Ms. Tonia Murray's science classes have been "down on the farm" right in the classroom. The class took great care of 14 fertile eggs and all hatched safely. The highlight of the embryology project was holding one the cute fluff balls! Pure joy! The chicks have returned safely back to the farm and will be egg layers. Submitted by Angela Vance.

Ms. Donnita Carroll’s class led the charge during the month of April to create a spectacular wall mural, representing Autism Awareness.

Congratulations to the class for leading ECMS in taking pause to create something from the hearts of Stingrays for the hearts of others to enjoy! Submitted by Angela Vance.
