Notes and News:
Character Trait: Reliable
Reliable: dependable, consistently good in quality or performance; able to be trusted
Ask your child what they think it means to be reliable. Have them identify ways people around them are reliable and make a plan for ways your child can show they are reliable.
Attendance: Help us all succeed!
-A 2008 study conducted by the Rodel Community Scholars at Arizona State University tracked students from kindergarten through high school and found that dropout patterns were linked with poor attendance, beginning in kindergarten.
We have been very lucky this year to receive a literacy grant that has provided Imagine Learning for our school. Imagine Learning is an adaptive literacy site that allows students to gain important skills in literacy. To continue to receive this program for free we need to have a minimum number of minutes for each child using the program. All students k-3 and some students 4-6 have been using Imagine Learning. Please help us reach our usage goals and have your child spend time at home using this helpful literacy program. Most parents report the easiest way to access Imagine Learning is to use the app but it can also be accessed on the web.

IMAGINE LEARNING: 4900030 (school number)
It is track request time! Please take a minute and fill out a track request for each child that will be attending Eagle Valley for the 2017-2018 school year. We use track requests to build and balance classes. A track request is for an entire school year. If you are moving over the summer out of our boundaries, please fill in the form so we have this information too. Please submit your family’s information before March 31st. Thank you!

In past years, we have had several winners from our school. UDOT recognized Eagle Valley as one of the top participating schools. Way to go! Let’s encourage our kids to walk to school and make safe decisions when walking, riding scooters, and biking. Please remind your students to park their bikes and scooters in the bike racks and secure them with a bike lock. Students need to always walk scooters and bikes while on school property.

We will have multiple opportunities for students to participate but remind your child to turn in their tickets.
Cookie Dough Fundraiser-Ends March 24th
Our spring fundraiser will help us finish paying for the digital marquee that was installed on Friday. The funds will also be used to add to our technology for student use.

Peter Pan Jr.
Your family is invited to come and enjoy our school production of Peter Pan Jr. this week. There have been hundreds of hours donated by teachers and parents and the students have worked tirelessly to learn their lines, songs, and choreography. We are sure you will enjoy the performance. Student council will have snacks for sell.

Improvements and Upgrades
Our front entry upgrades are progressing. The security cameras on the exterior and interior are installed and working. The coded locks are installed and will be programed this week. When the upgrades are complete, visitors will be admitted into the building by office staff through the new secure doors. There will be a buzzer button to push inside the first set of doors on the north wall. Office staff has a clear view on camera and there is an intercom for communication. The secure entrance is another way we are continually working to keep our students safe.
Last week we had cement work finished in the bus drop off lanes and parent drop off zone. The finishing piece is adding decorative rock. The rock was delivered last Friday. Please be patient and courteous to our district grounds and maintenance personnel as they reroute traffic during construction.
Our new digital marquee was installed Friday. Wow!! The electricians will be working to get it connected and working this week. Thank you for supporting our fundraisers this year which allowed us to purchase the marquee.
