Author Visit with Angelique Monet
 
October 16
 
 
 

We are excited to have author Angelique Monet visit River Eves on

Tuesday, October 16. In her book, The Bravest Worrier, she shows children "how to quiet the worry. How to push past the self-defeating negative talk in order to achieve their personal goals within school, sports, art, music, self-image and self-esteem. The Bravest Worrier lives in each and every one of us and even when we worry we can still be brave. Everything we want to achieve is right on the other side of fear.

Angelique Monet will show your students just how brave they can be!"


Personalized autographed hardcover copies of her book are available for purchase for $20. Order forms will be sent home with your child soon

and are due by October 9.

"Energy Star" Award 

 

 
Once again, River Eves Elementary has been awarded the “Energy Star” award 
for demonstrating superior energy performance. This recognition is for any school that 
uses 35% less energy and generates 35% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than similar 
building across the nation. Earning this type of honor is truly a team effort as all 
River Eves staff members must do their part to ensure optimal energy conservation. 
A big shout out goes to our custodial staff (Walter Gauthia & Soufiane Arhimi) for 
working diligently to guarantee that electricity is being utilized only when necessary 
during and after school hours.

Excellence & Achievements
 
 
We have two recent announcements to demonstrate our school is excelling and achieving.
Last week the Georgia Department of Education released a measurement called the “Beat The Odds” index. This analysis measures schools against those with similar backgrounds to see whether they performed better than statistically expected on the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI). The CCRPI is Georgia’s statewide accountability system that measures schools and school districts on a 100-point scale based on multiple indicators of performance. 

Our school fell into the “Did Beat The Odds” category. What this means is that our school was measured against others that have similar backgrounds (size, grade level, student demographics and student mobility), and by comparison, our CCRPI was higher than those schools. 
This week the Georgia Department of Education announced River Eves as a 2016-17 Rewards School in the “Highest Performance” category.  Reward Schools are Title I schools that are succeeding in their efforts to educate students from varying socioeconomic backgrounds.  
The Highest Performance distinction recognizes River Eves as among the top 5% schools in the state for the highest absolute performance over three years for the “All Students” group on state assessments.
The entire school community is proud of these recent accomplishments and will continue to provide an excellent education for all students.

Climate Star Rating
 
River Eves​ has received above average from the state for its school climate. River Eves Elementary Received a 4 star climate rating. The following message about Climate Star Ratings comes from the Georgia Department of Education:

School climate refers to the quality and character of school life – the "culture" of a school. A sustainable, positive school climate fosters youth development and student learning, which are essential elements for academic success, career-skill improvement and overall quality of life. The School Climate Star Rating helps determine whether a school is on the right path to school improvement.

"Research has shown us that school climate has a strong impact on student achievement," State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. "The data used to develop the 2014 Star Ratings proves this once again. If your school has a positive climate, it's giving students the environment they need to learn. You'll likely see high achievement there – or a school that's on the right track toward high achievement."  

Each school in Georgia received a 1-5 star ratings, with five stars representing an excellent school climate, and one star representing a school climate most in need of improvement. School Climate Star Ratings are an informational tool for schools, administrators, and parents; they do not affect the school's College & Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) score.

Interpretations of the star ratings are below; this information can also be found in the School Climate Law.

'5-star' schools ranked excellent according to the school climate index;
'4-star' schools ranked above average according to the school climate index;
'3-star' schools ranked average according to the school climate index;
'2-star' schools ranked below satisfactory according to the school climate index, or
'1-star' schools ranked unsatisfactory according to the school climate index.

School Climate Star Ratings are required by law; they also serve as a companion to the Department of Early Care and Learning's Quality Rated program, which includes an assessment of the learning environment.

 "Students cannot learn in environments that do not support them," Superintendent Woods said. "Georgia is committed to measuring the quality of its learning climates, and this aligned approach helps us assess that quality from preschool all the way through 12th grade."
