Eagle Valley Elementary Families:
Halloween at Eagle Valley was just splendid. Students, staff and parents really enjoyed the Parade, Octoberfest and other festivities. Thanks for joining us in these events and also for the wonderful PTA Carnival. We express appreciation to PTA for all they do.
PTA has also sponsored D.O.G.S. at our school this year. This stands for “Dads of Good Students”. More than 70 fathers were trained. Every week several fathers come to our school and, with watchful eyes, help to keep our students safe. Thanks to our great PTA, Mrs. Washburn and our fathers.
Thanksgiving and Christmas will soon be upon us, along with the many wonderful things that teachers and families do during this season. I want to express my thanks for all that each of you do to make Eagle Valley Elementary and Eagle Mountain wonderful places for our children and families. We are fortunate to have so many great people who work, serve and live together in this marvelous community.
Our next PTA Family Movie Night will be on November 15th at 6:00 p.m.. Come on over and watch a good, family movie and eat some tasty popcorn. In December we will have our Annual Eagle Valley Elementary Christmas Program on 12/19 at 5:30. Come feel the Christmas spirit as our students sing. Thanks to Ms. Poulsen for conducting this event.
School breaks will be on November 27-29th and December 23rd-January 3rd, with school resuming on January 6th, 2014. (Can you believe that we are getting ready to start 2014? Wow!)
Our HEROES program has been a huge success as Eagle Valley promotes the need for safety, being friends and wiping out bullying in Eagle Mountain Town Center. Thanks to all who make this program work. Every month several students are honored at our Recognition Assemblies for being our school HEROES. We do not need movies stars and NFL athletes at EVES to be our HEROES. We have great students, teachers and parents who define what true HEROES do for others.
School Community Council has met twice and continues to support our school’s efforts to enhance student learning and achievement. On this site you can also note who your representatives are. Contact them if you have ideas about how we can improve the learning of our students. We are focusing on using technology to support student learning, especially in our core subjects, and particularly in reading and writing. The council again funded the IXL Math and My Access writing programs. Student achievement vastly improved last spring as a result of these efforts. The Trust Lands Grant, combined with grant dollars from Alpine School District, also allowed us to hire Double Dosing aides to tutor students who need that extra support.
Have a terrific Thanksgiving and Christmas season and “Remember to Read!”. GO EAGLES!
