HS Weekly Update 5/24/21

High School Students and Families,

We made it!  It’s the last week of school, and what a crazy school year it has been.  We will all appreciate this summer break more than ever.  

Please see below for the latest and greatest updates from the high school world. You can also access this message in the ERA HS Parent Resource Folder.

Updates and Announcements:

  • EOC Test Scores: Students who took an EOC test this year will receive a grade between a 90-100 for their final exam grade.  EOC test scores count as the exam grade, which is 20% of the final grade. We will adjust fall semester grades to reflect this update.
  • Ice Cream Social:  Our Diversity and Inclusion club is sponsoring an ice cream social tomorrow afternoon (Tuesday, 5/25) after graduation rehearsal from 3:30-4:30.  Stop by for some yummy ice cream.  
  • Senior Celebrations and Graduation Ceremony:  Click here for links to our Senior Awards video, a senior tribute from our Vocal Music ceremony, and information about how to live stream the graduation ceremony this Thursday.
  • School Chromebooks:  If you did not return your school-issued Chromebook or hotspot, please get that in to us this week. 
  • Summer Reading and AP Course Assignments:  There will be no school-wide summer reading assignment this year for our high school students.  Our English team did put together a list of some suggested reading titles.  For students taking select AP courses, they may have summer assignments.
