This Tuesday is one of our many Eagles NEST days at Eastover. The day offers an opportunity for students to meet with their nest group to reflect on positive behavior throughout the school. Students work in their multi-age groups to focus on how to play and work with peers to demonstrate SOAR behavior.
We are excited to announce that we received our imagination playground equipment. Please look for pictures on social media today through facebook and twitter. We will use this new equipment during inside recess and outdoor recess to build creativity, imagination, team-building, and problem-solving skills with children. We can’t wait for them to try it out. If you would like to see how it works, here is the link to the main website and there is a video clip for you to watch.
Other news -
Flu season is in full swing. For the good of the many, please take your child seriously when you hear, "I'm not feeling great today," and have your child stay home. Too frequently we have students coming to school ill only to be sent home soon after arrival. This strain has been a tough one as we have students and staff missing up to a week of school. As a reminder, students should not return to school until 24 hours fever free. The same rule is in effect for students who have thrown up. We will continue to remind our students of the importance of hand washing as well as other preventative techniques.
If your child is interested in creating a science fair experiment or display, science fair submission forms are now due February 28th. Also, see the article below which outlines this year’s talent show. Print off and turn in your submission form asap.
