REMINDER: Tonight is Curriculum Night

Curriculum Night is a great opportunity for parents to develop an awareness of what their child experiences at junior high.  An overview will be given of the supports we have in place for Eisenhower Eagles, school behavior expectations, celebrations when expectations are followed, and extra-curricular activities.

The program will begin in the gymnasium at 6:00 pm and end at 8:20.

Please do not forget your food item to support families in need.

For additional details, you can download a document from Ms. Wilson here.
