Mustang Memo

Here's what's happening at East Meadows....

Countdown to August 17th

The countdown is on to the first day of school and we couldn't be more excited to welcome your students back for the 2022-2023 school year! We are so grateful to our amazing custodial crew for cleaning, organizing and preparing the school over the summer. They have also installed new air purification systems in every classroom which will keep each room more safe and sanitary. We are so appreciative of their efforts.


Our teachers will return to work on Thursday, August 11th to attend opening meetings and begin putting the finishing touches on their classrooms.


Our summer office hours (Monday - Thursday 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM) will end this Friday. On Monday, August 8th we will return to our regular office hours of 8:00 am - 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday.


This newsletter has all the information you need to prepare for the upcoming first weeks of school. As always, please reach out with any questions or feedback!


Enjoy the last weeks of summer break!

Reminder to Pay Donations

We wanted to send a reminder about paying donations for the coming year. To date, our donations are significantly down and we understand that our new system isn't as user friendly or convenient as it was in years past.


The school asks parents for a $25 donation per child to cover the cost of all school supplies, field trips, assemblies, birthday gifts, Mustang Pride rewards, student of the month awards, school activities and more! Most importantly, we give a portion of the donation money to grade level teams to cover additional field trips, supplies and materials. The donation money goes directly to your student and we will never ask you to send additional money for supplies or field trips.


If you were unable to pay or simply forgot, you can still log on to your iCampus account, click on "FEES" and pay the donation. If you would like to give more than the suggested $25, click directly in the amount window and type in the amount you would like to donate instead.


Another great option is to bring a check or cash directly to the office at our Open House and Mrs. Haskell will print a receipt for your records. Thank you so much for helping support our teachers and your students so we can continue the many fun rewards and activities we sponsor throughout the year.
