Student T-Shirts

Order forms for student T-Shirts were sent home in the Green Folder the past two weeks. If your student would like one please click on the appropriate link to submit your order. You will need to send $8.00 cash or check (payable to E.H. Greene School) to your child's homeroom teacher in order to receive your shirt. We would like all students to wear their team shirt for the Walkathon.


If you ordered a t-shirt online, please be sure to send in your payment, marked with your child’s name. We have had to order more Team T-shirts in some sizes. If you paid for a shirt and have not received it yet, please be patient. Our order should be coming in soon. Your child received an email today to let them know if his/her shirt is on order.

PBIS for Parents - Restroom Expectations


We hope you enjoy this week’s video of staff and students demonstrating behavior in the restrooms and at the drinking fountain. This is a time when students must be responsible, respectful and watch out for each other. Remind your child that if there’s a problem in the restroom, telling an adult immediately is the right thing to do! As you can see, our staff had a lot of fun demonstrating the “non-Aviator” behavior. Thanks for your support at home reinforcing Aviator Expectations.
