Thank you parents for your attendance at conferences. We had a building total of 89%. THAT IS AMAZING! 6th grade conferences had an attendance of 97%, 7th grade, 89%, and 8th grade 82%.
Your presence and support of your child is extremely important to them and to us as educators. We also appreciate the feedback you gave on the parent surveys. This information is used in accessing how parents perceive EMS and what we can do to make EMS even better. Your attendance is appreciated during this busy time.
A huge thank you to PRIDE, (EMS parent group) for providing meals and snacks for teachers on Tuesday and Thursday of conference week. It is greatly appreciated!
