Eagle Express December 2016

From Eagle Mountain Elementary

Tis the Season

We are so excited that the holidays are here at EME! I love the holidays, the smell of hot cocoa, twinkling tree lights, and the smell of cinnamon! The next few weeks EME will be full of holiday shopping, programs and parties! What a perfect time to engage all in the celebratory ways of writing and drawing! One of our community partners, 7 Eleven on Boat Club by Lake Country, is supporting us with a writing contest for our students! Also, remember our school-wide Eagle Express available to you and your children to write to each other and others: letters/cards are delivered each Thursday by our 4th graders!


Here are some dates to remember:


  • Nov. 28- Jan 6: 1st Grade Service Project: Share the Warmth


  • December 6-9: Holiday Shoppe is next week! PTA Holiday Shoppe is an opportunity for our students to learn the value of money, the gift of giving, and excitement of the holiday! Students will go to the Holiday Shoppe and have the opportunity to purchase gifts (all under $10.00) and wrap them (cash and checks only). Please check with your teacher on their assigned time for "shopping!" THANK YOU PTA for this amazing tradition!
