Bobcat Bulletin October 4, 2022

Keep Going Keep Growing


Greetings Bobcat Families!

I hope this message finds all of you safe and sound as we begin the arduous process of rebuilding our Southwest Florida Community after a category 4 hurricane. I know it’s hard to believe, but we haven’t seen our Bobcat students in 12 calendar days, and we look forward to welcoming them back on campus this Thursday, October 6th, 2022.

We have so much to look forward to in the month of October. We will begin the month with our annual Walk-A-Thon during related arts time. As a Blue-Zone approved school, we recognize the importance of physical activity and working out physically and mentally throughout the school day. Additionally, October 15th is our CCPS 5K – Eden Park Elementary has 24 staff/family members already signed up for the race and we would love to see some of our students attend as well. Please visit for details.

This month students will be focusing on responsibility and data (put first things first). We will also be discussing resiliency and our ability to bounce back from life’s challenges and unforeseen difficulties. How appropriate is this, given our current circumstances with Hurricane Ian?

Finally, almost all of us know a friend or family member who has suffered a total or partial loss due to Hurricane Ian. Our EPE family is here for you. If there is anything we can do to assist you, please complete the private form here:

In Partnership,

Chrissy Anderson

Our Media Center

Hello Eden Park Bobcat Families!

We are happy to share that our beginning of year Media Orientations went well. Students are enjoying checking in and checking out books.

  • Kindergarten and first grade read-a-louds have begun and students are allowed to check out one book.
  • Second grade students are allowed to check out two books – one on their Lexile and one book of choice.
  • New to 3rd - 5th grade this year: students with accounts in good standing are allowed to check out 3 library books. They may check out two books on their Lexile and one book of choice. The students seem very excited about the new limit.

Students are allowed to keep their books for two weeks but can renew them if they haven’t finished reading the books. To help keep books safe and dry, it is suggested to store them in a large Ziploc bag in their backpacks.

Thank you and Happy Reading!

Mrs. Carpenter
