East Lee would like to congratulate Mrs. Karen Voelz, 8th Grade Math teacher, for being voted our 2020-2021 Teacher of the Year! We thank you for all your dedication to our school and our students!
Elective Preference for 2020-2021
At ELMS, each student will take all of the Essential (elective) classes by the time they finish 8th grade, unless the Essential class is year round (AVID and Band/Orchestra). Rising 7th and 8th graders are to choose Essentials they have not yet taken. Remember that one of your two Essentials is automatically Health & PE class. Example: 1st semester you might take Health & PE and Art, then 2nd semester you might take Health & PE and Computer Skills.
