Happy October!

As we begin the month of October, we wanted to take a minute to express how proud we are of our EHMS family! We are truly off to an AMAZING start to the 22-23 school year. Across the building, students are engaged in meaningful tasks that reflect learning and growth. Students and teachers continue to build positive and meaningful relationships. Routines have been established, and PBIS expectations continue to foster a climate conducive to learning. This month brings TONS of activities--academic, athletic, and extra-curricular! This newsletter will highlight the important dates for you and your student as we prepare for another great month. Please reach out to our main office if there is anything you need.
