The scores are a preliminary, with two more opportunities for the student to meet the passing standard. The scores below are a reflection of your child’s handwork, our teachers dedication and the amazing support we receive from our community.

EISD ELEMENTARY SUMMER SCHOOL Fundamental classes in reading and math will be offered for students who were in grades K-5 during the 2007/2008 school year. The program is designed to sup- port students who need additional help mastering grade level objectives. The classes will be offered in two separate sessions daily, Monday through Fri- day, for a period of three weeks. Students may be enrolled in either one or two classes. Instruction will be based on individual student profiles provided by the current classroom teachers. Profiles will identify the course objectives that need additional reinforcement. The Eanes ISD Elementary Summer School 2008 Information and Registration packet which provides the dates, times, location, and cost for the elementary summer school sessions, as well as the registration form, are available in the school office. The deadline for registration is Thursday, May 15, 2008.

Each year, across the nation, one event brings together entire communities to take part in the fight against cancer. That event is the American Cancer Society Relay For Life® on April 26- 27 from 7:00pm to 7:00am. It’s a time and place where people come to celebrate those who have survived cancer, remember those we’ve lost, and fight back against a disease that touches too many lives, and because our Cedar Creek “family” knows the struggle first hand, we want to do all we can to help in curing this dreaded disease! Won’t you join us by supporting our efforts ? We have lots of opportunities for you to do that. We need help in running some Fundraisers, creating our “camp site” for the event; supporting our efforts cheering us on at the event throughout the evening and early morning! Please go to our website at http://relay.acsevents.org/site/TR/RelayForLife/ RelayForLifeHighPlainsDivision?fr_id=5607&pg=entry (copy and paste in your URL window) and click on Donate or purchase a luminaria and just browse through the website to learn more about the event and it’s contributions to our commu- nity. Please email our Team Captain, Barbie Britt @ firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions, comments, or ideas on how to help make this a huge success! If you know survivors, they are invited to attend a complimentary dinner at Westlake High School Stadium at 6:00 pm provided by Macaroni Grill, and are asked to take the first victory Let’s not be a short on staff next year – Donate to EEF Today! EEF’s report to the school board in March was slightly disappointing – the Eanes community’s gift to the District is projected to be about $100,000 less than last year. Therefore, if the donation trend matches last year during the months of April – August, that represents 2 staff positions in the District that could be lost next year. This news follows on the heels of the Administration and Board’s continued work on its vision for ex- cellence for the District over the next three years, a vision that includes possible new and innovative pro- grams for all of the elementary schools. Hopefully, this plan will not have to be curtailed due to the slight setback in EEF donations this year. That’s where you come in. Be proactive, be part of the solution and help keep our staffing at the same rate as last year without the Board having to use their planned curriculum expansion funds to do so. Donate today if you have not already done so – it’s not too late to keep our schools staffed next year at their current levels, and hopefully even expand! Every donation counts and we can fund this gap by working together. www.eaneseducationfoundation.org The Nurses Corner SOLIOSIS SCREENINGS : Due to Fifth Grade Math TAKS, the dates for Scoliosis Screenings have been changed to the 14th, 15th, and 16th. The fifth grade class has already viewed the video, “Scoliosis”, in prepara- tion for the screenings. All other details of the previously sent letter remain the same. Please do not hesitate to call me if you have any questions . LICE UPDATE: We have had a few children identified with lice, but it so far has shown up in only one kinder- garten classroom . Two fifth graders have also been identified. We have taken all the appro- priate precautions to try and eliminate and prevent its’ spread. If your child complains of their scalp itching, or you are suspicious of head lice infestation, consult your physician or the school nurse. VOLUNTEERS: If anyone is interested in helping out in the clinic, let me know. There are always opportuni- ties. I could actually use a “helper” during scoliosis screenings , and also during RSB in May. DONATIONS: If anyone has used clothes to donate, I could particularly use tops and bottoms for girls, all sizes.
