Dear Eastover Families,

I am so incredibly proud of our 36 students who prepared, rehearsed, and then performed, both in front of their peers during the school day and then in the evening performance, during our Eastover Talent Show!  A huge thank you to Katie Gardner, Shauntelle Angle, and Mrs. Kate Philp for their efforts in organizing this wonderful event.  Eastover truly has talent!

Everyone's least favorite spring flower, the Michigan orange construction barrel, is making a significant presence in our area starting on Monday.  I want to make sure that our families are aware of the major project nearby.  Westbound Square Lake, from I-75 to Woodward, is closing on Monday.  Please be prepared for back-ups and delays when making your way to drop off or pick up your child.  See the article below.

Coming up this week we have our first MSTEP testing sessions.  5th grade will be testing on Tuesday and Thursday.  All 3rd-5th grade families, please review the MSTEP article below as there are helpful tips in preparing our Eagles for success.  I hope to see many of our students and a treasured grown up at our PTO-sponsored Donuts with Grown Ups this week.  Additionally this week, our teachers having identified and invited families for spring conferences to be held virtually on Wednesday, April 17.

Reminders: Wednesday, April 17, is no school.  Thursday, April 18 is Panera Day, a PTO fundraiser (see article).

We continue to have a noon supervisor position open.  You can see the posting by clicking HERE.  Please be sure to look at job #6170 as that is the Eastover position. We have opportunities to be a Lunch Volunteer for parents/guardians.  See the article below for more details.

BREAKFAST:  If interested, a quick reminder to order your child their free breakfast for the upcoming week by 9:00 p.m. Sunday evening.  Details and the link can be found in the article below.
