We are kicking off the EJES Fun Run this week with a Coin Collection and Pep Rally!! We are collecting change in our homeroom each day this week. If you can send some “pocket change” to add to our bucket, we would appreciate it!! The pep rally will be Friday at 1:30 in the gym! Friday is also a Spirit Day, so wear your blue and white and show your Eagle Pride!!
Friday will be a busy and fun day for us! First, it will be a Spirit Day at EJES, so remember to wear your East t-shirt or school colors! Students can also show their school spirit by buying pom-poms, bead necklaces, or tattoos at the school store in the morning. All items are either 50 cents or $1. The most spirited student in each grade will win a ticket to the EJCHS that night! Second, it is Grandparents Breakfast morning! Breakfast will be served from 7:00-7:45 in the lunchroom. Please return your slip with a head count, if you have not done so already. Last, we will be having our first Science test on Friday. Please use the study guide (in the agenda) to help you child review for the test.
We have been having a lot of fun learning about the Sun, the Moon, the Earth, stars, and shadows! We have observed how shadows move and change during the day. We have observed (and eaten) the phases of the moon! We have also studied how the Earth and Moon move in the solar system. I love the curiosity and excitement they have about science!!!
Welcome back to school! I am so excited to be teaching your children this year! We have already gotten off to a great start and I am looking forward to great things this year! I have really enjoyed getting to know each and everyone of them over the past week! We have been very busy learning new routines and expectations, playing new math games, and getting to know one another. We even built a boat in our STEM activity on the first day of school! (Check back to see which class built the strongest one!)
