Elmira High School



Homecoming Week is September 24-28.  We have a fun week of activities planned culminating with our annual parade at 4:00 and football against Junction City at 7:00 PM.  The homecoming dance is Saturday, September 29 at 8:00 PM in the high school cafeteria.

The Elmira High School class of 1973 will be our special guest tonight at our home football game against Philomath.  We are excited to have these alums with us tonight.

Due to poor air quality in Grants Pass our football games at North Valley have been moved to Elmira.  The JV game will be played at 4:00 PM with the varsity to follow at 7:00 PM

Our annual Open House to begin the school year is on Thursday, September 13th at 5:15 PM.  We hope you will join us that evening to learn about our school, meet our great staff, take a tour of the campus, and stay and watch our volleyball team.  It promises to be an informative evening and we hope you can make it on September 13th.

We welcomed 19 incoming freshmen for our Strong Start Program this week at Elmira High School.  This program is designed to give our incoming 9th graders vital problem solving and decision making skills that will help them achieve success in high school.  They also will spend time with Elmira juniors and seniors and get to know some staff members as well.  The program runs throughout the week and it is not too late to participate, if you missed today’s activities you can still join us tomorrow.  If you have any questions contact Mr. Burgess at sburgess@fernridge.k12.or.us.
