Please join me this month in congratulating one of our outstanding Eagle River High School teachers, Clinton Holloway. Mr. Holloway was recently recognized at the Excellence in Education Awards Dinner sponsored by the local Chamber of Commerce, Rotary, and Chugiak/Eagle River Foundation. The annual award celebrates the contributions of twelve outstanding educators in our community, all whom are making a significant impact in the daily lives of students and in their schools.
It is the time of year when seniors begin the annual tradition of counting down the number of days left before graduation. It seems like this year has gone faster than most. The beautiful weather, the longer days and the quick departure of snow has really ramped all of us up. With all of these factors in place it is important to remember the end goal, graduation! Please encourage your students to finish strong in their last quarter of high school.
Attached below this letter is a link to our school's DEED report card provided by the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development. Our report card shows Eagle River High School at a 94% attendance rate and less than 1% drop out rate. These are just a couple of highlighted areas in our report card. When I see results like this from our school, it makes me very proud to be the Principal at ERHS. I thank the students, staff, and parents for their endless efforts.
