Student & Family Handbook

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to the Oak Creek East Middle School education team! As your child’s teacher, you are very important to the success of their educational experience. Because we share a common goal, the education of youth, it is important that we support each other’s efforts on behalf of our students. We truly see you as partners with us and encourage your involvement, communication, and presence at East Middle School.

We understand that your child means the world to you, and we want you to know that we will provide a safe, positive and stimulating learning environment. All students should feel welcome here, and we will provide a climate that encourages them to challenge themselves. We are always striving to enhance our school. Your input is extremely valuable, so please call if you observe areas we can improve upon.

Please take the time to read this book with your child. Hopefully, this will address and answer most of your questions. Our goal is to provide our students with a positive, productive and challenging environment so they may achieve success and enjoy learning. We will make a sincere effort to keep you informed about your child’s educational progress, needs and successes. We also encourage you to keep us informed of any problems your child is experiencing that may be affecting his/her adjustment and performance at school. Together, as partners in education, our youth will be provided with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and character development necessary to lead productive lives.


Sincerely,

EMS Administrative Team
