Dear Students and Families,
Welcome to Etiwanda Intermediate School… Home of the Wildcats. To our returning students, welcome back! To our newest wildcats, I want to welcome you into our Wildcat family for the 2017-2018 school year. We’re looking forward to seeing you Monday, August 7th, the first day of school. I’m sure our students will return reenergized with a hope that they will have the best year yet.
Ongoing communication is vital to be “in the know” and engaged in your students middle school life. I invite you to take a look at our school website which provides information on upcoming events, important teacher webpage links, announcements, and many other educational resources. Our online gradebook, Aeries.net, provides you with a live view of your student’s grades. A wonderful feature on Aeries.net is the email message that is customizable so you can receive alerts on a weekly basis. You will also receive my weekly auto dialer message and email blast to inform you about the upcoming week’s events. This contact information is compiled using your preferences in the Aeries Parent Portal.
I am happy to announce that our new PTSO is off and running. Our membership drive will begin when school starts on August 7th. In order to encourage more participation, one class with the highest membership percentage at each grade level will earn a BBQ lunch. We are looking forward to the many events planned this year as a way to promote a positive, safe learning environment where students want to be.
Volunteering at school can help build a strong, lasting relationship. If you are interested in volunteering this year. Please go to the Etiwanda Intermediate PTSO link on the school’s website. Also, Dads interested in becoming Watch D.O.G.S., we will have an orientation on August 23rd at 6:00 PM in our auditorium. You are a huge asset to our school and we look forward to seeing you August 23rd to sign up.
Traffic can be impacted greatly after 7:25. Supervision will begin at 7:00 and students arriving at that time will be directed to the Gym. You may consider dropping your child off shortly after 7:00 to avoid the traffic congestion. Our kitchen also provides breakfast from 7:00-7:30 for students who arrive early. To help with traffic, “drop-off” and “pick-up” locations are located in the front of the school and along Victoria. Pick up down by the church (Pacific Electric Trail) is not a suitable location for pickup due to the lack of supervision and competing traffic with Grapeland Elementary School.
Etiwanda Intermediate’s vision is based around building meaningful relationships with students and families, delivering rigorous curriculum tailored so all students can be successful, and using relevant resources to stimulate multiple learning styles. With the academic, social and emotional development in forefront, all students will feel supported and confident to continue their passion for learning. Etiwanda Intermediate is the Emerald of Etiwanda where students want to come to school.
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!
Proud to be a Wildcat and especially proud to be your principal! Mr. Kooyman

TDAP Immunization
Tdap
California regulations require all 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.
 

Solicitation Near Campus

Once or twice a year, a handful of missionaries from local church groups visit the neighborhood and attempt to hand out religious literature. The laws prohibit them from distributing materials on school property, but since they are on public sidewalks they may distribute literature to the public. They are respectful of our students and they do not block students from walking or say anything if the student declines the information. We will address this situation during our morning student announcements to remind students that they have the right to say "no, thank you" to anyone handing out materials or flyers on the sidewalks around school.
 

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