Home / School News / The EMCS Weekly for Friday, June 14th


Next week is our last full week of classes here at EMCS!  Students should have picked up their yearbooks during Fun Day, but we will still have a limited number for sale in the Commons on Monday at lunch time.  We also have our French Immersion Grad Ceremony and Major Awards Night Thursday evening, and then the week closes with Prom at the Empress on Saturday, June 22nd.

Please check below for more event dates/deadlines, and the year-end exam schedule.

Thank you to our Leadership staff and students who made Fun Day GREAT!

And the EMCS band sounded amazing at Thursday’s concert!  Thank you Ms. Parliament for all your hard work this year!
