ERHS Calendar - Week of 10/2/19

Dear ERHS Community,

 

Thank you to everyone who was able to make our Curriculum Night this past week. I hope it enabled you to have an opportunity to learn more about what is happening in each class and for you gain greater perspective into our school-wide goals for the year and beyond. If you were unable to meet with a specific teacher/staff member, please feel free to contact them by email or by calling the school. All teachers have a half hour of time set aside for professional responsibilities, usually in the afternoon, 2:20-2:50pm or 3:05-3:35pm (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday), depending on their teaching program. Please contact teachers to set up a time to meet if needed. 

 

As we continue to share opening year compliance materials with the school community, please refer to this link for the DOE’s policy on cell phones. Also, please review this link for ERHS’ policy on personal electronics. As we have reminded students this year, phones and other electronics should be out of sight in the building, unless being used for school matters. Some teachers are asking all students to place their phones in their backpacks during class, to lessen the temptation to check them. As we all navigate the effective use of technology, we ask that everyone in the community be mindful to these policies and work with us to ensure a safe and non-disruptive learning environment.  

 

Last week’s Club Fair was a huge success!  Thank you to all the members and advisors who admirably represented the variety of clubs in our school and a shout out to the Student Government leadership who organized this successful event. All students are encouraged to join and commit to extracurricular clubs that are offered at ERHS. 

 

This week we welcome prospective students and their families for our first Open House on Wednesday 10/2. There are three sessions, 4:30pm, 5:30pm, 6:30pm. If you are interested in volunteering, contact the following people, for students, Layla A., President of the ElRo Ambassadors and parents/guardians, Ms. Moore at zmoore@erhsnyc.net. Thank you for your support! There is also another Borough High School Fair this coming weekend in Chelsea at the Bayard Rustin Educational Complex on Saturday and Sunday. Contact Ms. Moore or Layla if interested. Thank you to all our volunteers. 

 

In October, we will honor Hispanic Heritage Month (9/15-10/15) with special announcements/activities during the week of 10/7 and we will have a special assembly for all grades on Tuesday 10/15 during 3rd and 4th periods.  

 

Good luck to all our fall sports teams as the Fall PSAL season is in full swing. The teams entered  the final weekend of September with overall strong starts, including our soccer teams (Girls 4-1 and Boys 4-0 records) and Girls Tennis Team (3-2).  Our Girls Volleyball team has started the year with an 0-2 record and hope to get in the win column shortly. Good luck to all our student athletes who are participating in fall sports. Please visit the school website for information on all PSAL news or click here for school’s PSAL site. 

 

Over the weekend, Mr. Anderson and his wife welcomed their son, Teodoro Anderson, to their family. Please join me in congratulating him and his family on the arrival of Teo! Mr. Anderson will be on paternity leave until mid-November. In his absence, Mr. Russell Olesh will be leading his music classes and Ms. Tracey Jenkins will help facilitate advisory classes.  


This week in advisory...

 

9th, 10th & 11th - Values Circle

12th - Values & College Housing 

 

Students, please let your parents/guardians know about what’s happening in advisory each week.  

 

Wishing everyone a great upcoming week. Wishing all that celebrate Rosh Hashanah a Happy New Year!

 

Sincerely,

 

Mr. Saliani

Principal

ElRo Corner 

 

Dear ERHS Community,

 

Earlier this week on Tuesday, Student Government had the pleasure to hold the club fair. We saw a great turnout and are glad that the club fair was able to bring attention to many clubs. Students had the opportunity to explore the many programs our school has to offer and allow club leaders the chance to promote their clubs in hopes of adding new members. In Student Government this year, we are focusing on establishing a sense of unity and communication to the ELRO community and celebrate any differences that exist between us in order to come together as a student body. We plan to host many events throughout the year to unify the school. As far as October we plan to have movie nights after school in the gym, and of course our school-wide spirit week that takes place the last week of October. 

 

Additionally, we are committed to creating a school store and allowing students to have the opportunity to represent ELRO with their clothes. We plan to increase elro pride through this and have a goal of increasing game attendance. 

 

Elections for freshman president are according in the following weeks. The students will be campaigning through the school from October 2-9, with a debate on Monday the 7th and the final election on Wednesday the 4th. 

 

Your student government officers for this year are as follows:

 

Nicole R.  - Student Body President 

Georgia B. - Vice Student Body President

Shayan R. - 12th Grade President 

Mackenzie C. - 11th Grade President 

Giorgianna R. and Kristina P. - 10th Grade Presidents 

 

To run an effective Student Government this year, we have added Elected Committees to productively organize the work we do. 

 

Committee leaders:

Fundraising-Julianna P., Melanie D.

Public Relations- Jesse D., Rohan S.

Events- Chloe H., Antalya L.

School Store- Henri S., Maddie M.

 

Emails us at studentgovernment@erhsnyc.net for any questions 

 

Thank you and looking forward to a great year, 

 

Student Government

The Renovated Home is a design and build firm that works in high-end residential projects all over NYC.  If you have any interest in the renovation or restoration of buildings, staging homes for photo shoots, or learning about the various trades necessary for renovation, this could be an amazing opportunity for you!

 

Apply for the CUE Teen Collective - Applications due September 28th at 4:00pm

The CUE Teen Collective is a free, year-long after school program designed for NYC high school students who are passionate about visual culture and interested in exploring careers in the fine arts. Participants meet on Wednesday afternoons from October through May to investigate the contemporary art world, develop professional skills, and produce artwork for a group exhibition in CUE’s gallery space. With behind-the-scenes access to the New York art world, the CTC demystifies career paths available to students, while inspiring them to develop their own personal artistic voices. During talks with artists and curators, trips to gallery and museum shows, visits to art fairs, and hands-on studio sessions, students will have the opportunity to ask questions of working arts professionals about their careers and practices, learning about various approaches to a sustainable and rewarding career in the arts.
