Our 8th grade students had a special guest speaker, Mr. Jake, visit them today to help wrap up their Holocaust unit. Mr. Jake is a Holocaust survivor, and our students enjoyed hearing his story. We are so thankful Mr. Jake came to visit! A special thank you to school board member, Mike Cochran for his support and for introducing Mr. Jake to E.K. Baker. Another special thank you to our 8th grade ELA teacher, Mrs. Heather Scheutzow for bringing awareness of the Holocaust to our students.
Today, we had a ribbon cutting for our newest addition at E.K. Baker! Our book vending machine was purchased for our school by our PTO.

On September 22nd, before classes started, some of our middle school students elected to take part in the "See You At The Pole" event. The "See You At The Pole" event is simply a time when students can choose to gather around the school flag pole and have a time of prayer.
E.K. Baker would like send a special thank you to all our volunteers! Our volunteers help make our school great! This week, School Board Member, Denise Cunningham showed up to lend a helping hand in our cafeteria along with Amber Garner, Debbie Trotter, Judy Malone, and Sarah Prince.

Monday, September 20th, is Picture Day!
E.K. Baker Elementary is a level 5 based on academic growth for the 2020-2021 school year. A level 5 is the highest academic growth score that a school can receive. We are extremely proud of our faculty, staff, and students! This is a great accomplishment for any school, but it is AWESOME for E.K. Baker. The last time we received academic growth data we were a level 1. Our school has worked very hard to reach a level 5 status. Congratulations!
