Eyler Parent Newsletter

September 25, 2020

Dear Eyler Families,

As the year progresses I like to share tips to help your child reach their highest potential. The first are simple things to support your child’s vocabulary. A large vocabulary can turn your child into a better reader and writer. Try these couple everyday ways to help them learn new words.

  • Keep your ears open. When you and your child go places, point out words that people

use. Maybe a waiter describes an entrée or the dentist talks about molars. Encourage your

child to figure out what they mean by the way they’re used.

  • Go beyond nouns. Help your child add verbs and adjectives to his vocabulary. Sports

and games offer opportunities to use actions words. Let your child hear you comment on

the softball that soars or the runner who sprints. When he sends thank-you notes or

greeting cards, suggest descriptive words such as a polka-dot shirt or a fantastic birthday.

Finally, parents please be sure that you read to your children for 20 minutes and ask them every day what new things they have learned, what was their favorite part, and what made them laugh at school.

Dear Eyler Families,

The pick-up and drop-off has been moving forward and the wait has been getting shorter and that’s due to your patience and support. I am also suggesting an alternative route from Grafton to Newburg and then up to school on Briar Hill Road. This would help to keep more cars off the main road to safely enter the school parking lot. I included the map below for reference if you're able to do this. 



 

Next, I wanted to let you know that starting Monday we will begin our Fall Testing for NWEA and Running Records for our students. This is state mandated testing for all students in Kng - 8th grade. Here at Eyler we rely on the results to help guide, build our lessons, and grouping to ensure that our students reach their full potential. So please be sure that everyone gets a good night sleep and some positive praise in the morning before school. 

Also we have about 10 yearbooks from last school year and if you’re interested in purchasing one please contact Mrs. DeBoodt at 654-2121.

Finally, parents please be sure that you read to your children for 20 minutes and ask them every day what new things they have learned, what was their favorite part, and what made them laugh at school.

Drop off/Pick-up procedures:

Please make note that if you are dropping your student off or picking them up before and after school you will use the side door under the covered awning. During the end of day pick-up you will remain in your car but please have photo ID ready when you pull up to the door.  

You must notify the office by 2:30pm if you plan on picking up your student. 

Upcoming Events:

Picture Day: Cancelled until further notice

School Board Meeting: 9/24

1/2 Day of School: 9/30

Anti-Bully Month: 10/1

Spirit Week: 10/19 - 10/23

No School: 10/30

I look forward to working with you to continue this exciting, educational, and safe school year at Eyler!  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
