Fourth Grade NAEP
A group of our fourth graders will represent thousands of others across the country on February 13th! Known as The Nation’s Report Card, NAEP is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what students in the United States know and can do. Learn more at http://1.usa.gov/1jVs1Wt
Fourth grade parents, please read the attached letter. For more information on this national assessment please visit these sites:
https://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/parents/
PTA Nominations
It is time for nominations for our 2017-2018 PTA board positions.  Nominate yourself or someone you know to serve on our Eagle Valley PTA.  The following positions need to be filled:  president-elect, secretary, treasure, membership, legislative, family life, education, safety, reflections chair, Watch DOGS chair and more positions.  Visit our school PTA website for more information or to contact PTA. Please submit name and contact information to the front office.
District Weather Updates
All weather-related interruptions to the typical school schedule will be posted on the district website and social media.  Please check the district site for information.
Attendance
New research shows nearly half of American parents underestimate the harm of school absences. The U.S. Department of Education, the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, and the Ad Council have partnered on Absences Add Up campaign to help parents keep their children in school and on a path to success.
A student who misses just two days of school each month (18 days total for the year) is considered chronically absent. However, many parents don’t realize that, even when excused or understandable, absences add up and can greatly impact a child’s education. In the United States, more than 6 million children are chronically absent from school each year.
SB286
Following state law, we are providing the following link to increase your awareness of signs and symptoms of child sexual abuse and the legal obligation of all adults 18 years of age and older to report possible abuse to Child Protective Services. There is a short training video at   https://pcau.enspark.com/ . Create an account to view the video.
Box Tops
January 3rd – February 17th Box Top for education competition! The class with the most Box Tops will get a bag of popcorn and have a snowball fight using recycled paper with Mrs. Tucker. Please make sure you mark your bag with your child’s teacher’s name (if in kindergarten, please add AM or PM).
DRAMA Update
The musical Peter Pan Jr is going to be amazing! We have about 80 students participating and they are working hard to learn their parts and memorize songs.   We also have a backstage crew that is working to create props.  This year we have many parents involved with our play and we are very thankful for their support and hard work.  We look forward to seeing you at our play the end of March!

Review News:
Battle of the Books 
Battle of the Books is a voluntary reading incentive program for students in grades 3-6. The purpose is simply to encourage students to read good books and have fun while competing with peers.  At Eagle Valley, we are committed to encourage “life-long reading.”
Students read the books on the list from now until March.  The “battle” is a game show style competition held in March. Teams earn points by answering questions about books they have read from the specific list.  At the end of the rounds, points are added up and the top 2 teams go onto the “Final Battle” in a school assembly.  The winning 5th/6th grade team gets to battle a team of teachers in the same assembly!
