Happy New Year and welcome back!


We hope that you enjoyed a relaxing winter break and are recharged and ready to drive right into the new year. We welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and we look forward to renewing our working with you and your children.


As educators, we at Eagle Academy are thankful for all opportunities to impact young lives. Our students are the reason we’re here. As they returned to school this morning, the atmosphere was very positive.


As the second semester begins, the teachers, staff, and I have one vision for our students and we hope it closely matches yours. We want ALL of them to become all that they can be. We want them to strive for excellence through consistent attendance, perseverance, utilizing help from our faculty, and working diligently at home with you to reinforce those skills that are taught during class. We want this because these traits will build good habits that will be beneficial throughout their life. We expect a great deal from them because we believe that each and every one of our students are so very capable of reaching excellence!


Sincerely,

Deanne Carroll - Principal

CALLING ALL DADS

We would like to send out a special invitation to our dads to come spend some time volunteering so that our boys can have more opportunities to see and interact with men in the school environment. We believe that your presence in the building will be of great benefit in helping to build character in our young men.

  • Greenhouse clean-up and repairs (Mrs. Timberlake)
  • Storage Room Reorganization (front office)
  • Replace hooks in classrooms (front office)
  • Snow removal (anytime it snows. shovels are outside front entry)
  • Playground duty (referee/coach soccer, dodgeball, flag football, etc.)(front office)
  • Support in the classrooms (classroom teachers)

CITRUS ORDER UPDATE

Knock Knock, Who's There?, Orange, Orange Who?


"Orange" you glad our citrus is almost here?! Our fruit has been picked and sent to Seattle to ship up! It should be leaving Seattle Monday/Tuesday. Once we get a confirmed date of delivery (could range from later this week to early next week) we will let everyone know!


We could also use some helping hands to unload the fruit once it gets to the school! The truck usually arrives between 8-10 am, so if you are available during that window and can repeatedly lift 20 pound boxes - we need you! Thank you!
