    Back Gate Passes

    If you would like your child to exit through the back gate on California Street you will need to come to the office and fill out a Back Gate Pass. This will allow your child to exit through the back gates at 2:30 p.m. Unfortunately we are not able to offer this service to the families of our Kinder and T/K students as these children need to be signed out. Also, due to supervision, those students in the Afterschool Program will not be eligible for the back gate passes as they must all exit out the front of the school. 

    Happenings

    Welcome back to the 2019-2020 School year. The Great and Mighty Eagles are excited to start down the Roadmap to Success. We are so excited about the data from last year and the growth me made as a soon. It was an awesome year and we look forward to continued and escalated growth this year. The first day of school is August 14 and the class lists will be posted in front of the school by 5:00 on Monday, August 12th. 

    On the first day of school students in grades 1st and 2nd will enter through the Zone 1 and Zone 2 gates. 3rd, 4th and 5th graders will enter through Zone 3 gates near the cafeteria. Only morning Kinders will enter through the front doors. 

    We have a new registration system so your patience is truly appreciated. For this reason only the Kinder parents will be coming into the front office for the first day. We will ask all students to enter through their Zone for dismissal. 

    We are ready to see where our adventure with students will take us this year. Teachers are ready, excited and committed to be here ALL IN, EVERYDAY!

    Welcome Kinder parents as well.!!!

    I am so excited to share our recent MAP Data (Measures of Academic Progress). In Reading, we exceeded our projected growth and are narrowing the achievement gap in grades 2-5.

    In Math we maintained our growth in all grades.It is super exciting to see their faces when they set a goal and reached it! We still have work to do in order to get students to grade level, but I am beyond excited about their growth on this assessment. Stay tuned for the classes with the highest percentile ranking. 

    When you are looking at the little diamond in graphs above, that tells you the projected growth for that grade level (meaning where the computer calculates what they should be able to reach). The blue area in the chart tells us the actual observed growth. So when the blue is above the diamond we are doing amazing things! Super proud of our teachers, students and families for making growth a priority. 

    I would personally like to thank all of my Great and Mighty Eagle Staff for their dedication, patience and hard work. We are soaring to new heights this year and I can't imagine doing this work without them. To those in the PVUSD district who have supported us, collaborated with us, trained us, and been there for us....we thank you! I am so grateful to work with a group of passionate people who care about kids and what is best for them. Thank you to all of our Great and Mighty Eagle families and students who are learning every day to soar to great places. May you each be filled with blessings, gratitude, and the love of family and friends during this thanksgiving holiday.

    Safety Policy

    PLEASE REMEMBER THERE IS NO SUPERVISION FOR STUDENTS UNTIL 7:30 A.M. Please make sure your child is not on campus until that time for their safety. 

    To ensure the safety of all students, staff and families it is necessary for every person who comes on campus to sign in at the front office. Office staff will ask what the purpose of your visit is and have you sign in to our visitor sign in sheet. You will then be given a visitor pass with the current date. We also ask that you please sign out when you leave campus as well. If you are bringing lunch for your child we will ask that you leave it at the front desk and we will call the student to come and get it before they go to lunch. 

    Afterschool students and parents have already established a safe and comfortable routine for bringing their children a snack before Afterschool Program begins. This is working very smoothly with this new system in place. We thank you for your understanding that our primary purpose is to maintain a safe and secure school environment for all students, staff, and visitors.
