ERHS Calendar - Week of 4/15/19

Dear ERHS Students and Community,

 

As we approach a much needed break from school, I hope all of you get a chance to relax, restore and reflect on the year to this point. With two months of school remaining, upon return from the break and the days getting warmer, we will be at the conclusion of the year before you know it. For our soon to be graduating seniors, you will have memorable events, such as the Senior Class Trip and the Senior Prom to spend time with your classmates and members of the school community as you prepare to complete your studies in our classrooms. For those that are returning, you will be setting the stage for the coming years at ERHS.

 

This past week, our community came together for our PTA Meeting and I had an opportunity to address all who were present about some of our plans to address issues related to school culture. This has been and will be a priority for our school community and I ask that every one of us be willing to share, listen, learn and work together for our school community to both heal and grow from what the incident brought more to the forefront than ever before. There is an opportunity for the whole community to works towards improvement in areas from social interactions to realizing our own conscious and unconscious biases and how we work on ourselves. Harm was done to our school community, but smaller, less known harms occur frequently. How do we each build our own skill set to address behaviors that have a negative impact on one another?  

 

Next week, we will begin this work in partnership with Morningside Center for Teaching Social Responsibility (MSC). After planning with them the past two weeks and listening to students who have been hurt by others while students at ERHS, I hope what we have planned next week will begin the healing in earnest and allow for us to expand our work in these areas. Advisory NEEDS to be valued by those who participate. Adults and young people need to establish and commit to it being a safe space for all to have conversations that allow us to be honest and vulnerable with one another. It is the most important space for us to grow as human beings and if it is not being valued, there is real loss happening. We all have to own what happened at our school and understand that the culture permitted this and other daily micro-aggressions to occur pretty commonly. We all have to commit to ensuring this is a learning moment for everyone.

 

I will visit history classes on Monday, 4/15 to personally share our plans in more detail.  On Tuesday, 4/16, we will run a ”Special Monday Schedule” to allow for MSC to maximize their first day at ERHS, from two assemblies that will occur period 3 (9th & 11th grades) and 4th (10th &12th grades). MSC representatives will introduce themselves to the community and we will start with an activity and some Q-A.

 

I hope each of you will take the time to reflect on what occurred last month and the hurt that not only that incident brought to the forefront, but the importance of recognizing our individual responsibility in how we make our school the ideal place we all aspire for it to be for ourselves and each other.   

 

Wishing all of you a peaceful and enjoyable Spring Break. Happy Easter and Happy Passover to all in the school community who celebrate.  

 

Sincerely,

 

Mr. Saliani

Principal

 

Seen around ElRo last week: Spring is finally here and students are happy with special activities, on the field and in classes and have even been seen being silly this week before spring break. Have a great vacation and take lots of pictures!

ATHLETICS

 

This is the area where you will come to check out the current results and recaps from the latest games. This is also the area where you will look to see when sports interest meetings are planned for the upcoming season.  Remember, if you will be trying out for a team, you will need a current medical form filled out by a doctor, and a parent consent form. You can pick up both forms in the PE Office on the 2nd floor.

 

Track - In the first track meet of the spring season Julie S. posted a time of 12:58.40 in the 3000 meters, breaking the existing school record by 30 seconds! Julie now holds the ELRO record in the 400, 800, 1500, and 3000 meter races.
