2017-2018 Back to School Information

August 04, 2017

Important Information for the 2017-2018 School Year

School-Wide Theme

Our school-wide theme for the 2017-2018 school year is “Throw kindness around like confetti.”  I recently read an article that said, “We don’t make children happy when we simply enable them to be receivers of kindness.  We escalate their feelings of happiness, improve their well-being, reduce bullying, enrich their friendships, and build peace by teaching them to be givers of kindness.”  Help us to create a culture of kindness as we work together as a community to spread kindness like confetti.

First Day of School

August 17, 2017 will be our first day for elementary students.  Students will enter the building at 8:10 with the tardy bell ringing at 8:15. Please help your student to be on time each day to show them the importance of routines.  There will be supervisors on the playground starting at 7:45, please do not drop off students prior to 7:45. 

Class Lists

Class lists will be posted at school at 5:00 p.m. on Monday, August 7.  Please join us on this day for the annual Parents and Teachers of Eagle’s (PTE’s) Back to School Bash which is held from 5:00-8:00.  This event is a chance for parents and students to socialize with others, have a meal together, and enjoy some fun activities.  For those students who are unable to attend, the class lists will stay posted until school begins or you can call the office anytime after this date for the information.

Open House

Open House will be held on Wednesday, August 16 from 6:00-7:00.  This is a time for you and your child to visit his/her classroom, meet their teacher, fill out paperwork, and pick up important information in regards to your child’s school year.  The office staff will be available on this night to collect money for lunch and K-2 snack.  Lunch Payment Information Form


Meal prices for this year are:

 Student Breakfast--$1.75        Adult Breakfast--$2.45

 Student Lunch--$2.77             Adult Lunch--$3.65

A free/reduced application form is included with this information.  If you believe you qualify for this service or have in the past, you will need to submit the form.  If you qualified during the 2016-2017 school year a new form has to be completed again this year.  This does not carry over from last year that is why a new one is required.  2017-2018 Free/Reduced Lunch Application

New Staff

This year we welcome two new staff members.  Mrs. Tracy McCoy will be joining us as our new speech/language pathologist and Mrs. Jenna Medinger will join us as a paraprofessional.

Elementary Student Handbook

The 2017-2018 Elementary Student Handbook will be posted on our website prior to school starting. Paper copies of the handbook will not be distributed, but are available in the office upon request. It is important for all parents and students to review the handbook together.  All families will need to complete and return the Student Handbook Form indicating you have read the handbook.  Parents of new students will need to complete the Media Release Form.  These forms will be on your child’s desk on Open House Night.  Student Handbook (will be updated prior to the start of school)

Communication/School Visitors

Communication has always been a priority for our school.  We post information on the district website http://www.district145.org/   and the Eagle Elementary Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/EagleVikings.  Teachers also have classroom websites, Facebook pages, and send regular emails to parents.  We want you to be involved in your child’s education and encourage parents to visit school.  Remember that all visitors must sign in at the office to receive a visitor’s badge prior to going to your child’s classroom.  Signing out is also required. 

District 145 Snack/Treat List

Due to student food allergies, we will be following new guidelines in regards to treats brought into the school for birthdays or other occasions.  Also, for safety and equity issues the school district will be providing a drink and snack for each child for our three yearly parties, Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day.  No additional food items will be accepted for these parties.         Approved District 145 Snack Treat List

Solar Eclipse

1st-5th grade students will have the option to participate in the solar eclipse, which will take place on Monday, August 21st.  Our youngest students will have a virtual experience on this day. Students will be engaged in many related learning activities beginning the first day of school and we will be practicing our protocol to safely observe this event with students prior to this date.  A release form and more information regarding this once-in-a-lifetime event will be shared with you at Open House and MUST be signed in order for your child to participate.
