EMS WISHES YOU A HAPPY THANKSGIVING:

No school for students November 19 to November 23.

 

 

A WORD FROM MR. LESTER:

Eagleview Community,

I wanted to start by thanking all of the parents, grandparents, and guardians who joined us at EMS today for the Holiday Lunch.  We had a wonderful turnout and the Jazz Band did a wonderful job of providing entertainment throughout.  Thank you for taking the time to join your students and helping to build our Eagleview community.

 

This past week has been a wonderful one at EMS.  In the past week we have seen:

  • Choir concerts (including K-12 students from our feeder schools, EMS and Air Academy)
  • Softball and Basketball Tournaments (3rd and 1st place finishes respectively and great sportsmanship throughout)
  • Lego Robotics competitions
  • Harvest of Love donations coming in to support those in need
  • Two incredible evenings with our Fall Production
  • Multiple clubs and field trips

     

    In addition, our art teacher Ms. Vanessa Scott was recognized by the Colorado Art Education Association as their 2018 Middle School Art Educator of the Year at their Annual Conference in Breckenridge last weekend.  Vanessa is an Eagleview Alum and is in her 11th year of teaching at Eagleview.  During her time here she has not only built hundreds of meaningful relationships with students, but has transformed the feeling of the school for students, staff, parents and visitors alike. 

     

    I hope that your Thanksgiving Break is restful and safe.

    BEING GOOD NEIGHBORS:

    Our neighbors at the Estates at Rockrimmon ask that Eagleview parents not use their streets and driveways to drop off or pick up students.  Please use our Kiss-N-Go procedures for both drop off and pick-up.  Thank you!

     

     

    Eagleview's 2018 Branching Out With Hope Holiday Drive

    Sponsored and Coordinated by student National Junior Honor Society

    We have the fortunate opportunity to help support Eagleview students with our second annual Branching Out with Hope holiday drive.  The Branching Out with Hope drive is similar to a traditional giving tree fundraiser.  During the weeks leading up to winter break, students and families in our school community will have the opportunity to select a gift tag from a tree/eagle's nest display in our front foyer.  Each tag will have a tailored gift idea for a student.  To respect confidentiality and privacy, the names of our students receiving gifts will not be on these gift tags, only a corresponding number on the tag will identify which gift is for each child. 

     

    If you would like your student to receive a gift through this year's Branching Out With Hope Holiday Drive, please reach out to your student's grade level counselor promptly, no later than Monday November 26.  We have the ability to support 20 students at each grade level. 

     

    If you would like to help support this holiday drive, please visit our EMS Lobby beginning Thursday November 29.  At this time gift tags will be available along with instructions on how to gift. If you have any questions please reach out to your student's grade level counselor. Wishing you all a happy and healthy holiday season!

    SPORTS UPDATE:

    Girls Basketball sign-ups began November 12 through November 26 in the Student Office. The payment, Registration & Consent Form, Release Form, and Assumption of Risk Form, and a current physical (within last 12 months) must be on file with the Student Office before the student is allowed to practice.  There is a $40 fee that should be paid for through Pay ForIt.net, or in the Student Office, which includes the player receiving a shirt.

7th Intramural/IS Tryouts

3:40 pmLARGE GYM

 

 

 The girls will be assigned to a specific Intramural Team and will be coached by a team of coaches.  This concept allows us to utilize the talents and resources of our coaches and will maintain the intramural nature of our program.  All games will be played at Eagleview and practices will be immediately after school.  All girls chosen for IS also play IM.  IS tryouts take place during IM practices the first week.  After the season begins, teams will only practice on the day of a game (e.g. Practice from 3:45-4:30 p.m.; games at 4:30 p.m. - 5:15 p.m.).  The season will conclude January 26, 2019.  If you have questions about any EMS Athletics, please contact Eileen Wilfong, 234-3418.

You are cordially invited to Eagleview's School Spelling Bee on December 3 at 5:45 p.m., in the Wing Space.  Every student at Eagleview has participated in a classroom bee, and our top spellers from each grade will compete to represent Eagleview at the upcoming School District 20 Spelling Bee.  Parents of qualifying students will be emailed about their students' involvement by their Language Arts Teacher.  Spellers should be in the Eagleview Wing Space no later than 5:30 p.m. on December 3 to start the bee promptly at 5:45 p.m.  Please come and celebrate our talented spellers!

 

 

SHOWCASE AUDITIONS

Auditions for our The EMS Showcase (our school's Talent Show) are right around the corner.  Auditions will be held in the Wing Space on Tuesday, December 4 and Wednesday, December 5 from 3:30-5:00 p.m.  Students from any grade level and team are welcome to audition. Students can sign up for their audition slot on the back of the Choir Room door right after Thanksgiving Break.  Acts should be no longer than 2 minutes in length and should be performance ready the day of the audition.  The selected acts will have a dress rehearsal on Tuesday, January 15 during the school day, and will perform in the Showcase that evening at 5:30 p.m.  Tickets for audience members will be $2.00.

Lost and Found is piling up with sweatshirts, jackets, and other clothing; lunch boxes, water bottles; notebooks, folders, books, bags, and other miscellaneous items.  Remember, clothing items left at the end of the quarter are donated to a charity.  Please check for your missing items near the back doors in the Counseling Office Atrium.
