Heights Happenings

Eastern Heights Elementary School, December 2021

Dear Eastern Heights Elementary Family,

As we conclude 2021, we would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff, students, and parents for their continued support, and express our heartfelt gratitude to all who help make Eastern Heights an amazing place to be.


Just a few reminders:


  • Please make sure that your student is remembering to bring a clean mask with them each day, it is a good idea to give them a backup in their book bag too.
  • Please encourage your student to exemplify the "3 Bees"- ask your student about this, they will be happy to tell you all about them!
  • Thank you for helping us keep drop off and arrival running smoothly, we appreciate you! We understand that this takes time, and you will see more important reminders below.


In the spirit of the season we hope you take this opportunity to spend some much deserved quality time with your family as you reflect on all that you and your child have accomplished this year. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at any time.


Your Partner in Education,

Mrs. Barwacz

Go Pioneers!

Update from Mrs. Roth, our Book Fair Coordinator

The first book fair for Eastern Heights Elementary was very successful! Thank you to all of the parent volunteers for volunteering to come and work at the fair. I could not have done it without your help. We had a total of $10,596.72 in sales and earned $5298.31 in profit dollars for the school. WOW!! We are planning a BOGO book fair for May 31-June 3, 2022 - more information will come in the new year!

Thank you again for all of your help and support!

Happy reading!
