Enfield High School Students and Families,

 

We hope all our students and families are enjoying these beautiful summer days!  The faculty at Enfield High is eager to welcome our new freshman class and returning students. 

 

Our team at EHS is continuously working to build a positive school culture where students feel welcome, safe, challenged, and supported.  One method for nurturing a positive school culture is to cultivate respectful and appropriate relationships among students and staff through mentoring opportunities.  Research shows that students who feel connected with at least one staff member at school are more likely to be successful.   Keeping this in mind, this year we will pilot a new mentoring program where all students will be assigned a mentor faculty member. Approximately once a month, this group will meet to check-in, review grades, set goals, and discuss resources available. Additionally, we will use this time to explicitly teach strategies to support our students’ academic, social, and emotional development.  Freshman will receive added support as part of this program to ensure a smooth transition to high school. We hope these steps will help to ensure that ALL students feel connected and supported at EHS.

 

In December of this year, a New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) accreditation team will visit our school to gather information about the quality of our school resources, facilities, curriculum, instruction, assessment, culture, and climate.  This process involves professionals from other districts visiting our school to identify areas of strength and areas in need of improvement.  The results of their visit will be shared with the public and will inform future goal-setting and action plans. 

 

One area where we are always looking to improve is communication with our families.  This summer we reorganized our website to make it more user-friendly.  I encourage you to visit our website http://enfieldhigh.sharpschool.com/ for updates on accessing PowerSchool and other general information.   We also plan to continue to use our school’s Twitter feed to keep you updated on school news and activities.  Please follow EHS at @EnfieldHS1 to learn of the latest school news and the district Twitter handle @EnfieldPS for district news and notifications.   Finally, School Messenger is a great way to get important school and district updates related to school cancellations, safety issues, and other notifications. You can sign up for email and phone notifications from School Messenger by visiting the district website: http://www.enfieldschools.org/parent_support/school_messenger/.  If you are interested in becoming more involved in our school community, I invite you to join our Parent Advisory Group.  We will meet in the EHS Library on Wednesday, October 3 at 6:00 p.m.   Please RSVP by September 15th on our website by visiting the Parent Advisory link under “About EHS.” 

 

The team at EHS hopes that all our students and their families have a safe and enjoyable end to the summer. We look forward to seeing all our students on Wednesday, August 29th.

 

Sincerely,

  

Erin E. Clark

 

Principal
