Field Trip Permission & Money

Thank you for those of you who have sent back the field trip permission slip and money!

A field trip permission form went home in Monday Folders last week. The 5th grade teachers have outlined all of our field trips for the year. In hopes of making it easier for everyone, we would like to collect the money and permission for all of the field trips at one time. If you have questions, please let me know.

Food Drive October 17th-29th

For the food drive this year, each grade level has been assigned a different item to bring in. Fifth grade has been assigned granola bars/cereal bars/etc. Each box earns the grade level points in a student council sponsored contest.


Our Eagle Creek Read-a-thon will be on Tuesday during the school day. Students will be reading for 20 minutes at a time in different classrooms for a total of 120 minutes! Students are welcome to wear slippers and sweats. Dress comfy for a fun-filled day of reading!
