Eagle River High School
February 2020


 PRINCIPAL 
TIM HELVEY

 
Congratulations to the Class of 2020 Honor Graduates.  Nearly a third of all ERHS seniors earned this academic distinction by maintaining a seven-semester cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher.  Congratulations to these 44 hardworking graduates!
 
The district's Visit Our Schools Month will start on Tuesday February 4, at 9:30 am and continue every Tuesday for the month of February.  Please join us on these dates if you have any questions about Eagle River High School.
 
During the month of February we will host our annual 8th Grade Information Night on February 25th.  If you know any current 8th graders or community members who would like to learn more about our school and our programs, please pass along these opportunities to tour the building and discover more about Eagle River High School.
 
Counselors are talking with students this month about their 2020-2021 course requests, prompting students to think about several important questions: How do I best prepare for what I want to do after high school? How do I continue to challenge myself? How many rigorous classes are too many? What will my homework load look like? How do I strike the right balance between academics and all my other activities?  Parents, I encourage you to talk through these important questions with your student in the coming weeks and contact our curriculum office at 742-2740 if you have any follow up questions or if you would like additional information.

Curriculum/Student Services

 
Our counselors are busy visiting classrooms in an effort to develop schedules for next school year.  Individual appointments will follow with students as we further develop these schedules for the 2020-2021 school year.  This year the district has implemented an online course request process

We currently have students involved in the Extended Semester Program.  This 8 day intensive course allows students who failed a core class with a 50-59% the opportunity to improve their grade.  We are also expecting that a summer school program will be available at several high schools in Anchorage in late May and early June.  Our goal is to encourage students to pass all of their courses, but if they fall behind, to given them options to recover these course.
 
Our Academic English Learners Program will be conducting ACCESS testing on February 4th and 5th.  If your student is in this program and if you have any questions on this testing, please contact Regina Lucero at lucero_regina@asdk12.org .  
 
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your students’ academic progress, please contact your students’ counselor or give me a call at 742 2711.
