I would like to encourage you, if you are not a volunteer at our school, please consider volunteering.  Volunteers are needed to help with reading tests and quizzes, helping at sporting events, proctoring the EOC exams,  are just a sample of areas where volunteers are needed.    If you are not yet registered as a volunteer, please visit     The process is quick and easy.  Once registered as a volunteer, please visit our school’s website link “Getting Involved at EMHS” for all the different areas of need.

We thank you again for your support and engagement in our students and school.  It is important and valued by the staff at East Mecklenburg High School.  As we enter the warmer days ahead, we encourage you to please continue partnering with us in our quest to make our school a place of World Class Education To Create Lifelong Learners.
