Elmira High School



state testingA reminder that all Junior students will be taking four state tests this school year:  Reading, Writing, Math and Science.  In order to earn their diploma, the state of Oregon requires students to pass the tests in Reading, Writing and Math.  Most of the Juniors have taken their first attempt this school year in Reading and Math.  This week Junior students are beginning their state tests in Writing.  Over the course of the next month, all Juniors will complete this exam.  Ask your student how they are doing on their state tests and please provide any encouragement you can at home.  If you have questions regarding state testing, or how your studnet is doing, feel free to contact the school and speak to Mr. Carpenter, or Stacy Cornelius (the state testing proctor), at extension 336 and she can give you an update.  GO FALCONS!

grad.niteWe have a few dedicated parents who have been meeting to plan a fun and safe after graduation party for this years seniors.  This is a great way for our Senior parents to volunteer.  The time commitment is minimal, yet the opportunity it provides our students is very important.  If you are the parent of a Senior (or even the parent of an underclassman who wants to see how it is run), please consider assisting this group.  For more information  you can contact the main office at EHS-541-935-8200 and we will put you in touch with the committee.  THANKS!
