From the Middle EMS and ELA

News from the Principal, May 18, 2021

Hello Parents and Families,

We are in our final days of school for the 20-21 school year. We have nearly made it to the finish line in what has proved to be an absolute marathon of a year. BUT...there is so much good that has come out of this year. In the last few weeks, in meeting with teachers to reflect on their year and set goals for next year, again and again teachers have shared amazing stories of resiliency and hard work happening in all our classrooms. Our student are AMAZING, and so are all our families and parents! Thank you!

~Annessa Hart, Principal

We are in need of YOUR VOICE as we prepare for our May 19th Middle School Family Event.

Our event is all about COMMUNITY, and you are a very important part of our school community. We truly want voices from all throughout our community represented, which is why we are asking you to share your experiences.

We would love to display pictures of families from our community as well as brief stories or poetry, or even small pieces of art that reflect our families and community. This piece should represent you--parents, guardians, caretakers--of our middle school kids.

Please submit your creative piece to by May 15th.

You can also bring your creative piece to the event and add it to the display that night.

Here's an example from one of our very own EMS teachers who also lives in Englewood.
