Eagle Academy encourages academic excellence by integrating proven instructional methods with a challenging curriculum and high expectations.This combination provides every child with the foundation needed to achieve proficiency of Eagle Academy’s performance standards at each instructional level.
DID YOU GET YOUR HOMEWORK DONE?
Children learn about life from the examples and expectations set by their parents and/or guardians. You've done your homework and selected Eagle Academy as your school of choice. We are honored that you have chosen EACS. Our tradition of excellence and the success of our former students are our legacy.
Attendance at EACS is not a guarantee of success. Our highly trained Spalding and Saxon educators do a fabulous job, however, your student's success is ultimately predicated on your commitment to supporting your child at home. It is essential for parents to stay actively involved in your child’s education, encourage learning, and ensure that daily homework assignments are completed. Practice assignments do improve scores on class tests and assessments at all grade levels.
According to an article about parental involvement at Education Week.org, children who have an encouraging support group earn better grades, attend school regularly, and have better social skills.
Parental involvement is more than just showing up for a scheduled parent-teacher conference or popular school events. Parents need to take an active role in their child’s “educational career”.
How Can You Help
- Monitor your students while they do their homework.
- Double-check your student's homework assignments for accuracy and completeness.

“Sesame Street” debuts
On November 10, 1969, “Sesame Street,” a pioneering TV show that would teach generations of young children the alphabet and how to count, makes its broadcast debut. “Sesame Street,” with its memorable theme song (“Can you tell me how to get/How to get to Sesame Street”), went on to become the most widely viewed children’s program in the world. It has aired in more than 120 countries.
World War I Ends
At the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, the Great War ends. At 5 a.m. that morning, Germany, bereft of manpower and supplies and faced with imminent invasion, signed an armistice agreement with the Allies in a railroad car outside Compiégne, France. The First World War left nine million soldiers dead and 21 million wounded, with Germany, Russia, Austria-Hungary, France, and Great Britain each losing nearly a million or more lives. In addition, at least five million civilians died from disease, starvation, or exposure.
Dedication of the Tomb of the Unknowns
On November 11, 1921, exactly three years after the end of World War I, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is dedicated at Arlington Cemetery in Virginia during an Armistice Day ceremony presided over by President Warren G. Harding.
Two days before, an unknown American soldier, who had fallen somewhere on a World War I battlefield, arrived at the nation’s capital from a military cemetery in France. On Armistice Day, in the presence of President Harding and other government, military, and international dignitaries, the unknown soldier was buried with highest honors beside the Memorial Amphitheater. As the soldier was lowered to his final resting place, a two-inch layer of soil brought from France was placed below his coffin so that he might rest forever atop the earth on which he died.
Ellis Island closes
On November 12, 1954, Ellis Island, the gateway to America, shuts it doors after processing more than 12 million immigrants since opening in 1892. Today, an estimated 40 percent of all Americans can trace their roots through Ellis Island, located in New York Harbor off the New Jersey coast and named for merchant Samuel Ellis, who owned the land in the 1770s.
On January 2, 1892, 15-year-old Annie Moore, from Ireland, became the first person to pass through the newly opened Ellis Island, which President Benjamin Harrison designated as America’s first federal immigration center in 1890. Before that time, the processing of immigrants had been handled by individual states.
Microsoft releases Xbox gaming console
Microsoft releases the Xbox gaming console on November 15, 2001, dramatically influencing the history of consumer entertainment technology.
Microsoft CEO Bill Gates first decided to venture into the video game market because he feared that gaming consoles would soon compete with personal computers. At the time, Japanese companies Sony and Nintendo dominated the field, and no American company had challenged them since Atari ceased selling its Jaguar console in 1996.
