We will also have a special music event on Monday, 5/13 with world-class percussionist and band leader Pedrito Martinez coming to ERHS for a special workshop at 3:15pm in the Music Room (201).

This coming weekend is the Class of 2019 Senior Class Trip! All seniors attending will gather at 8am in the auditorium to depart for Honor’s Haven Resort in beautiful Ellenville, NY. We hope everyone has a great time as we celebrate the class. Thank you to all the ERHS faculty/staff attending the trip. We will be returning on Sunday around noon. See or contact Ms. Jaimee Strasser, ERHS COSA with any questions about the trip at jstrasser@erhsnyc.net. There will be a special schedule for any 12th graders in attendance on Friday that are not attending the trip.

 

In ElRo sports, a special shout out to senior Max A. who finished third overall, last week, at the PSAL Individual City Championship, out of a field of 35 of the best golfers in NYC. This is our school’s best finish in the history of the competition! Congratulations Max! Max has qualified to play in the NY State Championships later this summer at historic Bethpage Black.

 

Thank you to sophomore Adam V. who shares a special message about the human impact on the natural environment, in terms of the effect on birds and the stark reality of glass windows on their lives. Please take a moment to read his informative piece on this issue, take action and consider joining the ElRo Naturalists Club.

 

Sincerely,

 

Mr. Saliani

Principal

 

Seen around ElRo last week: There were so many events last week, we needed to add extra pictures to this calendar. From the Cinco de Mayo celebrations to the Spring Guitar Concert, class projects and productions, National Honor Society and sports, we were busy! it was a great spring week at ElRo. We end with a classic New York City experience photograph. Have another great spring week, this week!

Preventing Bird Strikes in NYC

 

Spring has finally arrived in New York and millions of tourists fly here from all over the world to take in the sights. However, if you head to Central Park you will realize not all the visitors are human. Spring is when birds visit New York City on the Atlantic Flyway, a migration route from South America all the way up to Canada and the Arctic. And while more and more people are enjoying watching the arrival of over 200 unique birds to New York, for many species of birds, a visit to our city is a dangerous time.

 

Birds face a wide variety of unlikely threats in the United States: wind turbines, invasive species, and feral cats, but by far the most deadly obstacle that birds face worldwide is glass windows. Birds eyes are not adapted to glass, they do not perceive it as an object and as a result, they collide into it. No animal has evolved to see glass. Humans technically cannot even see it as we see only reflections and the dust that gathers on it, but not the glass itself. So imagine trying to stop if you are flying.  

 

Glass windows kill an estimated up to one billion birds per year. When birds collide into windows the majority die on impact or suffer traumatic injuries that kill them shortly. Many survivors have their beaks snapped off, and have to be euthanized to avoid a painful death of starvation. Other surviving birds are often stunned after hitting the glass and are taken by hawks, cats, rats, dogs, and even street sweepers before they have a chance to recover.

 

There are proven ways we can help birds during migration. You can do turn off the lights at night and close your window blinds or curtains, which makes birds less attracted to buildings. If you live in a building with a skylight you can ask your building to turn it off as it’s not necessary and attracts birds that will later be killed by the building's windows. Most importantly, you can ask your State and local representatives to pass laws that make architecture more friendly for birds. The glass Javits Center in 2009 was named by the New York Audubon as one of the top three bird killers in NYC. But after a renovation that not only made the building more energy efficient, less reflective glass has seen death decrease by 90%. If you are interested in solving this problem you can click here to sign a petition that will go to Councilman Ben Kallos to encourage legislation to require new buildings being built in the neighborhood to have bird-friendly windows. If you want to learn more about birds and nature, join the ELRO Naturalist Club, we meet on Fridays in the Lab Room. NYC is an important city and it is our responsibility to make the world a better place for all.  

 

Sincerely,

 

Adam V. Co-President of the ELRO Naturalists
