We are continously having an array of activities happening in our classroom and the library. I will keep you posted on this column to see what your child does at school. These pictures have been taken randomly and the students are, in most cases not aware that the photoshoot is on. Kindly bear with me concerning the missing names of the students on the captions. It is of our communal interest to hide their identity from the public for cyber safety.

Second Step Program
It is a classroom-based social-emotional learning program with lessons and reinforcement activities designed to:
*Increase children’s school success
*Decrease problem behaviors
What? Why? How?
Guided reading is an instructional approach that involves a teacher. working with a small group of students who demonstrate similar reading behaviors and can all read similar levels of texts. The text is easy enough for students to read with your skillful support.
The goal of guided reading is for students to use these strategies independently on their way to becoming fluent, skilled readers. ... During reading: I guide students as they read, provide wait time, give prompts or clues as needed by individual students.

I would like to take the opportunity to welcome back all our returning EMS students, as well as those of you who are new to us this year! I am thrilled and looking forward to an outstanding school year and we know it will be the best one yet! I am ready for the awesome task of preparing all my students to be successful learners.
The EMS school community provides our students with a well-rounded educational experience. While the core curriculum is provided for all students, we believe that it is critical to provide leadership opportunities, character education, and exposure to technology to prepare students to compete with their global counterparts.
This year will be filled with numerous learning opportunities for our students. EMS takes immense pride in establishing an atmosphere that invites its valued parents and guardians to be a part of the educational process. Throughout the year, your parents will be provided with many opportunities to participate in the education of their child.
