The Eagle's Nest

Week of September 19-23

Happy Sunday Eagles!

It's been a busy week at Clyde Erwin Elementary School! Our teachers have started beginning of year assessments in reading and math, and our third-grade students took the Beginning Of Grade reading test. We also kicked off the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month! Students in our dual-language immersion classrooms learned about different Hispanic countries and celebrated Independence Day. We ended the week "smiling" as our students took Fall pictures. Information about picture makeups will be available soon.


We have six important reminders for you this week:


1. This Thursday, September 22, is an Early Release Day. We will begin dismissal of car riders at 11:45 a.m., bus riders/walkups/walkers/daycare at 11:50 a.m. A reminder that there is no YMCA on early release days, please make sure your child's teacher knows how your student will go home on this day.


2. We have had an increase in early checkouts recently. Please remember that our instructional day ends at 2:50 p.m. We don't want students to miss out on important instruction. We will continue our policy of no early checkouts or transportation changes after 2:30 p.m.


3. If your student is required to turn in a health assessment and/or immunizations for school enrollment, please do so no later than September 29. For further information, please contact Nurse Briley at the school.


4. Consent forms for individual and group counseling were sent home with students this week. Please complete these forms and return them to school by September 29.


5. Fall Festival is coming soon, and we need your help! Come join us at a planning meeting on September 28 at 3:20 p.m. in the Media Center.


6. Save the date! Back to School Night will be September 29 from 5-7 p.m.
