FROM THE PRINCIPAL:

Happy Friday Eagleview Community

The school year is off to a great start with students hitting their rhythm in class and fall sports underway.  Many of you know that my 5 year-old daughter Elsie was recently in the ICU at Children's Hospital for 9 days.  As parents of a child who is medically fragile, I cannot state clearly enough the relief and comfort that my wife and I feel when we walk into Colorado Children's Hospital in Denver.  We see a lot of familiar faces who have helped our daughter navigate rough patches over the past 5 years.  In short, they have a very knowledgeable staff with whom we have developed great trust.  It is my hope and goal that the talented, dedicated and committed staff at Eagleview represents a similar sense of comfort for you as parents as you send your students here on a daily basis.  I feel very lucky to be a part of this devoted staff that strives to do what is best for kids at every turn.  The positive attitude and engagement of your kids has brought the building to life- thank you for choosing to have them attend Eagleview.

 

Have a wonderful weekend,

Neighborhood Construction

We received word that our neighboring community of the Estates at Rockrimmon will have street construction beginning on Monday, September 10.  This construction may increase the volume of traffic in our kiss-n-go line at Eagleview for the next month while construction is completed.  Please allow extra time to drop off your student and be extra attentive to traffic congestion and pedestrian traffic in the Eagleview Middle School area.

 

JAVA With Jamie

Mr. Lester, the new Principal at Eagleview, would like to invite parents and guardians to the first "Java with Jamie" on September 17, 2018 from 9:30-10:00 in the Eagleview LMTC. Java with Jamie events will not have a set agenda but instead be an open forum for parents to meet with Mr. Lester to discuss all things Eagleview.  

 

 

AVID TUTORS NEEDED:

Eagleview Middle School is in need of some tutors for our AVID classes! This is a great way to get to work with middle school students in our building. AVID tutors are needed Tuesday-Friday from 11:50am-12:35pm or from 2:00pm-3:25pm and you could work both slots or just the one that works best for you. This is a great job for a college student or really anyone who is interested. AVID is a program designed to help students with organizational and study skills. The tutors would be leading students in study groups to help solve problems from their academic classes. We would train you! Contact Anna Keilman at EMS for more information. anna.keilman@asd20.org
