Dear Eaton Families,

This was a busy, and fun, week for our Olympians. We are proud of our students who participated in the Special Olympics on Friday. Our Kindergarten classes were so excited to go on their very first field trip this week. They had a great time at the aquarium! 3rd, 4th and 5th graders worked hard on their NC Check In Reading assessment. Next week they will take the NC Check In Math assessment.

Next week, May 2nd-6th, is Teacher Appreciation Week! We value and appreciate all of our hard-working teachers, teacher assistants, paraeducators, support personnel, custodians, cafeteria and office staff members. We encourage you to let them know how much they are appreciated.

We are all looking forward to Eaton's Fun Field Day on May 20th.

  • K-2nd Grades 8:45-10:45
  • 3rd-5th Grades 11:45-1:45

We need volunteers to help run the stations. Please use this link to sign up if you are interested in helping Coach Tew

We are grateful for all of our wonderful volunteers! As a thank you for all that you do, we would like to invite you to our Volunteer Breakfast on Friday, May 13th, at 8:00. It will be held in the cafeteria. We hope you can join us!


Yearbooks will be sent home mid May. The process for purchasing yearbooks is similar to the school picture process. If you would like to keep the yearbook then you will submit payment, or if you decide you would not like the yearbook you will need to return it to school. Yearbooks are $17.00.

Mall Art Show - Monday, April 25- Monday, May 2, 2022

The NHC Mall Art Show returns to Independence Mall on Oleander Drive. It is hard to believe that the 2021-2022 school year is almost over! We have been very busy in the art room. The theme of this year's show is Art Through the Ages and will feature a variety of art from the ancient world to Impressionism. Come to the mall, see the stunning artwork, and show your support for our talented Olympians.

End-of-Grade (EOG) Assessments @ Eaton

Our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students will participate in End-of-Grade (EOG) assessments. These are state-assessments based on grade level standards. 3rd and 4th graders will take the EOG assessments in Reading and Math. 5th graders will take the EOG assessments in Reading, Math and Science.

Please contact Mrs. Allen if you are interested in being a Proctor at Eaton for the EOGs. Proctors must be Level 2 volunteers, and are not allowed to proctor in a testing session with someone who is related to them.

EOG Assessment Dates:

May 26th, Science EOG (5th Grade)

May 27th, Reading EOG (3rd, 4th & 5th Grades)

June 1st, Math EOG (3rd Grade)

June 2nd, Math EOG (4th & 5th Grades)

In addition to EOG assessments, some 3rd graders will be invited to take the Read to Achieve (RTA) assessment on June 3rd. This assessment is for 3rd grade students who are not proficient in reading. It is an additional opportunity for 3rd grade students to show proficiency in reading. You will receive a phone call after the Reading EOG if your 3rd grader is invited to take this assessment.
