Updates for February 18th


Good evening, Eagles! Here are six updates:

1.    Thank you to our Black Student Union for sharing this video about Black History Month Spoken word https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TNfH41-LI4w which led me to find this video about Black History Inventors https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAlR4KMoFa8 ! Let’s continue to expand our learning about Black lives in our history.

2.    Thank you to our families and students who share mental health and wellness resources with us. These two timely articles (https://www.nbcnews.com/news/education/remote-students-are-more-stressed-their-peers-classroom-study-shows-n1257632 and https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/14/world/europe/youth-mental-health-covid.html?smid=em-share) pair nicely with this short video with seven tips https://youtu.be/amwpzu_5lkY.

3.    Thank you to our participants in Student-Led Parent/Family Conferences this week!

4.    Thank you to AP Ms. Cisneros for her video update that is posted on our website, erhs.la! ROCK Madness is coming!

5.    Thank you to our Eagles who have been asking how to support Texas during the winter crisis. The Red Cross has ideas: https://www.redcross.org/about-us/news-and-events/news/2021/red-cross-responds-to-winter-storms.html and the Urban League https://aaul.org/love-your-neighbor

6.    Our school and District have been preparing for re-opening our campuses. Supt. Beutner’s mantra has been, “My North Star is the children. We cannot compromise health and safety.” There are three Town Halls about school re-openings tonight:

In closing, enjoy a poem about Black History Month by Faculty Member Ms. Henderson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWOiAHMZzZg&t=4s. We will continue to uplift voices and stories at The Rock.

Stay safe and strong,

Mrs. Keipp
