Weekly Knight Notes

Week of 5-2-16

May? 20 days left?

Wow, May and the end of the year crept up on us very quickly. Amazing to know we only have 20 days left of this school year. We have a lot of great activities planned for the students to end the year. Enjoy the remaining time with your kids and help them remember a great middle school year!

8th Grade Goodbye dance

Our end of the year dance will be this Friday form 6:00-8:00. If you are able to chaperon please let Bill know that you plan on attending.


Collaboration will be as a whole group in the library. We will continue fine tuning our balloon vehicles and testing them!

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

Clearly a week is not enough to show you our appreciation for everything you do in your career!

However, as a small token of our appreciation we will have treats and snacks in the lounge all week. Friday there will also be a hot dog bar for lunch, so bring your appetite.

6th grade transition

Our 6th grade transition begins this week as a group of staff members will be visiting the 5 elementary buildings. Also on Thursday is our 6th grade parent scheduling meeting. This is always a great week to welcome our newest Knights to the building!

Also, 7th grade teachers, be on the lookout for a scheduling meeting sometime this week during NE. I will want to talk with the 7th graders about the end of the school year, next year, and begin getting their schedule sheets filled out.

Staff Updates

Interviews will begin this week for our open social studies position.

Our open math position is actually already closed! We will be welcoming back Janelle Foster to the middle school from Wayne Center. I am very excited to have her experience, work ethic, and passion back at the building.

And I am excited to announce we will be hiring an additional full time music teacher for next school year. I will be offering the position to someone tomorrow morning. This brings the possibility of additional electives such as Drama and Intro to Guitar. This person is replacing our open music position from Jim retiring.


ENMS Athletics!

This last week and the upcoming weeks have been outstanding for our student athletes! Our sports teams continue to excel in all areas! Our girls track has been phenomenal! This last Wednesday proved to show the continued success as the girls easily walked away with a victory over Dekalb and New Haven. We are still waiting for scores for today’s Invitational at NH, but they are picked to be towards the top. Our boys are extremely competitive and were just behind Dekalb in Wednesday’s meet. We have an exciting week as track will be wrapping up on Saturday, but not before hitting the road for 2 more meetings. Good Luck to both the boys and girls as they head to:

Monday – Track at Westview with Dekalb starting at 4:45.

Wednesday – Track at Summitt with MC starting at 4:45 or as soon as they can get started

Saturday – Track at NHMLC NEW HAVEN for a 10 am start time.

Soccer has been non stop the last couple weeks and this week will be no different with 3 games in the week. The girls prove to show improvement in all positions. The defense has held strong with low scoring games vs Summitt and Maple Creek. The boys are extending their winning season as they took a victory over Summitt 4-1 and Indian Springs 6-1. Soccer will continue to play solid team work as they play:

Monday – Home vs. Norwell 5:00 start

Wednesday – Home vs Maple Creek 5:00 start

Thursday – Home vs. Leo 5:00 start

Golf will also continue strong play this season as they host Fremont and Prairie Heights on Thursday.

Other activities for this week: Good Bye Dance is Friday May 6th from 6-8

May 9-12 – is Cheer try outs at ENMS from 3-4:45.

Good Luck to all the Knights in action this week!
