Eastside Elementary

Superheroes in Training!

From Mrs. Allen

We have an exciting week this week! Grandparents Day is such a fun couple of days! We can't wait to see everyone's smiling faces!

#1 for Summer Reading Minutes

Have you heard the good news?? Eastside students read the MOST minutes this summer in the state of Arkansas!!! We are super proud of this amazing accomplishment! A big THANK YOU to all of you for reading with your child and for logging those minutes! Readers are LEADERS!


The bookfair is open this week! It is open each day from 7:30-4:00. On Tuesday, the bookfair will have extended hours from 7:30-6:00. You are also welcome to shop with your student before/after school. Students may also bring money to school to purchase items. We ask that you send any money for bookfair in a sealed envelope with your child's name on it so that in the event that it is lost, we can return it to its rightful owner! Thank you for your help with this!

Parental Involvement Survey

At Eastside, we know it takes teamwork between students, staff and families to make an amazing school! We want to make sure we are communicating with you in the best possible way. Please take this short survey so that we can best serve you!

Special Door Openers

Our students were surprised on Friday when they were greeted by several Eastside alumni who are currently CJHN students and athletes! It was a great way to start the day! Thank you to Coach Spencer for helping with this special surprise!
