  1. EMC is still looking for cafeteria/recess aides! EMC is a great place to work! If you or someone you know is looking to work a few hours each day, please click on District Positions to apply. This is a paid position; however, volunteers welcome as well. If you can volunteer, please call or e-mail our main office. 
     
  2. Bicycle Permission Forms are required- Students in Gr 2-5 that would like to ride their bike to and from school, should turn in a bike Permission slip. You can print the bike Permission slip from this e-mail and return to school or pick up one in our mail office. 
     
  3. Student Birthday Celebrations- If your child is having a birthday and you would like to send in a treat, please make sure they are individually wrapped snacks with an ingredients label. We have many students with food allergies; we want to be cautious.  Also, if you would like to send in birthday invites to a party, you may do so, only if you are inviting the whole class. Otherwise, please contact families individually; you can also complete the EMC Family Directory so you can be sure to have your contact information available for parents.
