6th Grade Girls Basketball Enrichment:
The 6th Grade Girls Basketball Enrichment date is January 25, 3:40 – 5:00 p.m. in the Large Gym. Forms are available in the Student Office. There is no cost and no physical is needed. Forms must be returned by January 17 to Mrs. Wilfong in the Student Office. Come learn the basics of basketball.
Boys Basketball Sign-Up:
The boys' intramural basketball practice and tryouts begin on February 5 and 7 for 8th Grade and February 6 and 8 for 7th Grade. Both grades will continue practice and games on February 9, all games/tryouts/practices 3:40-5:15 p.m. A current physical (within the last 12 months) must be on file with the office before the student is allowed to practice. The EMS Basketball Registration and Consent Form, Assumption of Risk Agreement, and Release for Intramural Sport Activities (3 Forms) are required before student will be put on the Basketball Roster. Forms in Student Office or on EMS Web Site. There is a $40.00 fee, which includes the player receiving a shirt.
The boys will be assigned to a group of approximately eight and will be coached by a team of coaches. This cluster concept allows us to utilize the talents and resources of our coaches and will maintain the intramural nature of our program. The boys will be assigned to a specific team for the season but may be coached by any one of the coaches for a particular game. All games will be played at Eagleview.
Practices will be immediately after school. It is our intent to play most of our games at 4:00. The season will conclude prior to Spring Break. After the season begins, teams will only practice on the day of an IM game (eg. practice from 3:40-4:15pm; game at 4:15-5:15pm).
Incoming 9th Graders who are interested in playing FOOTBALL at Air Academy High School this coming fall need to attend our first meeting of the year. The meeting will take place at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, January 23 in the Library Conference Room at Air Academy High School. All parents and players are strongly encouraged to be there. Coach Grinde will be handing out the Football Calendar 2018. If you have questions, please call AAHS, 234-1400.
HAVE YOUR DEVICE FULLY CHARGED:
Students Need to Come to Class Prepared With BYOD Device Fully Charged
Parents, please remind your students to charge their BYOD devices each night so they are fully charged and ready for the next day of learning. Students should also bring their chargers in their laptop bag just in case they need to recharge during the day.
Teachers plan their lessons around our expectations that every student will have a device ready to use. Students who frequently come to class unprepared may face disciplinary action.
FROM THE HEALTH ROOM:
Please remember to pick up your student's expired medications/medications left from High Trails.

Parenting Kids in a "New" Culture (Different from the One We Grew Up In)
Shayne H. Stuart, MA, Masters Level Intern Julia Watson, BA, Masters Level Intern
Our planned parent talk is about parenting in a "new" culture. Today's culture is vastly different from the one we as parents and teachers grew up in. Culture also affects the ways in which we view the world. So it is important to "bridge the gap" of the differences between adults and their children. Culture will be addressed in order to build parents'/teachers' understanding of what it was, what it is today, and how we can bridge the gap so we can parent and teach from this new perspective. OUTLINE: Part 1 – What is Culture and how it Morphs; Part 2 – The Culture from Our Past; Part 3 – Dissonance with the Current Culture; Part 4 – Additional Considerations (Living in a Military City); Part 5 – How we can Bridge the Gap to Better Communications.
NEWS FROM OUR COUNSELING DEPT.:
My name is Deric Mann and I will be doing my internship this semester at Eagleview Middle School with Mr. Jerry Noel. I am finishing my final year as a counseling and human services graduate student at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. I am very excited to do my internship at Eagleview due to the excellent Counseling (and all) Staff and the fact that it is my family's homeschool. I look forward to meeting, working, and collaborating with you to best support the social/emotional, academic, and career needs of our students. Go Eagles!" Deric Mann, School Counselor Intern, EMS
