EAGLE meets occur at the beginning and end of 1st quarter, the end of 2nd quarter, the beginning and end of 3rd quarter, and the beginning of 4th quarter. EAGLE meets are when parents/guardians, teachers, and staff come together to look at the progress and growth of our children, and reset academic goals. In EAGLE meets, parents and guardians create their own goal for their child and identify how they can help their child meet these goals.
