Message from Principal Darla Jackson
Hi Panther families!
This week has been amazing. It is fun to see our students begin mingling with new friends and re-connecting with old friends. Teachers are getting to know their students more and more each day...that is the best part about starting a new year.
Wednesday was our first advisory period, called IMPACT. Students were provided with an agenda planner to write down assignments and due dates for upcoming tests and projects per subject. This is also an excellent way for you guys to know what is happening in class. Please encourage your child to keep up with their agenda since organization is an important key to success.
Our PTO's Big Kahuna fundraiser begins today. Your child attended a short kick-off celebration this morning so ask them all about it when they get home. We appreciate our PTO...they do so much for our students and teachers.
We are honored to play such an important role in your child's life. Thank you for "sharing" them with us each day.

Plus, we will be announcing a super grand prize for the top seller! All proceeds from the fundraiser go directly back to the school - supporting school wide activities and programs.

New Girls' Group Forming Called SOAR
Come join the adventure of finding friends who really understand you! There will be crafts, guest speakers and lots of fun! We meet Mondays in the library after school.
Parent Information Seminars from EMS Counselors
It is a counseling department goal to provide some Parent Information Seminars. If you completed the survey at Meet The Teacher, we would love for you to turn it in at any of the offices. However, if you were unable to attend Meet the Teacher or didn't get the survey, feel free to email us directly if there is a topic you would like some more information on. Some ideas would be Naviance (our college and career readiness information system), teaching self-regulation, how to handle stress in teens, self-harm etc. We would also like to know the best time for you to attend (morning, lunch, evening). Our emails are email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to a great school year!
