Classroom Connections Night!

This Thursday, September 15th will be our Eagle Creek Classroom Connections Nights for parents of students in grades 1, 3, and 5. The session is either 5:30-6:00pm OR 6:10-6:40pm. If possible, this night is most productive when it is just adults in attendance. This is a great opportunity to find out about 5th grade and ask general questions about our classroom. I look forward to seeing you on Thursday!

Monday/Red Folders:

*Field trip permission slip (went home last week) - please sign and return


*Tan 1/2 sheet will be coming home this week, so that we can get a count of the youngest/only child at Eagle Creek. New this year: most Monday Folder papers will go home only with the youngest/only child. Please return the form ASAP.


*A book order will be going home this week. My class code for ordering online will also be attached. This month's order will be due by the morning (before 10am) of this Friday. If you would like to pay by check, please make your check payable to Scholastic Book Club.
