Up 2 You Club GIVING Back to Teachers

A huge thank you to our Up 2 You Club members for their generosity and loving spirit as they provided teachers with A Night of Thanks. This is a determined group of students who are looking to make the world a better place!

Attendance Matters

Here are some stats for the end of the 1st Semester:

Students with 6 or more absences = 192

Students with 10 or more absences = 73


Our school and district CCRPI score is affected by the number of student absences.

As of the 2015-2016 school year, the percent of students who have 6 or more absences is part of the formula that determines our CCRPI score.

Student attendance is just one way parents can help EPMS be successful! Attendance Matters!

#RESPECTEAST POSITIVE BEHAVIOR INCENTIVE PROGRAM

A new behavior incentive program will begin once students return to school on January 5th. Our #respecteast campaign will kick off as we begin to look for, acknowledge, and celebrate students who display positive, influential behaviors through a respect of self, others, and property!

Be sure you ask your students about it!
