During spring semester freshmen in World Studies have been creating National History Day (NHD) Projects. NHD is basically the science fair for History based on a yearly theme. This year's theme was "Communication in History." Students each created a massive research project on a topic of their choosing based on that theme.
The Boettcher Foundation has a tradition of recognizing outstanding teachers who contribute to their students’ success. Each student who makes it to the finalist level of our scholarship application process is asked to nominate a teacher who contributed significantly to their success.
We had an excellent turnout for our virtual practice (P)SAT testing on Friday and our students did very well on their tests!

The experience of practicing helps reduce test anxiety at Erie High School.
