Updates and Reminders

Eastview Elementary School - December 3, 2015


Thank you all for your help with the bus dismissal. Things seemed to go much better on Wednesday. I would like to spend a few minutes of our faculty meeting on Monday discussing our dismissal procedures. Please take some time to think of ways we can improve this process. I plan to have the agenda for that meeting sent out by the end of the day Thursday. Feel free to send items for the agenda by that time.

We can still use help with next Thursday's activities. Any and all staff members are more than welcome to help with decorating, running stations, and cleanup. It is going to take a group effort to pull this awesome event off for our kiddos!

Santa's shop will be in our library next week. Please see PTO news below for more details.
