Spring Greetings Wildcat Families,We are just five weeks away from the end of the school year and we are as busy as ever! We have certainly explored “A Universe of Possibilities,” teaching and learning our new Common Core State Standards, CAASPP-SBAC testing, and college exploration. Our students have had many opportunities to experience success. This time of year is always busy as we try to get everything accomplished. Our teachers will be wrapping up lessons in preparation for the year’s end.We have a lot of exciting things going on as the year comes to an end. CAASPP-SBAC testing will conclude and make-up testing will begin April 20th – 24th. 8th grade Science CST testing will be given Wednesday, April 22nd. Our GATE field trip will be Thursday, April 23, The 6th Grade All City Track Meet and Pentathlon will take place on Saturday, April 25th. We end the month with our grand finale of the year, Extravaganza. Extravaganza is on Wednesday, April 29th at 5:00pm. Parents, students, and staff will have the pleasure of listening to our Concert, Wildcat, and Jazz Bands perform while enjoying dinner from Chick-fil-A or snacks from a selection of food vendors arranged by our PTSA. Our Annual Art Exhibit located in the auditorium will display student art work from the advanced art elective. Parents and students will also have an opportunity to peruse books at the spring book fair in the library. The Friends of Rachel team will be collecting items for the House of Ruth, and Yearbooks will be on sale. Gates will open at 5:00pm. The final month of school is also packed with learning and fun.As I conclude, I am asking parents to continue being involved in your child’s education. Parental involvement is important and crucial to the success of our school. Reminding your son or daughter the importance of following the school rules will help guarantee that our students make correct choices. Our hardworking and wonderful PTSA is in need of parents for next to support our school next year. PTSA cannot function without an active board and we need you! The success of EIS rest on our collective effort; please consider becoming a member of the Etiwanda Intermediate School PTSA. If you would like to get involved with PTSA, please stop by the office and fill out an interest form.
