Eatonville Superintendent Gary Neal’s November newsletter:

Dear Eatonville School District Families, Staff and Community,

November allows us to share our gratitude to those around us. We are thankful to our families, community members and partnerships that allow our students to thrive.

There were a variety of events during the month of October. We kicked off the month by resuming volunteers in all of our school buildings. We have enjoyed the return of our helpful volunteers. Your time and dedication make a difference and impact. I was pleased and encouraged by the number of attendees at our Community Conversation Event that was held on Oct. 12. As an administrative team, we are working to use the input gathered to assist in future planning. The month ended with conference week. I am thankful for the time, energy and effort our teachers and parents put forth during conference week. Partnering together, we can ensure all students are able to reach their full potential.

It is a busy time on our farm. A lot has already been accomplished. Our start included taking back the summer garden from the weeds and beginning our lasagna compost pile. Pumpkins, green beans, corn, sunflower and pumpkin seeds and beets have been harvested. We celebrated our corn harvest with a corn feed and homemade corn muffins, as well as all the students that had September birthdays.

During October, we practiced our drama production of the story book, "The Little Old Lady that wasn't afraid of anything." Students performed this for all our preschool and kindergarten classes. All students were able to pick out one of our pumpkins that was grown on the farm to take home.

Be sure to take some time for yourself and your family this month.
