Eastshore Elementary School
December 4, 2013
We hope you all enjoyed a happy Thanksgiving. We have a short span of time until our next break and the next two and a half weeks will be incredibly busy and filled with holiday fun!
TALENT SHOW: Our annual talent show will be held in January this year, providing students some extra time to practice over the break. The first screening for talent show acts will be held in the MPR On Friday, December 6th – that’s this Friday!! Please see the attached flyer for more information.
COMMUNITY SERVICE LEARNING: We are so proud of our students for embracing the idea of community service. Our 5th and 6th grade leadership team organized a food drive for Families Forward for Thanksgiving. We also had a “Pajamas for the Philippines Day” and raised over $1,000 to donate to the Red Cross. Thank you families for helping us help others!
REPORT CARDS: First trimester ends on Friday, December 13th. Report cards will be available after 2:00 p.m. on Friday, December 20th. Parents may access the report card through the Parent Portal. If you do not have access to a computer or the Parent Portal, please inform your child’s teacher so that we can make arrangements to send home a hard copy of the report card.
RIR ASSEMBLIES: Assemblies will be held on December 19th for first trimester. If your child is receiving an award, you will be notified by the teacher. Please plan to attend if your child is being recognized – this is an important moment for your child as they are individually acknowledged before their peers and an adult audience for demonstrating respect, integrity and responsibility.
Students are also recognized for demonstrating RIR by receiving blue cards from adults on campus. These cards are placed into a treasure box and random drawings are held periodically throughout the year. Twenty primary students and twenty upper grade students are randomly selected each time and invited to a special lunch activity. Our first activity this year was held on Thursday, November 21st. We painted rocks! The next drawing will be held prior to winter break.
Students are also recognized for demonstrating RIR in their individual classrooms.
We would like to wish all of our families happy holidays and a healthy and happy new year! Please remember that Friday, December 20th is a minimum day. School will resume on Monday, January 6th, 2014.
