EMCS has had an excellent start to our new school year. All class changes have been finalized therefore all students should be attending all of their classes. Monday is a non-instructional day so students have an extra day this weekend to crack the books and start the engines and then back to regular classes on Tuesday. Next week our famous cafeteria Eddy M’s opens for business! We hope to see you all on Thursday, September 20th for Meet the Teacher from 7-8:15pm. Please see below for updates on new clubs and team start up and as always, if you are concerned about your student please contact their teacher, Admin or the office. We are always here to help.
We now have new EMCS Wolverines App! Students and parents should download it to stay current with announcement and school news. Instructions available here: https://emcs.appazur.com/help/flyer
A friendly reminder for guardians to please complete student consents on “School Cash Online” at https://consent.sd62.bc.ca/apps/OnlineConsent . Annual consents need to be redone each school year, perpetual consents are valid as long as the student remains enrolled in Sooke School District. When you log in to the portal, if you have already provided consent for the perpetual items, they will show as checked, and the annual items will show as unchecked.
