The first showing of Effingham County Middle School's The Christmas Carol was a success. The students did a great job and the audience thoroughly enjoyed the show. If you missed the first showing, the ECMS Drama Club will be doing two more shows on December 7 and December 8. Both shows begin at 7:00 pm sharp! Admission is $5.00 per person.
Students, get your sports athletic passes for $10.00. See Mr. Smith in Room 717 to purchase.
These passes allow you to attend any regular season ECMS home athletic event (regional games do not qualify).

ECMS PARENT PORTAL INFORMATION FORMBeginning with the 2014-15 school year, the Effingham County School District will no longer mass print report cards and progress reports. Parents will need to access the grade report information in one of two ways: 1) Via the Infinite Campus Parent Portal or 2) By requesting that hard copies of the grades be sent home upon each release of progress reports and report cards. If you need access to the parent portal or need hard copies to be sent home due to a lack of internet service, please print out the ECMS Parent Portal Information Form, complete it, and return it to the school with your student. Thank you!
