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.
This week is teacher appreciation week. Thanks to all of the teachers at Elmira who go above and beyond to help students succeed. We will be recognizing them throughout the week here at EHS. Go Falcons!

Final exams cannot be taken early, however we can schedule them to be taken later in June if there is a need.
After almost a year of planning and work, the EHS Athletic Hall of Fame is here! Visit: http://www.fernridge.k12.or.us/elmirahs/ehs-athletic-hall-of-fame/ for the Guidelines and Nomination Forms.
The inaugural class will be inducted in January or February of 2017. Applications will be accepted beginning now, through November 1st, 2016. Please assist us in spreading the word about this exciting new program here at EHS.
Early this morning, Elmira H.S., the Elmira Community and the family of Kyle Smith, received tragic news that he had passed away. Kyle was a graduate of EHS in 2012. He was an outstanding kid, an outstanding athlete and was growing into an outstanding, young man. Kyle attended Portland State University where he played football and was majoring in business. This devastating news has been hard on staff and students and will be for some time to come. This type of news affects people differently. Parents should be prepared to discuss this with their students tonight and offer support as needed. The school has a room today, staffed with counselors and staff members, to assist with these difficult emotions and feelings. We ask that you please keep the Smith family in your thoughts as they grieve this unimaginable loss of a son, brother, nephew, uncle and grandson, as well as a friend to many.
—Gary Carpenter, Principal, EHS.
