I will text it out ASAP.
If you plan to participate in Senior Shenanigans, attendance at senior meetings is mandatory. Attendance is always taken. For the voting links below, you MUST sign in with your EWA email account.

This year’s Literary Contest, a short story competition sponsored annually by Raleigh Fine Arts Society is underway. We strive to encourage creative writing among students enrolled in grades 10, 11 or 12 in any Wake County public or private school, and we award prizes totaling over $3500 to student winners. Please see the attached brochure and visit our website at for more information.
The contest opens November 8 for student submissions. This year, we are using Submittable again; we found it to be an efficient and easy-to-use software program for submissions and judging. In the next couple of weeks, you will receive an email from Submittable Notifications with the following message:
If you are interested in participating, you must share your story WITH ME or MRS. HALL prior to January 10, 2018.
January 18, 2018 (midnight):  Deadline for student submissions
January 25, 2018 (midnight):  Deadline for teacher approvals
The above dates are not flexible.
