Updates and Reminders

Eastview Elementary School - December 11, 2015


I would like to thank everyone that contributed to our awesome literacy night and Christmas program! I had a number of parents tell me how beautiful the building looked, how much fun they had with their families, and how that our musical was the best school program they've ever been too! I'm so grateful for all that you do for our kiddos and community!

Here are some upcoming events.

Next Week:


Tuesday: CC @8:15 (Meyers, Sherck)

Wednesday: RTI meetings during planning times (Katie will be here for grades 3-6, Gr. 2 will be rescheduled because Missy and Liz have EDM pilot training in the afternoon)

Thursday: SIP Team Meeting @ 2:00

Friday: Popcorn Friday, CMS Choir at 1:45, Christmas Break Begins, Second 9 Weeks Ends

Thank you all for your support!



  • Please remember to send change of transportation notes to the office in the am.

    Students are to go home their routine way unless there is a phone call or

    note to change that.

    If a student is adamant there is change, please contact parent before the

    end of the day to verify.

  • Please remember to let both Brenda, and I know if you are going to be out for a sick or personal day. Please do not just put this in Aesop without letting us both know (even if you do not require a sub). An email to both of us is fine.

To Do

  • Please send a list of planned MLK Day activities by January 4.
  • Remember to have your safeschools training completed by January.
  • Continue to check Lexia and Dreambox usage and make adjustments so kiddos can reach their weekly goals. Please make sure you are logging into your account at least once per week to see what your kiddos are learning
