District Report Card

Each school district is required to share their District Report Card with families each year.  The report card contains important information about teacher qualifications, MCAS results, student discipline, etc.  I have provided the ENSATS District Report Card here.  In addition, here is a reference sheet about district report cards: 5 Quick Facts about the School Report Card.


Senior Signs

The Essex North Shore PTO will be distributing Senior lawn signs for the Class of 2022 on Saturday, April 2nd from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm. **Please note the time change!** The pick-up location will be in the parking lots in front of the school and next to the gymnasium.  Please see the following document for information and specific pick-up locations. Thank you to the PTO for sponsoring and organizing this for our Class of 2022.

Kindness Award Nomination Form



We realize that there are several students who are fasting during this month in observance of Ramadan.  We are happy to provide an alternate location for any student who wishes to spend their lunchtime somewhere other than the Main Cafeteria.  Please email me if this is the case and we will assist you.  


Environmental Action Club

This year’s Environmental Action Club members are volunteering at the annual Middleton Earth Day Festival.  One of the activities that will be held at this event is a Planting Seeds/Germination Station.  For this activity, egg cartons are needed.  If anyone has any cardboard egg cartons that they would like to share, please consider donating them by dropping them off at the main office.


Animal Shelter Donations Needed!

The Companion Animals program is collecting donations to support our local animal shelters. Please see attached for more information here.


Grade 10 Fundraiser

Save the date: On the evening of April 14, we will kick off April break with some belly laughs!  A Class of 2024 fundraiser will be held at Giggles Comedy Club at Prince Pizza on Route 1 southbound side in  Saugus.  Doors will open at 6:30 pm.  Tickets will be $30/each and include all the pizza you can eat starting at 7:00 pm followed by a comedy show beginning at 8:00 pm.  Three comedians’ names will be revealed as we get closer to the date, but they’re always great!  Come enjoy some fun!  This event is only open to the first 150 staff members, family members, and friends aged 21 and up.  Be forewarned: it will sell out!  Click here to purchase tickets.

COVID Dashboard and COVID Information Update

Here is the link to our COVID Dashboard.  The Dashboard can be accessed directly on the families page of our website in the COVID-19 section. As an update, we continue to see very low positivity rates.  As a reminder, students who have signed up for test pick-up can pick up their tests at school during lunch.  We will make an announcement on pickup days.
