CLIMATE & CONNECTEDNESS SURVEY
We value input from our families. You are an important partner as we work to continually improve each school’s environment. Each parent/guardian is asked to complete one survey.
You can access the survey via the following websites:
Then enter the code: eagleacademyfamily
Results from this survey will be used to identify family perceptions of school climate issues within our school(s). School staff use the results to inform their efforts to ensure schools are safe, supportive, and caring places for all students.

DONATIONS FOR NEWBORNS IN NEED
Baby Item Collection for Newborns in Need. The student council researched local charitable organizations and then voted to collect and donate baby items to the local chapter of Newborns in Need.
Their mission: “We exist because Newborns in Need, made up of volunteers across the United States, is dedicated to making sure that the teen mom, the stressed family, the mother overwhelmed in sadness is supported in the first moments of the child’s life. The “911” for babies, Newborns In Need is the organization mobilized across the United States to offer baby items to those families who need help. Raising awareness, opening new chapters, Newborns In Need believes that communities can and will help each other if given the vehicle to do so. Whether crafted with love by the hands of a volunteer or donated by others who understand we need to take care of each other, Newborns In Need has positioned itself as the first response for the baby in crisis.”
Items on the Wish List:
- Sleepers, gowns, undershirts, and onesies (preemie & newborn-three months)
- Clothing new and gently used in sizes newborn to 12 months
- Receiving blankets, quilts (approximately 35 X 45) fleece blankets and afghans (30 X 30 and larger)
- Socks, booties
- Bibs, burp cloths, pacifiers, and bottles – BPA free
- Toiletries and wipes, regular size and trial sizes
- Diapers and pull-ups (all sizes, with most emphasis on newborn size)

We will collect items starting February 10th and going until February 21st. There will be a collection box in each classroom.
BOOK CHARACTER DAY
Policy Change Consideration
The Academic Policy Board is considering a policy change regarding staff dress code. The change would revise language found on page 18 of the Policies & Procedures Manual regarding staff dress code to the following (highlighted portion is the revision):
- Eagle Academy Charter School employees (including substitutes) are expected to model professionalism at all times and to dress in a manner that enhances the school's public image. The public must be able to differentiate between students and the school staff. Staff shall adhere to all dress and grooming policies during regular school business hours.
A change in policy requires it to be put out as public notice to allow input from the school community. Input can be given by attending our next meeting (Feb. 4th, 5:45 pm) and sharing during public comment, or can be given by emailing an APB member and asking it to be shared at the next meeting.
