Eagle River Elementary has always been fortunate to have a very active and involved community. Research has proven to show that active community involvement and support is an important asset for students to be academically successful. There are many way to become involved with our school; below are just a few examples:
- Like our Facebook page to stay in the loop with events, updates, and other announcements!
- Reach out to your student's teacher about possible volunteer opportunities
- Attend parent/teacher conferences at the end of the 1st and 3rd quarters of school
- Advocate for us and for education by attending Anchorage School District's School Board Meetings
- Join the PTA (stay tuned for more information!)
- Keep in touch: If you have a profession, talent, skill, hobby, or possible business partnership opportunity, please let us know so we can integrate it into our school.

- Students go out to recess in any weather down to -10 degrees, so please dress them accordingly for the weather.
