April is Autism Awareness Month
April is autism awareness month and EastView is showing support by doing acts of kindness. Our students and staff are writing down their act of kindness to be added to our kindness wall. We are so excited to be showcasing the love and support from our students and staff. We will end our event on April 28th with a Blue Day for Autism.

MAY 2nd- ELECTION DAY/NO SCHOOL THAT DAY
Testing Schedules - BEGINS THIS TUESDAY
Grades 3-5 will begin testing on April 18th. The last day of testing will be April 26th.
Any student who misses a test will be required to make up the test when they return to school. PLEASE do not be absent unless it is absolutely necessary or an emergency. Do not schedule any appointments before noon. We will be testing!
Grades K-5 will take STAR during the month of May. This test helps us monitor growth and identify students who may need intervention through RTI, summer learning camp, or tutoring.
Arrival: Please make sure to have your students to school on time. Students in grades 3-5 should be here no later than 8:05, but by 8:00 am is even better.
Hunger: EVERY STUDENT may buy breakfast, but YOU MUST ARRIVE BY 7:50 am.
Students will test better if they are not hungry. So, please make sure they have had breakfast. The cafe closes at 8:00 am.
Rest: Please make sure your child has an early bedtime during testing. Thirty minutes earlier than normal is a great idea. Testing is tiring for students.
STUDENTS WHO ARE ABSENT DO HAVE TO MAKE UP THE TESTS. IF YOU ARE TARDY, YOU HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL THE CLASS FINISHES A TEST BEFORE JOINING THE CLASS. MORE THAN LIKELY, TARDY STUDENTS WILL HAVE TO WAIT AND TEST IN THE AFTERNOON.
NO SMART WATCHES
