EDITORS’ NOTE Contents from Auston Katzfey and Danelle Topil

Dear Reader, Finals are looming, but with that comes the end of first semester, and you know what that means: winter break. ‘Tis the season to be jolly! So, while you’re frantically scrambling to buy last minute holiday gifts and trying to get in one last study session, take some time for yourself and sit down with the latest issue of The Cardinal. It will definitely prove to be beneficial. There is a staff editorial on the new Valedictorian policy, a four-step plan for passing finals, and a football montage. We put a lot of tender love and care into this paper, and we hope you enjoy it! We have continued to improve the look of the Cardinal and hope that you take note of the hard work Mr. Grady Salzman put into making the articles come to life. We’ve cut down our print issues to four this year, so this will be the last paper you see until February, but fear not! We’re always watching and writing about the events at EHS. Be sure to check out our online edition of the paper at

Happy Holidays, Auston & Danelle
