I hope you all have had the opportunity for some rest and relaxation during the summer, as well as time to enjoy friends and family. The first day of school is quickly approaching, and our students and parents are eager to start the new school year. The students of Eureka City Schools are truly fortunate to have a dedicated group of individuals like you supporting their learning.
To kick off the new year, I look forward to seeing each of you at our back-to-school meeting on Monday, August 20th. Upon arrival, please come to the Eureka High School Auditorium Foyer where you will be welcomed by your principal or supervisor. Continental breakfast will be available at 7:45 a.m. in the foyer. At 8:00 a.m. we will proceed into the auditorium for our meeting. A full schedule of professional development for the week is enclosed and posted on the website. Please note ETA (Eureka Teachers Association) is inviting members to attend a voluntary meeting in the cafeteria prior to the 8:00 a.m. official welcome.
Summer break is drawing to an end and it is time to start thinking about the first day of school. I hope you had the opportunity for some rest and relaxation during the summer as well as time to enjoy friends and family. The first day of school is Wednesday, August 22nd, and our staff are eager to welcome you to the new school year.
As you start thinking about the upcoming school year, I encourage you to talk with your child/children about what will define a successful school year. In school, children have a unique opportunity to have a fresh start each year. This can provide the opportunity for them to improve in needed areas and reinforce areas where they have been doing well.
