D.E.A.R. Time: Did you know every child enjoys Drop Everything and Read during their language arts block in their classrooms? Please ask your child’s teacher, if you would like more details. This is only one of the many ways we promote reading and vocabulary development at EME.

We need your help, parents! Lately, we have had some scary moments involving children during drop off.

When you drop off your child in the mornings, please adhere to these safety guidelines:

  • Students should exit the vehicle on the side of the sidewalk ONLY.
  • Students should walk into the building.
  • Students should not be left unattended in the front of the school prior to 7:05AM.
  • If you need to get out of your car to unbuckle your child or have a problem which needs to be addressed, please park and walk them to the crosswalk, so they can cross safely.
  • No children should be dropped off in the parking lot at anytime.
  • Handicap Parking is for handicap individuals only.

Thank you for your attention to these safety procedures. Currently, we have 628 students enrolled at EME.


Following spring break, students will be given the chance to "word up" using their "Be Vocabulous" words for the year. The guidelines to "word up" are listed below and will be discussed with students once they return from spring break. Each student will be given the guidelines to share with you. Classroom teachers will be awarding incentive bracelets to students as they "word up" above Level 1: Rookie.
