Welcome To Your May Eastview Elementary School
It's an Eagle Thing!

Join us for Cartonera Night!
Eastview Families,

Please join us for a celebration of writing! Every student at Eastview published a piece of writing. This was a joint project with Ms. Coltman and the classroom teacher. Students wrote poems, stories, or researched a topic. After the story was created, they took it through the entire illustration and publication process to create a Cartonera. We can't wait to share them with you! On May 17th, we will have an Open House style celebration. Come between 5:30 and 7:30 to read your student's Cartonera piece. Our Book Fair will also be running and PTO has planned silent auctions, raffles, and the opportunity to buy pizza for a $1.00 a slice. We will even have snow cones and snacks. See you there!
Teacher Appreciation Week
Everyday there are stories happening inside a school that would make you smile, break your heart, and inspire you. Stories that teachers live, every single day. Not just because it's a job to do, but because it's their life long passion to help children succeed. Thank a Teacher!! May 7th- May 11th is the week we are celebrating our teachers dedication, time, and the love of teaching our students. Let's show them this week with an extra hug, high five or a thank you.

The Importance of Sleep - Did you know?
Sleep is very important to your sense of well-being. It allows your body and brain to rest and prepare for the next day. Lack of sleep affects learning, memory, attention, and concentration. Children who do not get enough sleep tend to be sick more often than those who get plenty of rest. Children who do not get enough sleep may become overly active, cranky, and exhibit extreme behaviors. Some studies show that children who get poor grades in school tend to sleep less than students who earn A's and B's. When you don't get enough sleep, you have trouble paying attention in class and following directions.Lack of sleep makes it difficult to think clearly, so learning new things becomes more challenging. Losing even one hour of sleep at night affects how well you learn the next day.

Each person needs a different amount of sleep, but nightly sleep requirements tend to fall within predictable ranges.

Children 4-5 years old 11-12 hours
Children 6-9 years old 10-11 hours
Children 10-12 years old 9-10 hours

Some ideas for getting to sleep:

  • Make sure you have time to wind down before going to bed. Avoid physical, demanding, or exciting activities like playing video games or watching TV for at least 30 minutes before bedtime.
  • Try quiet activities like reading, listening to soothing music, drawing,or taking a warm bath at least an hour before going to bed. A bath immediately before bedtime can wake you up, rather than relax you.
  • Try to go to bed at the same time every night. Your brain loves routine. If you establish a habit of going to bed at 9:30, your brain and body will begin preparing for sleep at that time.
  • Do not have a TV in you bedroom. Children who have TV's, video games, or computers in their rooms sleep less
