AdvancEd Accreditation Review Team Visit
EMCA is accredited through AdvancEd, also known as SACS, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. EMCA is proud to be accredited through the same accrediting agency as all public schools, AUM, the University of Alabama, and Auburn University, just to name a few. What that means is, we are held accountable by AdvancEd to rigorous standards for continuous improvement. We look forward to our Accreditation Review Team visit, scheduled for February 26-27.
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, email@example.com, EMCA Secondary English Teacher

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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 334-358-4085.
Character Trait for February:
