Here’s a great example of a school reaching out to alumni. Recently Egg Harbor Township High School offered a tour to alumni to see the new school. Here’s a copy of their e-mail blast announcing the event:
Egg Harbor Township High School Alumni – Egg Harbor Township, NJ
Please consider attending our Alumni Open House and Tour of the new High School from 3 – 5 p.m., Wednesday, November 23, 2011.
EHTHS To Host Alumni Open House Event
In an effort to reconnect with graduates, Egg Harbor Township High School personnel will host an Alumni Open House and Tour of the newly-renovated and expanded facilities from 3 – 5 p.m., Wednesday, November 23 — the day before Thanksgiving.
High school student ambassadors will lead the tours of the new performing arts center, gymnasium, cafeteria with indoor and outdoor seating, state-of-the-art classrooms, a media-rich library, numerous science labs, a new band equipment room, and outdoor garden breezeways that connect the academic buildings.
The open house and tour will serve as the kick-off event to what is traditionally the biggest gathering weekend for EHT alumni. A pep rally and bonfire pregame ritual will take place after the open house at approximately 7 p.m., in anticipation of the Thanksgiving Day football game rivalry against Mainland High School scheduled the following morning on Egg Harbor Township’s home turf. Discounted football game tickets will be given to alumni who attend the open house event.
Alumni outreach efforts also include the introduction of an easy-to-access electronic transcript request site at http://eht.revtrak.net/, and the launching of a new alumni website at www.ehtalumni.org, which was funded by the Community Partnership for Egg Harbor Township Schools, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity dedicated to raising supplemental funds for the district.
