California Healthy Kids Survey

Every two years, school districts in California are encouraged to participate in the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS).  The CHKS is a comprehensive youth health risk and resilience data collection service for school districts sponsored by the California Department of Education. The CHKS grew out of the California Department of Education’s commitment to promoting the academic success, well–being, and positive development of all youth.

The CHKS is given to 7th, 9th and 11th grade students and contains questions focusing on resiliency, protective factors, risk behaviors and school climate. Data from the California Healthy Kids Survey provides valuable information to guide efforts to reduce student health risk behaviors and build schools that are drug–free, safe, and supportive havens for healthy, positive youth development and achievement.

2016-2017 CHKS (District wide)

2018-2019 CHKS (ELH)


Senior Class Updates

Prom is on April 23rd from 6-10 PM at the Rady Shell at Jacobs Park. It will be a fun night and we hope you join us.

Prom tickets are on sale this week in the ASB for $100 for EHS seniors and $110 for guests. The price will increase to $105 beginning next week through April 21. Only students who are not on the Non-Privilege list will be able to attend this event so make sure you continue to check the list to ensure that you are on track to attend.


Graduation is on June 1st at 2:30 PM or 5:00 PM. Students will be able to sign up for a time slot on a first come first served basis via a google form. We will be sending out the link for this form next week.

Graduates will only be allowed four guests. We are not issuing tickets for the event and so guests will need to enter with the graduate in order to attend.

If you have not already done so, contact San Diego Grad Supply at 619-440-5426 for cap and gown needs.

Cap decorations and flower leis will not be permitted during the ceremony. Leis, however, may be presented to graduates after the ceremony.

We are excited to honor our graduates and look forward to a memorable graduation ceremony.

Thank you,

Mrs. Hermosillo and Mrs. Pietila-Wiggs
