The Eagle Eye: 3/14/2024

Happy Thursday! The latest issue of The Eagle Eye is now available. The Eagle Eye is Eagle Ridge Academy’s translatable community newsletter that is published every other Thursday during the school year. It is a great resource to see important updates and learn what is happening around the school. Here’s a preview of what you’ll find in this week’s Eagle Eye:

  • Message from Executive Director Jason Ulbrich on Digital Literacy. As a Classical school, Eagle Ridge Academy works diligently to ensure the holistic development and well-being of your children. In today’s digital age, we strive to provide a school day that is free of unnecessary screen time. It is essential for us, as parents and educators, to collaborate in the guidance of children as they form the habit of using social media and technology in a healthy manner. Read more inside the issue.
  • Congratulations, February Pillar Award Recipients. The Schools of Logic & Rhetoric hold monthly Pillar Assemblies in which six students from each grade level in the Schools of Logic & Rhetoric are recognized for displaying CIPHER throughout the month. Students are nominated by their teachers. See last month’s recipients inside the issue.
  • Greeters Needed for Gryphon Greeter Program. One year ago, Eagle Ridge Academy launched a pilot program, the Gryphon Greeter Program, as a welcome initiative for families new to Eagle Ridge Academy. It was a tested program to determine if families brand new to the Academy would benefit from having a dedicated ERA parent assigned to them as a liaison and guide. We are looking for 10-15 additional greeters to join our team as we welcome new families for the 2024-25 school year. Learn more about the Gryphon Greeter program and sign up today inside the issue.
  • Order Your 2024 Art Xpo T-Shirt By March 20. It’s time to order your annual Art XPO t-shirt! This year’s design was created by School of Rhetoric senior Jay Jensen. Find out more about the Art Xpo, view this year’s design, and order your shirt inside the issue.
  • ERA PTO Spirit Wear Pop-up Shop Open Online Through March 29. Order your Eagle Ridge Academy PTO spring spirit wear online for two weeks only! Orders will be available for pick-up before the next Spirit Wear Day on April 26. View the 14 available options and order today inside the issue.
