Ice Cream Social - August
What's the perfect transition back to school after a long, hot summer? Ice cream! Why do we love ice cream so much? Because it's sweet! Because it's cold and the weather is hot! Because it's amazing!
Fall Picnic - September
The fall picnic is ESM's way of welcoming back our parents and kicking off the school year.
Movie Night - October to April
The ESM monthly movie night is a PTA fundraiser. For $1/ticket and $2/slice of pizza, students can enjoy family friendly movies like Disney's Frozen, Wreck-it-Ralph, and Indiana Jones.
Holiday Dinner - December
Held around Christmas every year in the school cafeteria, we ask parents to bring in cultural desserts that represent ESM's extraordinarily diverse community. Over 300 people typically attend.
Hot Wheels Club - January to April
Our building may not have a drag racing track, but we do have laser-timed, high speed thrill racing! Students and families come together monthly in the school cafeteria to race Hot Wheels cars. May the best car win! All cars will be thoroughly examined for illegal modifications prior to race time.
Spring Festival - May
The Spring Festival mixes fair-weather fun with community service. On one side of the school, we have a dunk tank, where students can let out some pent-up energy by dunking the teachers. Our musical teachers and families play instruments. Everybody eats hot dogs (or veggie dogs!). On the other side, our spring volunteers are weeding and planning their community gardens, which they will tend throughout the summer.
Promotion - June
Every June, our 8th graders move on up to high school and our Pre-K students move on up to Kindergarten. We celebrate these big transitions with solemn speeches, lots of hugs, and a big party!
