ERES PROUD Headlines...

March 9, 2015

5 Points from the AP.

Anne update - you should have received a school messenger from Mrs. Seaberry this morning! She had some positive news to share on her journey which directly impacts her recovery time! Good news! Please send positive thoughts and prayers on March 12 as Anne has her surgery. I know they are much appreciated!

Spring Break - enjoy your week with family and hopefully resting up a bit! We look forward to lots of exciting stories when kiddos return!!

Testing - This is just a heads up and more information will come as we get closer, but STAAR testing days are coming soon. March 30 & 31 as well as April 21 & 22 are the primary testing days, but please be aware that we do close the campus to visitors and volunteers those weeks for testing security purposes. Again, more information will come home as we get closer.

ObSuessed with Reading - Check out your kiddo's backpack for the Obsuessed with Reading log! They finally arrived with all the weather issues this past week. We're going to run a social media contest over Spring Break to help encourage our kiddos to read over the break! Post and share pictures of your students reading over the break and include the #EREPROUD hashtag. At the end of the week, we'll select a winner and they will earn their class extra recess!! Keep up that reading momentum over the break!!

Social Media norms - just a quick reminder of our social media norms as we run this contest as well as in general. Eagle Ridge social media is a platform to share information, keep you up to date with the exciting things happening and engage with you wherever you are! It is not the place to air personal grievances and posts of that nature will be deleted. If there is a problem, an issue with something posted or with anything at all, PLEASE, PLEASE call or e-mail us so we can help find solution! Click the link for our Social Media Norms.

Obseussed With Reading

Tardy to school

Because of the very high numbers of tardy students, I must remind you of the necessity of having your child(ren) to school on time. Not only are they missing our fun morning announcements; an opportunity to learn, but interrupting the learning of everyone else in his/her classroom. When your child walks in the classroom, the teacher must stop what she/he is doing to get him or her caught up. Please help us offer the best educational experience for all of our students by having your child arrive on time. Thank you!
It's KISD Film Festival time...

This would be a great Spring Break activity!! Click above for information about it. This is the seventh year of the Film Festival, and we are currently accepting online entries.

Surveys!

Please take a moment to take the two surveys linked below. They truly help us to improve what we do with kids and how we communicate and work with our families!
