Eastover Elementary Earns 2015 National Blue Ribbon School Recognition!
Former United States Secretary of Education Arne Duncan recognized Eastover Elementary School as a 2015 U.S. Department of Education Exemplary High Performing National Blue Ribbon School.
The National Blue Ribbon Schools Award is a highly recognized symbol of commendable teaching and learning. Schools are honored at a ceremony in Washington D.C. with a plaque affirming the hard work of students, educators, families and communities, and presented with a special flag to grace the school building. “This is an incredible honor for our school,” said Principal Carey Crocker. “The teachers, students, and families have worked hard to earn this distinction.” To read more click here.
Visible Thinking and Sustainability
At Eastover, we aim to educate the whole child. In addition to a comprehensive curriculum based on the Common Core State Standards, students receive instruction in music, art, Spanish, physical education, and technology. Students also engage in learning opportunities that develop their creativity, compassion, and leadership skills. Character traits are continually reinforced through our Positive Behavior Support program. Our Visible Thinking initiative provides a culture of thinking that fosters creativity, problem solving, critical thinking, and collaboration. Students are given opportunities throughout the year to make a positive impact at home, in the community, and beyond, through our school sustainability initiative.
The calendar for the upcoming school year has been posted. A quick reference, calendar at a glance, is available as well.
Dear Eastover Families,
The students at Eastover will need some help with summer maintenance in the garden. A sign-up has been created so your family can schedule time to come to Eastover and help weed the garden. If you sign up for a week, please try to come to school at least twice. You may come any day and any time of the week you sign up for (ignore the 8:00 am-4:00 pm).
Thank You and have a great summer!
