Important Message from Mrs. Fern, Social Worker:

 

On Wednesday, November 13th, Eagle Academy will host THE BLUE BENCH for a presentation entitled: Bringing in the Bystander. This VOLUNTARY session is an evidence based sexual violence prevention program designed for high schoolers. The bystander model approaches all students as neither a potential perpetrator or victim, but instead as people who would want to be a part of the solution. The Blue Bench Prevention Specialists engage students to understand the role that they play in preventing sexual assault by becoming an active bystander.

 

This presentation will be VOLUNTARY and will take place during both the second and third periods on the 13th. If you have questions about the presentation, please contact Diane Fern at dmfern@dcsdk12.org or 303-387-0870.

 

Students that are interested in attending should contact Mrs. Fern or Mrs. Garth BEFORE the date of the presentation.

 

 


 

The snowy season is already here, please read about Snow Days at Eagle Academy:

Delayed starts DO NOT apply to Eagle Academy. When day schools have a Delayed Start, Eagle Academy does not because we start later in the day and most traffic and safety issues are solved by then.​

 

When the Highlands Ranch area schools have a snow day, Eagle Academy also has a snow day.

 

When the "after school activities" are cancelled, Eagle Academy's classes are also cancelled.

 

When Eagle Academy is closed, you will find out in four ways: by dialing our main number 303 387 0871, if we have a snow day, the answering system will say so. By checking your email because we will send out a mass email as soon as we know . People who opted to receive text messages will receive a text message, and by checking the main page of the district website www.dcsdk12.org, where the school closures are listed.

 

Sometimes the weather gets very bad after we are at school. If a decision is made to dismiss school early, you will get an email as soon as the decision is made.

 

 


 

 

Mrs. Clark’s corner, Volunteer Coordinator:

 

The Mobile Market is open to Eagle Academy Students every Monday before school. Students who would like to shop for free food items must come to school early - between 1:30-2:15pm.

 


 

This year, Eagle will get its very first PROM!

 

More details will come, but here is what you need to know now.
