Happy Labor Day! I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend and took some time to spend it with the ones that matter!  It is hard to believe that August is gone!

We are jumping in to GAA’s this week.  I went to orientation this past Friday, and we are set to get started.  We also have to participate in SLO pre-testing this week in reading literacy.  This a state requirement that is new this school year.  We will participate in post-testing in May of 2015.  SLO testing is not as involved as our GAA.

Upcoming this week:

****On Friday, September 5th, EJMS will have our first pep rally from 1:15pm to 1:45pm recognizing all fall sport participants. The 8th grade students will return to the main campus at 1:00pm and will remain at the main campus for the remainder of the day.


All 8th grade students will be released at the end of the day (bus and car riders) from the main campus. If they need to be picked up after 1:00pm on Friday, September 5th, they will need to be picked up from the main campus.


If you have any questions, please contact the school at 706.423.5105 706.423.5105.
