MS Players Club Presents…

Midsummer!

The MS Players club presents two great plays in one evening!

A Midsummer Vacation Nightmare by Tim Kochenderfer

and

A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare

Their third annual production will be performed January 26th at 7:00 in the EHS Auditorium.

In A Midsummer Vacation Nightmare, a pair of star crossed lovers attempt to find a way to transfer out of Athens High School before the principal forces them date other people! All the while a janitor with magical powers and some mischievous fairies make trouble for a group of students trying to mount a school play!

Followed by A Midsummer Nights Dream, Shakespeare’s most popular comedy! Four youths flee into a magical wood to find their true love. Along the way they encounter warring factions of fairies and slow witted craftsmen. It is a classic tale of love, magic and mystery.

This evening of comedy and drama is our biggest yet!

40+ amazing performers, will be performing these two plays back to back with a 15 minute intermission.

Come out and lend your support to our young and growing MS Drama Program.

Tickets are general admission and can be purchased at the door starting at 6:00pm. $5 Students/Seniors and $10 for Adults.

Create A SchoolBee Profile

NEW ON-LINE DIRECTORY

The EMS PTA is in the process of implementing a new on-line student directory called SchoolBee. Some of you may already be familiar with this as the Eastchester elementary schools each introduced it in the previous school year. The EMS PTA would now like to extend SchoolBee to the Middle School as well. In order to get the EMS SchoolBee site up and running, we are asking that you provide some basic contact information. This will allow us to populate the directory and send you a username and password to login.

 Once logged in, you can access your profile and select what information you would like to make available for the directory. If you are a PTA member, you will have access to the full directory, in addition to your own profile. Please consider joining the EMS PTA if you haven’t already done so.

 Please click on the link below to access the form to fill out. We will need one form per student so if you have more than one child in the Middle School, please fill out a form for each student. For those of you who are already in SchoolBee, please still fill out the form so that we have up-to-date records.

COMPLETE THE SCHOOLBEE FORM NOW!
