COG Safe Routes to School Public Meetings

Metro COG is offering public input meetings to collaborate with the community on the Fargo Safe Routes to School Plan. The intent of these meetings is to share information on existing conditions for walking and biking to school and gather comments from the community. The open houses will give families and community stakeholders an opportunity to provide input on issues and needs related to biking and walking. Everyone is invited to participate. Each meeting will be focused on the schools in that area (see below), but will also have information on the plan as a whole and the approach is consistent across all neighborhood/public input areas. The public meetings will be held at each middle school at the following times:

Location: Discovery Middle School – Lunchroom

Date: Monday, May 6

Time: 6-7:30 p.m.

Discussion and information focused on:

1. Discovery Middle School

2. Ed Clapp Elementary

3. Eagles Elementary

4. Centennial Elementary

5. Bennett Elementary

6. Kennedy Elementary

7. Oak Grove Lutheran Elementary

8. Sullivan Middle School

Eagles Student Perception Survey Results

Students in grades K-5 took the annual perception survey. The Eagles staff will be using this and other data for programming during the 2019-2020 school year.

Parent Information Meeting Resources from April 24

I appreciate those that were able to make our parent meeting to discuss behaviors and positive behavior support at Eagles. The topic of behaviors and how we are working to handle various situations have been in the news, click here for additional resources.


The orchestra teachers will be coming to 4th grade music classrooms during the month of May to show your child the instruments of the orchestra (violin, viola, cello and bass) and demonstrate the characteristics of each. Orchestra classes will begin next fall for 5th graders who are interested in being a part of the program.

Students and their parents/guardians are asked to attend one of the following rental nights from 5:00-7:00:

Thursday, May 16th at Carl Ben Eielson

Tuesday, May 21st at Ben Franklin

Thursday, May 23rd at Discovery

At the event, you can sign up to rent an instrument and purchase supplies. Also, please plan on attending one of the parent information sessions either at 5:00-5:30 or 6:00-6:30. The parent information session will give you a chance to ask any questions and learn about opportunities you will have in orchestra. Plan to spend a total of about one hour. You may go to one of the three music stores in the area if you are unable to attend any of these rental nights.

Please email Kathleen Thomas if you have specific questions. Thank you!


Book Fair Information.....May 21

We will be having a Buy One Get One Book Fair on May 21st! For every item a student purchases, they will get one free! Our goal is to promote more summer reading by providing an easy opportunity for students to receive more books! The fair will only be open for purchasing on May 21st, but students will have the opportunity to purchase both during the school day from 8:30am -3pm, and that evening from 6-7pm during our Eagles Spotlight Night. Watch for the book fair flier coming home with more information, as well as setting up an e-wallet for your student to purchase at school! Please contact Mrs. Hess in the library if you have any questions, or our PTA Book Fair Chair, Sascha Cariveau, if you are able to volunteer! Thank you for supporting our library and reading!
