Jump Start supports incoming sixth grade students and their families with the transition from elementary to middle school. Through workshops facilitated by staff, students and parents, families new to EMS will gain insight and resources that will help their children achieve success in middle school. Jump Start is designed to excite and prepare students and families coming to EMS.
Students come to EMS from five feeder schools making our school population very diverse. Jump Start is especially important at a school like EMS to build camaraderie among students before the first day of school. This helps us begin the year on a positive note.
