    Tiger Team!

    Below are some monthly items to share with you.  Although I have not had the opportunity to meet many of you face to face, I want to share my gratitude for having the opportunity to serve as your child’s principal.  It is truly a pleasure to see our students each day and I am honored to work alongside our wonderful teachers to continue to make our schools an amazing place to learn!

    Quarter 4 - Distance Learning

    Distance Learning Applications - Due by March 19th.  These can be found in the office or online at https://www.ehps.k12.mt.us/cms/lib/MT01000580/Centricity/Domain/1/ParentDistanceLearningFormAug62020.pdf

    Current Distance Learners - If you are planning to continue Distance Learning there is no further action.  If you wish to come back to in-person learning, please notify our office and your child’s teacher by March 22nd.


    We just wrapped up our “I love to read” month and we are excited for our March “Music In Our Schools!”  During this month there will be fun activities for our students and staff to participate in.

    • Battle of the Bands -March 19th -  Dress up in your favorite music gear.  The class or “band” with the most participants will earn a whole set of ice cream treats provided by our own Mr. Krantz!
    • Masked Lip Sync Battle - Each class will be creating their own lip-sync or “air band” video.  PPE and EG will swap videos for voting.
    • Music Trivia - Each Friday, Mr. Krantz will release some music trivia for the school to enjoy.

    Planning For Next Year

    Our School Leadership Team has started the process of looking into plans for next year and we are taking into consideration what schedules, routines, etc. could look like with 3 different scenarios that have different levels of impact by COVID-19 restrictions.  In addition, we are getting geared up for our new kindergarten students and finalizing plans for our screening process.  If you, or someone you know, will have a student entering kindergarten next year, please make sure to have them register at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdwBo0isGZPlagnuxXVYHP4PgOIwqokyVV8vXKcqBHZjkf6yA/viewform

    Thank you and have a wonderful day!
