Best wishes from ERHS for a scenic and reflective 2017! We appreciate your on-going support of academics, arts, and athletics at the Rock! Stay tuned for opportunities to participate in our 90th anniversary to celebrate our opening in 1927! The Pluses and Minuses of my first year as Principal Audits, audits, audits- We had seven audits last year that provided qualitative & quantitative feedback about topics ranging from attendance to fundraising. Our student attendance continues to be in the high 95% range. Staff attendance is a work in progress. Bell Schedule-Our school community of teachers, students, and families engaged in dialogue about our new seven period hybrid to support IB, reduce class size, student success, and teacher collaboration. Carnival-In collaboration with the Boosters, we tried to bring back an old ERHS tradition. Bureaucratic issues prevented the event and opened up a wonderful new tradition of a Community Festival on the football field with a silent auction, games & more! Diploma Programme-ERHS had its FIRST ever cohort of IB DP students who completed the two year program of study.Twenty-eight 2016 seniors earned the prestigious International Baccalaureate Diploma for their scores on internal and external assessments in seven areas! Eleven more students were within 1-2 points of the IB Diploma. And Xtra-Curricular-As evidenced by our Totem Yearbook, Eagle Scream newspaper, Facebook & website, we did a LOT last year in Arts (performances & competitions), Academics (97.5% average culmination and graduation) and Athletics (19 Northern League Championships, 1 City championship & 3 sports represented at the State level)! You! Thank you for your support and choosing to return to ERHS this year! I am glad to be back!
