Conferences

Parent-Teacher conferences are Monday, Tuesday, & Thursday this week. Please let me know if you are NOT going to be able to make your scheduled time. If you cannot remember when your scheduled time is, please contact the front office.


I know that families are very busy, but if possible, I really like to have your child with you at your conference. If it won't work, no worries.


I look forward to seeing you all this week!

Food Drive

Eagle Creek is having a food drive November 13th - 17th. Fifth grade students are asked to bring in boxes of pasta. All of the food collected helps students here at Eagle Creek.

Native American Performance

We will be going to West Junior High on Tuesday to see a Native American performance organized by the music department. It's from about 9:45-11:30, so we'll have our regular lunch/recess and normal afternoon.
