ECMS recently received a state of the art weather station.  It has a cloud camera facing south-southwest, rain gauge, barometer, thermometer, it measures UV radiation, solar radiation, the temperature in the ECMS pond, the soil temperature in the garden area and lots, lots more.  It feeds to a website accessible from anywhere in the world and even has a mobile device app.  The app is for anyone interested in our area's weather.  Last but not least, the weather station feeds to The Weather Channel which utilizes the data to provide a 10 day forecast.  There are really so many features;it?'s very exciting.

These third grade WDE students went above and beyond their AR goal! By earning 25 AR points and maintaining an 85% or higher average for the 3rd Nine Weeks, they had the opportunity to pie their teacher in the face!
