6th Grade Orientation and Welcome!


Dearest Esperero Family:

Welcome to the 2013-14 School Year!  We are so happy to see our new and returning students.  
Just want to say how much we have missed you over the summer.  It has been very lonely at ECMS without our wonderful students and faculty.  

I want to extend a warm hello to all of our 6th grade students and parents!  We want to invite all 6th grade parents to our Parent Orientation Session from 10:15-11:15 in our library on Wednesday, August 7. 6th Grade Orientation for students starts at 10 am in the MPR on the same day! So drop your student off and come to the library for some great information.  Ms. Jennifer Marner, 6th grade counselor and Mr. Cory Walavich, ECMS Band Director will facilitate this session.  The primary goal of parent orientation is to support parents in helping our 6th graders to be successful at ECMS.  This is NOT mandatory and we realize that not all parents will be able to attend. There will be many opportunities to interact with us, so not to worry. 

Our 6th grade counselor is Ms. Jennifer Marner and her extension is 209-8112.  Ms. Marner is amazing at helping students and parents. Counseling is her passion and she is here to advocate for students.

If you have questions about how ECMS works, please allow us to assist you.  We are here to help! Ms. Sheryl Castro is our Dean of Students.  Both Ms. Castro and I can be reached at 209-8100.  

I have spent almost 3 decades in education and every year, I still get butterflies.  If you are the same way, just know it is a normal state of being.  We all care about our kids' well-being and academic progress.  Let me assure you that all students will be known to their teachers by name and feel connected to our school academically, socially and emotionally.  It is our mission to move all students forward in a safe, caring and nurturing environment. 

Welcome aboard!
