East Elementary Design Team

Leadership Retreat for the 2015-2016 School Year


We hope you have had a wonderful, relaxing, amazing summer. And although we still have a quite a few weeks until we see our building filled with children, the planning is well under way. As teacher leaders, we are excited to invite you to join us for 2 days of intense planning and a little fun to launch our first ever East Elementary Design Team. We plan to spend July 28th and 29th setting goals, strengthening our leadership muscles, and building relationships. We can't wait to see you!
