IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR PARENTS REGARDING THE START OF SCHOOL FALL 2014:

This coming fall, on Tuesday, September 2 and Wednesday, September 3, the first two days of the 2014/15 school year, we will not have classes for students at Eagle View Elementary School.  During these two days, we will be scheduling parent-student-teacher conferences for the purpose of setting goals for the coming school year.  The first SCHOOL DAY for Eagle View students will be Thursday, September 4.

In August, you will receive a letter from the school indicating when your child is scheduled for the conference.  This will be the only time set up for parents to meet with their child’s teacher before school begins.

********************************************************************

CLASS ASSIGNMENTS FOR 2014/15

Every summer the elementary office receives a number of new student registrations and notices of students leaving the district.  In order for the office to appropriately place new students in classrooms without causing an imbalance of gender and academic needs, we do not place next year’s teacher on the student’s report card.  Class lists will be finalized and will be POSTED AT EAGLE VIEW SCHOOL AFTER AUGUST 22.  Teacher assignments will also be available on your Skyward account AFTER AUGUST 22.  (Any teachers noted on that site before August 22 may not be the student’s actual teacher.)

 

Please do not call the school asking what class your child will be in.  Stop in at the school or visit the website AFTER AUGUST 22. Thank you!

Position title: Literacy Tutor – Minnesota Reading Corps

Further your career with meaning: Grow the skills of children.

You can help children succeed in school by giving them the extra support they need to read. Whether you’re looking to explore a new career in education, reenter the workforce or simply want to work with kids, you can make a direct impact by serving one year as a Minnesota Reading Corps Literacy Tutor at Eagle View Elementary. One full time Elementary Literacy Tutor position is available.

Minnesota Reading Corps, the nation’s largest state AmeriCorps program, trains tutors to directly impact over 30,000 children age 3 through grade 3 in schools across Minnesota. As a tutor, you will be trained to implement proven research-based strategies, monitor progress and help children believe in themselves and succeed—all while building your own skills and professional network. Reading Corps has seen real results and is helping catch children up to their peers.

During your eleven-month AmeriCorps service, you’ll receive extensive training, support and general professional development opportunities. In addition, you will receive a modest living allowance of about $484 biweekly, an education award of $5,645 and other benefits if eligible. Most tutors will begin on the first day of the program year, August 10, 2014. Strong preference is given to applicants who can begin on time. Limited make up trainings will be available to late start tutors.

Elementary Literacy Tutors work one-on-one with K-3 children who need help learning to read. They use prescribed literacy interventions and conduct weekly progress monitoring to ensure their students are on track to read at grade level by the end of third grade. They commit to daytime hours.

Qualifications

  • Strong interest in education, specifically helping young children practice reading skills
