The State released Graduation Rate data today, and EHS did fantastic! Big kudos to not only the EHS staff, but to all staff in the FRSD K-12 that play a role in graduating students. The article that was published in the Register Guard on this topic, can be confusing. The Register Guard breaks out the 4-year Cohort Graduation Rate data by schools for the larger districts (Churchill, Sheldon, Springfield, etc…). However, for smaller Districts they often just list the rate for the entire District. The rate for the FRSD (that takes into account all High Schools in the District – EHS and WLTLC) was 71.6% for the 4-year cohort rate, while the State average was 73.8%. However, the 4-year Cohort Graduation Rate for EHS was 89.83%. The only High School in Lane County that is our size or larger (4A) that we aware of that beat that, was South Eugene High School at 90.82%. Way to go EHS!  You can see all of the State Graduation Rate data by following this link.

Elmira High School Chamber Choir sings their appreciation to the Fern Ridge School District Board of Directors for School Board Recognition Month.

Original Lyrics,
Music “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen

Lyrics:

This one is for the Fern Ridge School District School Board
You Work so hard every day
You never get enough pay
We wanted to say we thank you
Morton, Larson, Sterling Pew
Soderberg, and Bolton too
It’s for you we sing this Hallelujah

We appreciate, we appreciate, we appreciate, we appreciate you.

You lead with visions and policies
You manage our budget with grace and ease
You sit through so many long meetings.
You helped to pass the school bond
And so of you, we are so fond
And for you, we sing this Hallelujah

We appreciate, we appreciate, we appreciate, we appreciate you.

boardJanuary is School Board Recognition Month.  Our school board members spend countless hours of unpaid time working to provide the best possible education for our students.   Celebrating School Board Recognition Month is one way to say thanks for all they do.

School board members represent their fellow citizens’ views and priorities in the complex enterprise of maintaining and running the community’s public schools.  They also reinforce the principle of local control over public education, which is an important, highly valued aspect of education in Oregon.

Please join us in thanking Fern Ridge School District Board of Directors Andrea Larson, Twinkle Morton, Craig Soderberg, Sterling Pew, and David Bolton.
