I had to go back to check on the experiment: A K and 5th grade collaboration!
Not even 3 full weeks to go, end of the longest teaching year ever, yet Eastview staff & students both are focused & engaged in learning. This experiment is just one example, across the building students are researching animals, learning scientific concepts through tie-dying shirts, creating digital book "trailers", and much more. I'm proud of our staff. I'm proud of our kids. I'm appreciative of our parents and community.
April Students of the Month (focus was on Pride) - great job Eagle Leaders!

Our new window graphics look incredible. Not just aesthetics, as we also added a safety film. Thank you to some talented & dedicated people behind the scenes for writing grants and designing the art. It takes a village. First of many steps we're taking over the next several months to upgrade our learning environment; kids deserve to walk into a building each day that they can take deep pride in, where they can feel a strong sense of community. Best is yet to come, Eastview!

I don't recall approving this poster. Maybe it was when I told Student Council "I'll pretty much do anything....make it as ridiculous as you want...if it's for a good cause and for the kids, let's do it.." Maybe that was it?
Families: State testing starts tomorrow, 4/20, grades 3 through 6. We are so proud of our kids. Get outside and be active at night, get to bed, and most importantly just show up with an "I got this" attitude. Tests are an important measure of our kids' development, but they are limited in what they tell us about the human beings we're all working together to nurture. I'm impressed by how our kids have grown academically, but moreover I'm proud of how they've developed throughout the last year as people. Parents & guardians, we're a team...keep the vibes positive and get those kids to bed!
Sarah Paxton (L) and Mary Callahan (R) are Life Skills teachers at Eastview Elementary. During the month of March they held a fundraiser for Down Syndrome Day on March 21, 2021. Students were asked to bring in change for two weeks. The fundraiser was called Change For Change. The students and staff brought in $1406.03!!!!! A huge thank you to the students and staff for supporting Life Skills and Down Syndrome. The money was sent to Down Syndrome Indiana.
We're excited to announce the Students of the Month for March. Our character focus was on demonstrating a "growth mindset" - we're proud of our Eagle Leaders!
