Eastridge Elementary School May 1, 2020
Greetings Eastridge Families!
Indiana has announced the launch of a Call-and-Learn Hotline for students to use Monday through Friday, 1-5 p.m., that will be operated by members of the Indiana Retired Teachers Association (IRTA). Students can call 1-877-45-study M-F from 1-5 pm for additional support with remote learning.
There have been a few adjustments made to our food outreach program starting the week of May 4th. We will continue on Tuesdays and Fridays from 11-1 at 11 locations. Renaissance School, located at 30th and Post Road will be a new site and will replace Hawthorne Elementary. Wednesdays will continue to be 5:30 - 7 at 2 locations. Lakeside Elementary and now our Moorhead location at 8400 East Tenth Street will be a new site. If you have needs beyond what is being offered, please call or email our hotline at 317-869-4308 or MSDWarrenOutreach@warren.k12.in.us.
Also, just a reminder that next week is Teacher Appreciation week! I encourage all students to show their appreciation by drawing a picture, making a video, or calling their teacher to make them feel special. Our PTA team is collecting those pictures and videos to create video project to share with teachers. Please help us make the video amazing by dropping your child's picture holding a sign or video of your child saying great things about their teacher to email@example.com.
Lastly, registration for Kindergarten and Preschool in Warren Township begins on Monday, May 4th. There will be a live webinar May 4th at 7 pm. Principals and teachers will present information about Kindergarten and Preschool programs in Warren, demonstrate information about how to register online, and conduct a live question & answer session with audience members. Children must be age 5 on or before September 1 to register for Kindergarten and age 3 on or before September 1 to register for Preschool."
I hope that you and your family have a great weekend and as always, I thank you for your continued support of Eastridge Elementary
