Principal's Corner

Getting ready for a New School Year

Welcome back to ERE...the school where learners and leaders shine!  We are working hard to prepare for a new year full of exciting experiences and opportunities for our students and teachers.  In fact, right now we are in the middle of a bathroom remodeling project.  Teams of teachers and local artists are painting and decorating as the "leaderize" our student bathrooms to reflect the positive climate and leadership initiative that we encourage through our Leader in Me process.


I'm getting a few phone calls about this year's dress code.  I am happy to report that our dress code will remain the same as it was last year.  Our dress code policy can be found on the home page of this website using the links on the right side of the page.  School supply lists are updated and can be downloaded by following the link on the left side of the home page.


This year, we'll welcome a new Assistant Principal, Mr. Juan Moreno.  Mr. Moreno comes to us from Spring Creek Elementary and will fill the spot vacated by Ms. Turner when she accepted a promotion to become the new Principal at Big Ridge Elementary.  Mr. Moreno is an experienced educator with a fun personality who also happens to be bilingual.  We're really looking forward to having him join our school this year.


I look forward to seeing you all at Registration on August 8th.  We'll have two sessions again this year: 8:30-11:30am and 5-7pm.  Until then, enjoy the rest of your summer, and feel free to follow us on our new Twitter page.  Our handle is @leadersshine.


Keep on shining,

Mrs. H
