National Honor Society: Eastover extends invitations in the spring to 4th and 5th graders who have 3 A’s and 1 B each quarter, equaling a cumulative GPA of 3.75 during the first semester. Students are required to write an essay about their experience with or ideas for service-learning projects.
An application is sent to all students who the Talent Development (TD) Catalyst and classroom teachers have determined eligible. If you meet the criteria, including the ability to demonstrate leadership, community service, and civic responsibility, you will receive an invitation in the spring to participate in the induction ceremony. It is a very special day, and we celebrate with a reception afterwards.
Special Area Classes: In addition to the challenging and innovative instruction in the regular classroom, all students rotate between five special area classes which include Music, Art, Media, Chess and Physical Education. These classes work hand in hand with the regular classroom to enrich the academic curriculum.
Cultural Arts & STEM Enrichment: Students participate in numerous arts and experimental activities that enrich their learning experience in Science, Social Studies and other areas of the curriculum. They participate in field trips throughout the year to enhance their classroom studies and have special events at school to supplement curriculum. In addition, students also have hands on experience with classroom pets and our Eastover garden.
Chess: Our 1st and 2nd grades benefit from weekly chess instruction and have the opportunity to join Eastover’s Chess Club, which competes locally against other elementary schools within the region.
