Mrs. Bearden's Weekly Update

January 18, 2021

Dear Eagle Canyon Families,

Please remember Monday is a holiday. In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, school is closed Monday, January 18th. School resumes on Tuesday at 8:15 a.m.


January is a busy month at Eagle Canyon. Please be sure to click on the bulletin link below to see what is happening each day.


With the rise in COVID cases, please be extra cautious and safe. Please wear a mask, wash your hands and maintain physical distance whenever possible. Masks and physical distancing is a requirement when on any Chino Valley Unified campus. Thank you for your support!


6TH GRADE PARENTS


If you ordered a 6th grade t-shirt in December, the shirts are here and Mr. Bennett is ready to pass them out. He will be out at the cabanas on Tuesday 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. to pass out shirts.


If you missed the opportunity to order a shirt in December, we are doing a second round of orders. Stop by the office with your $12 cash for each shirt and complete an order form by Friday, January 29th.


GRADES K-2 ESSENTIAL STANDARDS ASSESSMENTS


The Essential Standards Assessment #2 window for Grades K-2 opened last week. Our goal is to have assessment results from every Kindergartner through Second Grader enrolled at Eagle Canyon.


As a reminder, this assessment is a formative assessment to help identify our students' progress towards the mastery of the essential standards. As a formative tool, a grade is not associated with these assessments. To get the most accurate results, Parents, please do NOT help your children with their assessments. This data will help the teachers identify opportunities for growth.


The assessments will be administered during class with the teacher guiding the students through the assessments. If you have any questions, please contact your child's teacher, Mrs. Bearden, or Dr. Titus.


Teachers have scheduled ESA's at different times during the assessment window. If your child has completed both assessments, Kindergarten and First Grade parents are asked to bring the ESA's back to the school site. Envelopes in the front office are ready for collection.


CHANGE IN LEARNING MODEL


Last week, letters and more information was sent regarding the application for a Change in Learning Model Application. If you need to submit an application for a change in your child's learning model, In Person to Distance Learning or Distance Learning to In Person, please click on the link below. While all general education students are currently learning at a distance, we hope to have In Person Learning before the end of the school year.


To find the application and to learn more, please click on the link below.

EAGLE CANYON PTA CONTACT INFORMATION


If you have questions regarding Eagle Canyon's PTA, please contact them using the following email address:


goldeneaglespta@gmail.com


A member of the Executive Board will respond to your questions.


STORYTIME ON FACEBOOK


We hope you will join me on Wednesday at 5:00 p.m. where I will share a story with our students. I'm hoping more families will be able to join live at 5:00 p.m. If you have joined the Eagle Canyon Facebook group or follow the Eagle Canyon PTA Instagram page, your child will be able to enjoy the story live.


GRAB AND GO MEALS


Grab and Go Meals continue to be available in the Eagle Canyon parking lot for children 18 and under. Meals can be picked up from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Monday - Friday this week.


ATTENDANCE


Families are beginning to receive letters regarding their child's attendance. Please understand, teachers are required to document their students' engagement during live instruction. Students are required to remain present in their virtual class during live instruction. When students turn their cameras off and do not respond when called on to participate in a class discussion, they are considered absent.


Please help us by talking with your children about the importance of being engaged in daily instruction and learning activities. Also talk to them about only opening tabs their teachers ask them to open. It is very easy for students to open video games in other tabs, but look like they are engaged in live instruction. We need to work together to prevent learning loss during Distance Learning. It will take everyone working together to help our students succeed. Thank you for your help!


CHAMPIONS


Please see the file below to learn more about Champions. Champions is a vendor who offers full-time childcare during the school closure. Students can bring their devices so they are engaged in Distance Learning.


FACEBOOK


Eagle Canyon has added a public Facebook page. We will continue to also have a Facebook group where families can share photos in the comments. The Eagle Canyon Facebook page is a public page for announcements only. We will not share pictures of students on the Facebook page.


Thank you for your continued support,

Mrs. Bearden
