Spring is in the Air
Dear Eatonville Community,
This is the time we feel that Spring is the air, in spite of the cold wind we get now and again :) With Springtime comes a renewed sense of focus, a renewed joy, and the promise of sunshine and laughter. In schools children and adults seem to smile a bit more, and steps are lighter as we know we will round out the next few months together. That being said, please make note of the list of events in this newsletter and make sure to mark these dates in your calendars.
As we progress through April, I want to take time out to thank all of our families for your diligence in having your child(ren) to school on time whether remote or in-person and well-prepared for learning each day. This both supports and optimizes our instructional goals for each child, and aids us in helping your child be as successful as he/she can.
As we plunge into Spring, please make sure, too, to keep reading, reading, and reading some more with your child. We know that families set the standard for children becoming learners.
We are an exceptional learning community comprised of parents, teachers, students and administrators. Together, we are Eatonville Strong: Springtime is here!
