The Heards Ferry Eagle Alliance would like to welcome all new and returning students and families back to school! For those of you that may not know, the Heards Ferry Eagle Alliance is an organization comprised of parents, guardians, teachers, and staff of Heards Ferry Elementary. The overall goal of the Eagle Alliance is to foster a caring environment, supporting academic programs, planning events throughout the academic year, and providing overall support to the Heards Ferry community.
By joining The Eagle Alliance, you are supporting all of the programming throughout the school year. Membership is open to anyone who has a child at Heards Ferry Elementary or wants to support the school. In addition to joining the Eagle Alliance, money is solicited from all of us - parents and guardians - through the Eagle Fund, to financially support all of these wonderful programs and events that occur during the year. But it is not just money that is needed, we also need you to join Eagle Alliance because the officers, directors, and committee members cannot pull off all of these events alone; we need volunteers who are dedicated to enhancing student education and serving the Heards Ferry community.
Nearly every single academic program, including the Science Lab, Writing and Math programs, Field Trips, Art, Music, and Teacher Training and Staff Development (including International Baccalaureate and Orton-Gillingham) receives some level of financial support from the Eagle Fund.
The Eagle Fund also funds extra-curricular activities such as Chorus, STEAM Club and Science Club.
Additionally, the Eagle Alliance plans and funds every single event throughout the school year. These events include such favorites as STEM Day, International Day, Field Day, the Talent Show, School Musical, Dates with Mom/Dad, the Fall Festival and so many more. All of these events help build and reinforce the strong sense of community at Heards Ferry.
In 2019, the Eagle Alliance Investment Committee purchased sun shades for the playground, and also
added welcoming signage for the carpool entrance, the bus/visitor entrance, and signage on the side of
the School building itself.In 2018, the Investment Committee added Apple TV’s and Document Stands to the classrooms to allow shared reading time with the entire classroom at once, allowed teachers and staff to attend workshops and professional development programs for additional IB training. These are just a few examples of your Eagle Fund dollars and our parent volunteers hard at work.
The Eagle Alliance dues and other funds raised throughout the year directly benefit all Heards Ferry Students.
