Enumclaw High School

Fall of 2021

Fall at Enumclaw High School

Judging from the blustery winds, the fallen leaves, and the need for that perfect hoodie, fall has arrived at Enumclaw High School. We all survived Homecoming 2021 and we are looking forward to one of our favorite times for the year. The staff at EHS hope that you share our love for fall on the plateau. Over the next few weeks we will host our virtual fall conferences, we will celebrate the holidays together, and we will continue to work together to create a positive culture here at Enumclaw High School.

Hornet Values

Over the next weeks, we will be working with students to review Enumclaw High School's Hornet Values. Our values were chosen through a collaborative process involving staff and students at EHS. This last week our staff made positive office referrals for students who were "caught" exemplifying these values at EHS. We handed out 37 positive referrals yesterday and will continue to celebrate our students who demonstrate these values of:

  • Teamwork
  • Honesty
  • Leadership
  • Responsibility
  • Dedication
  • Acceptance

We have amazing students at EHS and it is a joy to celebrate their modeling of our Hornet Values.

This year our College Fair is hosted by Arrow - an organization of College Admissions Representatives throughout the Pacific Northwest. There will be an introduction session and workshops on completing college applications and writing essays.

Students will be able to ask questions and receive contact information.

Don't see the college your student is applying to or interested in?

Never fear the information provided by the admissions advisors can be used when applying to any college. It is a great opportunity to receive information on how applications are selected by admissions advisors.

Attendance Matters

Attendance Did You Know?

  • Students should miss no more than 9 days of school each year to stay engaged, successful and on track to graduation.

  • Frequent absences can be a sign that a student is losing interest in school, struggling with school work, dealing with a bully or facing some other difficulty.

  • By 6th grade, absenteeism is one of three signs that a student may drop out of high school.

  • By 9th grade, attendance is a better predictor of graduation rates than 8th grade test scores.

  • Missing 10%, or 2 days a month, over the course of the school year, can affect a student’s academic success.

EHS Hate Has No Home Here Campaign

Why Hate Has No Home Here? The purpose of the Hate Has No Home Here campaign is to bring people together, to inspire dialogue, and develop relationships, because these are the things we believe most effectively combat hate. In a school, where everyone is in a learning environment, there are numerous opportunities for students, staff members, and leaders to come together and work on solutions to the specific issues that may be most prevalent in our community Our goal is to make Enumclaw High School a safe space for all of our students, families, and staff. Please watch for more updates in the future.
