Our Mission Statement: The mission of Elmira High School is to meet state standards through active teaching and learning, and provide all students the academic and social skills to become successful members of our global community.

FYI-Report Cards for EHS students were mailed out yesterday (Wednesday 6-17). I will be working through next week, and then return on Monday July 20th. We will promote school registration and athletic registration dates beginning the end of July. Have a fantastic and great summer vacation with your families. Thank-you to everyone that had a part in making EHS a great place to go to school, and work, in 14-15. There are many many people that give time and energy to provide opportunities and programs to our students. Go Falcons!

Each year US News and World report puts out an article that ranks the nations top High Schools. A few years back, EHS made the list and earned a silver medal. The list of 2014 schools just came out and 28 Oregon High Schools made the list. Once again, EHS has made the cut, ranking as the 24th High School in the state of Oregon. For perspective, we are also the highest ranking 4A school on the list, and one of only two Lane County schools on the Oregon list (with the other being South Eugene). Thanks to all the teachers, parents, students and volunteers that make this possible. Go Falcons!

Our Annual EHS Junior Night event is coming up on Thursday, May 7th at 6:00 p.m. in the EHS theater. This is an event for both parent and student. We will cover a wide range of important information for Juniors as they plan for graduation and life after high school! Parents are strongly encouraged to join to gain greater insight into what role you can take and know how best to support your student for their next steps. The agenda will include a presentation on navigating post-secondary options and planning for college hosted by Mrs. Haas, EHS School Counselor, followed by some general senior year information shared by Mr. Carpenter. We hope you can make it and get a head start on senior year for the graduating class of 2016!

What: Community Forum on Drug Testing of H.S. athletes at EHS
Where: EHS Theater
When: Tuesday, May 12th from 7-8 PM.

Earlier this school year a group of parents asked the EHS administration to collect some data and look into the possibility of creating and implementing a policy around drug testing at EHS. As such, on Tuesday, May 12th we will be holding a Community Forum at the above date and time. As we get closer, a more detailed agenda and outline of the hour will be released. If this is a topic that interests you, regardless of which side of the discussion you fall, please plan on attending and being a part of the dialogue. Go Falcons!
