ERHS Calendar - Week of 4/29/19

Dear ERHS Students and Community,

 

As we return from Spring Break, I hope everyone in the community had a relaxing, reflective and restorative break. With the reopening of school, we, as a community, have an opportunity to continue the conversation on issues related to our school culture and improving the environment for all students. Before we went on break, we had two assemblies, co-facilitated by Morningside Center for Teaching Social Responsibility, to introduce themselves and to hear directly from students about what they were positive about and what were areas for growth. As our students shared with each other in the auditorium, it was clear that we have a great deal to be proud of as a school community, while also being honest that there are ways we can and need to grow, including how we can be better to one another. As we reopen this Monday, we will have continued opportunities to work collaboratively and be clear, that we, as a community, will need to work to heal and continue to learn from one another.

 

We have had an advisory program here since the opening of the school in 2002. We have grown it to have dedicated 12th graders serve as ElRo Sibs along with faculty advisors, to lead our advisory program in topics ranging from social-emotional learning to exploring current events to reminding all to be kind to one another. We have an opportunity to re-dedicate ourselves to this important program. We need to own and examine how our school environment allowed for this very hurtful and painful incident to happen.  Now it is up to us to be active allies in the fight against bigotry, racism, sexism, misogyny, ableism, ageism and other forms of discrimination and oppression.

 

Students who feel passionate about needed changes are encouraged to continue to speak up and work with adults in our school to bring these conversations to the table. It is my hope that our school will grow from this painful incident that forced us all to take a look in the mirror. That will require a great deal from all of us and if done honestly, will lead to growth as we experience extreme discomfort, feelings of anger, a need to really hear/listen to one another, non-closure at times, disagreement and even setbacks. There are no easy answers to complicated issues.

 

We have a plan for Monday, 4/29 to allow our community to continue the conversation and promote allyship and healing as those involved return to our school. Morningside Center and ERHS administration/faculty/staff will facilitate a restorative conference with those directly involved as well as allies and classmates. Students and faculty are encouraged to also have conversations, where comfortable, to continue this work as well.

 

In addition, some in our community plan to attend a two-day anti-discrimination clinic that is being offered on Tuesday 4/30 and Wednesday 5/1 by our community partners, Project Reach. Those attending will share their learning with us and we will turnkey them with the community. Also, some ERHS students attended a Youth Symposium around School Diversity during this past month, attended by Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza. They had an opportunity to share their voice with DOE leadership on issues related to admissions and school culture. There will be a follow up meeting this week entitled School Diversity Advisory Group Town Hall from 6:30-8:30 pm at the Clinton School (10 East 15th St.) for those that attended and those interested. If interested, please contact me at dsaliani@erhsnyc.net.

 

I thank you for doing your part, as we come together, to make this a reality and I stand shoulder to shoulder with each of you in this endeavor.

 

As we all learned over the break, another horrible violent act was committed in Sri Lanka with great loss of life. I will be meeting with student leaders and faculty/staff to figure out any steps the ERHS community will be taking, coupled with what happened in New Zealand last month.

ElRo Corner

 

Hello everyone!

 

We hope your break has been going well. Monday the 29th at 5:30 is Percussion night! There will be talented musicians there incorporating all types of percussion in different genres of music. However this is no ordinary recital! Salsa and Rumba will be playing and dancing is highly encouraged :) Members from the outside band, People of Earth, will be playing with the students as well.  There will also be food if that’s an incentive to come. This is a great opportunity to dance and listen to good music (and eat) your stress away. We hope you come, even if it’s just for a little bit!

 

Thanks,

 

Percussion Club

Ms. Mendlowitz composed this using Haikubes:

 

     Sleeping under leaves

     Dreaming what love whispers or
