Did You Know? 


Inclusion is the practice of including all individuals, regardless of their level of ability, in the learning community. The aims of inclusion are to secure opportunities for all students to learn alongside each other in general education classrooms with a focus on equal access to education for all students. This allows for the focus of education to be on the students’ abilities, not disabilities. Inclusion allows for all students to become accepting and understanding of one another’s talents, ideas, needs, personalities, and abilities. Inclusion in schools helps to foster a climate of acceptance, understanding, and respect.


eCADEMY K8 Social


eCADEMY K8 has staked its claim in the social media worlds of Twitter and YouTube. We are looking forward to taking advantage of both of these platforms to share successes and connect with families.  Our Twitter account will be used as a supplement to the official communications that are sent out to families via Schoolmessenger and Synergy and will never contain critical information shared through these channels.  However, we do hope to Tweet out celebratory notes or helpful reminders for families.  If you don't use Twitter, no worries.  If you do, follow us @ecademyk8 .  

We have also established our channel on YouTube and moved our previous Dragon Lair Cafe videos to this new channel. Please subscribe to our channel and click the notification bell so you will get notified when we go live or when we post new videos or video announcements (coming soon).

Story Time

The Tiempo de Cuentos website was created as an enrichment resource for families and teachers who have students who are interested in listening to fun stories in Spanish or in both Spanish and English. Listening to stories is a great way for students to broaden their vocabulary, improve their listening, literacy, and socioemotional skills while learning about different cultures. Whether students are learning Spanish or English as a second language, there are a number of exciting stories at different reading levels to choose from.
