Dear Elkhart Middle School Parents and Community,
I would like to personally welcome everyone back to school as we prepare for the Greatest School Year on Earth. Everyone here at Elkhart Middle School has greatly missed our students and eagerly await their return. We encourage parents to come join our team in helping today’s learners become tomorrow’s leaders. Please make plans to get involved in your child’s education. Parents are an essential element to their children’s success in school and are always welcome. We have a variety of ways to learn more about our campus. Please feel free to call us at 903/764-2459. We also welcome you to drop by for a face to face meeting with anyone on our campus. In addition, tons of information can be found on our school website at: www.elkhartisd.org, including email links to each staff member. Elkhart Middle School also has a Facebook page where tons of up to the minute information can be found!
All faculty members will report back from summer vacation on August 7th. We will spend each day the next few days preparing for the students’ arrival on Wednesday, August 14th. Our incoming 6th graders are invited to attend, “Fish Camp” from 12:30-3:30 on Friday, August 9th. Incoming 7th grade students are reminded that immunizations are required before the first day of class. Our campus will host a “Back to School Meet the Teacher Night” on Monday, August 12th from 5:30-7:00. Students can catch up with old friends and meet new ones while rediscovering the middle school campus. As always, we will serve ice cream!
We’ll kick off the new year Wednesday morning, August 14th at 7:55 am with an assembly in the gym. Students who still haven’t picked up their schedules will receive them at this time. We do ask that students not come for their schedules before the Meet the Teacher night. New students, however, can pick up their registration packets from 8:00 – 3:30 beginning August 1st.
