Habit #4 – Think Win-Win:

EGM has always set high standards, and to reach “Lighthouse” status, our next step is to include the home in our habits practice. This punch card is for your child to complete activities during the first semester of school this year. As you complete an activity and have your child jot a short note on the activity to turn in to his/her teacher, the teacher will punch a hole in the card. As we work to reach “Lighthouse” status this year, involving your family and talking about the habits at home will definitely be a “win/win” for everyone. There is no penalty for not completing any activity, but we will have a reward for those students who have at least one hole for each month.

I love hearing stories of how these seven habits spill over from school to home.

Message from the Principal:

Parents,

Thank you so much for helping us transition to being a peanut-free school. We continue to ask that you not bring fast food into the cafeteria. Most fast food restaurants use peanut oil in their food preparation, which can be life-threatening to some of our students. I appreciate your support of this request. Read this website for ideas of Peanut Free snack.

Also, thank you for “hugging the curb” during carpool times. It makes it so much easier to have two lanes of cars when your car is close to the curb. Read Carpool Procedures

As always, you’re the best!

MEDICATIONS:

If your child will need medication during the school year, a parent or guardian MUST bring the medication and the appropriate forms here to school. The school needs a parent form and a Physician form for each medication. These forms must be updated each school year. Medication, as it is applies to school, includes all prescriptions and over the counter medications. Forms can be found under Eden Gardens Quick Links at the right of this page or click here.

CARPOOL REMINDERS:

“Hug” the curb when waiting to go into the carpool driveway. That is the only way we can have room for the exiting cars to travel on down to Line Avenue. Do not “swing out” before turning into the carpool driveway, as it causes the exiting carpool line to stop because there is not enough room to pass.

Please do not “cut” in the carpool line. Carpool is a way of life at Eden Gardens. If you choose our school, then you also choose carpool or bus to transport your children to and from school. If everyone follows the procedures in place, our carpool will move as quickly as possible.

We want to be good neighbors, so please do not block driveways.
