April has arrived and we all know what this means...Spring Break!!! I hope all of you have a great week and get to spend as much time with your families as possible. We even have some good weather to look forward to, if the weather channel is accurate?
March has been a really busy month here at Evanston Middle School with our students participating in many educational activities that they may have never had the opportunity to take part in, had they not been so fortunate to be students here at EMS in UCSD#1. Some of the activities the students took part in were: a four day science field trip for the 8th   graders to Teton Science School in Jackson, a visit to the SLC Planetarium, a Challenge Spanish class trip to the University of Wyoming where they took 1st place, experiencing live theatre at the Hale Theatre watching The Hunchback of Notre Dame, competing in MathCounts in venues all over the state, performing in the Spring strings concert, being rewarded with breakfast and a movie for earning straight “A’s” third quarter, rumbling with one another to determine the kings and queens of the 4th annual Reading Rumble,     learning life lessons in Reality Town and finishing off strong with the 3rd quarter awards assembly celebrating our student’s accomplishments. Wow! Is this a run on sentence or what!? I hope my ELA teachers forgive me for such a sentence, but I just had to let you know all the great things happening here at EMS in addition to the content they are    learning daily in their classrooms! It is truly exciting!
Now, let’s move on to the month of April! There are quite a few things happening as we get closer and closer to the end of the school year. First of all---SPRING BREAK!!! I know I already mentioned this, but I think that we are all ready for a break from the books. One of the first things that is occurring after our return on the Monday the 16th, is the exciting time for tryouts for this year’s talent show. Students are asked to bring a prepared talent and will be judged for entry after school on Tuesday, April 10 & Wednesday, April 11th. Good luck students and remember to practice over spring break. There will also be a night activity sponsored by the Hispanic Dance class on Friday, April 13th from 6-9 pm. Encourage your students to get off the video games and come out to support their fellow classmates at a fun event! Progress reports for grades should come home on Tuesday, April 17th, so please ask your kids if they have something to show you, as they may even get some extra credit for getting it signed. Toward the end of the month (Apr. 27), there will be a talent show for our awesome students to share their talents with the rest of the student body. A couple of days prior to this (April 25th), the 6th graders will also have the opportunity to attend the Hale Theater to take in a play.  
The last thing that I would like to report on is the new state assessment called the WY-TOPP. All students grades 6-8 will be tested this year, as they have in the past, on Reading and Math. The 7th grade students will also be tested in Writing and the 8th grade in Science. The dates for the test will be April 24, 25, and 26th. Students will be tested on their Reading skills on the 24th, their writing (7) and science (8) skills on the 25th, and their math skills on the 26th. All assessments will be taken in the morning when students are more alert, and as studies indicate, able to do their best work. We ask that you always make sure that your kids get a good night’s rest and a healthy breakfast before coming to school, but especially encourage that you do so during these testing dates. We know that all of our students are more than capable to do well on these assessments, and ask that you encourage them to do their very best work. Thanks for all that you do to support your kids and our students. Go Wolverines!!!
