ECMS HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS
ECMS Families & Students,
I hope this message finds you well and filled with anticipation for the upcoming school year. On behalf of our dedicated staff, I would like to extend a warm welcome to each and every one of you as we embark on the 2023-2024 academic journey together. It is an honor and a privilege to serve as principal at East Canton Middle School. Our dedicated team is committed to providing a nurturing and empowering environment where students can thrive academically, socially and emotionally.
As we kick off this new school year, I am excited to share with you our EC GOLD standard. This standard embodies the values and qualities we aim to instill in our students:
Engaged. Considerate. Genuine. On-Task. Leader. Dedicated.
We believe that by fostering these attributes within our school community, we can create a positive and inclusive learning environment where everyone feels valued and supported. Throughout the year, we will be working closely with students, parents/guardians and staff to cultivate these qualities and celebrate instances where they shine through. From recognizing outstanding acts of leadership to encouraging genuine connections within our school community, our EC GOLD standard will serve as a guiding light for us all.
I want to express my appreciation for your ongoing support and collaboration. Parents, your involvement and partnership play a vital role in your child's education, and together, we will educate, empower and cultivate the potential within each of your children . Students, your eagerness to learn and grow serves as an inspiration to us all, and I encourage you to embrace every opportunity that comes your way this year.
In closing, I am excited to embark on this journey with you and witness the growth and achievements that lie ahead. Let us come together, driven by our shared commitment to the values of our school district’s mission. I have no doubt that we will make this year a memorable and successful one.
Wishing you a wonderful start to the 2023-2024 school year!
Gregory Dente, Proud Principal

2023-2024 School Supply Lists
6th Grade Chromebooks for 23-24 School Year
We are excited to announce that all 6th grade students at East Canton Middle School will receive their very own school-issued Chromebook for the 2023-2024 school year. This initiative aims to enhance the learning experience and provide students with the necessary tools to excel in their studies. By equipping each student with a Chromebook, we are enabling them to explore new digital resources, access online textbooks, and collaborate effortlessly with their peers. This technology will empower our students to engage in interactive learning experiences, develop crucial digital literacy skills, and prepare for the increasingly digital world!
Chromebooks will be given to all 6th grade students during the first week of school. Students will be permitted to take them home. We do ask that all families and students complete a “technology-use agreement” form.
Purple Star Award
The Purple Star Award recognizes schools that show a major commitment to students and families connected to our nation’s military. Schools that earn the award receive a special Purple Star recognition to display on site. East Canton Middle School is honored to be recognized as a Purple Star School!
ECMS Receives Highest Designation from ODE
The Ohio Department of Education has informed us (East Canton Middle School) that we have been designated as "Independent", which is the highest designation that a school can receive in the federal support identification system.
Here are a few facts about this accomplishment
1. ODE will designate Ohio public schools every three years based on state report card data.
2. The other federal designations are priority, focus, and warning.
3. The federal designation is connected to the Every Student Succeeds Act, which replaced the No Child Left Behind Act
** Congratulations to our entire ECMS Family on this impressive accomplishment! **
