Wrap-Up on 2021-22 School Year - Jason Ulbrich, Executive Director

Dear Families,


While we wrap up the 2021-2022 school year, we are already preparing for next year. We have identified what went well and are working toward a few important improvements, especially as our Board of Directors begins their strategic planning. Strategic Planning was delayed for more than a year because, unfortunately, Covid-19 took center stage. The Board will engage with staff, students, and families over the next few months to begin dreaming about our next five to seven years. Topics they are excited to discuss include academics, finance, equity, staff retention, and the constant pursuit of Classical Education. While we patiently wait for the strategic planning to start, there are a few key improvements already in process:


  1. Implementation of a K-5 Literacy Program: Amplified CK. This program is aligned with our Core Knowledge program and is considered a balanced literacy program. Reading is fundamental in order to access the great literature our students read.
  2. Finding employees is an issue across all occupations and industries, including education. Mrs. Bloomgren will present the Grow Your Own Program to the Board of Directors on June 14. This program will set ERA up for long-term success. While many schools have an approximate 75% retention rate, ERA has a retention rate of 96% for teachers and 92% for operations and assistants. This is well beyond education standards and is on par with our annual retention rate.


This year, we have witnessed many schools exhibit division and a lack of civility to the point of negatively impacting student learning. While there has been much disagreement within the ERA community, the way it was handled was healthy. I want to thank you for choosing civil discourse. The professionalism, patience, and empathy we have demonstrated has been truly remarkable.


Thank you, and have a great summer!

Please Complete Annual CISA Parent Satisfaction Survey 2021-2022 by Friday, June 3

The Curriculum, Instruction, and Student Achievement (CISA) task force of the Board of Directors in seeking parent feedback via our annual parent satisfaction survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ERACISA22.


The purpose of the annual parent survey is to seek feedback from parents in order to continuously improve the educational experience for our students. The survey includes four different sections: demographic information, Classical Education, changes, and ratings. This survey contains up to eighteen questions and will take approximately seven minutes to complete.


Please note: if you have more than one child at Eagle Ridge Academy, use a general sense of all of their experiences to answer the questions below. You do not need to fill out a survey for each child.


Please contact Academic Director Susan Bloomgren with any questions at sbloomgren@eagleridgeacademy.org.

Community Updates: School of Grammar

One School, One Book Family Literacy Initiative

We are excited to launch our One School, One Book (OSOB) family literacy initiative for the School of Grammar this summer!


Reading aloud to your child is the single most important thing you can do to help them succeed! The process of families reading together helps children build larger vocabularies, sharpens imagination, creates healthy dialogue, and cultivates a lifelong love of reading. Reading experts recommend that families read aloud to children even when they are able to read by themselves. Sign up here.

Less Than 20 School of Grammar Yearbooks Available!

Please email Mrs. Kruschke to purchase one: jkruschke@eagleridgeacademy.org. Don't miss out!

School of Grammar Holds First-Ever Schoolwide CIPHER Party

The School of Grammar held their first ever school-wide CIPHER Party last week. To celebrate students demonstrating CIPHER (Citizenship, Integrity, Perseverance, Honor, Excellence, and respect) this year, they were surprised with play time outside on six bouncy houses! Students and teachers were encouraged to wear crazy socks for the event, which they got to show off as they bounced around inside the houses. Thank you to Brian of Get It Done Services & Rental in Wisconsin for generously donated the use of the bouncy houses and to all School of Grammar students for continuing to uphold Eagle Ridge Academy’s pillars! View more fun photos here.

Schedule Changes, AP Exams, and PSEO - Mary Johnson, College & Academic Advisor

2022-2023 School of Rhetoric Students

After your 2022-2023 schedules are released to you, the only reason that a schedule change will occur is if you have been placed into the wrong core class. For example: being placed in Modern World without having taken Renaissance World. We will not be changing schedules because you want to take the same class during a different hour or a different teacher. You may have been placed in a different class than what you requested due to other classes you are taking. We have many classes that are only offered once a day in only one semester.


A few of you may see that your advisory teacher has changed. This was done to even out the advisory sections based on the number of graduating seniors and incoming freshmen. Do not request to be reassigned to a different advisory teacher, as your advisory will not be changed.


If you were placed in the wrong core level course, the Schedule Change Request form located on this web page will be live on August 1, 2022. Requests will begin to be reviewed on August 9, 2022. Requests submitted by email will not be reviewed. You must use the Schedule Change Request form for your schedule change request to be reviewed.


School of Rhetoric Students Who Took AP Exams

Your AP Exam scores will be available in July through your College Board My AP account.


School of Rhetoric Students Who Plan to Participate in PSEO for the 2022-23 School Year Your ERA PSEO Application was due on Monday, May 16, 2022. You are now officially late in applying for PSEO. You may access the ERA PSEO Application here under Forms or see me for a copy. You should have your PSEO application materials (participating college/university PSEO application, official transcript, MDE NOSR form and ERA PSEO application) submitted to the appropriate people no later than June 21, which is my last day before summer break. After June 21, I will not be available until August 2 to assist with official transcripts and MDE NOSR forms which have to be signed by me.


Sincerely,


Ms. MJ

Developing Connections

Thank You for Attending Volunteer Appreciation and Recognition Night 2022

On Tuesday, May 17, Eagle Ridge Academy held a Volunteer Appreciation and Recognition Night to celebrate the more than 300 volunteers who donated close to 4,500 hours of their time this year. This was a record year for volunteerism at ERA and the entire community is so grateful to those who stepped up to the task this year. As Eagle Ridge Academy grows, the need for volunteers becomes abundant. In the words of Eagle Ridge Academy's Classroom Parent Lead Volunteer Karen Oglesby, who spoke during the presentation: “In addition to being volunteers, one thing we all have in common is that we have chosen a Classical Education for our children. We have chosen a model that’s not just about academics but aims to grow up good citizens who will build a good society. This is a big goal and it isn’t just the job of the school, but must be a cooperative pursuit… We work hard for that which we value, and your investment of time, love, and energy not only shows how much you value Eagle Ridge, but also adds value to the Eagle Ridge experience. It builds the culture of Eagle Ridge Academy and communicates our values in a way that both benefits and inspires others.”


Thank you to the ERA PTO and the ERA Booster Club. Thank you to everyone who helped out in the classroom, on field trips, on the grounds, in the library, and everyone in between. Thank you to the ABC Board, the ERA School Board, and the Friends of Education Board. Thank you to ALL Eagle Ridge Academy volunteers. Eagle Ridge Academy is grateful to you for creating a culture of joy and giving at Eagle Ridge Academy. View photos from the event here.

Thank You ERA Volunteers - May 2022
