    Summer 2020 7th & 8th Grade Welcome Letter

    Welcome to Robert Eagle Staff Middle School, where we nurture leaders who are engaged citizens, scholars, artists, and activists.

    Dear Eagle Staff Student and Family,

    Welcome to the Robert Eagle Staff Middle School community. It is an honor to partner with you in your middle school journey. Over the next few years you will have the chance to explore new ideas, master new skills, and learn from your teachers and peers. Our primary goal is to ensure that you as a student are challenged to grow in core academic content, in critical thinking and problem solving, in your ability to collaborate and communicate, and in developing a strong belief in yourself. We want you to have fun and learn that you can do anything with hard work and persistence.

    We hope that you are staying safe and strong during this difficult time.  We also hope to be able to gather together sometime before the new school year, and will let you know if and when that will be possible.  We know that partnership with our staff, students, and families is the key to establishing an effective learning community, and we invite you to join our Friends of Robert Eagle Staff PTSA.

    All students will take a full year of Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Math, and will be assigned to classes according to district designation such as HCC.

    STUDENTS WITH IEPs – We will review your IEPs carefully and meet with your teachers to make sure that we are providing the best supports for your learning.

    MATH PLACEMENT – Math placement will take into consideration the following criteria:

    • Next course in sequence
    • Teacher recommendation

    Physical Education: Students will be scheduled for one semester of PE unless they qualify for a PE waiver. PE waivers are available for the following reasons: health needs, religious belief, directed athletics, or enrollment in 2 year-long electives (World Language and Orchestra/Band). PE Waiver Forms will be available in October 2020.

    EXPLORATORY & ELECTIVE PREFERENCESPlease take time to complete the electives preferences form and return the completed form by Friday, May 15, 2020. You may return your form by mail to the school address below or you may send the information by email to eaglestaff@seattleschools.org.
