On Wednesday, January 25, EHS's entire eighth-grade class was treated to one of BlackRock's wonderful financial literacy seminars designed especially for our school, thanks to EHS board member and BlackRock's Global Head of Lending and Liquidity Philip Vasan! It was another enlightening afternoon in midtown, with our students learning lots from experienced BlackRock employees.

Our student violinists, naturally, are growing with it.

This fall, EHS is excited to offer a new Technology Club for a group of lucky 6th and 7th Graders. This new club was designed and is taught by Luigi Cicala, a teacher at The Brearley School.
