Lots of fun to kick off our week together next week, Owls! 💙🦹♀️🦸♂️
We hope all of our owls have enjoyed this beautiful snow day. School is back in session tomorrow. 💙 Our Goodies with Grownups for students whose first initial of their last name is H-M is tomorrow from 7:00-7:30 am. K-1 students - remember to bring your Chromebook chargers back to school. 🦉 Our 100th day of school is now Monday, Jan. 30th.
Some of our sweet students in Girl Scout Troop 5405 donated soft drinks and water to our ESE staff yesterday as one of their "acts of kindness." This same Girl Scout Troop also made a large donation of food items to complete our holiday meal baskets for some of our ESE families.
Super Readers commence! It’s time for our Students vs Staff Reading challenge. Bookmarks are being sent home with students today. Let the fun begin. 📖
A huge shout out to Grayson! Grayson made Evening Star Elementary as well as his mom and dad proud this weekend. He placed 8th out of 48 3rd through 8th graders in the Benton County Spelling Bee. Way to SOAR little owl!!
Earlier this week, students in Mrs. Stacey’s class had fun building background knowledge for a science unit on animal adaptations: blubber hands! 🤗
We held our annual 4th grade ESE Spelling Bee right before winner break. Please join me in congratulating our top three winners - Grayson (1st), Rorie (2nd), and Emery (3rd) as well as all of our other Spelling Bee participants. The Benton County Spelling Bee is Saturday, January 21st at the Flagstone Church in Bentonville. Let’s all wish them well! 📣
Check out these WISE owls who received a positive office referral! Join us in giving them a shout out. 📣
This morning our Exploration Station was a hopping place with 4th-graders reading to kindergartners and others working with our Vex Go Robotics!
Everything is Awesome! At Evening Star we are living the DREAM because everyone is part of our TEAM. Our Owls and our float looked pretty COOL in the Bentonville parade.
Before Thanksgiving break, the Men's Razorback Hockey team worked with our PE Coaches to teach our little owls a few basic hockey skills. They shared this was the best time they have had in a long time and that all of our students were so very respectful. They would like to invite you and your family to join them at the Jones Center this Friday at 7:30 pm. Wear your favorite ESE gear as the Ice Hogs take on ETBU. Let’s go HOGS! 🐗#BentonvilleSchools

Our ESE Family would like to recognize and celebrate one of our very own ESE staff members - Coach LaRocco - on Veterans Day. Thank you for your service, Coach! https://tinyurl.com/4upwwz7w
Our 3rd Grade students participated in a community outreach project on Tuesday. They visited the VA hospital in Fayetteville, the Bungalows retirement home in Springdale, the Meadows, and the Village on the Park retirement communities in Bentonville. Students sang and delivered their "homemade" cards and letters to the residents. Many of our Veterans were touched and appreciated the beautiful songs our little owls sang. Here are a few snippets of their sweet voices: https://tinyurl.com/4h4tnfd8
