What's Going On in Mr. E's Class and Around CEMS

Week of September 15th - September 19th

We will have a Math Test on Monday on Adding, Subtracting, and Multiplying Decimals.

Your child took a Reading Assessment the first week of school for placement into a WROCK (Writing and Reading on Content Knowledge) class. Classes will be based on reading grade level so your child will be in a class of students who are around the same level. Our classes will range from 2nd grade to college level. These classes will start October 1st. Until then, students are learning about building character, becoming more familiar with middle school, and developing their writing/comprehension skills with their homeroom teacher.

Towards the end of September, students will take a pre-EOG test in both math and reading. It will contain material that they have not learned yet, but will learn this year. More info will be given later.

Athletic Contest begin the week of September 22nd. Coats Erwin fields a boys' soccer team, a volleyball team, and a football team during the fall. Soccer and volleyball will have 6 home games while football will have 3 home games. Encourage your child to come to the home games to get the real middle school experience! All games start at 4:00 and the admission is $4.
