Exciting news, students and parents! The EMS Music Department has been awarded a pilot set of iPads for RCPS's Digital Conversion Initiative. This means that next year, a permanent, class set of iPads will be present in all music classes for instruction and learning. This is a huge opportunity to really change the way things are done in the music room, and enhance the opportunities for learning.
All music students and their families are invited to the EMS Performing Arts Awards Ceremony & Potluck!

This past weekend, the EMS Music and Drama departments loaded a bus and headed to the Altria Theatre in Richmond to check out a full-scale production of the musical Memphis.
A great time was had by all, and students were able to experience valuable lessons about tolerance and acceptance in this up-tempo musical about race relations in the late 1950s.

A hearty congrats is due to the EMS choir for their fantastic performances at Elkton Elementary School, McGaheysville Elementary School, River Bend Elementary School, and the Elkton Area Community Center. Our students had the opportunity to perform alongside the choirs from East Rockingham High School. Thanks to each of our venues and students for such a great day of music making!
