Principal's Message

It is super important that we never forget our “WHY” and continue to ground ourselves in our purpose for choosing to work at EEP. I know we had a chance to celebrate Thanksgiving with our own families but here at EEP...we are a family too! Just in case you forgot about the impact you are having on our scholars - please watch this EEP LIM video from last year’s leadership day to jog your memory. We have a shared purpose to not only get our scholars to and through college but to also model what it means to be apart of a family aligned to the same goals. I hope you enjoy!

School Wide Focus

Weekly Data Meetings

Kinder will be our last WDM of Quarter 2 on Tuesday, Dec. 3rd for Unit 4 Math (Please remember to bring 3 high, 3 medium, and 3 low pieces of student work from the Unit 4 test). Thank you everyone for your commitment to this focus area and the amazing gains we have seen from scholars is due to your selection of the right sized reteach model. Keep up the amazing work!! We're looking forward to our next Data Day on Dec. 20th to quantify the total growth we have seen and cannot wait to continue WDMs in Quarter 3

Deans of Academics

RTI Group Leaders

Please remember to implement any changes to RTI that you decided if scholars weren’t making growth in Tier 3. It is important that we implement with fidelity as you are a vital part of our scholar’s future in closing the knowledge gap for these scholars in the bottom percentiles.


Schedule Change

If you plan to make any temporary changes to your daily schedule please remember to inform your coaches. We schedule observations and our support time based off the master schedule. If you are running significantly behind or need to make an adjustment just provide your coach a heads up so that we can provide support or reschedule.
