Message from the Principal

Dear Etiwanda Families,

It is hard to believe that the school year is already half way 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 recently had our first family night at Shakey’s Restaurant and the turn out was impressive. We appreciate all our families supporting this event.

Our parent and student survey results have been tabulated and reviewed. The staff and I appreciate your input as we look at the results to make school-wide decisions. I am happy to announce that there has been a noticeable improvement in all categories. Having our vision in the fore front, teachers, students, parents, and supporting staff have maintained high expectation for respect and achievement.

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 are now in the second year of implementing a Universal Access period. This period provides our students focused instruction based on their needs. A variety of data is reviewed using multiple measures to identify specific needs of the students. Then the classes are differentiated so teachers can deliver instruction at the students’ ability level. With the alternating A and B week schedule, students rotate to language arts and math each week. In addition to providing leveled instruction, the students receive scaffolding and/or enrichment opportunities that build off of their core curriculum.

Proudly your Principal,

Mr. Kooyman

Aeries Parent/Student Portal
Aeries- Parent & Student Access to Grades
The easiest way to stay informed on your child's grades is through the new Aeries Parent Portal. Every student and parent will be issued a user name and password starting in sixth grade or at registration for other grades levels. Returning students and parents use the same user names and passwords to access ESPRI. Please contact the school office if you need assistance connecting to the Aeries Parent Portal. Parent will need to submit their email in order to gain access. Student logins will be available shortly.
 

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.

Calling all Monopoly game fans! The Etiwanda School District is hosting our 5th annual Monopoly Tournament on Saturday, January 21, 2017. All proceeds from this event benefit all our school libraries.
 

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.
