It is normal for students to be given homework. Homework is an integral part of the instructional strategy at EMS. It can assist the students in their quest to acquire basic knowledge and develop their critical and analytical thinking skills. Additionally, it helps them prepare for work to be done in class. Parents should encourage students to achieve mastery of concepts taught in class and should also help students to prepare for any class tests that might be given. Homework assignments are expected to be complete, accurate and neat.

Parent-Teacher meetings are held on second Saturdays of each month during the session. Parents are requested to attend these meetings to develop home-school communication.
