Mrs. Bearden's Weekly Update

August 8, 2022

Dear Eagle Canyon Families,

Welcome to the first week of the 2022-23 school year! We are excited to get the race started as staff and students race to success together at Eagle Canyon.

Thank you to all of you who attended our first Meet your Teacher since our last one in 2019. Our teachers and PTA made it a wonderful event.


This year, CVUSD schools have adjusted the school schedules to align with Senate Bill 328. Please see the linked Bell Schedule for the new arrival and dismissal times.

Bell Schedule

The students will be able to go to the amphitheater beginning at 7:20 a.m.

Many of your questions can be answered by checking our Eagle Canyon Student Handbook. It is always located on our school website and it is linked below. Topics are listed in alphabetical order, so if you need information about attendance, you can find attendance information located in section A.

Eagle Canyon has four new staff members this year. We are excited for you to meet them.

  • Ms. Le comes to us from Wickman Elementary and is joining the first-grade team along with Ms. Mejia who was hired last year.
  • Ms. Erickson is joining the third-grade team.
  • Ms. De Gennaro is joining the fifth-grade team.
  • Ms. Lanham has joined our team as the new Speech and Language Pathologist.

My mentor Mr. Mackessy, a retired CVUSD principal, offered to serve as our substitute assistant principal until our new assistant principal is board approved. We are all thankful to have his help.


Eagle Canyon will begin the modernization process this year. Contractors are already on campus preparing to move portables on the field. In addition, the campus will have some roofing work completed. As a result, there will be more traffic around campus than normal. Please be patient as the school district works with the contractors to update our campus.

Thank you for your continued support,

Mrs. Bearden

5th and 6th Grade Parents

We are excited to announce a wonderful opportunity for our 5th and 6th students who would like to sing and perform in concerts. Mrs. Gire, a credentialed teacher, has volunteered to provide a one-hour choir practice after-school on Wednesdays for our students. Any interested student must have a permission slip to participate.

Mrs. Gire has arranged for the choir to sing at the Christmas Tree lighting at the Shoppes in November. She will also work with Mr. Beltran to set up concerts with the band students.

Permission slips will go home with interested students on Monday. Please share this information with your child.

Join the Eagle Canyon PTA

Consider joining the PTA today! Your $10 PTA membership fee is an easy way for families to support the field trips and programs supported by the PTA. You can ask family and community members to join too.


Traffic before school and after school can be heavy. Please plan to leave your house early to avoid the rush. When picking up your 1st through 6th-grade child after school, plan to arrive ten minutes after dismissal to avoid a majority of the traffic.


We have a new procedure at the Bus Gate to ensure students are not crossing in front of cars to get to their parents. Teachers will only release students out of the Bus Gate when parents are pulled up to the curb or walk with their children. Student safety is our top priority before and after school.


Students are not allowed to walk in the parking lot without an adult. Please do not ask them to walk to your car. You must accompany them to ensure their safety.


Be sure to use crosswalks in the parking lot and on Eagle Canyon Drive. Teachers and staff will be on duty beginning at 7:40 a.m. to monitor crosswalks and stop traffic when needed.


A best practice to keep traffic moving is to ensure your child has all their belongings when you pull up to the cabanas. Please avoid having items in the trunk or back of the vehicle. As a safety measure, students should not have to walk in front of another car to get out of the car, get in the car, or get their belongings. Students can only exit/enter the car next to the curb.


The first couple of weeks is always more hectic in the parking lot. Please be courteous to your Eagle Canyon family. We all want everyone to remain safe while we work together to get over 600 students to and from school.

Thank you!


Wednesdays: Wear college/university shirts

Fridays: Wear Eagle Canyon spirit wear or our school colors, blue and yellow
