Dear Eaton Families,
We are happy to be back in school together! We are looking forward to a busy quarter. Our Olympians jumped right in this week and are working hard for a strong finish to a great school year.
Next week is a busy week. We are excited that some of our Olympians will be participating in the Special Olympics. Our Kindergarten classes are going on a field trip to the aquarium. 3rd, 4th and 5th graders are taking the NC Check In Reading assessment.
We are all looking forward to Eaton's Fun Field Day on May 20th. Please save the date. We will need volunteers to help run the stations. More information will be coming soon.
End-of-Grade (EOG) Assessments @ Eaton
Please contact Mrs. Allen if you are interested in being a Proctor at Eaton for the EOGs. Proctors must be Level 2 volunteers, and are not allowed to proctor in a testing session with someone who is related to them.

May 27th, Reading EOG (3rd, 4th & 5th Grades)

In addition to EOG assessments, some 3rd graders will be invited to take the Read to Achieve (RTA) assessment on June 3rd. This assessment is for 3rd grade students who are not proficient in reading. It is an additional opportunity for 3rd grade students to show proficiency in reading. You will receive a phone call after the Reading EOG if your 3rd grader is invited to take this assessment.
