We would like to congratulate the Ellender Community on maintaining a B School Performance Score based on last year’s student performance. This success shows what is possible when parents, students, and school staff all work together, even during the most challenging of times. Please continue to support and encourage your child to do their best each and every day as we move closer to being an A rated school. Thank you for your continued support of EMHS!

A message from Mr. Pellegrin, the new principal of EMHS to the community, parents, students, teachers and staff members:

I would like to introduce/reintroduce myself to the Ellender community:

A few things about me:

- 27 years in Terrebonne Parish and I have served in many capacities throughout my career (Principal, Assistant Principal, Master Teacher, Teacher, Coach, Club Sponsor).

- Taught or been an administrator in each of our 4 public high schools including a second stint at ST and now Ellender.

- Relevant trainings and experiences include:

o Masters +30 degree in education

o National Board Certified teacher

o National Institute for School Leaders certification.

- Core beliefs

o Every student can be successful when they are connected to and invested in their learning. This requires us to foster supportive relationships with students / parents along with providing meaningful learning in the classroom and through our extracurricular programs. Preparing all students for success beyond a high school diploma is the goal.

o I believe in open/productive communication and consider myself to be fair, consistent, collaborative, hardworking, and someone with high expectations for all (students, staff, and school leadership). As we open school and through our interactions you will see these beliefs embedded in everything that we do.

I am looking forward to this year and can't wait to meet all of you!

We are in the process of looking for a school crossing guard. If you are someone you know is interested, please click the link to see the application and qualifications. Thanks!
