Weekly EGE Notes

Good afternoon EGE!


This is the last full day of school for this year and the last full day with students for me.


Yesterday was so special as the children and staff sang a song for me at the end of my last Roadrunner assembly. I know I have mentioned it before, but this has been the greatest 15 years in my educational career. East Goshen Elementary (EGE) is a special place, full of wonderful children, amazing teachers/staff and incredible parents. It has been my honor to serve all of you each day. This week has, and will continue to be, very emotional for me. I sincerely love(d) being the Principal of EGE and I will miss you all. This is truly a family and one that I will never fully leave. This family is built by all of you and I trust that all of you will make sure that EGE stays a strong family for years to come!


Take time each day to tell the people in your family that you LOVE them. Sometimes that is with words, but most of the time it is with your actions - the smile, the hug, the wink of an eye, reading with them, playing with them or just sitting around the kitchen table talking about their lives! Family first!


Thanks for being part of my Family!


Make it a great LIFE!

HSA News and Information

From the HSA … DUNK TANK SUCCESS

Thanks to all the volunteers, teachers and staff who helped us raise $563.50 to help send some of our students to East Goshen Rec Camp! Special shout out to our Dunkees: Mr. Pursell, Mrs. Parkinson, Ms. Carter, Mrs. Collins and, of course, Mr. Brown!


GARDEN UPDATES

We need families to stop by the garden over the summer to fill the bird feeders, water plants, and to make sure the courtyard is in tip top shape. The building will be open during the week, so you will be able to access the garden from the front door. If you sign up for a week over the summer, we envision you having to stop by two or three times during your week and spending 15-30 minutes per visit. Please sign up HERE!
