FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK


WINTER CONCERT:  Band students and vocal students in grades one through six are practicing for the Winter Program to be held on Monday, December 11th, 2017.   Band students will begin performing at approximately 6:30 P.M., followed by the vocal performance.  Rehearsals will be Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Monday, (December 6, 7, 8 and 11).   Students will be bussed to the East Campus for the rehearsals.  Please be sure to mark Monday, December 11th, 2017 on your calendar!

WEATHER:  We are in the winter months and we would like to remind parents to send children to school dressed appropriately.  Gloves and hats in cold weather are important for students before and after school, along with going out to recess.   A person loses almost half their body heat through their head.

GINGERBREAD HOUSE:  The first graders will be building their Gingerbread Houses on Tuesday, December 12th , 20177  They will begin at 2:00 PM and work in the cafeteria.  This is a fun event for the students and their parents who are invited to participate.

SEMESTER:  The second nine weeks and 1st semester ends on December 21st, 2017. Report cards will go out on Thursday, January 4th, 2018.  School resumes for the students on Thursday, January 4th, 2018.

HEALTH:  The school would like to thank the parents for their support in helping remind children to wash hands and demonstrating other health precautions this year.  The number of children sick and missing school has been about average or below average for the year.  The school has taken precautions during the school hours with sanitizers and hand wipes in the classrooms and in the lunchroom. 

GIFT GIVING:  In the spirit of gift giving, Eisenhower Elementary this year would like to encourage the students to donate to the food drive instead of giving gifts to their teachers.  We will put a box outside the office to collect the  food until the 21st of December.  The food will be used for the EES backpack program, and if there is food donated that could be used at God’s Pantry, it will be taken there when the Winter Break begins for the school.  Non-perishable items would be great.  As much as teachers appreciate gifts from their students, they believe this is a great way to help students understand they can help others at this time of year by participating in this wonderful event.  If there are any questions, please contact the office.
