A Little Fall Break

Students are out of school Monday, October 7, and Tuesday, October 8; but, we will be here for the benefit of your child. Tuesday, October 8, is Teacher and Parent Conference Day. If you would like to meet with your child's teacher but haven't yet made an appointment, don't panic. Simply send an email request to the teacher, and we will get you scheduled. #TeamTuesday

Lunch on the Lawn Parent Picnic

October is Parent Visitation Month in Alabama schools. We have enjoyed seeing so many of you having lunch with your child this year and hope that you will continue to visit. In the hopes of making you feel at home, we are having our 14th Annual Parent Picnic Day on Friday, October 18. On this day, you are welcome to come to East during your child’s lunchtime and have an old-fashioned picnic style lunch on the lawn. Bring blankets and chairs, picnic baskets, and plenty of food. If you prefer, CNP will be grilling hotdogs & hamburgers, with all the fixings, in the CubCat Café. Bring a lunch, buy a lunch: either way, have lunch with us on the lawn.
