Greeting Eastridge Families,

This month, our schoolwide theme is our school as a welcoming place where every student feels like he or she belongs. In our morning announcements we’ll be reminding students to welcome others and act and speak in safe, respectful, and responsible ways. In addition we’ll be reminding students of our school rules.

C = Civility

O = Order

R = Respect

E = Excellence

This month we also began teaching the Second Step program, which includes lessons that support these behaviors.

Support your child at home in welcoming others and acting and speaking in safe, respectful, and responsible ways. Please tell your child’s teacher if you have questions about specific ways you can help your child with these behaviors at home.


Your child(ren) should have brought home Parent/Teacher Conference sign-up forms this past week. Parent/Teacher conferences are scheduled for Tuesday, October 1. Students do not attend school that day. Conferences are being held from 11:00am - 7:00pm on October 1. Please take some time to indicate your time preference for your conference and to return the form to your child’s teacher. These conferences are very important for all parents to attend! These formal conferences are only held one time during the school year, and we hope to meet with every parent of every child during this time. Our goal is 100% participation and meeting with 100% of our parents. During conferences, parents will receive their child’s first quarter report card. Teachers will discuss students academic and behavioral performance, which will allow you to have a better understanding of your child’s strengths and areas of need.


The week of September 23 has been designated as College Go Week and Pink Week. This week allows us to draw attention to students’ post-graduation college and career paths. In addition, through Pink Week we can show our support for the fight against cancer. Look for more information to come home explaining how your students can participate in activities during this week.


Warmest regard,

Mrs. Johnson, Principal

Attendance Matters, Facts Matters, Information Matters

Why attendance matters?


Fact: Missing just 2 days a month means a child misses 10% of the school year.


Our September attendance contest is going strong! Students with perfect attendance for the week receive a small treat each Monday. At the end of September students with 100% perfect attendance for the month of September will be invited to celebrate with EA staff! Thank you parents for your support!!!


Attend today. Achieve tomorrow.
