Dear Wolves,

As we wind down this school year, a lot of my work has already turned to planning the next by hiring and developing a master schedule that places more than 2000 students in seven classes. On Monday, you will receive additional information on how to review and modify your class requests for next year, and additional opportunities around late start, early dismissal and peer tutor. 

One elective that continues to thrive at Eastlake is AVID. This year we celebrate our first graduating class of AVID students and are incredibly proud that each of them will be attending college next year. 

Our AVID elective serves students whose academic performance does not yet match their potential. Essentially, AVID helps students learn how to learn. It places students in higher level classes and then supports them in becoming more independent, organized, committed and strategic learners. 

For more information on AVID, including student testimonials, please visit the AVID page on the Eastlake website. 

If your student might be a good fit for this program, please contact Sara Norris (snorris@lwsd,org) by May 7. 

Teacher Appreciation Week 
Next week we celebrated Teacher Appreciation Week. Our PTSA has helped plan activities to express our gratitude for their heroic efforts this year. Please take a moment next week to thank our amazing Eastlake Staff. 

Staff Spotlight
We will reserve a section in the Wolves Weekly Update for these expressions of gratitude. Send a Staff Spotlight to Amy Hill (amhill@lwsd.org) by Thursday at 4 PM, explaining the impact this Eastlake staff member had on your student and it will appear in the next Wolves Weekly Update.
