Schedule for the Week

  • Monday - Friday; Normal Schedule; All after school activities resume this week.
  • Monday- K-5 Grade Cards will be emailed today.

Project On-Track, Tutoring, Chorus, Lego League are all starting back this week.

NWEA TESTING

K-5 will begin NWEA testing soon. Teachers have a two week window and will decide test during part of their day. The window is open now. The students will be tested to measure growth in the areas of Reading and Math. Please remind your student to try their best and show all they know. Many students rush through the test and do not always show their accurate levels. These tests are used as a formative assessment and are not recorded as a grade. We do use the data to help us with differentiated instruction and for identifying students for our RTI Reading and Math groups.

Attendance Notification Begins

Starting Monday, January 10th if your student is tardy or absent you will receive a text and email notification. This notification will alert parents and keep them notified about attendance and will also remind parents about sending in parent notes, dr notes, or submitting excuses on-line. Each child can use three parent notes per semester. Each note serves as 1 excused absence. Dr. notes also serve as an excused absence. ALL notes must be received in 48 hours. Teachers do not check backpacks for notes, so we ask for adults to bring the notes to the office if you think your child may be too young for this task.


THE EASIEST METHOD: Submit your excuses online. Go to EastView website (https://eastview.gcschools.net) and find the PARENTS tab. Under this tab select ON LINE ABSENTEE and complete the simple Microsoft form.

Lost and Found

Please ask your student to check our Lost and Found. We have several items that have been left behind (jackets, hats, water bottles, lunch boxes, etc).
