FROM THE EAGLE’S NEST
FROM THE EAGLE’S NEST
It was wonderful to see so many EV families at the basketball game on Friday. Thanks to the staff and PTA who worked together to make it a fun school community event!
We hope that all EV families have a wonderful spring break from Monday, March 30 through Friday, April 3. Please note that students also do not have school on Monday, April 6, as this is a workday for FCPS staff. We look forward to seeing the students again when school reconvenes on Tuesday, April 7.
As the 2014-2015 school year draws to a close, Eagle View staff begin to consider class placements for next year. At Eagle View, pupil placement is really a group effort. Our specialists and classroom teachers work together to form classes that are balanced in a variety of areas. Our goal is to place each child in a class where his or her individual instructional, social, and emotional needs are met.
If you have any information about your child and/or the type of learning environment you feel would be best suited for your child, please share it with Dr. Granada in an e-mail before Friday, May 22. It is important that you share specific characteristics about your children. Requests for particular teachers are not encouraged or honored. Classroom assignments are finalized and posted at our annual Open House the Thursday prior to the opening of school.
