- Congratulations to EA’s 2016–2017 Scholastic Award recipients (3.5 - 4.0 GPA) and Honor Roll students (3.0 - 3.49 GPA). Certificates were sent by mail in June with grades.
First Quarter Reminders
- Middle school students who are full time can take up to one year’s worth of electives at no extra cost. Feel free to review the electives available to middle school students and let your counselor know if you would like to add any.
- EA is offering offline electives to all students in grades 3–12. The purpose of offline electives is to encourage students to be more involved in their communities and to promote social interaction. Students’ approved extracurricular activities can now be tracked via the Middle School Offline Elective Form and recorded on their report cards once submitted and validated.
- Approved offline electives: private music lessons, band, choir, choreography (ballet/dance), cinematography, art/drawing, home economics, physical education, and organized sports. For other electives, please contact your counselor to get an activity approved.
- Students in grades 3–12 will have required or recommended purchases for English and/or science. If your student needs something for a project that is not easily accessible to you, such as a specific chemical or piece of equipment, please contact his or her teacher to request an alternative project or means by which to complete the project. Information on required or recommended purchases for each grade level can be found on the website by grade level:
The Math Resources Course is a supplementary video course that can be assigned to students per request. This course provides videos that explain main concepts that are covered in a regular math course. It is designed to help students understand the material better. The Math Resources course only has few multiple choice questions after each video to help the student understand if he/she understood the material covered. This is a free course and its grade does not count towards the final math grade, nor do students receive any credit for it. Please contact your counselor if you are interested in the Math Resource course.
- September’s recommended reading for middle school students: The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane.
A Note from the Counselors
- Please review the courses assigned to your child to see how he or she is doing. If you find that any of the courses are too difficult or not challenging enough, please contact the student's counselor within 14 days of the class assignment to make any changes.
A Note from the Teachers
- Students have several options to earn extra credit for the first quarter. Please note that for each course students can use only one of the following options per quarter:
- Students can write an essay about physical or virtual visits to museums, art galleries, historical sites and more to receive extra credit in an associated course. More information on road trip essays can be found here.
- Students can read classic literature and write book reports to receive extra credit for their English course. More information on EA’s Reading Program can be found here.
- If you submit an assignment, project, etc. and then see a lower grade than you feel that you have earned and a yellow triangle with an exclamation point, this means that you have successfully turned in the work, but that a teacher needs to grade it. Once the teacher grades the remaining work, the score will increase accordingly and the triangle will disappear.
