Mr. Nicholas King's Advanced English

Mr. King's students are excited about the new school year! They will be studying World Literature extensively with a balanced focus on composition and literature. These students will also be writing persuasive, expository, critical, and creative multi-paragraph essays. 

Mr. Loveless' Advanced Band Class

Students in Mr. Loveless' Advanced Band Class are learning and executing fundamentals of instrumental rehearsal and performance in group and individual settings. Students practice at home and complete a log that is signed by their parents. They also have the opportunity to expand their musical knowledge each quarter by choosing a genre of music they are not familiar with and respond to that experience in writing. 

Mr. Nicholson's Math Class

Students in Mr. Nicholson's Algebra Class learned about math with a deck of cards. He showed the students a magic trick and as students gathered around, he simulated the magic trick. Then he used the dry erase board to demonstrate that in a card deck there are 52 cards and to predict which three cards were going to be last - it required counting and a process of elimination. 

Technology Integration Package

Essex County Public Schools has installed a "Technology Integration Package" (TIP) into every math class at Essex Intermediate School and Essex High School. This package consists of a laptop, tablet, LCD projector, six-foot projection screen, and a locked cabinet to store the equipment. Math teachers can utilize technology and allow students to participate by using the tablet which is projected onto the screen. We are teaching our students to be productive in the 21st Century by integrating this new technology to achieve our district goal.

Free Breakfast

To ensure that all students are properly nourished and ready to reach their full academic potential we are offering free breakfast to ALL STUDENTS for the 2014-2015 school year. Please make sure your child arrives at school on time each day to take advantage of this program.
