"Eaton Eagles, do their best, don't give up, care for one another, have their eyes on the world, and take action!" These words are our school motto, and last year, students experienced how these words are not just recited weekly but, they are at the core of who we are as a community. The Eaton community is resilient and have evidenced that not even a world pandemic can stop their efforts to provide the best learning experiences for their students.

At Eaton Elementary School students are at the center of each decision we make. In our learning community administrators, teachers, support staff, and parents work together to provide the best learning environment and experiences for our students. Through mutual respect, shared beliefs, and collective effort we commit our time, talents, and treasure to provide for our students. We believe in engaging the "Whole-Child" in our effort to educate our students. This means that not only are we focused on student achievement but, we are considering the social-emotional well-being of each child also. At Eaton, we commit to knowing our students and seeing that each child finds joy in learning, a sense of belonging in our community, and develop a foundation from which they can launch their future. At John Eaton, we believe in the power of the home-school connection. It is this partnership that has been the catalyst for the success of our students in our learning community. Together, we are Eaton!
