Book Fair Rescheduled!

The EMS Annual Book Fair that is listed on the district calendar for Wednesday, May 16 at Barnes & Noble has been cancelled.

The new date is Monday, June 11th at 7:00 pm (at Barnes & Noble).

Family Stem Night is Friday, May 4th

Dear EMS Families,

This is an event for the entire family. We will start the evening with dinner and then families will be led through a STEM exercise. We will build robotic models to understand the anatomy and biomechanics of the human hand. Then, we will conduct trials visualizing data in Excel to generate new ideas for improving it’s performance. For a demonstration of the program look here. There will also be great raffles for tech-inspired games, T-shirts and more!  All free to our school community this night!

This evening is FREE, but we get an accurate count to plan for dinner so we are asking that you register on our Eventbrite page HERE .

We will need some volunteers to ensure this evening runs smoothly so please sign up HERE if you can help.

This evening is sponsored by a grant from National PTA and Microsoft. Looking forward to a fun community evening! See you there!

Cookies! We asked, and your answer was sweet!

Your generosity was so very apparent yesterday as the donations came pouring in for the EMS Staff Appreciation Cookie Extravaganza.  There was an amazing variety and we were able to cover the entire conference table in the staff lounge  as you can see below. The staff was amazed and they asked that we send a huge THANK YOU back to the community.  So THANKS to all our bakers and buyers for making this week extra sweet for the EMS Staff.

Special thanks to Kim Luciano and Sachiko Nanaumi for volunteering for set-up and cookie running and to Jean De Cairano and Sharon Renzo for cookie running.

Thanks to all the families who donated!

Heartfelt appreciation to Mrs. Debra Barrett for her endless support and tireless effort to make our Holiday Book Fair successful.
