Amazing Winter Concert

The Edward Town Middle School Winter Concert, held last night at the Niagara Wheatfield High School Auditorium, amazed the parents, friends & relatives sitting in the audience. The ETMS Jazz Choir, Bands, Concert Choirs & Jazz Band all performed with great spirit and musical mastery.

The first half of the concert began with two invigorating jazz pieces performed by the ETMS Jazz Choir. Next the sixth grade band deftly displayed the ensemble skills they acquired in the short span of 4 months. The band was followed by their fellow six graders in the Concert Choir who similarly pleased the crowd with their vocal renderings.

 

 

After a brief intermission, the music began in earnest as Director Chris Peracciny’s Jazz Band rocked the crowd. Then the mood became more solemn as the seventh and eight grade concert chorus under the direction of Kenneth Fick presented a beautiful holiday sampling ending in the “Carol of the Bells.”  Director John Scime’s seventh and eight grade band concluded the evening with a whimsical set of festive music.

Thanks to the directors, students and all who made last night such a special evening.

The ETMS Parent Group sponsored a Teacher Wall of Horrors Contest. We applied monster filters to the teacher’s photos and challenged the students to identify as many of the ghouls as they dared!

The contest was held at the 10/26/18 Halloween Dance. Although no contestant correctly identified all of the photos, our five winners managed to accurately guess on 10-12 of the pictures.

The grand prize of 5 pounds of Dum Dum lollipops was awarded to 7th Grader Easton Larrabee. The runner up prizes went to Simon Polek (7th Grade), Anthony Strangio (7th Grade), Jordan Meyers (7th Grade)  and Jada Drey (7th Grade). Congratulations winners and to all who played!

We also thank the 16 good natured teachers/staff who participated: Mrs. Platt, Mr. Scime, Ms Culligan, Ms Simmington, Coach P, Mr. Fick, Ms. Kroening, Mr. Myers, Mrs. Waggoner, Mrs. J. Miller, Mr. Steinel, Ms. Bubar, Ms. Crogam, Ms. Yeates, Ms. Murphy and Mrs. Braham.

Teachers Preparing for First Day

The ETMS Teachers were hard at work yesterday getting ready for the first day of school this coming Tuesday.

 

The day was punctuated with official meetings, impromptu solutions, unpacking, decorating and copying study sheets.

 

To fortify our busy educators, the ETMS Parent Group (HSA) sponsored a drop in breakfast. The spread included hard boiled eggs, yogurt, granola, fruit, coffee, tea and fruit diffused water.

 

Student schedules were posted on the Parent and Student Portals by late afternoon so that the students could review their itinerary before classes begin on September 4th. To access your child’s schedule go to the Parent Portal at https://parentportal.wnyric.org/login.aspx?returnurl=%2fdefault.aspx

WEB (Where Everyone Belongs) Orientation

WEB (Where Everyone Belongs), the exciting new program designed to orient and welcome the incoming 6th Graders in a FUN way, was in full swing yesterday at ETMS.

The new students were picked up by the buses and dropped off at the school entrance exactly as they will be when school begins next week. Dedicated teachers and staff waiting in the atrium then assisted the students in finding their new home rooms. After organizing their school supplies and learning how to work the locker combinations, the students spent the rest of the morning having fun! A rocking assembly, ice breaker games and group tours of the school curtesy of the 8th Grade Mentors were among the highlights of the day.

By lunch time, the children had worked up quite an appetite and were treated to pizza, breadsticks and cake curtesy of the ETMS Parent Group. Tired parent group servers were covered in pepperoni & icing by lunch end. But it was well worth the effort! Thanks to all who helped make the WEB program such a rousing success!
