Dear Parents of High School Students:
As the season seems to have skipped from summer to winter, we head towards the holiday season at a full gallop. Class photos have been taken, class rings have started arriving, and Ms. Armstrong’s spirit wear has begun to spring up on the students’ backs. The various clubs and teams, including Tennis and Bowling, are having record turnouts, and the science classes are excitedly finishing their preparations for our trip to Key Largo!
Twenty-three of us will be heading out very early Monday morning for three days of exploring marine habitats first-hand. From mangroves to patch reefs to coral reefs to the ocean deep, we’ll be experiencing and observing marine life and ecosystems up close and personal. I’ll be attempting my first ‘remote blog’ to the Eaton website; and if all goes well (with the technology), I’ll include some action shots of the students!
Mrs. Kern and Mrs. O’Brien are planning a field experience for their classes in a couple of weeks, and more information will be coming home shortly. Parent drivers and chaperones are encouraged and needed!
It seems that, once we reach November, the end of the semester arrives quickly. We’ll get back from our Keys trip, have one full week of school, then Thanksgiving Break. After that, it’s two full weeks of school, and we’re into final exams! The 12-week grade reports will be uploaded to the server tonight (again, barring interference from the technology gnomes) and should be available for viewing first thing tomorrow morning. Please refer to earlier postings regarding student requirements for Help Session attendance.
Thank you for your participation in our lunch program. Please remember that your involvement is critical to keeping our local restaurants supportive and active in providing daily lunches.
Finally, the rain-out for the Tennis club this week has been rescheduled for November 17th.
Thanks for all of your support,
