This meeting is at 6:30 pm in the EMS Cafetorium.

TCAP Testing
The TCAP (Transitional Colorado Assessment Program) is based on the new Colorado Model Content Standards and has replaced CSAP. The TCAP will continue to assess the same content areas and grades as CSAP. Students will be taking the TCAP tests. The tests and schedule for each grade level at EMS are as follows: 6th Grade: Reading, Writing, Math: March 11 - 15 7th Grade: Reading, Writing, Math: March 11 - 15 8th Grade: Reading, Writing, Math, Science: March 11 - 15 Attendance is vital during this time. We wanted to let you know early so that appointments and vacations are not scheduled during these days. Thanks in advance for your understanding and cooperation.

Parent/Teacher Conferences are scheduled for February 19th and February 21st. Please look for information to come home within the next few weeks from teachers. If you have any questions, please contact Erie Middle School at 303-828-3391.

What do you remember about middle school? Your friends? The teachers? The goofy projects and after school clubs? Help your child hold onto their yearbook days by buying them a yearbook. $25.00 will buy them a lifetime of memories. Yearbooks can be purchased online through our EMS website, or through our librarian, Mrs. Monroe.
