6 Plus Information


Participation in 6 “PLUS” time is encouraged for our EPS middle school students.  “PLUS” time will be held Monday-Friday from 2:35-3:30 p.m. Families with students participating in “PLUS” time must make their own arrangements for after-school transportation. Students who cannot safely arrive home following the “PLUS” sessions are encouraged to ride the school bus at 3:30, if a route is available for the area where they reside. 

Enrollment forms will go home with students on the first day of school and should be returned to their first-hour teacher by Friday, August 16th.  “PLUS” time will begin Monday, August 16th.  “PLUS” time offers students the opportunity to:

-- Receive extra help or structured time to study.

-- Complete homework with guidance.

-- Explore activities that would have not been traditionally offered in the middle school schedule.

-- Become civically involved and demonstrate leadership with community partners and guest speakers.

-- Participate in intramural activities that enhance fundamental skills and build upon sportsmanship.

-- Minimize the amount of time students have to exhaust on homework at home, maximizing family time and other evening activities.
