September 18th-22nd

Friendship Week

At Eagle Creek, this week is all about friendship! On Tuesday, students should wear their Eagle Creek RED t-shirt or any red t-shirt. We will be doing our annual school-wide picture to spell out this year's theme word.

Field Trip on Thursday

On Thursday, we will be going to the Cedar Lake Farm on a field trip. Students will need a home lunch (or they can order a bag lunch from the cafeteria), and they should be prepared to be outside all day. I recommend old tennis shoes (it can be muddy), pants (we walk through some tall grasses), and layers on top. Hopefully, it will be a nice day!

Classroom Connection Night

Thursday, September 21st is Classroom Connection Night. There will be only 1 session for each grade level. 5th grade has been assigned 6:30-7:00pm. If you are interested in learning more about our classroom or you have some questions, please join me. The evening is for parents/guardians, so if possible, please leave children at home.
