Friday Fanfare      October 20, 2017

Weekly Recap: Our box-top contest isn’t quite done, yet! We’ve had about $1,400.00 worth of box tops so far this year – let’s keep it up, Eagles! We’re well on our way to the $8,450 goal. So far, Ryan C. is leading the individual contest for most box tops, and Mrs. Jacobs’ 2nd grade class is leading the class contest. Great job!

Candle sales should be wrapping up, so don’t forget to bring order forms back on Monday. The money from these sales will go towards new playground equipment for the North playground.

Coming up next week:

Candle fundraiser packets are due on Monday, Oct. 23!

Eagle Acts of Kindness 

In recognition of Bully Prevention Month, students and staff at EGS will be participating in Eagle Acts of Kindness project - an effort to spread kindness at our school.   When students are caught doing an act of kindness, they will receive a ticket which they will then enter in their choice of prizes. This kindness project will begin October 23 and end on November 20 when prizewinners will be drawn.  Please encourage your child to spread kindness at EGS! 

 

Bully Prevention 

We define bullying as intentional harm or aggressive behavior, repetitive over time, and am imbalance of power. 


Library News

If you were unable to attend the Fair in person, we invite you to visit our online Book Fair at scholastic.com/fair. Our Online Fair is available from October 14 to October 27.

 

Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here’s what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love

for reading:

 

·      Set the example. Let children see you read.

·      Have a collection of books in your home. Update this collection routinely to keep up

       with changing tastes and reading skills.

·      Support our school’s Book Fair. Allow your children to choose their own books

        to read.

 

Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read right into our school. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits.

Remember, all purchases benefit our school.

4th Grade: (Written by Austin Shinliver) My class has been working really hard on all of the tests we have taken the past week.  Next, we have been doing pretty good on our science experiments. Then, Ms. Feist gives us enough time to get caught up on math. Finally, this Friday we are going to watch a movie.


Grade Cards:  For grades 2-6, grade cards will be sent home on November 2. 


Box Tops: IT’S CONTEST TIME!!! 10 box tops = $1 for our school, so they can really add up quickly!

So far, our student leader is Ryan C. in Mrs. Jacobs’ 2nd grade.  Mrs. Jacobs’ room is also leading the class contest at this time.

The STUDENT who brings in the most box tops will get to be Assistant Principal with Ms. Josserand for the day! That student will get to lead the morning announcements, dismiss classes from the gym, and do all his/her work in the Principals office at a very special VIP desk. The CLASSROOM that brings in the most box tops will get a 30 minute extra recess, with a game of their choice. (Examples: Capture the flag, cannon ball, etc.)  PLUS – a MYSTERY class prize! Could it be a mystery reader? Or a special activity? Ms. Josserand is keeping it TOP SECRET! 

 If you need extra forms, we are happy to get them home with your student, just let us know.

PAC News:

PAC has set a goal to provide some much needed playground equipment and supplies. Our North playground has minimal equipment for students to use. We would love for our students to have more variety for their physical activity, and inspire more creativity in organized play.   

In an effort to raise the necessary funds to pay for the new equipment, PAC is kicking off the ever-popular Gold Canyon Candle fundraiser! Each candle is $21.60, (including tax) and our PAC keeps $8 of that! That’s AMAZING! Candles will arrive approximately 3-4 weeks after orders are due on October 23.  The goal is to have them out before Thanksgiving! J

One VERY important reminder! ALL CHECKS ABSOLUTELY MUST BE MADE OUT TO PAC!!!! Any checks made to EGS will be returned, as they cannot be accepted. (PAC is separate from EGS for all fiscal purposes.)
