All EWMS students will take the NWEA Winter Assessment starting tomorrow. This test is crucial because it allows teachers to see the growth and progress students have made this school year to better meet their needs in the classroom. Physical students will test at school with their teachers. ALL VIRTUAL STUDENTS SHOULD CHECK THEIR GOOGLE CLASSROOMS TO SEE WHEN THEY NEED TO TEST. Thank you!
In lieu of today's announcement, we want to clarify that middle school athletic and extracurriculur practices and events will continue per the guidance of the Washington County Health Department. This is subject to change if we receive further guidance from the health department. 5th and 6th grade boys basketball tryouts will be held tonight from 5:00-6:30 in the middle school gym, and the 7th and 8th grade games scheduled at Austin and North Harrison for tonight will be played. Middle school students who participate in theater should check their Google Classroom for practice times and schedules. Only family members living in the same household as our athletes will be able to attend HOME games. We will let you know if any of this changes.
Reminder of Last Week's Announcement: EWMS will start on a hybrid model TODAY! 6th and 8th grade students will report to school on Mondays and Wednesdays, and 5th and 7th grade students will report to school on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Any day that a student doesn't report to school will be a virtual day.

5th grade students read "The Monkey's Paw" by W.W. Jacobs and collected text evidence in order to conduct a trial. Pictured is the defense team, prosecution team and our school resource officer, Mr Pennington, our judge. Students had to cite evidence to prove or disprove Mr. White's guilt or innocence of killing his son. Students researched the possible charges of murder in the first degree, murder in the second degree, and manslaughter and their possible penalties. The jury in the first block class found Mr. White guilty of manslaughter and recommended a sentence of 20 years. The jury in the second block acquitted Mr. White of all charges.
Some of our 5th graders at EWMS traced patterns, cut out, embroidered faces, sewed, and stuffed little fruits, veggies, and treats during homeroom!
