April showers bring May Flowers and much, much MORE!

April at EME is a time for fun in the sun or rain, live animal demonstrations, UIL competitions, weather discussions, surprise assembly, EMS Reading Festival and Earth Day celebrations! EME won the book donation contest for the district and will have a surprise TCU assembly on April 5 featuring the TCU mascot and cheerleaders! April 10th is EMS-ISD's Reading Festival at our local high schools; students will enjoy many activities and receive free books.The Fort Worth Nature Center will be bringing in skunks (deskunked), alligators, and snacks throughout the month for our learners to explore. Students will also be exploring life cycles with butterflies and mealworms. Storm Chasers will be here on April 21 to discuss weather and safety procedures with the students as we celebrate Earth Day (all day) at EME with a variety of activities.

Eagles will be competing in our local UIL competition with learners from EMS-ISD campuses and White Settlement ISD on April 4 and April 8. We wish each of our learners “Good Luck” in their chosen area. Eagles, you will SOAR!
