Principal Message:

The fourth quarter is coming to a close as is the 2016-17 school year. The end of the school year requires all of us to buckle down and finish strong. Final Exams are around the corner, and students need to be well-versed in key concepts and skills from the entire year.
Building wide, each of the focus areas has numerous strategies and daily actions intentionally planned and implemented to ensure effectiveness and success. Below, I have summarized efforts on each of the three focus areas for this school year.
Attendance: We have 94.5% student attendance rate (state goal is 95%). Our focus on working with truant students and students who are considered chronically absent continues. Thus far, we have 11.8% of students are chronically absent; this is an improvement of over 80 students from 2 years ago.
Teaching: Almost 90% of the juniors in participated in a SAT preparation intervention or course to get ready for the School-wide SAT Day on April 5th.
Learning: As we move into June, students will receive a second set of scores for the Student Learning Expectations, students will receive the score on the 4th Quarter report card. Additionally, our recent Math STAR scores improved 9.5% on average per student, while in Reading STAR, we saw an average increase of 10% per student.
The summer is a great time to take advantage of opportunities to learn and grow. EHHS offers a few different avenues to improve over the summer. Give us a call to find out about: Summer Leader Institute, Summer Scholars, Leadership Alliance, Summer School, Summer Youth Employment, August Academy … and more.

student perspective:

We, the Class of 2017, have finally reached the home stretch. After numerous AP exams, tedious class assignments, and the grueling sports practices that began for some of us way back in August, the end of the tunnel is finally in sight. And yet, now that we're here, we're wondering where the time went. It seems like just yesterday was Pep Rally where we celebrated our school spirit – and now just week ago I was at the Top 20 dinner giving a speech about Hornet Pride. It's crazy how the time went by so fast, and it's amazing how we still have so many great senior activities to experience before we walk across that stage in just three weeks. Stay awake seniors, the ride isn't over just yet.
