ESMS PTA & SLT

FIRST PTA MEETING OF THE YEAR AND FALL ELECTIONS

Tuesday, September 25 @ 9:15am
ESMS Cafeteria

  

GET INVOLVED IN YOUR SCHOOL!

We are seeking candidates for three 6th Grade Parent Representative positions on the PTA.
Grade representatives are asked to attend monthly meetings and support the planning and execution of school events, with special emphasis on 6th grade activities.

We are also seeking four Parent Members to serve on the School Leadership Team (SLT).
The SLT meets monthly at 5PM and works to determine the educational and budgetary priorities of the school, which are then used to create the annual Comprehensive Education Plan (CEP) for the school. The SLT conducts an annual parent-staff survey on the school and deals with school-wide issues.  

Are you in?  Send a short bio and statement of interest to ptaelections@esms.org.

Principal's Book Club

Parents are invited to join our book-loving principals for monthly gatherings in the ESMS Library.  The Principally For Parents Book Club explores books chosen by Mr. Getz and Ms. Hyman, including notable fiction and non-fiction for adults as well as interesting books our middle school children are currently reading.

1st Meeting:
Date - Wednesday, 10/3/18
Time - 7:30PM
Location - ESMS Library
Book - What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank by Nathan Englander
