East Millbrook Is…
East Millbrook Magnet Middle School offers the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme and the A+ Creative Arts program. These magnet programs provide students with a comprehensive, inquiry-based education focusing on the Common Core State Standards, with an equal emphasis on the study of the eight academic subjects that are thematically linked with an arts-integration component. The approach combines knowledge and application with critical thinking through the use of integrated arts and thematic units built around the International Baccalaureate Programme’s Five Areas of Interaction (Community Service, Environments, Human Ingenuity, Approaches to Learning, Health/Social Education) students attain a global, realistic education emphasizing learning that extends beyond the textbook covers.

Attn. 6th Grade Parents: Vaccine Required
Attention 6th grade parents: Your student is going to need more vaccines prior to coming back to school in August. Beginning July 1, 2015 all 7th graders in NC will have to have the Tdap and Meningococcal vaccines before starting school. This is an adjustment to the previous law which required 6th graders to have the Tdap vaccine. Current 6th graders who had their Tdap vaccine in order to meet the requirements of the previous law will not have to get another Tdap shot. They will only have to get the Meningococcal vaccine. If you have any questions regarding this new law, please contact Ms. Hall in Student Services and she will be glad to help you.
School-Wide Grading Plan Info
Please pay special attention to our school-wide grading plan which can be found on page 4 of the student agenda. Students who do not turn in an assignment when it is due will call their parent from the classroom and read from a script informing the parent that the work has not been done and that the student will be expected to stay after-school the next Wednesday unless the work is turned in. This procedure is intended to keep parents informed and prevent students from digging themselves a hole they cannot get out of. Teachers will not be able to speak with the parent as these calls are made because they will be busy teaching the class. Parents who wish to speak with the teacher are encouraged to email the teacher or call the office so that a time can be arranged for that discussion.
Parent Portal Reminder
Do you want to be able to keep up with your child’s grades, attendance and discipline throughout the year instead of having to wait on a report card or contact from a teacher? Then you need a Parent Portal account. Forms are available in the main office or on the website.
