October Blessings

We are in the midst of our annual Red Ribbon Week and recently spent a day dedicated to showing our character and saying "NO" to drugs! Our East students are spending the week showing their dedication to staying drug free by wearing red, dreaming big and wearing their pajamas, dressing like a character to show we have character, wearing their favorite team gear, and wearing all of their purple to show their Bobcat Pride.

October also brought a focus on our leadership habits and working to meet our campus and individual goals! We celebrated with our students with our behavior rewards, dance parties on morning announcements and a school-wide assembly.

During this month, we also celebrated our annual Western Days celebration and enjoyed a fun day filled with a petting zoo, cloggers, and many other fun activities! Our Specials Team outdid themselves and we were blessed with a fun and memorable day!

Our PTA outdid themselves with our Dinosaur George experience. This was a fabulous educational day for all of our learners.

Please take a moment to click on the pictures below to catch a glimpse of our month.

The mayor of Longview invited elementary students from Hallsville to provide feedback about what they think about our community. Our students were wonderful representatives of East and did a great job making us proud!

Your children fill our halls with joy every day and we are so grateful that you choose East Elementary for their education. We look forward to finishing out this semester strong and watching your students achieve the goals that they have set for themselves!
