Junior VASE 2017
April 22, 2017
On Saturday, April 22, 2017, 25 Early Middle School Art students traveled to San Angelo to compete in Junior VASE (Visual Art Scholastic Event).
Students are interviewed by a certified juror who evaluates their work based on a standard based rubric and their understanding of the art processes involved and the art elements and principles.
Overall EMS took 34 artworks and 26 of those received a superior rating and a medal (12 had perfect scores)! The works who received a superior rating are then judged by the panel of jurors and a percentage of artworks are then awarded a silver medal. Early Middle School received 4 silver medals out of the 9 total silver medals awarded.
Overall we had a very fun and rewarding day!

EVERYTHING STARTS WITH A DREAM
The season of love is upon us and 2017 is running strong. I am so proud of our staff and students for coming back in 2017 with a renewed energy and motivation to have a successful spring to this school year.
I challenged our staff to have a positive spring semester with smiles for everyone. This time of year can be a real challenge, but knowing how great our staff is, I know they will accept my challenge and boost the energy, spirit and success of our student body. We have a caring staff and we have great students. How can we lose with those assets?
Basketball is winding down. We have had some tremendous victories and some devastating defeats but can honestly take pride in our competitive spirit. We compete hard and have the desire to improve and win. Those things will help our kids to improve and be winners in many ways besides just on the field or court of play.
Robotics competed in Ballinger recently and placed fourth out of 111 teams. WOW!! What an accomplishment for our kids. We are so proud of what Mrs. Hull and our kids have done over the years and this year is not exception to that record.
Stay in touch with what is happening at Early Middle School over the next few months. Valentines dance is Saturday the 11th from 7-9. Robotics is competing in San Angelo at the stock show the 13th. Pizza Friday is the 24th.
Early Middle School PTC is running strong. They are finishing the Basketball season with concessions while raising money for our 8th grade banquet. The catered meal and dance is free to our 8th graders. Please be involved in your child’s education and this is a sure way to have a positive influence with their school.
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY to all. We love our kids as if they were our own. We need parents to be involved with their kids. Come visit us and see what is truly happening. It truly does all start with a dream and will blossom into successful young men and women.

NOTE TO PARENTS REGARDING ABSENCE
Just a reminder:
When your child is absent from school, please call the Middle School Office 325-643-5665 (not the teachers) as soon as possible on the morning of the absence. If they have been to the doctor please ask for a note from their office, or just send a note with reason for being absent.
Why? Because we want to make sure your child is accounted for and in a safe place.
If your child tests positive for the flu, please inform the school. The Health Department requires that we keep records for the duration of flu season.
