Celebrating Our Year – A Special Thank You

Etiwanda Intermediate School Continues to provide “Excellence in Education”

Our outstanding school programs and dedicated staff continue to bring praise and recognition to our school. This past year our district rolled out three district wide programs: Kagan Cooperative Learning Strategies and Structures, Universal Access Time for designated instruction to meet the needs of individual students, Technology in every student’s hands by providing a Chromebook for every student, as well as implementation of the nation’s Common Core Standards. With the new changes, our traditional programs continue to bring recognition for our extraordinary staff. Our staff participated in Kagan Cooperative Learning Coaching, ensuring every teacher was providing an engaging learning environment by implementing Kagan structures and strategies correctly. Our teachers put in many hours exploring programs and apps to fully utilize the latest technology with their students. Finally our staff embraced the change from California ‘97 State Standards to Common Core Standards.

As a result of our reputation for excellence, we hosted a group of aspiring new educators from China. It is with pride that we share with others the outstanding programs we have here at EIS, but we are most proud of the wonderful students and their impressive accomplishments and excellent behavior. Our visitors often share with us how impressed they are with our students’ behavior and attitude, the warm, supportive learning environment, and the students’ joy for learning that is so obviously prevalent throughout the classrooms and school.

As Justin Holiday stated in his message to our students, “finish the year strong”’ and that is exactly what they did. 64% of our students qualified for the either the Principal’s High Honor Roll or Principal’s Honor Roll by earning a 3.5 and above GPA at the end of each trimester. Over 500 students are attending the High Honor Roll field trip by earning 4.0 and above GPA for two consecutive trimesters. With the due diligence of our Academic Advisor, Ms. Townsend, and our 8th grade SCORE (Students Consistently Opting to Reach Excellence)Team Mrs. Ulibarri and Ms. Martin, this is the first year we are not socially promoting any 8th grade students. All 430 participated in the 2015 Promotion Ceremony. Our Leadership students, under the direction of their advisor, Ms. Rivas, our Peer Mediators lead by Mr. O’Neill, and our F.O.R. Group, guided by Mr. Kooyman, have donated over $5000.00 in monitory donations or products to students and families in need. EIS Wildcats continue to amaze me with their kindness, respect and consideration for each other. I have cherished every moment as Etiwanda Intermediate School’s principal the past 13 years, having the privilege of working with wonderful students is a blessing. They provide the joy and rewards that come from such an important responsibility as that of an educator. Thank you for entrusting me with your children.

Mrs. Janella Cantú-Myricks

Tdap
California regulations require all next year’s seventh grade students to have a pertussis vaccine booster, called a Tdap, before the school year begins. Official proof of a Tdap or DTP immunization, after the age of 7, is required before a student may receive books, class assignments or begin school next year.
 


Community Flyers
In an effort to conserve paper Etiwanda School District is using an electronic flyer instead of sending them home with the students.
 


ESPRI - Parent & Student Access to Grades
The easiest way to stay informed on your child's grades is through Espri. Every student and parent is issued a user name and password starting in sixth grade or at registration for other grades levels. Returning students and parents use the same user names and passwords to access ESPRI. Please contact the school office if you need assistance connecting to ESPRI, our 24/7 access to student assignments and current grades.
