• HeyEHS!

    If a single image can capture EHS school spirit, what would it look like? Does a picture come to mind? Does it get summed up in a word or a phrase?

    We invite you to share it with us. We want to see it. We want to take your creation and produce 100 buttons for the school to wear!

    The 2020 Yearbook Staff invites the EHS community to  join us in celebrating and wearing our school pride through the Busy Beaver Button Co. Button Contest.

    The Busy Beaver Button Co. is a female-owned company in Chicago that practices green solar power manufacturing and produces high-quality products, and they've been doing it for decades. Their clients include top brands like Target, Dunkin Donuts, and WordPress.

    The contest is open to EVERYONE at EHS. You can submit up to three entries up until Friday, December 6. So get your designs in, and enter them in the contest!

    The yearbook staff will select the top fifteen designs. Then we’ll ask EHS to vote on ten designs that will be sent to the button company in Chicago for the final round of the contest.

    The top three designs will be selected by the team at Busy Beaver Button Co., and those designs will be produced as buttons for students to proudly wear all over campus!

    You can submit up to three entries either digital or hand-drawn up until Friday, December 6 by:
    1. Email: yearbook@ewsd.org
    2. In person: A days, B118 before A1/2
    3. Yearbook mailbox: main office

    Please remember to include your name and email. You can download a template here but any circular design works!


    There is no wrong way to express yourself but entries must be school appropriate. 

    Go Hornets!


    Submit your favorite photos to yearbook@ewsd.org for a chance to have your entry featured on our Instagram and included in the Yearbook.

  • Senior Photos



    The Yearbook staff will only accept VERTICAL PHOTOS that are 300 DPI (minimum 1200x1800 dpi) or better to ensure a clear and high quality photo.

    Submitting a vertical photo will prevent undesirable cropping. Please avoid photos from webcams, taken directly from social media platforms, or screenshots. The digital quality will not be high enough and it will not be used. You will receive a confirmation email from Josten's when you upload your photo.  

    Senior quotes must be school appropriate and limited to 200 CHARACTERS (including spaces and punctuations). The yearbook staff reserves the right to deny/edit any quote that we deem is inappropriate or too long.
