Dean of Students October Update

Hello Erie Middle Parents and Families:

What an incredible first quarter! Our students are shining and succeeding in so many ways and it is fun to watch them excel both in classrooms as well as in their athletic and club events that are outside the school day. 

We just wrapped up an amazing Volleyball season where we had over 100 students participate, and Cross Country has their final race, the Colorado State Meet this Saturday at Lyons. Boys Basketball had their first game on Wednesday and we have over 70 students on the team. ASL Club and Brain Bowl have just started, and our VEX Robotics teams are getting ready for competitions next month. 

Students who are involved in extracurricular activities feel an increased connectedness to school, which help them in their academics as well as with their social and emotional well being. Over 70% of EMS students participate in extracurricular activities here at EMS. Thank you for encouraging your student to get involved! 

On Thursday, October 24th from 6:00pm-7:00pm we will be hosting our Club and Activities Fair Experience (CAFE) where you and your student can come and see what each of our groups have to offer. This is a wonderful way to talk with students who are currently participating, as well as with the sponsor or coach of the club or activity. Please join us at this great event as we showcase our extracurricular activities and our student leaders in our building! We look forward to seeing you there. You can also check out our activities, clubs and sports on our school website

Also next week, we will be opening our ROARS store so that students can spend the ROARS tickets that they have been earning from their teachers for meeting ROARS expectations in and out of the classroom. We have some great items in the store including posters, coffee mugs, reusable straws, scrunchies, squishies, school supplies, and much more! The store will be open at lunch on Wednesdays, if you would be interested in volunteering to help in the store please let me know. You can reach me at Brueggeman_erin@svvsd.org

Thank you again for your continued partnership as we continue to advance student excellence at Erie Middle School. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly with any questions.
