All visitors now need to be buzzed into the building by a school staff member. The camera and door bell are located to the right of the main doors. All visitors will still be required to check in at the front office and show identification. This new system will allow all of the outside doors to be locked during the school day.
Congratulations to Derrek Meadows, Cooper Hinman and Auguson Saless. They have all qualified as 3 of the 10 kids, district -wide that have been chosen to represent SVVSD at the National Academic Games Tournament this year in Charlotte, NC. This is a district Gifted & Talented program for 5th/6th and 7th/8th graders. I am really proud of them all... they worked so hard after school to earn their spots, and competed against kids from many different schools in the district by playing Equations and Onsets, (both math games).

EMS would like to thank everyone that donated juice boxes and granola bars. We received enough granola bars so that every student can have a snack everyday of the TCAP testing.

See page 2 of this weekly update to nominate your favorite teacher for an award!

Dear Parents: We are very fortunate to have such an amazing staff at Erie Middle School. I have the opportunity to see adults going above and beyond to support students academically, socially, and emotionally everyday. There are two recognition programs available that allow parents to nominate teachers whom they feel are deserving. I wanted to make sure that you have the following information: 1) The Jared Polis Foundation sponsors a recognition program.They will award 8 Colorado public school teachers with JPF Teacher Recognition Awards, which include a $1,000 discretionary award for the teacher and a $1,500 teacher-directed school grant. Principals, school employees, students, parents and teacher colleagues can nominate a teacher. The nomination deadline is April 5th. To learn more please visit http://www. jaredpolisfoundation.org/ keyprograms/teacher- recognitionguidelines. 2) The St. Vrain Valley Education Foundation sponsors a recognition program. They will select three finalists from each school in St. Vrain Valley to attend a wonderful dinner celebration called Tribute to Teachers, and then will select one of the three for an Encore Award. The Encore Award winner from each school will receive a small cash award, a certificate of recognition and their name on a plaque displayed in the lobby of the Educational Services Center. In addition, the Foundation will choose three Encore Award winners from across the District, and give them a Spotlight Award. The nomination deadline is March 14th. To learn more about the Encore Award Program and to nominate a teacher please visit bit.ly/VJKwMh Thank you in advance for your willingness to nominate a well deserved teacher! If you need information or assistance to fill out a nomination, please feel free to give me a call or send an email! Todd Bissell Principal Erie Middle School bissell_todd@svvsd.org
