Dear Wonderful Wildcat Parents,
On behalf of our staff, I would like to say welcome back to Eastin-Arcola for our 2016-2017 school year. We’re looking forward to an amazing year filled with many more activities, field trips, events, and of course student successes and achievements.
This will be our third year of the re-opening of Eastin-Arcola. These last two years have been such a great foundation to the growth and expectations we have planned for our school. During these first two years our students have experienced great academic achievements, athletic successes, and have worked hard to become students of great character. Our focus at Eastin-Arcola is to be the best we can be in MIND, BODY, and SPIRIT. We continue to focus on these high expectations, and will do our best to model this for our students each day. We want our students to strive to be very well-rounded during their time at Eastin-Arcola, maximizing their involvement in school. This will really help them as they enter high school, becoming involved in many clubs, athletic teams, and organizations.
We look forward to your continued participation as parents to help support and maintain our school and school culture. We encourage you to stay focused on your child(ren)’s education, both at school and at home. We welcome your involvement on campus, and eagerly await your participation with various committees and activities, as well as our Wildcat Parent Club (WPC). We know the more connected our families are with our school, the more complete our school community will continue to be. Eastin-Arcola is not only your child’s school, but it’s their extended family and home as well.
We ask that you become familiar with this handbook, as it will answer many questions you may have about our expectations at Eastin-Arcola. Always feel welcome to call or come to the school should you have any further questions or concerns, and especially if you have some wonderful ideas or suggestions for us! Let’s continue to work together as we build Eastin-Arcola into an excellent school. As parents/families, you are the most important part of completing the strong connection your child(ren) will have with our school. Thank you in advance for everything you will do to help make your child(ren)’s school experience the very best it can be.
Very respectfully and with much enthusiasm,
