Why is Elizabethtown Middle School a Great Place to be?


            Elizabethtown Middle School gives me the education that I need. The students, staff, and the administrators are very nice. You can be yourself. If I feel down, I can trust someone at E.T.M.S. to cheer me up. We are a family at E.T.M.S.  E.T.M.S. has quotes on the wall of the school. The quotes are inspirational. I really like the quote that says “Set goals high, and don’t stop till you get there,” by Bo Jackson. To me this quote means to don’t ever quit. Once you reach a goal, make a new one, and keep on going. When you set a goal don’t let anything get in your way of accomplishing it. Our school’s motto is Together, We Can! This year our students R.O.A.R. We are respectful, organized, attentive, and responsible.

Why is Elizabethtown Middle School a Great Place to be?


 Elizabethtown Middle School is a great place to be.  We are committed to excellence in education.  We have challenges every day and we are challenged every day.  We are not a perfect school and we don’t proclaim perfection, but we are striving to do our best every day with God’s help.  As a school, we represent good things that happen in Elizabethtown.  We have the best administration, the best teachers and staff and great students to work with.   Working hard at E.T.M.S. is a beginning not an ending.  We are the beginning of great things.  It might take us a little longer, but there is no end to what we can accomplish.   We strive to do everything we possibly can do to bring about achievement and change.  We set high goals and standards and we patiently work to complete our tasks. 


            Who would have thought that our B.ET.A. Club would take 2nd place in the Battle of the Books competition in the state of North Carolina?  We did it.  It took prayer, hard work, encouragement, practice, teamwork, and self-esteem.  We are proud of our students.


            Our teachers are always encouraged to go beyond the call of duty to inspire and build up our students.


            We constantly find ways to encourage academic growth and success in our students.  We have gifted and talented students who strive for Excellence.  We Roar daily as a school with Respect, Organization, Attentiveness, and Responsibility
