EES Handbook 2019-2020

A Message From Mrs. Heersink

Dear Eatonville Elementary Families,

Welcome back to the 2019-2020 school year! EES is an exciting place to learn. It is a place where academics are at the core of all that we do; where children are challenged to be all they can be; and where parents are encouraged to volunteer and support all EES students.

This year we are starting our V.I.C.E (Volunteers in Collaborative Education) Squad.  We have quite a few male volunteers and we highly encourage dads, family members and community members to come to the school and help support our students.  It can be working with struggling readers to just being a presence in the lunch room or on the playground. Please stop by the EES Office and fill out a bright green form and we will do the rest!

Eatonville Elementary A-Stem Lighthouse School has a highly dedicated K-5 staff; they work hard to provide the best education possible. Our classrooms and Maker Spaces will be busy and vibrant places to learn and be curious. We welcome you to be a part of this process by being in communication with your child’s teacher and supporting students at home. Also, you are always invited to volunteer in the building or your child’s classroom.

At Eatonville Elementary, we are committed to providing a safe nurturing environment-one which fosters the development of the skills needed to be college and career ready. We will continue to strive to understand how all students best learn and to develop an array of teaching strategies which address individual learning styles. We have implemented the Positive Behavior Intervention Systems (PBIS) to support positive relationships with our students.

I welcome back our excellent staff including new staff members to EES! They are coming back refreshed and ready to help each student strive to meet Common Core Standards. Please take the time to introduce yourselves to your child’s teacher as we begin the new school year.

Being at school on time every day is important. Thank you to all the parents and students who have worked so hard to be at school on time and ready to learn. We want to continue encouraging on time arrival.

An open, positive, two-way communication is essential in a good partnership. Please contact teachers or administration with comments or questions you may have. We currently have a wonderful website to help with communication. Look for our calendar, handbook, supply list and newsletters. Our website is The staff and I are thrilled about the wonderful opportunities that are waiting! I encourage you to join the excitement!

Here’s to a busy, exciting and productive year at EES!
