We have now officially entered spring! With that comes a variety of activities that we very much hope our parents and community are informed of and a part of.
  • 8th Grade Parents and Students: There's a mandatory meeting tomorrow for the Arizona field trip. We have been consistently tracking grades, attendance, and behavior to determine student eligibility. Please ask your students about these three criteria and don't forget, you can call/email the student's advisory teacher for updates!

  • We are holding our 3rd annual Public Lottery this Thursday at 5:00 pm. While applications are pouring in, we are creating extra space to not only accommodate all students that have applied but a few extra. To our new parents that have applied, your child's space will be guaranteed come Thursday, so if you have friends, cousins, nephews, nieces, etc. who would be a great fit for EPLA, please encourage them to come take a tour and apply! We have some extra space created just for them!

  • 8th Grade Field Trip to Hueco Tanks is this Friday! Congrats to the group of students who earned their way to this wonderful trip to a world renowned geological site that hosts thousands upon thousands of international visitors every year! 
As we approach our May STAAR assessments, please help keep our students accountable for their assignments and encourage our young scholars to keep trying their all! We are in the final stretch towards those assessments so daily encouragement goes a long way! Please feel free to call advisory teachers and our principal if you need any further information or support!
