Eater students caught doing good

J.W. Eater Junior High students were busy the week leading to winter break with a wide variety of activities taking place during and after school.  

The Positive Behavioral and Intervention Supports (PBIS) team presented students the opportunity to earn a free skating and pizza party for meeting school-wide expectations. More than 80 percent of the students were eligible to attend the after-school activity, and approximately 210 students were present at the event with each grade level having the chance to skate and eat with their peers.

The Eater Student Council along with sponsors Sara DeGraff and Rachel Smith planned a Thursday evening activity. Nine student groups and their staff sponsors went caroling after school, visiting homes and businesses around town and then returning to school for hot chocolate and cookies.  

For the sixth consecutive year, seventh-grade social studies teacher Neil Parthun organized a food drive to benefit the Community Service Center of Northern Champaign County’s emergency food bank. Eater students and staff donated 1,088 food items and more than $120 that were dropped off Thursday after school.
