E.M.C. News - September 18, 2018

We had such a fun time with all of our EMC families last week at Back to School Bash!  The Boys and Girls Club thanked us for a great evening and looks forward to hosting us again in the future.  We had our first Home and School Meeting last night, full of information and details of what is happening at EMC.  It was wonderful to meet many new families and exciting to hear what the year holds for EMC.  Our notes are posted on EMC's Web site, under the Home and School > Meetings tab.  Here is what's happening at EMC...

October 12th - NO SCHOOL
 
October 18th - Sundae Bar! 
We are always looking for parents to come in and volunteer! The sundae bar is included with the purchase of a lunch. If your child does not purchase lunch, the sundae bar may be purchased a la carte at a price of $1.65. Please be sure to send money with your child on that day or make sure there is enough money on their account to enable them to purchase the sundae bar as an a la carte item. 
 
The "Band Together for EMC" Walk a Thon labels will be sent home with students this week.   The event will be held Friday, November 2.  Please support EMC by sending completed labels back to school by Tuesday, September 25.  Provide as many labels as you can with the names and addresses of your family and friends; we will not use this information for anything other than Walk-A-Thon donation requests.    EMC students will be filling out a donation request letter this week during school, and our Walk a Thon Committee will use the letter (and your labels) to request donations for EMC.  Instructions will be provided for how to fill them out.  In an effort to reduce waste, we have sent some partial label sheets home with students.  If you find that you prefer to use a full label sheet, please don't hesitate to contact us and we will be sure to get you one!
