Eaton Parent Newsletter

May 6th, 2022

Dear Eaton Families,

Thank you to our wonderful Eaton Families and our amazing PTA, for showing our staff members so much love and appreciation this past week! We all looked forward to the special treats each day. The PT's food truck for lunch on Monday was a wonderful way to start our week. Coming to school on Tuesday to a yummy breakfast was such a treat. We were blown away by all of the snacks on Wednesday. Islands for lunch on cinco de mayo was festive and fun! Friday was fabulous with all of the delicious desserts, plus the leftovers. The flowers, cards, gifts of appreciation and kind words made us all feel so special. Your kindness and generosity were greatly appreciated. Our Eaton Olympian students and families are the best!


Our Olympians had another busy week. 3rd, 4th and 5th graders worked hard on their NC Check In Math assessment. Next week Interim Reports will come home on Wednesday, May 11th.

End-of-Grade (EOG) Assessments @ Eaton

Our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students will participate in End-of-Grade (EOG) assessments. These are state-assessments based on grade level standards. 3rd and 4th graders will take the EOG assessments in Reading and Math. 5th graders will take the EOG assessments in Reading, Math and Science.


Please contact Mrs. Allen if you are interested in being a Proctor at Eaton for the EOGs. Proctors must be Level 2 volunteers, and are not allowed to proctor in a testing session with someone who is related to them.


EOG Assessment Dates:

May 26th, Science EOG (5th Grade)

May 27th, Reading EOG (3rd, 4th & 5th Grades)

June 2nd, Math EOG (4th & 5th Grades)


In addition to EOG assessments, some 3rd graders will be invited to take the Read to Achieve (RTA) assessment on June 3rd. This assessment is for 3rd grade students who are not proficient in reading. It is an additional opportunity for 3rd grade students to show proficiency in reading. You will receive a phone call after the Reading EOG if your 3rd grader is invited to take this assessment.
