Eagle Press

Eisenhower Elementary

Oh, what a week!

We have had a FABULOUS first week back to school! Our students are learning their classroom routines and creating connections with their teachers and classmates. Our teachers planned many wonderful back to school activities for all of our Eagles.

We are so thankful for all our families that attended our Meet the Teacher evenings. We loved connecting with our parents, families and students!

Enjoy the long weekend and we will see everyone back on Tuesday!

Eisenhower Verification Forms

All students received their Data Verification Card this week in their folders. Please fill this form out and return it ASAP so we have this important information to update our contacts in our system. The form is bright GREEN. All forms should be submitted by Wednesday, September 7th.

Please reach out to our Main Office at 439-6600 with questions.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.


When the 2021-2022 school year ended, so did free meals for every student. While the federal government funded a program that allowed all students access to free meals during the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress has declined to continue funding this program.

  • Parents should submit a free & reduced application to determine if they qualify for free or reduced priced meals.
  • Meal prices will remain the same as they were pre-Covid (last time students had to pay).
    • Elementary Breakfast $1.35
    • Reduced Breakfast $0.30
    • Elementary Lunch $2.35
    • Reduced Lunch $0.40
  • We will be using a monthly Meal Order Form. Parents must complete the Meal Order Form each month in order to receive breakfast or lunch. These should be submitted to the Meal Coordinators prior to the start of the next month.
  • Fresh fruit & vegetable bars are back!
  • All prepayments should be made ONLINE using the new Family Portal.

Please complete the 2022-2023 online application to find out if your family qualifies for free or reduced-price meals.

IPAD Update!

iPad distribution will begin on Monday, September 12th. If you have any unpaid fines, please pay them as soon as possible. Please talk with your child about where their "home base" will be to charge the iPad each night. iPads should come to school fully charged each day.

Second Step: Social Emotional Learning Curriculum

Now more than ever, we need to address the whole child. Best practice shows that students who feel safe and secure are better prepared to engage in their learning.

Therefore, we are excited to continue to use Second Step in our K-8 classes beginning this week to further strengthen our commitment to social and emotional learning. (For more information about the benefits of SEL, please check out the quick video below.)

Second Step offers weekly, age-appropriate virtual lessons for students to help them with various social and emotional skills. These weekly lessons will build on and support all of the great work we're doing at Ike to support our students. Combined with our schoolwide restorative practices and consistent PBIS expectations, we are creating a firm Tier 1 foundation for supporting all of our students' social, emotional, and behavioral development.

Please view the flyers below to learn more about the program topics, and look for additional updates from classroom teachers and ALL district newsletters.

Medical Needs

If your child has specific medical needs, please reach out to the main office prior to the start of school. In order to administer medication, consent forms must be completed. Consent forms for prescription medications must include dosage and frequency information signed by a physician. Medication, including inhalers, must be stored in the main office and not in backpacks or pockets. In addition, if your child has a medical plan, it will need to be updated for the 22-23 school year.

Bus Stop Information

Bus stop information will be available online for the 2022–2023 school year starting August 29. You can access your child’s bus stop information by visiting www.fraser.k12.mi.us. Click on the "Bus Stops" link and enter your address to retrieve your child’s bus stop information.

It is very important to check your child’s bus stop, as routes have been modified for the 2022–2023 school year.

Students will be assigned a route number in lieu of a bus number. The route number is located on the left side of the entry door. To ensure transportation, all students must be at their bus stop 10 minutes prior to the scheduled arrival time.

Please review with your child the bus rules found on the Transportation Department’s website.


If your family is in need of a backpack or school supplies, please reach out to Mrs. Sanders. New Life Baptist Church graciously donated some to our school.


When the red flag is hung outside our front doors, this means indoor line-up.

Our students can enter the building at 8:20!


The goal of our PTO is to enrich the environment of our children, families and community. It takes volunteers to make that happen and parent volunteers are always necessary and welcome!

Join us for our first PTO meeting on September 14th @ 6:00 p.m. in the media center!

Join us for a day of planning fun activities for our students at Ike!
