Words from our Principal

Crusader Families,

We are just a few short weeks away from spring break. You should have received progress reports from your students last week and students should be focused on improving grades through AEC, Saturday Scholars, and tutoring. My goal is for EVERY 8th grade student to participate in promotion. In order to be eligible, students must pass all 6 classes in June.

Mark your calendars! The promotion date has been set! 8th grade promotion will take place on Friday, June 5th at 2:30pm at Otay Ranch High School. I can't wait to celebrate the success of our students.

On Tuesday, some of our students participated in a walkout to demonstrate their support for their teachers during this time of district budget cuts. The walkout was peaceful and orderly and no students attempted to leave campus. The walkout wasn't planned in advance and unfolded very quickly Tuesday morning. I would like to encourage our students to plan purposeful ways of voicing their opinions in the future by working with administration and promoting their events to students. By doing this, we can be prepared to teach our students how to be activists and how to have their voices heard in a meaningful way.

I am proud to announce that on March 15th, ten of our staff members will be running in the San Diego Half Marathon and Padres 5k. If you would like to come out and cheer for us along the route, we would love to see you!

We are in the final stretch of the year. I would like to thank all of you for your continued support and communication. If there is anything I or my team can do to support you in these final months of the year, please let me know.

Thank you,

Teresa Kramer

Our Crusader boys played hard and looked great against the Tritons in the Metro League Middle School Championship game. It was a close game but ELM took the championship. Congratulations to our boy for an amazing season!
