Music is Everywhere: Congratulations to the 28 EMS students who were invited to attend the annual District Music Festival this past weekend. A couple of nights ago, the 8th graders performed at EHS with ADL, Westford and EHS. In a few short weeks, the annual concerts will be beginning. 2/16 Orchestra, 2/19 Chorus, 5/18 Orchestra, 5/25 Band, 5/2 Jazz Festival on Church Street.
Senior Luncheon: In conjunction with the Essex Junction Senior Center (EJSC), EMS is hosting a monthly Senior Luncheon for our community seniors. Each month a group of students support, dine and entertain the seniors. With a different activity per month, the goal of providing a dining experience for the young and old has been met with enthusiasm. If you know of someone or would like to join us on the third Wednesday of the each month, contact Lou-Ann Pioli at LPioli@essex.org for ticket. Cost is $2.00 if you’re a member of EJSC. $3.00 if not a member.
Social Media: Want to know what’s happening? Consider being a follower of our social media. Each week there are two blog posts highlighting a teacher or a specific activity. Each day there are pictures that are posted on both Instagram and Facebook.
