Greetings Colts Families,
This past Tuesday, we had the pleasure of hosting Roosevelt Rush, a fantastic event where our 8th graders got a sneak peek into the myriad of programs, clubs, and activities that ERHS has in store for them. It's all part of our mission to ensure a seamless transition to high school, and the energy and enthusiasm were truly inspiring. A heartfelt thank you to our dedicated parents, students, and staff for your unwavering support of our tardy policy. Your efforts are making a tangible difference in our classrooms, with teachers reporting fewer interruptions and more focused learning time.
All 7th and 8th grade parents, you should have received a contract outlining clear behavior and academic expectations. This tool is designed to foster accountability and set the stage for success as we navigate the remainder of the academic year together.
Thank you to our Tier 1 and Tier 2 teams. With their guidance and support, we are confident that all students will have the opportunity to participate in the exciting activities planned for the second semester. Have a great week!
Eva Isett, Ed.D.
