On Tuesday, January 14th, (Snow date is January 22nd) Winters Mill High School Counselors will come to EMS and will help your child select his or her ninth grade classes.  Your child will come home that evening with a copy of the courses they have selected. The student will also bring home a copy of the level recommendation sheet completed by their current 8th grade teachers and a copy of their Program of Studies booklet.

On January 30, from 5:00-7:00 pm, Winters Mill will hold an Open House. If you have any changes or questions about the courses your child has selected, please plan to attend the Open House. No appointment is necessary. Counselors, teachers and administrators will be there to answer any questions.   The open house is at Winters Mill High School.


This is an exciting time in your child’s life.  As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please call Cathlin McCormick, counselor at East Middle.

You may also contact your child’s High School Counselor with questions about this process.
