Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year. I hope everyone had a great summer and are ready to start the new school year. Welcome back to all the returning students and a warm welcome to the new students.
This year at EES, our theme for the school year is “Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.” It is from a quote by Gail Devers. During Bearcub Groups on the first Friday of each month, we will be discussing this theme and other concepts that tie into the 21st Century Skills.
Enrollment is quickly approaching on August 6-8. The Back to School BBQ is August 13 from 5-6:30pm.
Starting this year, join other EES/KMS parents for coffee, rolls, and educational fellowship for Coffee with Moms and Dads. There will be different flyers available each month to emphasize the importance of the parents’ role in education as well as other articles. This is a come and go from 7:20-7:50am. Location will be in the last classroom on the south side of the hallway in the west wing at EES. Please refer to the district calendar or the flyer in your enrollment packet for specific dates each month.
Bearcat Attack for K-6 students at home high school varsity football games will be returning this Fall. Bearcat Attack will allow students to be more involved in the games, show school spirit, learn about proper sportsmanship, and have the opportunity to win fan of the game prizes. Students can register during enrollment with forms due no later than August 20. Registration is required to be able to participate in the program.
During the year, I will post various information under the “Principal’s Passage” for students and parents. You can also find out the latest information about the events at school via the calendar or the announcements page.
Again, welcome back to all the students and have a great year!
