    Classroom Updates

    Mrs. Bowman's honors ELA class will be performing talk show interviews based on the two novels that they read - Jade Green and Treasure Island. The "EMS Talk Show" will take place on Wed, November 14 at 1:00 in the media center. Parents are invited to come and be part of our audience!

     

    Reminders

    EMS Parent Workshop Night will be November 29th from 5:30-7pm. This night will consist of a rotation of three workshops; one will focus on how parents can help their students succeed in English Language Arts and Bookworms, a second workshop will focus on how parents can help their students succeed in Math, and a third workshop will focus on bullying awareness. These workshops were suggestions collected from parent feedback forms at our Open House in September. Each workshop will  be about 30 minutes long and will be presented 3 times throughout the night 5:30, 6:00 and 6:30. You can come at any time and still attend a workshop of your choice!
