PTSA Scholarship Applications
Due May 19!
At the March membership meeting, the PTSA membership voted to set aside funds to provide scholarships for academic or leadership-based enrichment programs for Einstein students – a first for our PTSA!

The Einstein PTSA’s intent in awarding scholarships for enrichment programs is:

  • to complement the student’s learning through experiences outside of the classroom; 
  • to give students further opportunities for personal growth and accomplishment; and 
  • to help students develop skills and competencies that will enrich the Einstein High School community.

Click here for the Scholarship Application and Applicant Instructions.  Hardcopy applications are located in the school's College and Career Center (Ms. Lanning).  Applications are due by 5 p.m., Monday, May 19 - please see the instructions.

Questions?  Email Jane Alperson, PTSA President. 

                                             Thanks for a Memorable After Prom! 
Once again the Einstein community came together and proved that it has the energy, stamina, creativity, and commitment to pull off an amazing ALL night party! The After Prom, in the wee hours on Saturday, April 26, was indeed a success - we entertained just over 300 seniors and their dates, and kept a good number of them until the early morning hours. 

None of this would have happened without the amazing committee chairs that took on the lion's share of the work and the parents of freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors who came out in force to work throughout the night to keep our senior class safe. If you were there, and had a minute to take a step back and take it all in, you would agree . . . it was an overwhelmingly impressive sight! 

Click here to see how all of our hard-working, fun-loving volunteers pulled off this great night for the terrific Class of 2014!  Be sure to thank them the next time you see them!

Teen Leadership Skills
             
Maryland’s premier leadership development program for middle and high school students. Maryland Leadership Workshops, was the focus at the March PTSA meeting. Two students, including one from Einstein, and a Gaithersburg High School teacher who have attended and staffed these workshops, explained that the program helps students discover and develop skills essential to lifelong leadership. This summer’s week-long residential leadership program will be at Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland.
