Eaton’s elementary students read the story “The Crayon Box that Talked” by Shane Derolf.
They discussed being unique, tolerant, and working as a team.
Each student made their own crayon to create a bulletin board.

We’d like to recognize one of our 8th grade students, Aliza Gold. Aliza has been chosen to be the Youth Honoree for the 2016 Walk to Cure Arthritis, Atlanta, GA. After having pain for many years, Aliza was diagnosed with Arthritis at the age of 12, and later specifically diagnosed with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA). After some time she wasn’t able to walk and ended up in a wheelchair. As you can imagine, this journey has been difficult and continues to be. However, through medical help and love and support from family and friends, Aliza is doing much better and several of us joined her team, “Go Team Aliza”, last year to walk the 1-mile option of the 2015 Walk to Cure Arthritis.

Mrs. Giacchino’s eleventh grade students are reading The Scarlet Letter and were required to complete a project. They had to research an individual in society (past to present) who sinned and is/was involved in a scandal like Hester. They had to find a picture of the person and write three paragraphs that consisted of a brief biography of the individual, the sin or scandal in which he/she was involved, and how the situation relates to Hester Prynne’s. Students assigned their person a scarlet letter of their own that related to the sin they committed and decorated it. They enjoyed this project as they were able to do some research and be creative in assigning their person a scarlet letter for the sin they committed.
