22-23 Monday Minutes

7/11/2022

Good evening, Eaton families. We hope everyone is having a great summer break. This if your official first Monday Minute for the 2022-2023 school year. This message is jammed packed with dates, links, and reminders for you.

  1. July 22nd: 1st-4th grade parents will be able to log onto Skyward to find out your child’s teacher for the 22-23 school year. The program is currently locked until that time. If you don’t know your username and password you can reset it by going to Login - Powered by Skyward (tnk12.gov) and clicking on forgot username/password. Skyward is linked with your email we use for Skylert. You can also call our school Monday-Thursday between 8am-3pm at 865-986-2420 to get your log-in and password.  July 18th we will mail kindergarten letters that will detail any items that are missing and your child’s teacher.
  2. August 1st is registration day. We do ask that all returning students come on registration day. We have found having students come reduces anxiety prior to the first day of school, reduces confusion, allows families to meet the teacher, bring school supplies, and we ensure all yearly paperwork is completed accurately. On July 27th your child’s teacher will call to schedule a registration time with you. We’ve decided to continue with appointments because we’ve found it allows for families to speak with teacher and not be overwhelmed. New students will need to bring registration documents between 8-2:30, which can be found here New Student Information – Parents – Eaton Elementary School (loudoncounty.org)
  3. Our supply lists for next year are posted on our website.  Supply Lists – Parents – Eaton Elementary School (loudoncounty.org)
  4. Each grade level will have a parent night where you can learn more about the classroom and grade level expectations, speak with administration, and ask questions.
    • Tuesday, August 2nd – 1st grade @ 5:00
    • Tuesday, August 2nd – 2nd grade @ 6:00
    • Wednesday, August 3rd – 3rd grade @ 5:00
    • Wednesday, August 3rd – 4th grade @ 6:00
    • Tuesday, August 9th – PreK and Kindergarten @ 5:00
  5. Our district is doing a staggered start again for 1st – 4th August 2nd students with the last name A – K and August 3rd students with the last name L – Z. August 4th we will not have school and all students will attend on August 5th. Please note kindergarten and prek stagger start does look different. We have included those details in your letter and your child’s teacher will speak with you in more detail about this during registration day.
  6. Breakfast and Lunch: The waiver that allowed all students to eat free has expired, so please check the website for pricing so you can plan accordingly. Loudon County School District
  7. Traffic Patterns: The traffic pattern will remain the same as last year. If you are new or need a refresher maps and directions can be found here: Traffic Patterns – Parents – Eaton Elementary School (loudoncounty.org)
  8. PTO Leadership: Are you interested in being more active in our PTO next year? We are looking for parents to serve on the board and be committee chairs. If you are interested and want to know more, please email [email protected]. If you submitted the form posted on Facebook earlier this summer, we sent emails last week regarding our first meeting. We want to grow our PTO team so please reach out if you are interested.
  9. Sidewalk Smiles: We are looking for organizations, churches, or small groups to help support our safe drop off program on the sidewalk. First Baptist Church is sponsoring Monday and Tuesday, but we are still looking for other groups to sponsor the remaining days. All you need to do is be willing to greet kiddos with a smile, a warm greeting, and open/close their doors from 7:15-8:00. If you are interested, please email [email protected].
  10. Master School Schedule Reminder:
    • 7:10 our front doors open.

Good afternoon, Eaton Family.

  1. Dismissal Reminders: Please keep your car tag hanging until your child is in the car. Please pull up as close to the car in front of you as possible. Make sure the name on the tag is big enough for the people on the sidewalk to read.

  4. We did complete a safety check today and did a soft lockdown with our school. All students and staff did a superb job!
  5. We sent home Spring 2022 state test results with you on registration day but they are also now available for students and families at https://familyreport.tnedu.gov/.
  6. LAUNCH will begin on September 6th. Flyers will be sent home on August 22nd with information regarding signing up.
