The Eagle Academy Academic Policy Board (APB) is accepting applications to fill our vacant Community Member position – Seat G.


Being a charter school, we have the unique opportunity to have our own governing body, which is the Academic Policy Board. The Academic Policy Board is responsible for creating school policy, approving and monitoring the school's budget, setting and monitoring goals for the program, selecting curriculum that aligns with EACS standards, overseeing the implementation of Eagle Academy's program, ensuring adherence to the school's charter and policies, hiring/evaluating/supervising the principal, and participating in staff interviews - all in accordance with the school's Charter and Bylaws.


The Academic Policy Board consists of seven (7) members: four parents, one community member at large and two teachers of Eagle Academy. The parent positions must be filled by parents of students currently attending Eagle Academy and may not be filled by teachers, permanent staff members, or long-term temporary staff members of Eagle Academy. The community member may be a parent or classified employee but may not be a certificated staff member.


Please see the attached application for more details. If interested, please return the application by email to v.m.hall@outlook.com by Sunday, 12/20.

Cookie Bakers (and Buyers!), It's Time to Rev Your Ovens!

2020 notwithstanding, the ~2700 single military in the JBER barracks and dorms WILL receive one dozen (VERY SAFELY) bagged cookies this year!


The Elmendorf Richardson Spouses’ Club is partnering with USO Alaska and Air Force and Army leaders to organize this effort. But the most important participant is YOU - because we’re going to need a really really big number of cookies, as in ~36000 (give or take a 1000) if we want to make sure every single JBER service person can rip into a bag packed with a variety of cookies!


Please distribute the attached flyer to anyone or any organizations capable of baking or buying cookies for our single service members. All details per dates, drop-off locations, and so forth are included on the flyer.


Let’s bake like it’s 2021!

YEARBOOK

Hello All!


I am getting the yearbook set up, and wondered if there was anyone that wanted to help work on it this year? Things are kind of up in the air on how it will all work out, but hoping to do some brainstorming with those that might want to participate.


If you are interested or have questions, send me an email or a text. jeeperjoebundy@yahoo.com or (907) 884-5008.


Thanks, Jennifer Bundy

December recognizes National Human Rights Month. This month and every month to follow, everyone in the United States is encouraged to come together and stand up for equality, justice, and the dignity of all humans. December is a time to honor the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, an international document stating the fundamental rights and freedoms to which all human beings are entitled. These rights include freedom from discrimination, the right to equality, and the right to be considered innocent until proven guilty.


“Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home — so close and so small they they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.”

-Eleanor Roosevelt
