Welcome Back

It gives us great pleasure to welcome back our 8th graders, and welcome our new 7th graders. EMS promotes a caring and earnest family atmosphere. We are fortunate to have outstanding educators that make all of our children their first priority. Over the past two years our student body has been responsible for a number of admirable causes. We are excited to see what our kids present to the school and community this year.

Cycle & Elective Classes

During the 2015-2016 school year EMS implemented a new schedule. The schedule provided us with an opportunity to present our students with new, rigorous, and exciting cycle and elective classes. For the 2016-2017 School year we have 2 new Performing Arts electives, and we have created a 7th grade STEAM cycle class.

Take a look at the video below to see what our kids are doing in some of our cycle and elective classes.

The faculty and staff at EMS would like to invite all of our parents and guardians to Back to School Night. This year’s Back to School Night will take place on Wednesday, September 28. The program will start promptly at 7:00 in the EMS auditorium. Later this week, a detailed letter will be available on the website, as well as our Facebook and Twitter accounts.

EMS Clubs and Sports

EMS offers a variety of clubs and activities to our students. A club fair is scheduled for Thursday and Friday, 9/22 & 9/23. The club fair will take place in the cafe during lunch periods. Students will be informed about all of our clubs and have an opportunity to sign up for clubs they are interested in. Check out the link below for more info.
