  • The annual E4T Conference for our junior Coyotes is February 6.   This is the curriculum of the day for all Junior students so all students are expected to attend.
    • Queen Creek and Combs High School are extremely fortunate to be able to partner in presenting the E4T (Elevate for Tomorrow) conference sponsored by Chic-fil-a this year on February 6th at the Queen Creek High School campus. This is an opportunity for Juniors Students from a few different schools to meet with area business leaders as well as college recruiters to help them with the skills and education needed to obtain a good job. We are looking for volunteers to help with the event. We will need help greeting students and making sure they know where they are going. We will need assistance during the breakout sessions as well as during lunch. We are looking to have 30 volunteers assist throughout the conference. We will need volunteers from 7am until 1pm. Please contact the volunteer coordinator, Jeff Horton, at jhorton3@qcusd.org or at (480) 987-5979 if you are able to assist.
