Good Afternoon EM3 Families,

 

Happy December 13th East Millbrook Families. We hope that you are all doing well and that your weekend has been safe and healthy. We appreciate everyone in our school community who continues to Wear a Mask, Wait six feet apart, and Wash their hands. Continued participation in the three W’s ensures that our entire community remains as healthy as possible. 

 

As we prepare to welcome back our Cohort 1/A students in person tomorrow, please remember to dress appropriately for the weather. All students who are not in Cohort 1/A should plan to log in to google meets and participate from home. 

School Board Information - The WCPSS Board of Education will be meeting for a special session tomorrow, December 13th. They will hold a regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, December 14th. The topic of the meetings will be centered around the health metrics of our community and school operations. 

Asynchronous Wednesday - This week our asynchronous day of instruction is Wednesday, December 16th. There will be no in-person or live google meets on Wednesday, December 16th. 

Family Updates - As we prepare for the second semester, families who have chosen to participate in Virtual Academy for the second semester should have received confirmation letters. Thank you to everyone who completed the process for the second semester. 

Daily Attendance - It is important for students to attend class every day whether they are in person, remote or virtual academy. Please remind your child of the importance of attendance and work completion. Quarter and semester grades are being given as usual, and not attending classes or completing work will likely have a negative impact on their classroom performance. 

Dreambox Competition - Congratulations to the following students whose names were drawn as raffle winners this week. Each student who completed three Dreambox lessons was entered into the raffle. There was no limit to the number of entries that any student could have. 

Our winner will choose from a wide variety of prizes that students can choose from.

7th Grade Winners - Katherina R-V, Sundae B, Jalen T.

8th Grade Winners - Jaelyn H, Citlali R-C, Clayan A.

Lexia Competition - Congratulations to the following students whose names were drawn as raffle winners this week. Each student who completed 30 minutes of Lexia was entered into the raffle. There was no limit to the number of entries that any student could have. 

6th Grade Winners - Malia O, Alexander F, Cristian F-S.

7th Grade Winners - Eddie A, Tyrece H, Demari D.

We will be reaching out to all our winners so that they can select and be presented their prizes. Congratulations!

Thank you all for your partnership so far this school year. We are so excited to see how much learning has been taking place. Being in classrooms, whether they be virtual or in-person is the greatest part of our day and we look forward to seeing everyone this week.

All our Best,
