Walk a Thon
THANK YOU for your donations!
EPS students and staff celebrated a successful Walk a Thon school fundraiser. Thank you to the Walk a Thon Committee for organizing the event as well as all of you for supporting the school. EPS students were able to raise a total of $6301.40. We will use this amount to purchase iPads for our school.
Tomorrow, students will be walking on the span of the Northwest walking trial to promote a healthy lifestyle and to celebrate the end of this year’s main school fundraiser. As snow is expected for tomorrow, please make sure children are dressed appropriately... (warm clothes, ski pants/splash pants, boots, hat, mittens/gloves, scarf). If the weather does not cooperate, this activity will take place on Tuesday, November 30th.
Students will receive their first term report card tomorrow. Please look at your child’s report card closely and discuss with your child their successes and areas of focus. Together set attainable goals that will help your child experience greater success next term. Please remember that the comment sheet needs to be signed and returned to the school in the original envelope.
Due to COVID restrictions, parent-teacher interviews once again will be done virtually or via telephone. Some teachers will start calling as early as Tuesday, November 30th until Friday, December 3rd. If you are not available during this designated period, you may schedule another time to discuss your child’s progress.
No school on Friday, December 3
Students are to stay home on Friday, December 3rd due to parent-teacher interviews and professional learning for the staff in the afternoon.
Kiss and Drop
This is a friendly reminder that starting Wednesday, December 1st parents are asked to drop off their child at their respective playgrounds and then leave school grounds. Please do not wait for the bell to ring before leaving. Adults wearing an orange vest are on supervision duty starting at 7:40 a.m. They will watch over your children as done during snack and noon recess. It is getting difficult distinguishing parents/guardians from adults that should not be on the school’s premises. Thank you for understanding and for your cooperation. Together we will keep the children safe.
Please continue to be vigilant when driving in the parking lot. I respectfully ask you only park in designated areas, respect the signage around and PLEASE reduce your speed. The safety of all is our priority.
Harveys Studios will be at school on Tuesday, December 7th for picture retakes.
Have a restful evening and make it a great week,
Mrs. Antigone Panagiotakis
