Pick Up Routines Reminder
As the calendar year is winding down, we want to remind you of important pick-up routines at EAB. Thank you in advance for always following our dismissal times and procedures!
Children may be picked up at their classroom, front gate or back gate.
Any student remaining on campus after their scheduled program(s) must be accompanied by a supervising parent or guardian.
Children taking the school busses are expected to go to their assigned bus lines at the Back Gate immediately after being dismissed from class at the end of the day.
If your child needs to be picked up from school before 3:10 PM, the adult picking them up needs to first complete a signed Authorization Slip in the Lower School Office to present to the guards at the gate.
Grade 1-5 Students may wait in the Front Gate if you are not picking them up at the classroom. Please note there is no supervision after school and we ask that you pick you students up promptly.
Holiday Musical Show
As the Lower School Holiday program draws near, we are reminded of the importance of music in the lives of elementary age children. A music rich experience for children singing , listening and or dancing and moving to music has many benefits. It involves more than just using voice or fingers as we know the child who is learning about music has to tap into multiple skill sets. Ears, eyes, small and large muscles, language, reading, writing are all used in order to fully engage in music. And so “ Tis the Season” to appreciate all our students as they gear up for the show.

We were excited by the amount of families that attended our recent PTO Coffee Workshops. Family members demonstrated their understanding and interest in learning more about two important topics at our school: scientific learning provocations in ECP and the Common Core mathematics in Grades 1-5. In ECP, teachers are using learning provocations to intentionally nurture curiosity in students and on this day, families practiced creating their own provocations which can also be used in homes! Grade 1-5 families identified how we use the Common Core standards to help students develop a deep understanding of mathematics strategies and how they can be supported at home. Below, are pictures of adults learning and being inquisitive in life! We hope you can attend our next event. Please click on these links to view the presentations if you were unable to attend!
