A Perfect Tailgate Party

We sure hope you and your family were able to make it to the Tailgate Party this last Friday night. Watching the children have fun was thrilling. It was a perfect evening for our families to enjoy each other and meet our new families to ERES. We need to give a HUGE thanks to our PTA, especially Karen Evans and her crew, for giving up so much money and time in preparing for the evening. We all have special memories to take with us. Your dedication to ERES makes us EAGLE RIDGE PROUD!! Thank you!

Your C.E.I.C. met...

The CEIC (Campus Educational Improvement Committee) is a decision-making advisory group for campus administration in matters of campus planning, operations, policies and procedures. It is made up of parents, teachers, staff, and community members. We held elections last year for its members, and we continue with the same group this year. All meetings are open to the public. At our last meeting, we discussed our campus mission statement, the bond election, the campus's improvement plan for this year, new teachers, and other concerns for our school. If there is something that you need to bring to this group, please do not hesitate to come to our meeting or share with your representative. (Nick Evans, Lisa Groene, and/or Michelle Sanford) We do need another parent, so if you are interested, please let the principal know of your interest. Thanks for to this great group of parents for their dedication!
