FROM THE EAGLE’S NEST
END-OF-YEAR MESSAGE FROM DR. GRANADA
Good afternoon, Eagle View Families. It has been an exceptional year at Eagle View, where our students have truly “soared.” It continues to be a privilege to work with you and your children on behalf of their success. A heartfelt thanks to our PTA led by Marcia Hortek-Sheehan, who was instrumental in supporting many important events and endeavors at Eagle View. As always, it is a privilege to work with the best teaching staff in FCPS. Eagle View teachers teach their hearts out, and it has been an honor to observe such engaged and vibrant classroom communities throughout the school year. Please accept our sincere wishes for a safe and enjoyable summer. Please remind your students to READ, READ, READ! (See summer reading information below—The Book Burglar is on the loose again!)
BEST WISHES TO OUR SIXTH GRADE STUDENTS AND THEIR FAMILIES
We wish our sixth grade students the very best as they move on to middle school. It has been a pleasure to know such a wonderful group of students and their families. We are confident that our students will continue to SOAR wherever they go!
LAST DAYS OF SCHOOL
Any student absences on June 23, 24, and 25 are excused due to the extended school calendar. Monday, June 23 will follow a regular Monday schedule with early dismissal. Tuesday, June 24 will follow a regular Tuesday full day schedule. Wednesday, June 25 dismissal will be at 11:30. We look forward to seeing the students at Open House on Thursday, August 28!
KISS AND RIDE TAGS
Please keep your Car “Kiss and Ride” Hanging Tag for the 2014-2015 School Year. The number will stay the same for the 2014-2015 School Year!
Our students have really done a great job responding to the Book Burglar’s requests for posts on his blackboard site! In your child’s report card envelope next week, there will be a letter, reading log, and list that matches your child’s reading level, per his or her teacher’s recommendation. Please be sure to encourage your child to participate this summer by keeping the Book Burglar “posted,” as well as turning in a completed log to their new teacher by Friday, September 12th.
NEW FAMILIES: SUMMER READING
Please be sure to encourage your child to participate in our summer reading program. See the attached letter and book log for more information. We are looking forward to welcoming you to the EV family!
