Book Donations

Dear EMCA Families,

Research has found that students who are in classrooms with well-stocked classroom libraries read more and become better readers than students who aren’t.   Research also shows that students who read, do better in other school subjects.   For this reason, it is my goal to build a library in my classroom and to encourage my students to read for enjoyment.  Therefore, I am asking that you donate any unwanted books from your home to our classroom library, or you can shop at garage sales or used library book sales for quality books for 6th-12th graders. Thank you in advance for your help in strengthening our classroom library this year! ~Mrs. Boarts,, EMCA Secondary English Teacher


ACT at EMCA, Wednesday, February 20, 2019

EMCA 10th – 12th graders – if you signed up with Mrs. Price to take the ACT on EMCA’s campus, the cost is $45 and must be given to the EMCA office by February 20. Cash or check, make checks out to EMCA. If you have any questions, please ask Mrs. Price at or 334-358-4085.


Character Trait for January:
