It's a 3 day weekend and you have definitely earned an extra day! Take time to relax, rejuvenate and recharge this long weekend!


I am so thankful for each of you!

Growth Mindset

How can the subtle difference in the way we praise students make a difference???

Deeper Data

Do you have a way to keep up with all the ways in which you are getting to know your students interests, passions and dislikes? You are so good at getting to know your kids...the article below gives an idea of how you might keep track of this valuable "data"

Ice Cream Social

*Ice Cream Social/Parent Night is Thursday, September 10th.

The schedule is

5:00- Public Meeting in the Media Center

5:30-6:00- Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades

6:15-6:45- 3rd and 4th grades


Ice Cream will be served from 5-7 p.m. or until we run out! Thank you for signing up to help our PTO scoop ice cream!

Grandparents Day

*Grandparents Day is scheduled for September 24 for last names beginning A-L and September 25 for last names beginning M-Z.

Team Jaycee

Eastside will have another team this year in the FSM5K on Saturday October 10th at 9 a.m. to benefit one of our ES families that are battling cancer...Jaycee O'Saille in 3rd grade. She just celebrated her 2 year Cancer-versary!


Mrs. Cross will put registration forms in your boxes. Registration forms will be available to students that request them in the counseling office or the media center. We will make a school wide announcement next week

Classroom Teachers

*Please add a “Ways to Help Your Child” section to your parent newsletters. This could include websites, helpful hints, etc. Let’s help them, help us! Don’t forget to put a copy in my hot pocket.


*Great job sending out newsletters! Something to think about....when emailing parents your newsletter, you may want to put it in pdf form. That way parents don't have to completely download the file (plus they won't be able to change it).


*No PLC meeting this week so you can get ready for Parent Night!


*Please encourage your parents to go to Hallway Hero Training on September 14th at 6 p.m.


*Fall 2015 Parent & Teacher Conferences 2:45 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

As we discussed in PLCs, be thinking about which conferences you need more time for and start to plan accordingly.

Monday, October 19th District Dismissal at 2:15 p.m.

Tuesday, October 20th Dismissal at 2:15 p.m.

Thursday, October 22nd District Dismissal at 2:15 p.m.
