• Dear Parents/Guardians,

                Welcome to the start another school year!  The El Dorado teachers and staff are enthusiastically preparing for the 2019-2020 school year.  Last year, the El Dorado Eagles improved their academic level on California State Standardized Tests.  Their success was a collaboration of parents and teachers!   Additionally, there were improvements in campus safety and student behaviors!  We are excited to build on those improvements and help our STUDENT EAGLES SOAR!

                As Kindergarteners begin their educational experience and older students prepare for another grade level please review the attached informational sheets.   Experience tells me that parental participation enhances the educational experience.  Your influence and active participation in your child’s education is very important!  These informational sheets attached have been developed to enhance academic achievement, improve campus safety, encourage student behaviors and overall improve educational experiences for our students. 

                Notices are:

    1. The blue notice is the CO-OPERATIVE COMPACT for STUDENT SUCCESS (CCSS) and outlines responsibilities and expectations.   By signing the agreement, a student will own their behaviors and know their responsibilities.  Parents sign when they review the agreement with their child.  Parents can also reinforce expectations and assist their child understand expectations and, of course, with homework.  Teachers will return a signed copy to the parent and keep the agreement on file.  It will be reviewed by the teacher with the class.  As necessary, individual discussions will be conducted with students that require reminder and encourage the student to meet expectations.
    2. The yellow notice is the PARENT RESOURCE for EDUCATIONAL PROGRESS (PREP) and outlines the PREP volunteer program.  The objective is to provide opportunities for parents / guardians / grandparents and other interested community members to actively participate in classroom and campus activities.  There are many ways to help:  in the classroom helping students with lessons, reading with students, assisting the teacher with individual attention and on campus with school activities.  Volunteer resources are important for a child’s school experience, added assistance for school staff and also for individual volunteers!   Please review the program and consider being an Eagle Volunteer.
    3. The pink notice is an application for the PARENT TEACHER ORGANIZATION (PTO) and outlines organizational objectives.  Of course, the organization provides an important service to our school and our children.  Please consider participating with this active supportive group.

                I am excited to start another year as an El Dorado Eagle and I look forward to the 2019-2020 school year.  The El Dorado teachers and administrative staff are prepared to assure El Dorado Eagles have a productive and successful educational year!  In concert with parents, community partners and the Lancaster School District Support Staff I am confident of our children have an exciting year ahead.    

                Please join us at Back to School Night to be held on Thursday, August 21 from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m.  The event will provide an opportunity for parents and community members to discuss the 2019-2020 school year, learn what wonderful plans the teachers and I have for our students, what exciting campus programs are available and an opportunity to ask questions or express concerns you may have!  I look forward to meeting you.   Please contact me if you have any questions, or if I can be of assistance.

     

    Sincerely,

    Todd Coleman, Principal
