Letter from the Principal

Dear EMC Community,

In a time that is filled with so much uncertainty, I am so grateful for our EMC community. Every year our students and graduates make me proud and hopeful, and that feeling has been especially heightened this past year. Thank you for your continued trust in our team and ongoing partnership as we worked together to support your children. I look forward to continuing our work together in SY 21-22 to make EMC a truly amazing place to learn and grow!

Rachel McClam
