We had a blast yesterday at Eastview with our Holiday Celebration.
Thank you PTO!
Thank you 6th Grade Student Leaders for hosting the games!
First annual "Nailed It" style Door Decorating Contest pictures are on the Eastview Elementary Facebook Page.
Please "like" to vote. Voting ends Thursday night!
All in good fun.
We need a donation of ping-pong balls! Yep, you read that right!
We are getting our S.O.A.R. project rolling.
Kids earn S.O.A.R. tickets, trade the ticket for a ping-pong ball, and then (as seen in the picture) kids get to come down and dump their classes' ping pong balls into our school-wide S.O.A.R. bin!
Do something awesome - get a ticket - feel good about it - and then help the school wide cause of filling the bin! Fill that bin!
Student Council chooses the prizes! We'll start small with pajama and hat days, but eventually work our way up to the wild stuff like taping the principal to a wall (yikes!)
Bottom line, we need more ping-pong balls! Any color, doesn't matter! A 60 pack is about $12. We could use about 5 or 6 sixty packs!
EV Families: Please see the PTO Flyer for the Santa Shop & Holiday Celebration.
Each student will get to go to the Santa Shop on either the 20th or 21st (during their normal Library Specials time). As noted on the flyer, students can purchase gifts for $2.00.
The Holiday Celebration is a separate event taking place on the last day before break, Wednesday the 23rd. More information to come!
PTO Meets tomorrow, Wednesday the 8th, at 3:00 in the library. All are welcome! (We are experimenting with different meetings times throughout the year.)
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.
Please click the link and praise our teachers! It will take you 2 minutes and mean the world to our team!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
. Thank you for considering joining our incredible team!
