Retirement/Resignations at EES
 
Congratulations to the following teachers/staff who are retiring this year:  Sharron Bird has taught for 24 years, and Janet Jordan for 34 years!  Sylvia Wendel, para-educator, is retiring after 23 years and Miranda Taylor, S.T.A.R. reading coordinator, will be moving on after 5 years. These wonderful women will certainly be missed and we are sad to see them leave. We wish them all the best in their future adventures!  Staff changes include: Cora Lee Wayman, who will move up to teach 5th grade, and Malaree Parry, who will take a new position as EES Instructional Coach/Curriculum Specialist.

New teachers joining us include: Ainzley Henrie- 1st grade and Trisha Daniels- 3rd grade.  Mrs. Jodi Hansen (former EES Dibels Coordinator) will teach 1st grade.  We extend a warm welcome to our new teachers for the 2021-22 school year and are excited to have them here!

 
PTA Junior Olympics
 
Junior Olympics will be held by grade level this year.  Monday: 5th grade, Tuesday: 1st-3rd grade, Wednesday: 4th grade.  Activities will be held outside in the afternoon. Please make sure your student brings a water bottle and jacket, wears sunscreen, and good shoes for running/playing.
 

SUMMER BRIDGE BOOKS/

SUMMER READING PACKETS

EES will again sponsor a summer reading incentive program which helps prevent “summer loss”, strengthen academic skills, and kids return to school prepared. Students currently enrolled in Kindergarten through 4th grade are eligible to participate either through the purchase of a Summer Bridge Workbook OR the FREE Summer Reading Packet which focuses on Math, Reading, Language Arts, Writing, etc. Notes about both of these programs have been sent home. In addition to completing and returning the workbook/packet, students must read 20 minutes per day, 15 days each month (June, July, August) and turn in a reading calendar at the end of the summer to qualify.  There will be a Summer Reading Reward Field Trip in the fall for those who complete either program. Questions?  Contact school librarian: Shauna Wayman.
 

MAY DAY PROGRAM

This year our annual May Day Program will be held on Thursday, May 27th at 10:00 a.m.  The program will be held OUTSIDE at the Snow College football field. The May Day theme is “Night at the Movies” and students will celebrate through music and dance, weather permitting.  Please bring a jacket as it may be chilly outside in the morning.  The program will most likely be under an hour in length, and masks will be required due to the inability to social distance. We feel so fortunate to have a program this year and appreciate the hard work of the EES May Day committee and accommodations provided by Snow College.  Watch for additional information from your child’s teacher in the weeks to come!
