Friday Fanfare     Nov. 17, 2017

Weekly Recap:  This week has flown right on by! Students have been working hard in the classroom on vowel sounds, reading, long division, and practicing spelling words. This time of year, we really notice students ‘rounding the corner’ on the skills they need for this new school year. We see lots of progress and ‘AHA!’ moments that really make us proud! Keep up the hard work and dedication, Eagles!


Coming up next week:

NO SCHOOL on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends!

Good Neighbor Award


The Good Neighbor Award is given to students who display ‘above and beyond’ good citizenship skills; students who strive to create a positive atmosphere, continually better themselves academically and socially, and have self-start initiative. 

 

 

Counselor's Corner


What is self-esteem? Students at EGS are learning about it right now! In classroom guidance sessions, students are exploring self-esteem, developing positive thoughts about themselves, identifying things they are good at, and practicing positive self-talk. We've learned that by being positive, we can build ourselves up, as well as others. This week with your child, make a list of things they are good at to help build positive self-esteem. Also, encourage your child to offer positive compliments to build up others. 

 

Eagle Acts of Kindness - Encourage your child to spread kindness at EGS!

In recognition of Bully Prevention Month, students and staff at EGS will be participating in an 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 into a drawing for their choice of prizes. This kindness project began on October 23 and will end on November 20 when prizewinners will be drawn. We have many awesome raffle prizes... Mr. Burger, Walnut Bowl, Up n Roll skating, Cosmosphere, and so many more.


Band

 

The 5th Grade class has been working very hard this semester and had their very first concert on Tuesday night. They showed off their skills, and even got their family members involved as they shared information about their instruments. Great job!

 

Box Tops

We’re juuuuuust shy of hitting our halfway goal, and we’re only a quarter of the way through school! Keep collecting those box tops and sending them in, and let’s see how quickly we can PASS our goal!

10 box tops = $1 for our school, so they can really add up quickly! If you need more box top forms, we are happy to get them home with your student, just let us know.

(Don’t forget to make sure box tops are not expired when you send them in – if they are, we can’t use them. 😔)
