FROM THE EAGLE’S NEST
Eagle View is hosting its second annual Math Madness night on Thursday, April 24th from 6:00-7:30. Come play math games, critical thinking challenges, and experience the fun of math! Also come to learn about cool new math apps and games to download on your iPad. Games and activities will span all grade levels so bring the whole family. See you there!
Parents, this is a gentle reminder to drive slowly through the Kiss and Ride area to ensure the safety of students and staff. In addition, do not leave your car unattended while you are parked in the Kiss and Ride lane. This lane is only for parents waiting inside their cars to pick up their children. If you need to go into the school, please park in an assigned parking space or on the street.
To ensure the safety of students, parents are not permitted to drop-off or pick-up students in the bus loop. This area is designated for buses only.
PARENT VOLUNTEER BREAKFAST THURSDAY, APRIL 10, at 8:30
One reason that Eagle View is such a wonderful school community is that volunteers come in and support our students. We would like to celebrate the efforts of our volunteers by having a breakfast in your honor. The breakfast will be on Thursday, April 10, at 8:30 in the library. Why? Because we appreciate you! We hope to see you there!
