Hello Eagle Crest Families!


August is upon us, which means time to get ready for the upcoming school year!  This edition of the Eagle Crest Newsletter contains information about upcoming dates and events, school supplies, signing up for extended day care through community schools and much more!  We also have a check-in from our sister school in Uganda. 

I know that there are still some questions about how school may look different/similar to last year and previous years.  Right now our biggest goal is to get students safely in school for in-person learning.  Flexibility is the name of the game, and as the school year unfolds we’ll continue to respond thoughtfully.  Thank you for your patience as we navigate this new year.

Our office is slowly opening throughout the first week in August.  Please feel free to reach out at any time, and know that we will be working hard to get back to you ASAP.

A Note from the Dean of Students

Hello Eagle Crest Families!

​As we continue to prepare for the upcoming school year, I know many of you will be excited for the posting of class lists! Each year, the Eagle Crest staff takes a lot of care and time to place each student with one of our fabulous teachers. We take into consideration the whole child, their individual needs and strengths, and account for the overall makeup of each classroom and grade level.

If your child is not currently looping with their teacher, you can stop by Eagle Crest on August 13th after 8:30am to find their placement for the 2021-2022 school year. We can't wait to welcome every student back into our classrooms!

​Have a fantastic week!

School Supplies

Now is the time to get a jump on school supplies for the new year. There are sales all around town, and hopefully you can get in and out before it gets too packed!  Here is the link for the SVVSD official school supply lists for all grades PK-8 across our district.

There is a section on the document that lists potential "extra items" you could purchase and donate to the school.  At Eagle Crest we would especially love and appreciate boxes of tissues, cleaning wipes, and extra sticky notes!

PTO Volunteers Needed

Eagle Crest PTO needs 4 volunteers to organize our annual Laps for Leadership fundraiser!

We want to make sure 100% of our donations goes directly back to Eagle Crest by keeping this fundraiser in-house. Without volunteers, our PTO will have to use a national fundraising company to help us run this event. Last year, we funded VEX Robotics Kits for our 5th graders to use this year in the Garage, we brought the University of Colorado Shakespeare program to 3rd-5th graders, a virtual Jeff & Paige concert to Kindergarten-2nd graders and supported staff with conference meals and classroom resources and so much more! This committee needs to be formed by September 15th. Please contact Volunteer Coordinator Katie Lancaaster at to help!


What’s Happening in Uganda at our Partner School!

Last year when the schools in Colorado closed due to Covid, the schools in Uganda also closed.  The difference was that in Uganda the students at our partner schools did not have access to the internet or to devices to use for learning at home.  Normally in July all schools are open and everyone is busy learning.  At Mwebaza Annex, most of the students have not been to school for over a year. It’s hard for us to imagine it, but in some parts of the world that is exactly what is happening. There is also a huge shortage of vaccines in Uganda, and most teachers and other adults have not been able to get one yet.  We are all hopeful things will change soon for our communities in Uganda, and schools and businesses will be able to reopen.


The great thing about the teachers at Mwebaza Annex is that during the Covid shutdown they have been walking to school to spend some of their day learning how to use the computers in their brand new lab. The lab is powered by solar energy and has many programs and learning games for the teachers to learn and practice. In this way, they will be ready to teach the students when they are able to come back.  The teachers and students are all very excited for school to start up again and for learning to get back on track!   


Stay tuned for information about joining The Mwebaza Annex Club this year at Eagle Crest!  Look for the Mwebaza information table at “Meet Your Teacher” night on August 16th.
