Band Concert Tuesday!
These incredible musicians have had quite a week! When they arrived to school Monday, they expected to be in their band room, ready to work hard for Tuesday's concert. They were greeted with some broken pipes and a flooded band room! That didn't stop the amazing Mrs. Withers! Musicians moved to the small gym at the beginning of the week, practicing hard, while our custodial team was drying carpets and assessing damage. With all the team effort, musicians were back in the band room by Thursday and are ready to WOW you on Tuesday night at their concert. Please join us at 6pm on Tuesday 3/7 for some wonderful music.

Bullying & Harassment
EGMS has zero tolerance for bullying and harassment—regardless of where it occurs or how severe the offense. Everyone deserves to feel safe at school, and students are expected to treat each other respectfully and civilly. Students are expected to refrain from bringing online interpersonal conflicts (Instagram, Snapchat, etc.) to school; however, such events should be brought to the attention of school personnel in order to support prompt resolution. Incidents of harassment, bullying or threatening behavior will result in disciplinary action. Bullying that involves threats may result in a Risk Assessment Screener with potential referral to Deschutes County Mental Health.
What is being done at EGMS to address bullying?
2. From our investigation we will determine if it is bullying or a conflict between students.
3. Bullying is not tolerated and will be consequenced accordingly.
4. Conflicts are common among middle school students. Students are learning how to navigate relationships as much as they are learning school subjects. We like to take a restorative approach to conflicts and have students sit together with an adult and work out the issue and move on from it when it's possible. There are consequences if conflicts get inappropriate or physical in nature.
5. Counselors are teaching "bully proofing" lessons to each grade level this month.
Spring Sports (track & soccer) Registration is OPEN in FamilyID.
Golf Registration is OPEN in FamilyID and you MUST also register through the PGA LINK provided in the FamilyID registration. Golf requires the 2 registrations to be complete. Elton Gregory will NOT be taking payments for Golf, all golf payments will go through the PGA LINK or Eagle Crest. Info is on the PGA link.
All athletes will need a current sports physical on file. Sports physicals are good for 2 years from the original date they are done. Example: If a sports physical is done 2/23/23 it will be good until 2/23/25.
Practices for Track & Soccer will start April 3, after Spring Break
*Track: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday 2:30-4:15 / NO WEDNESDAY PRACTICE
*Soccer: Days of practice to be determined, 2:30-4:00
Practices for Golf will start in May. More details to come.
HIGH SCHOOL SPORTING EVENTS
Parents and guardians of middle school students who wish to attend high school athletic contests:
Middle school students attending high school games must attend with an adult. Middle school students need to sit in the stands during games. High schools do not have the staffing to supervise middle school students. Just like all Bend/LaPine high schools, Redmond high schools believe that middle school students can successfully achieve this goal. However, in the event that middle school students cannot stay in the stands, they will be required to sit with the adult who brought them to the game or be required to leave. Please help your student enjoy the game by monitoring them while on high school property.
