Quarter 3 ends on March 16
National History Day Regional Awards!
This past Saturday, 62 Eastwood students participated in the National History Day Regionals competition at IUPUI. Students used feedback from the Eastwood fair to revise their projects and were ready to demonstrate their expertise on their topic. We are very proud of their polished presentations, community support for each other during the awards ceremony, and their commitment to learning. A special congratulations to the 8 6th grade students who will move onto the State competition, April 14th at Ivy Tech!

What are Conduct Scores in Middle School?
How is your child conducting themselves at school? In middle school it is more than just “good behavior”, we want to see students actively following our IB Learner Profiles and classroom Essential Agreements. Please review the MSDWT Conduct Grading Scale (as published in Agenda Book on p.110). Ask, is your child “living the IB Learner Profiles?”

Canvas is Eastwood's Blended-Learning Environment
Grades from Canvas will NOT automatically transfer into Skyward. Canvas gives students and teachers one location to own and manage learning. It is a way to simplify teaching and learning by connecting all the digital tools teachers use in one easy place. Canvas can dramatically increase student-teacher communication and it personalizes the classroom in a way that is impossible using traditional means. It’s a powerful tool that supports learning and instruction on any device at any time. Learn more about Canvas here: https://youtu.be/7tdrDiVSyLA

Academic Help - Wednesday Student Support
Each Wednesday morning students can get specific help on assignments or projects from a teacher. Students must fill out an ORANGE PASS and have it signed by the teacher who is giving the help.
Students must arrive between 8:30-9:10am in order to participate.
Students will enter at Door #1, sign in upon arrival, and report to the teacher.
Students will not be permitted to go to lockers, so bring all materials.
Students without a signature will not be allowed to enter.
