Lets Shoot for a PERFECT (100% ) ATTENDANCE in October

Attendance Matters

We are moving into the fall OASIS count period. The "October Count" period sets our school's membership and ultimately determines the funding we receive from the State for 2019/20. If at all possible, please avoid scheduling non-emergency appointments or pulling students out for optional events/travel. It is critical that your student(s) be in attendance to be counted during this three week period. Every student, every day counts.

This year the count period runs from September 30 - October 25.

Afternoon Pick-Up is an exciting time for both parents and students. Eagle Academy Administration and Staff appreciate your patience and smiles as we try to get each of our precious students on their way home safely.

Just a gentle reminder: We share the parking lot and building with other organizations. If you arrive early and wish to be one of the fortunate few to be first in line, we ask that you refrain from blocking the handicapped parking spaces and crosswalk.

This greatly enhances student & staff safety reasons and the flow of traffic.


As part of their commitment to education and literacy programs in our community, the Eagle River chapter of the Rotary Club has made a donation to our school! A huge Thank You to the Eagle River Area Rotary Club for their generous donation to Eagle Academy.

Yosemite National Park established

On October 1st, 1890, Congress creates Yosemite National Park, home of such natural wonders as Half Dome and the giant sequoia trees. Environmental trailblazer John Muir (1838-1914) and his colleagues campaigned for the congressional action, which was signed into law by President Benjamin Harrison and paved the way for generations of hikers, campers and nature lovers, along with countless “Don’t Feed the Bears” signs.

Thurgood Marshall sworn in

Chief Justice Earl Warren swears in Thurgood Marshall, the first black justice of the U.S. Supreme Court on October 2nd, 1967. As chief counsel for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in the 1940s and ’50s, Marshall was the architect and executor of the legal strategy that ended the era of official racial segregation.

Sputnik launched

The Soviet Union inaugurates the “Space Age” with its launch of Sputnik, the world’s first artificial satellite. The spacecraft, named Sputnik after the Russian word for “satellite,” was launched on October 4th, 1957 at 10:29 p.m. Moscow time from the Tyuratam launch base in the Kazakh Republic. Sputnik had a diameter of 22 inches and weighed 184 pounds and circled Earth once every hour and 36 minutes.

The U.S. government, military, and scientific community were caught off guard by the Soviet technological achievement, and their united efforts to catch up with the Soviets heralded the beginning of the “space race.”
