Veterans Park Fall Update
Ellen Tuckner, Principal
Thank you, PTA!
Introducing the EAGLE FEATHER PHONE CALL
- Voluntarily putting away recess equipment
- Making a smart choice to sit in a place where their best learning was possible
- Voluntarily cleaning up in the cafeteria daily
- Voluntarily holding the door open for classmates every day as they exit for recess
- Voluntarily getting food for a friend in the cafeteria when a lunch bag was misplaced and the student was upset
The proud recipients of the Eagle Feather Phone Call certificates are pictured below:
Significance of the Eagle Feather
According to Native American law and legend, the Eagle feather is a symbol of many things including: respect, honor, humbleness, truth, love, natural power, strength, courage, wisdom and Freedom, everything that is positive.
Therefore, when one holds the eagle feather, one must speak the truth in as positive a way as one can, for the ear of our creator is that much closer to the feather of the eagle.
We honor the feather of the eagle, with great care, showing it respect, honesty, and truth, at all times.
Parent Input/Feedback Forums
In addition, I've had the opportunity to meet with a great many parents as I began here this past July, but there are a still quite a few families that I have not had the chance to hear from. Certainly, the parent community voice is critical to my full understanding of life at VP!
To that end, I am setting up 4 parent input sessions:
Grade K-2 parents
- October 27th- 9:45-10:45 am
- November 2- 6:30-7:30 pm
Grade 3-5 parents
- October 20- 9:45-10:45 am
- October 19- 6:30-7:30 pm
In order to keep the group size manageable, I am keeping the maximum number of people at each session to 25. Please rsvp by emailing:
indicating which date and time you are hoping to attend. If more than 25 people respond to a given session, and you are not able to attend a different one, I will add additional sessions to accommodate as many people as are interested in joining me.
I look forward to spending time together to continue to make Veterans Park the very best school it can be!
