Join us for an uplifting experience as we salute the many accomplishments of our students at the annual Honors and Awards Assembly, Tuesday, June 2, at 8:45 AM, in the Auditorium. We will honor achievements in academic areas as well as in sports, the arts, and service. We will recognize our 2015 graduates and staff members who have reached milestones in their service at EAGLE. We will also reveal the fourth-quarter Wings Awards. We invite parents to share this special time with us.
On Wednesday, June 3, staff members, with the help of parent chaperones, will supervise students as they travel to various locations and participate in special activities throughout the day:
Middle School 7/8s – Great America
Jr. 3/4s – MS 6/7s – Kalahari Water Park
UPs & Intermediates – Dane County Humane Society, Brigham Park, Cave of the Mounds
Nest & Primary – UW Campus (Primate Center, Babock Hall, Dairy Cattle Center), Madison Children’s Museum
A special “Day Away email” will be sent to all families detailing these activities and requesting help from parent volunteers. Please mark your calendars and check your email for Day Away news.
During July 2015, we are excited to offer a variety of one-week enrichment courses encompassing several curricular areas including science, math, technology, world language, and the arts. These classes, intended to be both thought-provoking and fun, will allow students to explore, problem solve, create, imagine, work cooperatively, and in many instances, improve skills in a particular area.

The registration deadline for priority consideration is March 31, 2015.
Parent-teacher conferences will take place on Thursday, Mar. 12, from 12:30 to 8:00 PM. This past Tuesday, you should have received an email containing the link to the Jooners sign-up sheet for your child’s unit. If you haven’t already done so, please use this online system to select your conference start time. If you have two children at EAGLE, be sure to open both sign-up sheets and review the available times before making your first selection. This will give you a better chance of getting your start times close together.
Questions? Contact Ann (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the main office.
On Tuesday, Feb. 17, from 8:30 to 11:00 AM, we are hosting a “Parent Visit Day” for parents who would like to learn more about EAGLE School. Visitors will have an opportunity to tour our building, meet with Carole and Susan F., and observe in classrooms.

On Thursday, Dec. 11, from 8:30 to 11:00 AM, we are hosting an “early” visiting day for prospective families who have children entering kindergarten in the fall of 2015. During this visit, parents will have an opportunity to tour the school, meet with our director and guidance counselor, and observe in classrooms.
To attend a visiting day, interested parents should email firstname.lastname@example.org to register. Beginning Jan. 8, ten more visiting days will be offered for prospective families with children entering grades 1-8 in the fall. These dates can be found under the Admissions tab.
If you have a child who you would like to enroll at EAGLE for the first time next fall, please note that the priority application deadline for siblings is February 2, 2015. In order to submit a complete application packet by the deadline, we encourage you to schedule an appointment to have your child tested (IQ) in December or January by an evaluator of your choice. If you need suggestions, please contact the school office for a list of examiners in the Madison area who have agreed to test EAGLE applicants.
We will hold parent-teacher conferences on Thursday, Nov. 6, from 12:30 to 8:00 pm. Students will attend morning classes only, with early dismissal at 11:20 AM.
(Please note that the bus will be here at 11:20 to provide its usual service to the “afternoon” riders.)
Child care will be provided in the Commons during conferences for EAGLE students only at a cost of $5.00 per hour, per child. If a child accompanies you on conference day, s/he must go to the Commons. To respect the confidential nature of conferences, students will not be allowed to wait for parents in the hallways or on the couches.
A chart listing conference start time for all families will be forwarded with the Aerie-Gram on Oct. 31.
We will celebrate Halloween at EAGLE on Friday, Oct. 31. The festivities will begin with our annual all-school costume parade at 8:30 am. (Parents are welcome to come and take pictures.) The parade will conclude in the gym, where we will hold a short assembly to acknowledge our Read-A-Thon winners. Later that afternoon, students are sure to have a hauntingly good time at the various parties being planned by unit parents, EPO volunteers, and Student Council. We hope everyone is looking forward to a fun-filled day of “tricks” and “treats.”
