What a Great First Week We've Enjoyed, Mustangs!

Dear EE Families,

    Happy New *School* Year, 2017-18!  Our first week back has been incredible, and we've felt so fortunate to welcome every child and family member back to our campus community for another incredible year of learning, friendship, reasonable risk taking, and exploration.  

    This week was filled with community-building, campus discoveries, and scientific conversations around the solar eclipse!  New friendships were forged, and old ones were rekindled.  Learning spaces echoed with curious voices yearning to know more and more about what the new year will hold.  Once again, EE transformed from empty classrooms to communities of learners with the ringing of a school bell.  All is right in the universe when a school building is filled with learners and educators, determined to make the world a better place each and every day.

     We are excited to enjoy our first, school-wide assembly this Friday at EE.  All students should head to the cafeteria upon arrival to sit with their classmates for the 7:35 am assembly start.  We'd love to show our school spirit each Friday by wearing our school colors - blue and red.  Go Mustangs!   

     Thank you for sharing your children with us each day at Eanes Elementary.  Thank you for sending your young leaders, artists, athletes, mathematicians, astrologers, writers, scientists, computer programmers, world explorers, dancers, and learners to school with us each day.  It is a responsibility we do not take lightly, and we are so grateful for your trust and support.  Here's to a new year and to all of our EE scholars! 

With gratitude,

Mrs. Ryan

Healthy Students

For the month of May, we will be focusing on Responsible Decision Making or Choices. “Learning to make their own choices helps children to be more independent, responsible, and confident.”  Provide children the opportunity to make choices.  Limit options for younger children so they can have practice and experience in becoming a good decision maker.

To read about other ways to support your child in making good decisions read, “Teaching Your Kid to Make Good Decisions”.
