Eagle Middle School of Choice for the Arts
5th grade Auditions!
If you are interested in the School of Choice for the Arts at EMS this is for you!
Incoming 5th graders have the opportunity as 6th graders to take a more in depth Art class, and a Drama class if they become a part of the School of Choice for the Arts at EMS. To be involved in the School of Choice, you must go through and Audition process for both the Art program and the Drama program.
Auditions will be held on
Thursday, March 6th at 4:00 pm
In the main gym
This is only a meeting and audition for parents and 5th graders THAT ARE INTERESTED. If you are registering "normally" you do NOT have to attend.
If you are only interested in the drama classes, or just the art classes, you should still attend and fully participate so that you can make a more informed choice about your 6th grade year.
Students do not need to prepare anything for this audition process.You should bring a pencil with you. Students should have comfortable clothing that they can move around in freely.
We will be answering questions, working through some simple art activities (complete a drawing, or shade these shapes from darker to light shading for example) and we will also be running students through a simple audition process.
The drama activities are Improvisation exercises where we look for a student's self control, self awareness, creative thinking, willingness to participate, etc… etc…
Just because a student does poorly in either the art or drama does not necessarily mean you will not be allowed to be a part of the program. Involvement depends on class sizes, interest, scheduling, and a myriad of other factors. If for some reason you are not chosen to be a part of the School of Choice program you will still be able to be in 6th grade Art and have access to Drama in 7th grade and Advanced Drama classes in 8th grade, as well as other Art classes in 7th and 8th grade.

Items Dropped off for Students
If your child has forgotten an item at home, our office assistants will help get those forgotten items to students when you bring them to school. Please understand that in order to minimize interruptions to the classrooms, we will be delivering forgotten items only during the first 10 minutes of each class period. Thank you for your continual support of the great learning taking place at Eagle Middle School!
Lost and Found
Should your child be missing a notebook, water bottle, lunch box, or clothing, please remind them to visit the lost and found located in the front office. At the end of each month, all unclaimed items are donated to charity.
Dress Code Information
We have seen fewer violations of our school dress code this year. As a reminder, shorts and skirts should be no shorter than mid-thigh, jeans and other pants must not have holes above the knee, shirts must be modest enough to cover cleavage, shoulders, and undergarments and leggings/tights worn as pants are discouraged. Thank you for monitoring your student’s clothing choices.
The laws of the state of Idaho require all youth to attend school regularly. Joint School District No. 2 defines regular attendance as missing NO MORE than SIX (6) days per semester.
Proper documentation provided by a medical or dental office and/or legal verification for any absences must be turned in within five days of the absence to waive the absence.
Parent phone calls inform the school that the student is absent, but does not waive the absence.
All absences except extraordinary and waived absences are counted in the six allowable days per semester.
