PARENT/GUARDIAN (10/17/2018)



Attention 10th Grade Parents: As part of the EVHS 10th grade curriculum, all 10th grade students will be participating in our 10th Grade Youth Frontiers Respect Retreat.  This high energy, interactive retreat is scheduled for Tuesday, October 30th.   A little bit about the retreat ~ Youth Frontiers is a nonprofit organization that has been partnering with schools across the country since 1987 to increase self-esteem, and emphasize kindness, compassion and respect.  The goal is to improve the way students treat each other in every hallway, lunch line and classroom! Last year Youth Frontiers worked with more than 110,000 students and educators throughout the country. The purpose of the retreat is to: Increase each participant’s sense of personal confidence and self-esteem, increase mutual respect and the way we treat others and improve the culture of the school by modeling kindness and compassion.

Your student will be excused from class on Tuesday, October 30th.  We will remain in the building, and the Youth Frontier staff will be running our entire days’ events. Teachers and EVHS staff will also be participating with the students to improve and enhance the relationships between teachers and students.

Students must bring a bag lunch to eat at the Retreat.  If you would like to have a bag lunch prepared for you through the Eastview Food Services, you can indicate that on Fee Pay when registering for the retreat. If your child receives free/reduced lunch, you can request that a bag lunch be prepared for your student on the Fee Pay site as well. The request for a bagged lunch must be made one week prior to the retreat.

The cost of this retreat is $20.00.  Please register and pay for your student in the district Fee Pay as soon as possible, as it is necessary for us to have an accurate head count to plan and execute the details of the day.

Experiences and relationships begun on this retreat will be referred to and built upon throughout their entire career at EVHS so it is important that our entire sophomore class attends the retreat.  Please contact us if your child needs a scholarship to attend, or please indicate below if you are able to donate money towards a scholarship for another student to attend.  If you have any questions regarding this retreat, please feel free to contact us. Visit for more information on Youth Frontiers, to access great parent resources and to watch a video about the Respect Retreat.
