End of 1st Semester Timeline: Supporting Our Eastview Scholars

Eastview Learning Community, 

Thank you for the continued support for your student/s as we complete the 1st Semester / Q2.  This is a challenging time of the school year for all of our scholars. As we approach this transition your support for extra time to complete homework, preparation for assessments and culminating projects, while also demonstrating care is critical in the home stretch.  As parents and educators, we have a profoundly positive influence when we relentlessly support and challenge our children.

Though parenting and educating is complex – at the foundation is simplicity and innocence. We also continue to help our students understand the power and the GREAT RESPECT WE HAVE IN OUR INCLUSIVE – EASTVIEW FAMILY and how we can continue to reach out to others in our hallways and classrooms, in our families and communities, to create a chain reaction of caring and compassion.

Please see the important upcoming dates, details and messages to support our Eastview Scholars in academic success and building quality relationships.

Simple messages to our students and scholars from Parents / Guardians / Teachers to build relationships and support success

Greet me:  Wish me good morning.LearningMatters

Smile: Let me see happiness in your eyes.
Give me your attention: Sit and talk with me; even if only for a second.
Imagine with me:  Help me dream; don’t just tell me what I need to do.

Ask about me: Inquire about my life, the game I played, the places I
go.
Let me have time: Time to let things sink in, time to think, time to reflect & process.
Demand of me: Hold me accountable. Don’t let me get away with what you know I am capable of doing better.
Notice me: Leave special messages. A quick note that says you notice something right.
Let me ask the questions: Even if they are off topic; it will show that I am thinking about new perspectives, curious, and willing to learn more. Let me have the chance to show what I am wondering about, not just what I know.
Engage me: I came to you in love with learning, Keep me excited, Keep me wanting more.
Trust me: Believe that I can do it. Allow me the chance.

Principal – Eastview High School
