The Eagles' Nest

March 2019

From the Principal's Point of View...

Hello Eagleville!

MARCH EVENTS

Spring is almost here even though the winter weather continues to grip our area. Remember to set your clocks forward one hour on Sunday, March 10 at 2:00 p.m.


Dr. Reddish will be returning to Eagleville on March 18. She is excited to return just in time for March Madness and PSSA testing. Working at Eagleville the last few months has been a wonderful experience; this is a truly fantastic school as I have enjoyed getting to know the Eagleville students and parents. Thank you for all of your warmth and support during my time as Acting Principal.


Regarding car line…please keep in mind that your child is exiting from the passenger side door independently. In addition, when driving by bus stops and busses please be conscientious of your speed.


Our PSSA testing will take place in April for our 3rd and 4th grade students. It is our goal that Eagleville achieve 100% participation in this state mandated testing, so please make sure your child gets plenty of sleep the night before and eats breakfast. Please find the dates below:

Mon-4/15, Tues-4/16, & Wed-4/24- ELA, Grades 3 & 4 (9:15-11:15 a.m.)

Mon-4/29 & Tues-4/30- MATH, Grades 3 & 4 (9:15-11:15 a.m.)

Wed-5/1 & Thurs-5/2-SCIENCE, Grade 4 ONLY (10:15a.m.-12:15p.m.)


Again, it’s been both an honor and pleasure to serve you and I wish all of you the very best!

Welcome spring, and welcome back, Dr. Reddish!


Sincerely - Dr. Kochenour, Acting Principal
