Below is a photo of our current LOST & FOUND items. Just a friendly reminder that many sweatshirts, gloves, hats, etc. look alike. Please consider labeling items with your child's name. This will help us return items to your child, when found.

IF YOUR CHILD IS ABSENT
K-Kids Canned Food Drive - we are helping to collect food for the Brooklyn Food Pantry. Please bring in any food item to help those in need. This organization also accepts monetary donations, which they use to choose food items out of a catalog at a discounted price.
Terrific Kids - we are looking for adult volunteers who are willing to be a mentor by writing encouraging notes, leaving a little gift of encouragement, dropping off a small treat for a student's lunch...or whatever you feel would give your assigned student a boost. This type of mentoring is flexible and does not require face-to-face meetings. Please let us know if you are an adult willing to be a "Terrific Kids" mentor.
If you have any K-Kids questions, please contact:

Would you like to mentor a student but don’t have time to come to school during the day? In January, we are starting a program called “TERRIFIC KIDS.” You would be partnered with a child who would benefit from your support. You can write them notes of encouragement and deliver them to our office or mail them, give your student little gifts from time to time, leave them a treat for their lunch, etc. If you are interested in being a mentor for TERRIFIC KIDS, please email Ashley.Phelps@myeagles.org or call 517-592-6632.
If you believe your child would benefit from having a mentor from this program, please email Mrs. Phelps @Ashley.Phelps@myeagles.org
