REMINDER ABOUT BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS AT SCHOOL

Hello Eastvalley families!!!  As we have traditionally practiced here, we always encourage our families to come have lunch with their children in our cafeteria, especially on their birthdays!  Celebrating a birthday at school with their classmates makes their day extra special!  We want to create memories and give your child that opportunity to be recognized on their birthday!  Parents are welcome to bring birthday treats for their child to share with classmates for the celebration during lunch.

In order to minimize disruption to the instructional day and maximize student safety and well-being, we ask our families to follow the guidelines below:

  • At the front door, please ring the bell and have your ID prepared to present to the camera to be allowed access to the building.  As soon as you enter, please sign in in the front office to receive your guest badge.
  • Please wait for your child’s class to come to lunch in the front lobby or front office.  Birthday treats are reserved for lunch so it will not interfere with classroom instructional time.
  • Please make the teacher aware with 24 hour notice (email, written notification, or phone call) that you will be bringing birthday treats to lunch.  In case there is a food allergy in the classroom, the teacher can inform the lunchroom monitors to ensure any students with diagnosed food allergies are not receiving food hazardous to their health.  The teacher can also provide an alternate treat for the student if provided by that student’s parents.
  • Please bring enough treats for everyone in your child’s class so no students are excluded.  Please do not bring treats for students in other classrooms for food allergy concerns and equity reasons.

Thank you for helping us continue to celebrate student birthdays here at Eastvalley!  We appreciate your support and want to invite you to enjoy lunchtime with your child anytime, but especially on their birthdays!  Thank you and we hope to see you around Eastvalley soon!

 

Sincerely,

 
Kendall Foster

Principal

What is a Student Learning Objective (SLO)?

Dear Parent/Guardian,

It is time for your student to take the online SLO post-test! You may recall learning about the online SLO assessment in August/September 2015 when your child took the pre-test assessment.

What is a Student Learning Objective (SLO)?

SLOs are subject-specific learning objectives that provide growth measures for student learning. Teams of Cobb County teachers from across the district developed the SLO assessments. The SLO implementation requires teachers to use online assessments to determine student growth over the course of the year. The results of these assessments ensure that students, teachers, and Eastvalley Elementary are moving toward a common vision of exemplary instruction and high levels of student academic growth.

Your child will take the online SLO post-test with his/her teacher sometime between Monday, May 2nd and Friday, May 13th. Please contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions. Thank you for your support!

Sincerely,

Dr. Sage Doolittle

Assistant Principal

Eastvalley Elementary School
