FROM THE EAGLE’S NEST
Please join us TONIGHT at our next PTA Meeting at 5pm!
DONUTS WITH DAD AND WATCHDOG KICKOFF
Don’t miss our “Doughnuts with Dads” this Friday, December 13 in the cafeteria. Students bring your Dad and treat him to a doughnut and coffee. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to spend some fun time together! While you are there, hear about EVE's new volunteer program called Watch DOGS (Dads Of Great Students) and register to volunteer for a morning with your student at school.
WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) is the father involvement initiative of the National Center for Fathering that organizes fathers and father figures in order to provide positive male role models for students and to enhance school security. We are using VolunteerSpot, an online scheduling tool, to help us schedule volunteers for the WATCH D.O.G.S. Program at Eagle View Elementary. To sign up as a WATCH D.O.G.S. volunteer for one day from 8:50am through lunch/recess, please click here. For additional information about this program, please visit the website or email Pano Kallis with any questions. Thank you for helping to make the WATCH D.O.G.S. program a success at our school!
HELP NEEDED FOR DONUTS WITH DADS
We're still looking for a few volunteers to help us with the event on Friday. Please contact Jaimee Nygaard if you can help at any time from 7:15 until 9:30.
BARNES AND NOBLE BOOKFAIR
EV families are invited to do some holiday shopping at the Barnes and Noble in Fair Lakes this Sunday, from 1:00-5:00. Students and families can enjoy staff guest readers as well as face painting throughout the afternoon. At 1:30, a saxophone player will lead a sing-along of a few winter songs. If you present the voucher, the school will get a percentage of the net sale. Additionally, if you purchase online at BN.COM/bookfairs, using the Eagle View ID of 11187713, your purchases will count toward the contribution to the school. We’ll see you on Sunday!

FULL-TIME ADVANCED ACADEMICS SCREENING
Parent/guardians of students grades 2-6 currently enrolled in FCPS may initiate full-time AAP (level IV) center screening by submitting the AAP (Level IV) Referral Form to the Advanced Academic Resource Teacher, Mrs. Linehan. Referrals and optional information are due to the school by February 3, 2014. This is the only action that is required to initiate the screening process. The referral form is located in the Parent Information Packet for AAP Screening, Testing and Identification and on the Advanced Academic Programs website. If you have questions about AAP or the screening process, please contact Mrs. Linehan or Carol Ryan at 703-322-3216.
A meeting to overview the screening process will be held at the Eagle View Elementary library directly following the 5:00 PTA meeting on Wednesday, January 8, 2014 from 6:00-7:00 pm. Snow date: January 15th from 6:00-7:00.
