November ERMS Family Update

11/26/2019

Enjoy This Time

We have completed 14 weeks of the 2019-2020 school year and planning is already beginning for the 2020-2021 year! Enjoy this time with family, eat too much, recharge your batteries, and we will return for three weeks until the next break.

WIN Time

We have completed our first cycle of our intervention time at ERMS! What was Connect last year is now called WIN (What I Need) Time. ERMS will utilize this time for academic needs, social emotional learning, and enrichment. WIN Time will take place on Tuesday and Thursday following second hour. Academic needs will be focused on intervention which is assisting students in specific areas and extension which is an opportunity to challenge and stretch students academically. Social Emotional Learning (SEL- because educators love acronyms) will focus on self awareness, self management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making. There are many ways schools in our area implement and teach these competencies, WIN Time will be our vehicle for delivery. If you are curious about SEL, the link below is a great resource for parents and educators. Enrichment activities will be days designated throughout our calendar in which we just have fun with kids. Staff in the building will be facilitating these enrichment sessions and these could include, but are not limited to open gym time, yoga, painting, cup stacking, free drawing, cooking, photography, clubs, coding, and whatever our students are interested in. We are excited about what this time can do for our student growth.
