We Are Thankful for You!

Our Fall Family night included over 1000 students and their families! This is the largest turnout in our East History and we loved having so many of you here with us! It is important to us that our events are focused on building stronger relationships with our families and deepening understanding of our goals for the year. We hope that you gained a deeper understanding of your child's educational goals for the year and enjoyed your time here with our East staff and other families. If you weren't able to join us, you were missed. Please contact your child's teacher to receive copies of the presentation and handouts we distributed on this night.

Monthly newsletters will continue to come your way along with emails and Skylert phone calls to keep you informed about our happenings at East this year. Please be sure to check your child's folder each evening for updates about their behavior and graded papers/notes to help you stay informed.

We are so grateful that you have chosen Hallsville ISD for your child's education and we look forward to continuing to get to know your families better and to get to be an instrumental part of your child's growth and education.

P.T.A. at East

We hosted an initial meeting with a small parent group that is interested in being a part of our campus based parent teacher association. We will be meeting again soon to form our board and appoint officers. Please be on the lookout for more information about volunteer opportunities and PTA membership. We are excited about what this can and will mean for our students, staff, and families!
