Our New Crest!

Let the Spirit Fly!! Our New School Song!

Our Eagles truly enjoyed the concert yesterday! We were even given our own school song by William Greenland. A dedication ceremony will be later this year for the song “Let the Spirit Fly!” The song is about resilience – the ability to fly above challenges – like an eagle. It is perfect for ETSS.  Watch for a post of the lyrics and song soon!

FYI: Do you know the motto for ETSS? It is “RISE ABOVE!

The words represent the resiliency of our students to rise above their challenges in order to achieve success at school!

Like an eagle that rises above its prey, our students rise above the difficulties of life to attend, engage, and participate in school!

Support our students and teach them to “RISE ABOVE!”
