Dear Elizabeth Pinkerton Middle School Community,

I would like to take this opportunity to either welcome you to Elizabeth Pinkerton Middle School or welcome you back for the start of your child’s 8th grade year. The 2018-2019 school year will mark my fourth year as the principal and I feel fortunate to be working with such a great community of learners, teachers, and parents/guardians.

This year, we are implementing a new bell schedule to allow teachers time to collaborate with their department members. We have embarked on a journey to become more data driven with our instruction. Humanities, Math, Bridge, Science, and PE have developed essential skills based on the Common Core Standards. They will give a common assessment based on the essentials and will then analyze the data to determine which students need more time for learning the skill(s) or who may need extension activities. Our Electives department will be defining their essentials this year. In order to do this vital work, our teachers need time to collaborate with their colleagues, which led to the addition of another late start day to our schedule. We are already successful with many of our students and through this work, we will be able to reach even more students.

To begin the school year, your child will participate in a PBIS Kickoff the first two days of school. PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports and is the foundation of our climate at EPMS. We strive to set the expectations in a positive manner and hold our students accountable. These two days will be spent teaching our expectations in a fun and interactive way. In the morning students will participate with their Advocacy class in the kickoff and will then follow their class schedule later in the day. We know this will help set a positive tone for the school year.

I look forward to meeting you and working together as the EPMS community. I hope you will take advantage of opportunities to visit the school and to stay actively involved in your child’s education.
