Bryson Elementary School received an Education Foundation surprise grant reveal, Monday! Wow! Over $10,000 awarded to educators, benefited by the Because We Care Campaign of 2016! All made possible by the generosity of EMS staff.
The grants awarded were designed to increase technology for Kindergarten students. A second grant is merging music and physical fitness through drumfit, a program with in our Physical Education professionals. We also granted iPads for students designed to augment the ability to learn. Textbooks a child will love to open. If you can't beat 'em join 'em and create a way to relate learning with their interest for game and apps. Two teachers shared their grant writing talent and have been awarded iPads in each of their classrooms providing a larger impact.

Good morning! Based on current conditions, all EMS ISD schools will start at normal times today and all school activities will go on as scheduled. District administrators have been out driving roads across our district since early this morning and they report roads and school driveways are clear. We also have been in close contact with local emergency management personnel throughout the night to assess travel conditions for the safety of buses and all drivers to and from our schools and buildings.
While we did see some wintery precipitation in our area on Monday evening, the larger impact was felt in districts south and east of the DFW Metroplex. Decisions regarding delaying or closing school are taken very seriously and often vary from school district to school district, based on conditions specific to each district. Safety is the number 1 determining factor, and we use every resource available to obtain information and assess conditions before making a decision.
Conditions remain very cold and we remind everyone to bundle up, especially those who walk to school or wait at a bus stop. Stay warm and we'll see you soon! ... See MoreSee Less
