Getting the Message out!


The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.

Mount EJE
The students of Mrs. Mackey's 5th Grade Science classes wanted their culminating science project to be creating a volcano model that they could watch erupt.  Students brought the materials for the project, prepared the materials to be used, and created the model by working together. Students participated in shaping the project with chicken wire and paper mache. When the model was ready to go, the entire school was invited out to watch the volcano erupt and to act as a symbol for blasting everyone into summer by having fun learning at EJE!

The EJE 5th Grade Classes banded together to help one of their own classmates whose home was destroyed by the recent tornadoes. They happily gave their snack money from Friday's Field Day to purchase a $170.00 Sawmill Mall Gift Certificate so Bethany could begin replacing her things.

Starting immediately, we will begin to strictly enforce our unexcused tardy and early withdrawal policy. Upon 3 tardies and/or early withdrawals, your student will be required to serve after school detention. Tardies and early withdrawal will automatically be marked as unexcused. A medical excuse must be returned to your student's teacher or the school office in order to be marked excused. All other tardies and/or early withdrawals must have principal approval requested by letter in order to be excused.
