Parents, we are ready for you!

Teachers have worked long and hard to get all of your children's things returned to you, and that includes their Art work!

Things to remember:

1. Come anytime on Thurs.(8 am to 10 am) / (4 pm to 6 pm) or Friday (11am to 1 pm) to pick up your supplies!

2. Please have your CAR TAG hanging from your mirror or a piece of paper with your child's Car Tag # (if you know it) and student's first & last name/grade/teacher. If you are picking up for multiple children, please list all student names on the paper.

3. Pull through the FRONT DRIVE where morning drop off is. Cars may line the street along Ethridge Dr. going past the playground if necessary.

3. We will hand you your child's/Children's school items in brown paper bags and we will be wearing masks/gloves.

5. Bring your LIBRARY books and Level little readers to return to hand us through your car window.

Do you know what Library Books your child has checked out??

Mrs. E would like to ask that you turn in all library books when you pick up your child's supplies. She has sent an email to each student’s email account. The email has the books that they have checked out. In case you would like to see their account yourself, here is the link:


(This link explains how to check each student’s Destiny account)

PTA General Meeting!

Hello Eagle PTA Parents!

We need to send our PTA families a PTA Meeting invite so that PTA can conduct some business and have items approved. Without PTA member participation and approval on certain line items, they can not move forward with plans for next year! Thanks for filling out this quick survey just asking you to respond if you are a PTA member!! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd8HeEEGNRSi6s1FkMZMFhKfi0Hh90wjPzDa5kTx15OQT9dow/viewform?vc=0&c=0&w=1

Looks like Coach is having some fun! Check it out!

Helping your child grow as a Reader!

Don't forget that students will need to read their own books at home or online books that are able to be read on a computer or device. Children love when parents/teachers read a chigh interest chapter book to them. Contact your child's teacher for suggestions!
