Holiday Wishes and Blessings!

It is truly unbelievable to think that the month of November has quickly flown by and we are well on our way to completing half of our school year. Our students are accomplishing their individual, classroom, and campus goals and we are having an amazing year! Our teachers are busy spending time each week learning together as teams and sharing their excitement for learning with their students as they carry out the plans they are creating to help each child learn and grow.

My wish for this newsletter is to be able to convey to each of our families how blessed Ashley and I are to work with a staff that is so committed to meeting the needs of our students and our East families. I have seen this staff come together many times over the course of this fall to extend a helping hand to families and staff members in need and to go well beyond the scope of what they've been hired to do to love on your children. East is truly a special place and we are grateful that you trust your children with us!

We hope you have a wonderful holiday season with your families. We love your children and look forward to what 2018 has in store for East. Thank you for being a part of our team!
