Message From the Principal

Happy Youth Day!


Titan families, I invite you to come to walk with me on Saturday, October 13th at 9:30 am at the Youth Day Parade! The Youth Day float was a collaborative effort coordinated by the PTSA Chair, Mrs. Tracy Murphy, and with the expertise of construction teacher, Mr. Dan Moffit, and art teacher, Ms. Laurie Powell. I am proud to say our float was constructed and crafted completely by Elkins Pointe students. Mr. Kelly Ross from the Dads Club has volunteered to pull the trailer tomorrow. A special thank you to the Sturrock family for lending us their trailer. This project could not have happened without PTSA supplying the materials and parents donating candy.


Thank you all supporters of this mission to bring the Youth Day float to fruition. I will be on Mimosa Blvd. with my Titan blue spirit-wear. Our float is going to be so amazing!


Sincerely,


Kindra L. Smith, Ed.S

Principal

Elkins Pointe Middle School

Let the Rhythm Connect Us!

If your child attended ask them which musical instrument was the most unusual!


The Rhythm of a Culture: Dave Holland (pictured top left) explored the culture, history, and geography of Africa with this hands-on, interactive sessions! Each student was provided with an instrument and guided through a ‘rhythm-based experience’. EPMS students were treated to one-of-a-kind instruments, learned folk songs and heard folktales - all while drumming! Designed for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders studying African influences on the Spanish and French languages.


Thank you to Profe Crowe, Profe Bolson, Profe Mejia, and Monsieur Mendy for bringing this hands-on workshop to their Language Students.

Way to go!
  • In 1st place, Ms. Rankin’s WINN has donated over 60 pairs of shoes!! Ms. Rankin’s WINN has won a Krispy Kreme doughnut party and Ms. Rankin has won a Starbucks gift card. Way to go!”

Holocaust Exhibit - 10/16-10/26

The 6th-grade Social Studies classes will be hosting a Holocaust Museum Exhibition in the Media Center. All are invited to come by to see the artifacts created by our students. The shoes collected via the Jr. Beta Shoe Drive will be on display to mirror the shoe exhibit in the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC.

The EPMS Orchestra concert will be on Thursday, October 18th. It will start at 7 pm in the EPMS Gym. Students participating in the concert should arrive at 6:30 for tuning and warm up. The concert is free and open to the public.

BIG THANK YOU PROJECT - EPMS Service Project for the US Military - 10/19

300+ "Thank You" letters are requested from EPMS students to deployed military members this holiday season. The radio station Q100 and the Bert Show collect handwritten thank you letters each year thanking the military for protecting our country. These letters are delivered to every serviceman/woman who will spend Thanksgiving/Christmas/Etc. away from their family and friends. I think it is important for students to learn to give back to the community, so I am encouraging every student to write at least one thank you letter!


Requirements for "Thank You" Letter:

  • Should be 1 paragraph with 5 or more sentences or longer.
  • Encouraging words and thanks for their service to our country. Nothing negative - ONLY positive!
  • Draw a color picture. Here are some ideas: American Flag, Thanksgiving scene, Holiday scene, nature, a picture of your pet, or any picture you think will show patriotism or gratitude.
  • NO PERSONAL INFORMATION! First name ONLY! Students can write that they attend Elkins Pointe Middle School, but should not include their personal address or their last name for safety reasons. Many years, I have had students receive a letter back from their service member.
  • Letters on lined-paper (i.e. binder paper) or copy/printer paper (white bond paper). The letters should not consist of glue/glitter/staples, any picture taped on. The letters should not be on construction paper and do not need to be placed in an envelope. All letters should be decorated with pens, colored pencils, markers, or crayons!
  • Handwritten written letters. NOT typed on the computer.


Miss Rankin has set a goal of collecting 300 letters! All letters need to be turned in by Friday, October 19th! Thank you so much for supporting my goal of teaching students the importance to give back to the community this year! Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Best, Ms. Missy Rankin, 6th Grade Math Teacher

THINGS ABOUT Health & Wellness

What is Dysautonomia?

Dysautonomia is an umbrella term used to describe several different medical conditions that cause a malfunction of the Autonomic Nervous System. The Autonomic Nervous System controls the "automatic" functions of the body that we do not consciously think about, such as heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, dilation and constriction of the pupils of the eye, kidney function, and temperature control. People living with various forms of dysautonomia have trouble regulating these systems, which can result in lightheadedness, fainting, unstable blood pressure, abnormal heart rates, and malnutrition.


Dysautonomia is not rare. Over 70 million people worldwide live with various forms of dysautonomia. People of any age, gender or race can be impacted. There is no cure for any form of dysautonomia at this time, but Dysautonomia International is funding research to develop better treatments, and hopefully someday a cure for each form of dysautonomia. Despite the high prevalence of dysautonomia, most patients take years to get diagnosed due to a lack of awareness amongst the public and within the medical profession.
