Dear Eaton Families,

We had a fun week celebrating Spirit Week, and the 100th Day of School. We enjoyed seeing all of the fun hats and creative crazy hair styles. Students enjoyed sporting their favorite college gear, and wacky-tacky dress day was so much fun! We always love closing out the week on Fridays in our Eaton spirit wear. Thank you everyone for joining in on the fun this week. We love our Eaton Olympians, and appreciate all of the support from our families.

From the publisher's website:

The first book in a hilarious chapter book series that tackles anxiety in a fun, kid-friendly way. Perfect for both beginning and reluctant readers, and fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid!


A humorous and touching series about facing your fears and embracing new experiences—with a truly unforgettable character—from author Lenore Look and New York Times bestselling and Caldecott Honor winning illustrator LeUyen Pham.


Alvin, an Asian American second grader, is afraid of everything—elevators, tunnels, girls, and, most of all, school. He’s so afraid of school that, while he’s there, he never, ever, says a word. But at home, Alvin is a very loud superhero named Firecracker Man, a brother to Calvin and Anibelly, and a gentleman-in-training, just like his dad. With the help of his family, can Alvin take on the outside world without letting his fears get the best of him?
