Greetings, and welcome to our page! The EHS Herald had a busy final month of the school year, as our staff was hard at work on our well-known Super Senior issue. The issue was a success, and we would like to thank all of our supporters who bought advertising and helped to make this wonderful project happen. We the staff would like to wish all of our readers a safe and enjoyable summer and remind you to look for more intriguing articles from our new and returning members in early September. Happy writing!

Thursday, April 30 night was the 2015 MORP Extreme Volleyball game. The Freshmen and Sophomores played HARD with only 5 players and no one to sub out. But alas they fell to the Juniors and Seniors in their matches…though they were tight!
Seniors and Juniors went up against each other in the Championship round and though the Seniors dominated that game, the Juniors came back from a 10 point deficit.
But in the end, the Seniors reigned supreme! Congratulations Seniors and all those who participated.
Tonight is the Girls Extreme Football game at Ely Stadium at 6:00.

Yesterday during the “Stand for the Silent” presentation, Malcolm had the courage and compassion to walk to the front of the Performing Arts Center during the assembly to give the speaker, Mr. Kirk Smalley, a hug.
Mr. Smalley was telling the students how his son took his own life due to bullying. Malcolm started a wave of support from other students who also felt compelled to hug Mr. Smalley during the presentation to show support.
After the assembly Mr. Smalley said in all of his time giving the presentations, that has never happened, and it was awesome!
Thank you Malcolm for “Being a Pioneer” and demonstrating respect—we are so proud of you!

The end is nigh. Only a month left for our beloved seniors then they are on their way to bigger and better things.
Senioritis- a disease that afflicts primarily seniors in their final days at high school. This not-so-chronic illness causes the afflicted senior to slack off and blow off doing any school related work. This can manifest in many ways. The senior may start to dress unprofessionally or stop caring about how they look at school. They also may stop doing their school work or even coming to class all together.
I stopped writing this article half way though because I have also been afflicted by this not-so-chronic disease.
The end of the year is coming. Seniors are getting ready for college or the outside world, exams are fast approaching, and, of course, there is the crippling senioritis.
As much as I hate to admit it, slacking off is very risky this time of year. It’s not over yet, I’m afraid. Stay strong and Pioneer Strong, my friends.
“What is Risk?”
“There was once a college that offered a class on probability applied to the real world.
“The class was relatively easy, but there was a catch. There were no homework assignments or tests, but there was a final exam that would have only one question on it.
“When everyone received the test it was a blank sheet of paper [except for] a solitary question on it: ‘What is risk?’
“Most students were able to pass, but only one student received 100% for the class! Even stranger was that he only wrote down one word!
“What did he write?”

Every Tuesday I plan to upload a brain teaser, each with the previous week’s answer.
This brain teaser came from braingle.com.
“The third unit, which analyzed the contents of the chamber, is definitely a fake. ‘Air’ is a name that we give to the combination of gasses that make up our atmosphere. It is made up of oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and trace amounts of several other chemicals. Because of this, there is no such thing as one molecule of air. Assuming that there is only one molecule in the chamber, it would either be oxygen, nitrogen, or one of the other chemicals. A piece of analysis equipment would never call it ‘air’.“
