Veterans Day, School Store, Stakeholder Survey

We hope you’re all enjoying that extra hour of sleep as much as we are. Veterans Day is this Thursday, and we’ll be holding an open concert that night. Check below for details, thank you to our veterans for their service and sacrifice!

We are also happy to announce that our school apparel store is now open. Information can also be found below.

Veterans Day Concert Thursday at 7 pm

The Elk Ridge Middle School Veterans Day Concert will be held on November 11th at 7 PM. Everyone is invited to attend. We would like to extend a special invitation to any current and former servicemen and women. If you attend we would be honored if you would wear your service uniform to the concert.

This Veterans Day Concert will feature the Advanced Band, Orchestra, Choir, and Dance students. On the off chance we run out of seats, we will also be streaming the concert live. The link will be posted on the school website the day of the concert.

We are holding this concert as a show of gratitude and appreciation for all those who serve our country, as a way to honor those who died serving this country, and as a sign of support and good will for those who will serve this country in the future.

Please join us in wearing red, white, and blue all day on November 11th and especially to the concert. Thank you for your continued support of the ERMS Performing Arts Department.

Thank you,

Mr. Goodrich, Mrs. McDermott, Mr. Lyon, Mrs. Giove and the ERMS faculty and Administration

School Store

If you want Elk Ridge merchandise, you can visit this link any time from now until November 24th. The store is run by Marchant Design and Elk Ridge does not benefit from your purchase in any way.

Stakeholder Survey

You should have received a survey at the email address listed in Skyward. Please know we take the results of the survey very seriously in our ongoing efforts to improve the quality of every aspect of our school from communication to instruction. Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback! Students will also get the chance over the next week to take the survey.

(The Skyward conference scheduler will be open until Nov 12th to make appointments.)  PCCR appointments are available Nov 1 – Nov 23 during school hours. Evening hours are available on Wed, Nov 17 and Thurs, Nov 18 (4:00-6:00 pm). If none of the available times work for you, you may contact your counselor to schedule a different time.
