“Purple Up” for Military Kids – April is designated as the Month of the Military Child; a time to honor the sacrifices made by military families worldwide, with an emphasis on the experience of the dependent children of military members serving at home and overseas. We are celebrating military kids at Eisenhower on April 18th, so be sure to wear purple in recognition!

Box Tops– Please keep saving the Box Tops for Education and sending them to the school.  We send home sheets each month on which you may glue or tape the box tops. We appreciate your efforts in helping us collect these. Each little box top is worth 10 cents and last year we saved almost $1000.00! Look for products with the Box Tops for Education label.

State testing – State testing begins on April 2nd. As we all know, this can be a stressful and tiring time of year for your child. There are a couple of things that you can do to help ease some of their testing stress. Please make sure they receive plenty of rest at night and always start the day with a good breakfast. The testing schedule is below with dates for each 3rd-5th grade class.
