Welcome to The Eagle information page! 

The Eagle is the Evansdale PTA’s monthly newsletter to parents. A one-page (front and back) document, it contains critical dates/time/places coming up that parents need to be aware of. Consider it “news you can use” for the month in one convenient place. 

The Eagle is published on the Friday of the first week of each month. Distribution is via student couriers but extra copies are available in the front office. Last year was the first time we published a Spanish version of The Eagle and we hope to do so again in 2014-2015.

FAQs

Can I submit an article for The Eagle?

Yes! All articles or photos must fall into one of the following categories. Articles relating to outside programs, business advertising, or anything other than the categories listed below will not be not published.  
    •    PTA program
    •    PTA event
    •    School-related profile, program or event
    •    Evansdale Foundation profile, program or event.

Examples of things to write about are Eagle Trek, science fairs, school performances, Spirit Night events, Accelerated Reader, cleanup days, etc. 

When should I turn in my article/photos and in what format?

Articles/photos are always due on the Wednesday of the week preceding the following week when the newsletter is published. This enables us to have adequate time to get the articles translated into Spanish. 

A tentative deadline schedule for submitting potential articles/photos is as follows:

Publication Date Submission Deadline
 Sept. 5 Aug. 27
 Oct. 3 Sept. 24
 Nov. 7 Oct. 29
 Dec. 5 Nov. 19
 Jan. 9 Dec. 31 
 Feb. 6 Jan. 28
 Mar. 6 Feb. 25
 Apr. 3 Mar. 25
 May 1  Apr. 29

In what format should articles/photos be submitted?

Include your article in the text of an email (rather than as a separate Word document or text attachment). Include the issue and subject you are submitting about in the subject line of your email (e.g. September Newsletter-Fantastic Friday).

Attach relevant logos or photos as JPEGs, not PDFs.

Who do I submit articles to, contact about an article idea or ask questions?
