WINTER WORKOUT CLUB:
Come join Winter Workout Club during 3rd Quarter to stay in shape during the cold Colorado winter months. This club will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays every week starting January 15, 3:40 to 4:30 p.m. Students will learn a variety of cardio exercises and body-strength exercises and participate in a workout session to help them meet their personal fitness goals. Whether you are trying to get into better shape or are adding this club to your current exercise routine, this is a great way to improve your overall physical abilities. This is also a great opportunity for students to get into better shape for the upcoming spring sports season.
There is no charge for this club and it is open to all Eagleview students. However, for safety and space availability, there is a maximum number of students that can join the club. All forms and permission slips need to be turned into Mr. Hampton in room 341 by January 11. Students can get forms and additional information from Mr. Hampton or in the Student Office. If you have any questions please
contact Mr. Hampton at email@example.com.
In partnership with our Parent Partners organization we will be hosting three showings of the film Screenagers in January 2019. Screenagers is a documentary film that many of our parents and guardians will be able to relate to. It examines how teens interact with each other using electronic devices. Additionally, the film addresses whether parents can – or should – try to limit or control their children's communication.
There will be a showings as follows:
- 8th Grade Parents on Monday, January 28 at 5:30 in the Cafe
- 7th Grade Parents on Tuesday, January 29 at 5:30 in the Cafe
- 6th Grade Parents on Wednesday, January 30, at 5:30 p.m. in the Cafe
Each showing will be followed immediately by a panel discussion in which professionals and parents will share various perspectives on themes associated with the use of technology. Parents will leave the showing with resources to facilitate meaningful discussions with their children.
Students will watch the film with their grade level on the day after the parents' showings.
There will be a showings as follows during the school day:
- 8th grade on January 29
- 7th grade on January 30
- 6th grade on January 31
We are very excited that our Parent Partners made this opportunity available to our community and look forward to welcoming you all to the film and discussions in late January.
Schedules will be changing for 2nd semester at Eagleview MS. The Learning Extensions time, which every student has scheduled Tuesday through Friday on A and B days, is an individualized class time during which your students will receive instruction based on their specific needs. Through the multi-tiered system (or MTSS) process, a team of educators discusses the placement of every Eagleview student during this time. That team consists of the MTSS coordinator, Reading and Math Intervention Teachers, Resource Teachers, teacher-coaches, our TAG Teacher, Counselors, Administrators and of course your student's Team Teachers. They collaborate to identify what level of support each student needs and in which areas. While some students receive reading or math support, others may explore unique extension possibilities in math, science or social studies. In order to ensure that your child is receiving the appropriate targeted support during this period, they may be placed in a Lab class across academic teams. Doing this allows us to be more specific and intentional with instruction during the Learning Extensions (LAB) period.
Please know that these placements can be somewhat fluid in nature, if a student shows a need for more or less support in a given area, the team may look at shifting that student into an appropriate section to address that need. If such a change were to take place, we would be sure to reach out to parents and guardians to let you know ahead of time. Students that are in programs such as Teen Leadership and 7th and 8th grade AVID will remain in those programs during Learning Extensions (LAB). If those students show a need for a reading or math intervention, it would come during an Exploratory period. If you have any questions about this process, please do not hesitate to contact your grade level administrator.
