Updates and Reminders

Eastview Elementary School - September 18, 2015

Friends,


Thank you all for how well you have handled the tragic situation that occurred this week. As I said early, Eastview was a bright spot in Gaven's life, and you should all be proud of that. The services for Gaven are next Monday. If you are available, I would like for us to attend as a group. We could leave Eastview at 3:30 on Monday. Please keep the family and his classmates in your prayers.


College Go! Week will be here next week. To celebrate we will be doing a Scooby-Doo Theme. Mrs. Gulley will also be visiting each classroom next week. A sign-up sheet has already been posted for this.


Please support College Go! Week by wearing a college shirt (t-shirt, sweatshirt, jersey etc.) and jeans EVERYDAY next week. It is our hope that when the students see the staff excited about college, they too will be excited.


Please contact Mrs. Gulley or Mrs. Silcott if you have any questions about College Go! Week.

PBIS Note - September focus: Be Respectful

With the number of counselors meeting with kiddos during our lunch periods, I would like to avoid having students use their blue tickets to purchase "lunch in the conference room" on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We simply do not have the space. The others days should work fine, just send Brenda an email in advance, so we can avoid other conflicts.
