Message from the Principal

Dear Etiwanda Families,

It is hard to believe that the school year is almost over. I thoroughly enjoy visiting classrooms because I see evidence of critical thinking, exemplary citizenship, and positive room environments on a daily basis. I am so proud of our staff and community as we all work diligently to support our students.

Etiwanda Intermediate continues to make strides in our attendance this year. In fact, we ranked 1st among our district middle schools and 2nd overall in the district. I am very proud of your efforts in getting your students to school each and every. Students benefit the most from these efforts. Our goal is 97% which equates to 41 students absent each day. We also strive for fewer than 5, meaning each student will only be absent less than 5 days this school year. Let’s continue to have the best attendance during this holiday season.
We have had lots of success with our family fund raisers this year. Our next one is coming up at Blaze Pizza in the Victoria Gardens on May 17th. We appreciate all our families supporting this event.

We are continuing to grow academically as well as socially and emotionally by offering many opportunities for students to participate in extra-curricular activities. These activities may improve their confidence, help gain positive peer influences, and help integrity and honesty. EIS offers E3 STEAM classes, GATEWay classes, Cub Connection, Friends of Rachel, Safe School Ambassadors, Leadership, Intervention classes, Intramural Sports Program, and much more. The unique dedication from our staff is what makes all these support programs possible.

Our solar project is approximately 80% complete. The fencing will be removed soon and we will have access to our track once again. The intensive construction has finished and now they are making the necessary connections with the inverters and electrical panels. Soon Edison will make the connections to that network and we will be finished.

We look forward to finishing the year strong with students showing what they know on the state and district level testing. Thank you for partnering with us to make this year so successful.

Proudly your Principal,

Mr. Kooyman

TDAP Immunization
Tdap
California regulations require all seventh grade students to have a pertussis vaccine booster, called a Tdap, before the school year begins. Official proof of a Tdap or DTP immunization, after the age of 7, is required before a student may receive books, class assignments or begin school next year.
 

Solicitation Near Campus

Once or twice a year, a handful of missionaries from local church groups visit the neighborhood and attempt to hand out religious literature. The laws prohibit them from distributing materials on school property, but since they are on public sidewalks they may distribute literature to the public. They are respectful of our students and they do not block students from walking or say anything if the student declines the information. We will address this situation during our morning student announcements to remind students that they have the right to say "no, thank you" to anyone handing out materials or flyers on the sidewalks around school.
 

Community Flyers/Information
Community Flyers
In an effort to conserve paper Etiwanda School District is using an electronic flyer instead of sending them home with the students.
