EAGLE EYES RECOGNITION
One of the greatest gifts we can give another person is the gift of appreciation for the value they bring to people. To promote this way of thinking during December, I have created an Eagle Eyes Recognition online form for students, families, Unit 5 colleagues and community members to recognize the efforts of any staff members within Eagle Nation. We have so many wonderful activities and actions to be thankful for each day, and too often, in our hectic pace, we don't take the time to let others know they are appreciated! This month, please partake in this activity to let one of our staff members know their good deeds did not escape your "eagle eyes!"
Please consider recognizing an Evans staff member by completing this form. Also, feel free to recognize indviduals as many times as you want this month!

TEACHER EASE GRADING SYSTEMTeacherEase is an online grading program that better aligns with our instructional and grading/reporting shifts. For courses in which your child is given a standards based grade, you will use TeacherEase to monitor grades/progress. Since standards based learning philosophies and theories are common in many of Eagle Nation's classes, some teachers are choosing to use TeacherEase to report all of their grades - even those that are still being reported in a traditional format - due to some of the enhanced features the program includes.How do you become part of this beneficial educational shift? More information, both about TeacherEase and these grading/reporting shifts, is available on Unit 5's website! This page is updated frequently with beneficial information. Stay invested and involved with us. Thanks!TeacherEase support can be contacted at (630) 592-4200, ext. 2.Also, in a continued attempt to share information with you around these shifts in practice, please read this FAQ which answers some of the most frequently asked questions concerning these practices and reporting processes.
