GAME/MATCH/MEET RESULTS

Thursday, February 6th

(NEW) BOYS VARSITY HOCKEY FALLS TO LAKEVILLE NORTH

The Boys Varsity Hockey team (12-9-1) ran into a hot goaltender as they dropped a conference game to Lakeville North 4-1.  After an early goal in the first period by the Panthers, the Lightning applied sustained pressure through two periods but were unable to solve the stellar defensive strategy thrown at them by North.  After three consecutive goals in the third period to secure the win for the Panthers, Alex Chesek converted a nifty pass from Matthew Schoonover to break the shutout late in the game for the Lightning.  Making his varsity debut between the pipes, Carter Jensen came in late in the third period for the Lightning and stopped a flurry of shots to keep the game within reach.  Shout out goes to the EVHS band for their efforts in pumping up the crowd and to the superfans for their continued support.  Next up for Eastview is a key conference road game against Eagan at 3:15pm on Saturday afternoon. #whateverittakes; #tateforthewin; #15-9-1 

 

(NEW) (Feb. 6) EASTVIEW HIGH SCHOOL BOYS JUNIOR VARSITY FALLS TO LAKEVILLE NORTH 7-2

Eastview Boys JV kept things interesting through a period and a half Thursday night vs. Lakeville North but couldn’t keep pace the rest of the way in a 7-2 loss.  After a LN goal in the first period, EV sophomore forward AJ Wagner tied things up 1-1 at the 14:02 mark (assist to junior defenseman Nick Lombardi).  It appeared the first period would end knotted in a 1-1 tie, but LN scored with just 18 seconds left to take a 2-1 lead into the first intermission. In the second period, EV would tie things up 2-2 just three minutes into the period when sophomore forward Jake Swanson beat the LN goaltender (assist to junior forward Matthew Schoonover).  That was all the offense EV would muster as LN took over the rest of the game scoring twice in the second period and adding three more goals in the final frame.  Sophomore goaltender Max Leach stopped 35 LN shots for the game.  Next up, EV makes the trek north on Pilot Knob Rd. to the Eagan Civic Arena to take on the Wildcats Saturday afternoon.  Face-off is 1:15 p.m. for JV and 3:15 p.m. for Varsity.

 


ARTS & ACTIVITIES

NIGHT OF ANCIENT TALES- EASTVIEW’S WINTER AND ONE ACT PLAYS

Join us for a Night of Ancient Tales, as Eastview’s Performing Arts Department presents two plays; Antigone  and Tales From Odysseus.  

Performance dates are February 20, 21, and 22 at 7PM in the Eastview Performing Arts Center.  All tickets are general admission and are available at the Box Office starting one hour before showtime.  Ticket prices are Adults: $7 and Senior Citizens/Students: $5.

Antigone: 

It takes guts to stand up to the most powerful man in the country. Especially when you’re 15. After both of her brothers kill each other in opposing sides of a war, Antigone dares to defy her uncle, King Creon, by burying her ‘traitor’ brother. When Creon discovers that Antigone has performed the burial despite his command, he orders her to be walled up in a cave alive thus starving her to death. Creon does not listen to the pleadings of Ismene, Antigone’s sister, nor his son Haemon, who is engaged to Antigone. Haemon goes to Antigone’s cave, sees that she has hung herself and kills himself as well. Hearing this, his mother also takes her own life at the fateful end of this Greek tragedy.

The Search For Odysseus:

The Search for Odysseus tells the story of the Odyssey, from the point of view of Telemachus, his son. After the Trojan War, Odysseus does not return with the other soldiers, and Telemachus sets out to find him and in so doing embarks on a voyage of self discovery.

THANK YOU & NEW WISH LIST ITEMS

The Learning Commons has recently received three significant donations of common household/garage goods from our wish list.  We were able to further stock our makerspace and shared some of the supplies with the applied math classes.  Thank you for your generous donations to build our Zapp Lab and other hands on work spaces!

We have added a few new items to our wish list, but have a special request. As your family may be upgrading your phone technology, please consider donating old phones to the Learning Commons.  We have a set of Google Cardboard Virtual Reality headsets, but no devices to project the videos.  The minimum requirement is simply a functioning phone which can connect to the internet.  We will be able to access hundreds of virtual tours with minimal investment and provide students with a whole new way to interact with rich learning opportunities.  Check out a sample video here and even more amazing with virtual reality!
