B&N Book Fair A Great Success!

EMS PTA would like to extend our gratitude to Dr. Moran, Mr. Wynne and Mr. Elder for their support to have our first Barnes & Noble Book Fair.  This event was so successful because of the continuous effort and endless enthusiasm of Mrs. Debra Barrett. We are truly thankful!!  A special thank you to Mr. Mark Dodge for making it possible to have our jazz band perform and to the very talented EMS Jazz Band. They sounded amazing!!  Our gratitude to the Eastchester Teachers Association for their generous donation of $100.00 to purchase the lotto tickets and to Claire DeLongchamp for her presentation of the lotto board. It looked incredible!!  B&N gift cards were given from the PTA to our poetry winners. Congratulations!! Your poems were inspiring and well written!  We appreciate the eighth grade National Junior Honor Society students for reading to all the young children enabling adults to shop.

Thank you to EMS Parents/Guardians for attending the EMS PTA Book Fair at Barnes and Noble. It is because of your support it was so successful!!

Finally, a great big thank you to parent volunteers, student volunteers and to the EMS PTA Board who happily gave so much of their time, their cars to transport instruments and anything else that needed to be done to make this first EMS PTA Book Fair at Barnes & Noble a huge success!!!

MS Players Club Presents…


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

A Midsummer Vacation Nightmare by Tim Kochenderfer


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.
