Did you know that Eastview's playground is more than 20 years old? The PTA is looking to donate funds raised from fundraisers to renovate and purchase new playground equipment that will be around for years to come.
If you have ideas about Eastview's new playground project please contact Lisa Sheehan.
It is time to start thinking about who is going to fill our open spots in the PTA Executive Board next year. We have several openings for the 2017-2018 school year!
The following positions will be available:
President Elect (will serve as President for 2018-2019 school year),
Vice President/Membership (in charge of membership enrollment - 2 positions),
PTA Council Delegate (attends PTA Council meetings once a month and reports back to our PTA),
Board of Education (can be shared with more than one person - attends Board of Education monthly meetings and reports back to our PTA).
A nominating committee has been formed to help gather all persons interested in any of these positions. If you are interested, may be interested or have a couple questions, please email one of them to express your interest.
The Nominating Committee members include: Susan Packer (firstname.lastname@example.org), Leah McDermott (email@example.com), Kristen Opfer (firstname.lastname@example.org), and Megan DeVere (email@example.com).
Eastview will be moving forward with the One District, One Book reading program in the month of the February. One District, One Book is a program designed to create a shared reading experience across the entire school community. Our school, along with all other elementary schools in the district will all be reading the same book at the same time. All schools will follow a common schedule with every family reading the book together at home. Each student will be provided a copy of the book. Every family in the elementary school community will be reading the same book at the same time. Throughout the month of February, the schools will implement a variety of activities each day to heighten and promote interest and discussion of the book, from daily trivia questions to a school wide kick off assembly. Students will experience the story with their family and enjoy participation in the follow-up activities at school the next day. Think of the great conversations that can be had among friends on the playground, church, basketball games, etc. about READING! Neighboring towns have done this program in their schools and the students have really enjoyed it!
Mr. Matthews has asked the PTA to be involved in decorating our display case and/or hallways/classroom doors to promote the book. The book is a big secret and the students will receive clues leading up to the Kickoff day! The Kick-off assembly will be Friday, February 17th and students will be asked to read at home with their families a chapter an evening starting 2/20 - 3/5.
