Eagleville Elementary Read-a-thon Update

The Eagleville Read-a-Thon is crushing it! We have already surpassed the $6,000 goal so I am definitely wearing a Hot Dog outfit later this month!

Only two weeks in, and the Eagleville Fall 2021 Read--Thon is already a huge success for our students and staff! With over $12,000 in generous donations, you've helped Eagleville Home & School to fund field trips, assemblies, classroom enrichment, and special events like Field Day and Fun Day in the spring. There's still plenty of time to register at https://www.getmovinfundhub.com/register?school_uuid=610807c0cf734

And CONGRATULATIONS to our Eagleville students who have already reached 15,000 MINUTES of reading time! Be sure to continue logging your students' minutes at https://www.getmovinfundhub.com/login to be eligible for awesome incentives, including fun-filled prize baskets on display in the school library!

Art Class-Mrs. Kraus

The first meeting of the 4th grade Environmental club was held this week. We learned about the Great Monarch Butterfly Migration from North America to Mexico. We are sending an Ambassador Butterfly and Symbolic Butterflies that we created during our meeting to share with students in Mexico who are also learning about the Great Migration. This Symbolic Migration Program helps to build communication between students in the United States/Canada and students in Mexico. United by the Monarch butterfly, children across North America learn lessons of conservation, cooperation and ambassadorship. In the Spring, when the Monarchs leave Mexico and return to North America we will receive paper butterflies from students in Mexico.

Counselor's Corner

What do you do when someone hurts your feelings? Students are taught how to use “I Messages”. It is a simple formula to say “I feel ______, When you ______, so next time please _______.” It is helpful to practice this phrase with smaller or positive feelings for this strategy to be easier to use when bigger hurt feelings arise. It may also be a fun activity for families to share at dinnertime to express their feelings about the day. For more tips about expressing feelings, contact Lori Shaw, School Counselor at 610-489-5000 X41207 or LShaw@methacton.org
