Resources for Explorer Middle School Parents

Research shows that family engagement in schools improves student achievement and reduces absenteeism. Students with involved parents or other caregivers earn higher grades and test scores, have better social skills, and show improved behavior.

The resources below were created to help parents stay informed about policies and procedures at Explorer Middle School (EMS). We also invite interested parents to take a more active role at Explorer through the School Council and United Parent Council.
