NEWS AND NOTES ABOUT EAGLE MOUNTAIN ELEMENTARY

EAGLE MOUNTAIN ELEMENTARY

I hope this will inform you about what is going on at EME.

Dear Eagle Mountain Families,


What an exciting & busy year we have had so far. I can hardly believe it is almost time for Thanksgiving. We are enjoying your children very much. They are just as neat as they can be, & we are very proud of them & what they are accomplishing.


We put together this parent newsletter for you to highlight some of the neat things we are doing at Eagle Mountain.


Our Eagles are enjoying their first round of Clubs on Fridays. Our first round of enrichment clubs will end on November 20th & our second round of Clubs will begin in January.


Our Liink Project is going well with our Kinder & first graders, & we believe it is making a difference for our youngest learners.


I will be hosting our first 2nd Cup of Coffee Parent Tuesday, November 10th, at 8:45. I will be giving parents an overview of some of our instructional goals & things we are working on as a campus this year at EME. You are welcome to join us if your schedule allows you to, & I am looking forward to spending some time with you.


We are also looking forward to our Veteran's Day Ceremony Wed. Nov. 11th from 8-9 AM & our Thanksgiving Feasts Thursday & Friday. Thanksgiving Lunch for grades K, 2, & 4 are on Thursday, Nov. 12th & on Friday, Nov. 13th for grades 1, 3, & 5. Our Grandparent's Day is Friday, Nov. 13th from 2:30-4:30.


Thanks again for sharing your amazing kids with us! I hope you & your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!


-Mr. Mac

VOCABULARY PROGRAM

I want to take a minute & brag on your children & how well they are doing with their vocabulary words!


There is a plethora of research that tells us the many benefits of strong vocabulary instruction to increase students’ reading, writing & thinking abilities.


Each grade level takes a higher level word each week & learns the meaning of the word. The following week they are asked to TEACH the definition to other grade levels in our school, through the use of posters, sentences, skits, videos, etc. & the kids are loving this & rising to the challenge. One teacher even posted QR codes around the school which was exciting. This year our kids will work on achieving different levels from Rookie to Vocaber to Word Wizard to Sesquipedalian to Vocabologist.


The neat thing is our kids are using their vocabulary words in everyday conversations as well as in their writing. Many former students relay to me the difference our vocabulary study has made in their lives, so I believe we are doing a great job in making it relevant for them.


Thank you for your support of our vocabulary program. It makes a difference.

-Mr. Mac
