  • Scheduling Clarification for 2016 - 2017


    We are pleased to introduce a 1st period literacy block for all ECMS students this school year.  During this 35 minute segment of time, our students will be engaged in reading high-interest, content-related texts.  We will now have a 7 period day, with "Library/Research Skills" representing our literacy block.  We are excited about the positive impact that this literacy focus will have on our Panthers!
