New Student Orientation – Wed., Aug. 26

This year we will once again have a special morning of orientation just for new students and their parents. All kindergarten (Nest), first grade (Primary), and new students in all other units should plan to attend school on Wednesday, August 26, from 8:25 to 11:20 AM to meet teachers and gain some EAGLE insights as we launch into the 2015-16 school year. Although attendance by parents is not required, it is highly encouraged, as the following informational sessions will be offered to assist new parents with the transition to EAGLE:

8:30 – 8:45  Introductions

8:45 – 9:30  Expectations, Communication, Q&A with Director Carole Mason

9:30 – 10:15  “What’s Best for the Nest?” with Jane Kufel and Carol van Deelen OR “Taking the Mystery Out of Math” (Math teachers share tips for helping your child transition to EAGLE math.)

10:30 – 11:00  EAGLE Technology: Website, E-Mail, and ThinkWave

11:00 – 11:20  EAGLE Parent Organization (EPO)

11:20 -12:00  Pizza Lunch – Students and parents will have the opportunity to meet the EAGLE staff and enjoy lunch before heading home or back to work. (No need to bring anything–food and beverages will be provided.)

We look forward to seeing all of our new students (including Nesters and Primaries) on this important orientation morning. An invitation with more information was emailed to families in early August. Please let us know if your child is unable to attend.
