The next meeting is on Tuesday February 9 from 5-6pm, coinciding with the BMS/EMS basketball games. Bullying is the topic because of its pertinence in Kentucky news as of late. I would like to extend an invitation to EMS parents to this meeting. Information presented will take a balanced approach to identify, prevent, and cope with bullying in the middle school setting. Resources will be provided to parents and SRO Monty Chappell is invited to present information as well.

Caught Doing Something Good Award
The PTSA is happy to present an award program for EMS students who are “Caught Doing Something Good”. EMS staff can nominate a student that they catch "doing something good”. This can be before school starts, during the school day, or at after school activities.

No good deed should go unnoticed, so all nominees will be honorable mentions and receive recognition on the ELK news and social media sites. Three good deeds (one per grade per month) will be deemed the winners and receive a prize package including a school store gift certificate, a certificate of recognition given to them in our special segment on the ELK news, recognition on our social media sites and be entered into a drawing for an iPad mini (winner drawn at the end of the school year).

We hope that this will help to highlight the great students at EMS and encourage kindness through out our school and community. If you have any questions or would like to get involved in this program, please post here or email us at
