EMS Handbook

A Message From The Principal

On behalf of the staff at EMS I want to welcome each of you to the 2022-2023 school year.  Although we expect this year to feel like a somewhat normal year, due to the circumstances and consequences of the past two and a half years, this year will again be like no other at EMS.  With that said, I want to let each of you know that, like it always is, this school year will be about high expectations and we are extremely excited to do all we can to work together to meet these high expectations.

Please know that this planner can assist students and parents/guardians in many ways including the following: 

  • It is a tool to assist students with organization.
  • It is a tool to inform a student’s parents/guardians of a student’s assignments, assessments, etc.
  • It is a tool that provides parents/guardians with a resource to facilitate communication with their student’s teachers as well as information to guide parents in the use of Family Access to track their student’s academic progress.
  • It informs students and parents/guardians about important information that details policies, procedures and student discipline.

Please take the time to read through this planner and to discuss the information within it.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

We ask all students to remember that being a student within the Ephrata School District, being a student at Ephrata Middle School and being at TIGER is something to be proud of.  Let your attitude, effort and behavior be an example of this pride and work to make Ephrata Middle School all it can be.
