A Special Announcement for 5th Grade Families!

5th Grade Drive Through Movin' On Up Celebration!

We are excited to announce that May 19th at 9:00 am will be a special celebration for our 5th graders who are Moving' On UP! We are very sad to not have our actual ceramony, but this will hopefully be very memorable. The 5th gr. teachers will also share with their classes the classic "Our 5th Grade Year" movie just like we would if we were in the cafe together. See the info flyer for ideas on how you can make this even more special for your 5th grader!

Regarding P.E. grades:

Here are a couple of links for April Fitness Check in and May Fitness Check In: https://forms.gle/aDHpiHCNyH1zvAar5


Please take a couple of minutes to respond to the April Fitness Check In (above) and respond to the May Fitness Check In in 2 - 3 weeks. That’s it for grades. No pics or videos mandatory. Pics/videos are for us to share on our Ethridge FB page.

Also, here is our May Fitness Calendar. Do with it what you will. We just wanted to give folks some ideas they could use to supplement their homemade PE. It is optional. The main thing is that our students are staying as active as possible and making some healthy choices along the way.


And here are some ideas for a homemade Field Day. Again optional.


If you have any pictures or videos of your @ home fitness plan or of your Homemade Field Day and you’d like to share them with our Ethridge & LISD community, please email them to Coach ingramj@lisd.net

PTA General Meeting!

Hello Eagle PTA Parents!

We need to send our PTA families a PTA Meeting invite so that PTA can conduct some business and have items approved. Without PTA member participation and approval on certain line items, they can not move forward with plans for next year! Thanks for filling out this quick survey just asking you to respond if you are a PTA member!! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd8HeEEGNRSi6s1FkMZMFhKfi0Hh90wjPzDa5kTx15OQT9dow/viewform?vc=0&c=0&w=1
