Principal's Weekly Message-June 10, 2019Posted by Jennifer Baer on 6/10/2019 7:00:00 AM
Happy Sunday East Millbrook Families!
Believe it or not we are about to begin the final two school days of the 2018-2019 school year. We are excited to celebrate the growth and success that our students have made this year and sad to see the year come to a close.
The past six weeks at East Millbrook Magnet Middle have been some of the most amazing and inspiring of my career. I have been honored to get to know this spectacular school community and to begin the process of building meaningful and lasting relationships with as many people as possible in this amount of time.
My time has been spent asking questions, observing, and participating in the learning experiences that we provide students on a daily basis here at the Academy. I have been so impressed by the level of commitment and engagement that students and staff put forth throughout the campus.
We have worked to get information from as many stakeholders as possible so that we can continue working over the summer to develop a shared vision that will move us forward into next year. We would like to thank each student, parent, and family who has taken the time to share information and take time out of their busy schedules to support us in creating the best future possible for everyone at East Millbrook.
Report Cards will be mailed out this week and should arrive to your homes by the end of this week or early next week. Included in the report card will be promotion information, EOG scores, and any other progress report that may apply to your Academy student.
The North Carolina Math EOG's are being re-normed this year. As a result, the state will be mailing home Math EOG scores later this fall (August 2019). A detailed letter will be placed in your child's report card envelope with more information.
We had a great time last Friday celebrating our 6th and 7th grade students who earned achievements in academics, arts, and character throughout the school year. Congratulations to everyone who was recognized during the ceremonies!
Our 8th grade students will participate in an Assembly this Tuesday where we will celebrate their gifts, talents, accomplishments, and success in completing their Middle School careers. We are excited to see each of you off to high school this fall!
Our staff would like to thank each member of our community who has supported our school community in any way this school year. We could not continue to grow and achieve if it were not for the support of our entire Academy village. Thank you to our PTSA who will be recognizing our amazing staff by providing a catered lunch on Wednesday afternoon.
We will working throughout the Academy this summer. If anyone has any questions or would like to meet and discuss ways that we can enrich the opportunities that we provide each learner, please reach out and schedule a time. You can reach us by calling the front office 919-850-8755 or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In closing, we appreciate the privilege to serve your families throughout the year at East Millbrook Magnet Middle School. We look forward to seeing our returning Cougars this fall and wish our 8th graders all the best as they move on to High School. Although you are leaving our campus as full-time scholars, we invite you back to visit us when you have an opportunity in the future.
