K-2nd Grade Announcements

Greetings K-2 families! We are so excited to get off to a great school year in partnership with you all. Remember scholars are considered late after 7:45 a.m. so please be sure to get your scholar to school on time every day. Late arrivals cause a disruption to the learning environment and we want all scholars to maximize learning minutes to enjoy all we have in store for them at EEP!


Beginning the week of August 12th, scholars are expected to begin working on their HW packets and starting on Friday they can earn their 100% HW Completion Jeans Passes! YAY! Please ensure your scholar is completing their HW every night so they can earn this cool jeans pass.


Our glows and grows will start being issued beginning the week of August 12th into LiveSchool. Remember a daily paycheck of $8 or higher is a great day and anything less than $6 is not a good day. Please review with your scholar our K-5 Team and Family Compact 19-20 located on our school’s website. We are excited to begin our Paycheck Parties for scholars who earn a certain number of glows per week so please review the paychecks nightly and set goals with your scholar each day. A copy of the parent LiveSchool code was sent home Monday. Reach out to your scholar’s teacher if you are having any issues logging in so you can keep up with their glows and grows.


Scholars are expected to be in full compliance with the dress code, including the proper EEP polo, correct color pants, shorts, skirt, jumper, or skort as well as ALL BLACK SHOES! If your scholar is not in compliance you will receive a call from our Dean of Culture (Ms. Jones) with next steps and will be expected to bring the corrected items to fix the uniform issue.

3rd - 5th Grade Announcements

Greetings 3rd - 5th grade families! We have just completed our first week of school and it was an amazing week!!


Beginning the week of August 12th, scholars are expected to read their Independent Reading books for 30 minutes each night and write a summary of what they have read. Scholars will also be expected to complete a Math Fluency sheet each night. Please be sure to sign your scholar’s Reading Log nightly and review their homework “coversheet" that will go home every Monday.


Scholars will also begin earning merits/demerits beginning the week of August 12th. Please review with your scholar our K-5 Team and Family Compact 19-20 located on our school’s website. We are excited about some of the cool incentives that we will be offering to scholars who earn lots of merits and maintain a paycheck average of $80+ each week.


Also, uniform dress code will be enforced this week. Scholars are expected to be in full compliance with the dress code. If your scholar wears pants with belt loops, make sure scholars have on a belt. Lastly, please be reminded that scholars are considered late after 7:45 a.m. Late arrivals will cause loss of instructional time which may lead to poor academic performance.
