Well, here we are back at school. It seems the older I get the faster time seems to fly. I hope you all had a nice summer and are ready to get back into the swing of things.
I just wanted to give you an idea about a couple of upcoming events for your student at EMS.
Announcements will be made in the near future promoting the Tiger Ambassdor Program. Interested 7th graders will need to see me in order to pick up an application. Grades, attendance, discipline and the application will all be taken into consideration. 7th grade students chosen to be Tiger Ambassadors will attend Peer Mediation Training . These students will assist the counselor’s office in minor conflicts that occur between students. They will also assist with Open House, New Student Orientation and Peer Mentoring for new students who transfer to EMS during the school year.
An Inclusion activity will be presented to all 7th graders. The purpose of the training is to promote inter-group relations. It empowers students not only to practice, but also to promote respect for diversity in the school and their community.
If you ever have a question or concern please do not hesitate to contact me at 794-4139.
