It has been a very busy month at Eaton. We have just launched our “Blog” online at http://www.eatonacademy.org . There is a link on our homepage in the upper right-hand corner. Our blog will have updates, news, and forms. It is one more line of communication.
It was great seeing everyone at conferences! We look forward to this formal conference twice a year. Remember, you don’t need to wait for these scheduled conferences. We are always happy to discuss your children’s needs. If you need to speak with a teacher, please try to refrain from drop-in “conferences” in the morning. Send the teacher an email or put a note in the Friday Folder so that we can give you the time you need. Please continue reading the Friday Folders for weekly academic updates. I will also continue to send emails to alert you of any news/events.
ITBS testing formally finished on Wednesday. Thanks again for ensuring students were on time and prepared. ITBS and Brigance test results along with report cards will be mailed home at the end May.
This month our older students got a chance to experience Georgia State’s Bio-bus. Several Georgia State grad students came to Eaton and led experiences in forensics. As a complementary activity to the Bio Bus, students also participated in a DNA extraction lab with Ms. Baldrich. Students extracted DNA from cells inside their cheeks, mixed it with a solution, and stored it in a glass vial to take home.
We have several upcoming field trips/events in April:
- The 8th grade Pod students, along with the high school, will be visiting the Tellus Science Museum on April 2.
- The 6th and 7th grade Pod students, along with the Resource Room and several Mentor Room students, will be experiencing the IMAX on April 2.
- The 3rd and 4th grade Pod students will be immersed in an Alice in Wonderland Read-In on April 2.
- Ms Ammendola’s class will be visiting the Chattahoochee Nature Center on April 15.
Here’s hoping you all have a wonderful Spring Break, Passover, and Easter!
