Principal's Message


Welcome incoming and returning “Warriors” to Eastern Middle School for the 2019-2020 school year. 2018-2019 was a fantastic school year, but I can not wait to make this school year the best yet! 


We will have Open House at EMS on August 13, 2018 from 5:30 – 7:00 P.M. Parents and students are welcome and encouraged to attend and familiarize themselves with the building and meet the teachers.  Our cooks and bus drivers will also be present to answer any questions and to help ease any concerns parents or students may have about school. Our first day for students will be August 15, 2019, and we will have all students meet for the first day assembly in the gymnasium. The teachers will have some activities prepared for students and staff to kick off the school year. Our school day begins at 7:30am and dismisses at 2pm. 


It is our goal at EMS to provide a safe and structured learning environment in which students can apply their 21st century skills to communicate effectively, think critically, and solve problems.  With high standards and high expectations, students will become responsible learners who can not only work collaboratively, but also be accountable for their own academic goals and improving their character.


Middle School is a very important and exciting time for students and we wish to fill these years with M.A.G.I.C.   At Eastern Middle School students are pushed to Meet Academic Goals and Improve Character. Success is the tradition upon which the Eastern Local School District is built and stakeholders in the educational process must remain motivated to continue this tradition.

Extracurricular activities are already going at full force. Some of our fall sports teams have been putting in the hours and effort to prepare for competition.  If someone has missed the One -Calls about practices or activities please email me with questions and I will point you in the right direction (email listed below). One past and present goal for Eastern Middle School students is for each student to participate in at least one extracurricular activity.


We hope to make this time at Eastern Middle School a successful experience and to prepare ALL students to become lifelong learners who will make valuable contributions to society.   Please feel free to contact Eastern Middle School with any questions or needs. Please feel free to contact Eastern Middle School with any questions or needs at 937-695-1272, 937-695-1249 or 937-695-1377.  The fax number for EMS is 937-695-1299.


Thank you and let’s remember that “It’s a great day to be a Warrior.”
