Time to Check Grades!

Parents and Students,

We're over half way through Quarter 2 and the semester ends 12/22. Students' academic progress is always available to view on PowerSchool and in-progress academic standing. Grades are only final for the classes in which the term has ended. The goal of this communication is to create additional open communication between students, teachers, and parents before grades become finalized. Each student will receive a report card and GPA at the end of each semester.

Athletic Events - Spectator Reminder

Students must have an adult with them during ETMS athletic events.

The exceptions are Bison Fan Days:

  • 12/12 - Wrestling
  • 1/12 - Girls Basketball
  • 1/17 - Boys Basketball

More information coming soon!

7th & 8th Grade Winter Dance


  • Friday, December 2
  • Students can only attend during for their grade-level time.

    • 7th Grade 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm drop off and pick up in car rider lane
    • 8th Grade 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm drop off in bus lane, pick up in car rider lane

  • The cost is $5 the week of (purchased during lunch), $7 at the door.
  • Tickets and student ID's will be required to enter the dance. See the front office if you've lost your ID.
  • A photo booth is a possibility, and a small cash fee will be required for photo booth use.
  • Free snacks will be provided (donations needed - see link to sign up and donate).
  • Family volunteers are needed at the snack table - sign up here.


  • Only students who are enrolled at ETMS may attend the dance or be on school grounds.
  • No limousines.
  • Nice school or dressy clothes are appropriate for all students (jeans or slacks - no shorts, collared shirts or sweaters, dresses should have sleeves or two straps). Although ETMS recognizes the value of allowing individual student self-expression, the dance is an extension of the school day and student handbook policies still apply. Students who violate these guidelines will not be allowed to enter the dance.
  • Students must be in attendance for no less than the last 4 periods of the school day of the dance. Students may not have been in ISS or OSS the day of the event.
  • Students must meet academic and student conduct eligibility requirements outlined in our ETMS student handbook to attend the dance (based on 1st quarter grades).
  • Student behavior will be expected to reflect participation in a school event. Inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated, and discipline consequences and removal from the dance will occur.


Clubs - All Grades

We have a variety of clubs that students are able to participate in. Join one or more!
