Eastwood Elementary Update

February, 2019

Important Information - Change in delay schedule!

Hi everyone, the decision was made that on Monday, February 4th, we will have a regular, full day of class. It was initially scheduled to be a 2-hour delay day for teacher professional development, but with the cancellations and delays, we are changing it back to a regular day.


We would like to welcome Mrs. Shelly Vejan to Eastwood Elementary. With the retirement of Carolyn Lind, we interviewed in January and Shelly will begin as a secretary in February. Welcome Shelly!

I would also like to thank Shirley Blausey for subbing in January for us and helping with the transition. Thank you Shirley, we really appreciate all that you have done for us!

PTO News

There are a few things that we wanted to remind you of for the PTO.

A letter was sent home about the upcoming dance and the request for donations for baskets to be raffled off at the dance.

You need to RSVP for the dance, which is on Feb. 9th, as we need to have a count of who is planning to attend.

Winter is here!

Please remember that when possible, we will be taking students outside for recess. When the windchill is at or above 20 degrees and the playground is not icy or it is raining, we will try to get our students out into the fresh air. Please have gloves and hats for your children. If you need assistance with those items, let us know and we can help.

Physical Education notes from Mr. Hoffmann

Jump Rope For Heart will be February 11-15. Any money raised is due during that week. Field Day is scheduled for May 10th with a rain date May 13th. Field Day will be the same as last year in that the focus is on team work and sportsmanship, as well as trying to give your best effort.

Mrs. Saunders- 5th grade

Congratulations to the 5th grade students who completed the Winter Break Reading Challenge. Fifth graders were challenged to read at least 30 minutes each day off school and these students went above and beyond with their reading requirements. These students were treated to a pizza party to celebrate their hard work and accomplishments. Keep up the great work!
