EV Families: Popcorn Tuesday tomorrow, 50 cents a bag!
Please check out the FCSC Teacher Tribute at this link.
I have spent 22 years in education and have worked all over the state of Indiana. In my former job with the Indiana Department of Education, one of my main roles was developing & recognizing teacher talent across the state. I know how challenging yet rewarding it is to teach, I know what sets great teachers apart from good teachers, whether it's an urban, suburban, or rural setting - & thus I know with confidence that the Eastview Staff is an incredibly talented & dedicated group of people. For different reasons, each teacher in this building is worthy of the recognition.

EV Families: Quick reminder that our Canned Food Drive is taking place this week! I was out sick last Friday and thus missed the normal Friday update. Principal Kates
Book Fair next week (Nov. 8 - Nov. 12): The kids are so excited! While we will not have a "Parent Night", all kids will get two chances to attend the Book Fair next week (early in the week & again toward the end of the week). Parents can also set up an "ewallet" and shop at the link below!
Note: If sending cash with kids, please do so in as secure a manner as possible - sealed in a labeled envelope for instance. Loose cash is not good!
Spirit Day tomorrow to support Football Team! Wear as much red & white as you can!
Expect my regular weekly update tomorrow afternoon with more info about these next few weeks!
Eastview is hiring: We are looking for Special Education assistants who want to work in a positive & rewarding environment. If you are interested, please email me at email@example.com
