Whew…thought we were going to be snowed in forever! Actually, I love the snow and enjoyed the days with my children. But as we know, all good things must come to an end, and since I am not excited about the thought of spending the Fourth of July still at school… I am glad we’re back!
A few important things:
The Chili Cook-off will be rescheduled. We are looking at combining it with Social Studies night in March. More info to come.
Parent conferences are going to be held NEXT WEEK. Expect to see conference sign up sheets coming home with your child.
We are waiting to hear about MAKE-UP days. As it stands, we will add 20 minutes to the school day as well as an extra day at the end of the year. This is subject to change as the State BOE will meet this week. More info to come.
8th Grade Parents and Students will have a meeting Tuesday (2/18) at 6pm in the EJCHS Auditorium to discuss High School registration and the Career Pathways offered by the High School.
Beginning at the end of this week, and into next week, 8th graders (with the help of high school counselors and administrators) will be registering for ELECTIVES for next year. Their ACADEMIC classes are being determined now by their classroom teachers.
Next week is FFA week! Please support EJMS FFA by participating in Dress-Up days next week!
Monday – Moo Moo Day (Dress like a cow!)
Tuesday – No dress up (Due to SACS visit to the school)
Wednesday – Farmer Wednesday
Thursday – Twin Thursday
