One Shining Star – Emonte

Emonte is a 3rd grader at EES who has celebrated many successes this year. At the start of the year he became a role model for new students entering our classroom.

R-E-S-P-E-C-T

The students at Easton Middle have been focusing hard on one of our High Road expectations this past month. Respect is important in all areas of our lives, respect for ourselves, property, and for others. Miss Lisa and Miss Connar created an incentive based around our students having full days with all pluses on their point sheet for respect. Since it was a group effort, we waited for each student to get to 10 "respect" ice cream scoops, and we all celebrated together. It was great to encourage each other to keep our eyes on the prize, and it [...]

A Successful First Quarter

Here at EMS (Easton Middle School), we are very proud that our students not only survived the difficult transition from elementary school to middle school, but that they also accomplished academically by making it on to Honor Roll. The boys all worked very hard during the first quarter. One of the beautiful things that we see with our students here, is that even when they have emotionally difficult moments, they turn their day around and complete their work. They do not let their negative moments ruin their day, each moment is a new one, and we embrace each moment [...]
