Happy Fall Y'All!

Dear Eastern Heights Elementary Family,


Welcome fall! This is such a fun season full of cooler weather, shorter days, sweaters, apple picking, falling leaves and pumpkin spice everything!


Beginning this month we will begin many of our intervention groups for our students. This is a time where teachers will work with students to provide specific support to help your child become even more successful in their current grade. If you ever have a concern about your child's progress please reach out to your child's teacher. We will be having Fall Conferences in November. Your child's teacher will reach out to you soon to begin scheduling these conferences. Please note that we will offer a few different options for parents this year: In person conferences, virtual and phone conference.


Just a few reminders:


  • Please encourage your student to exemplify the "3 Bees"- ask your student about this, they will be happy to tell you all about them!
  • Thank you for helping us keep drop off and arrival running smoothly, we appreciate you! We understand that this takes time, and you will see more important reminders below.


If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact myself or Mr. Bruner at any time. We look forward to seeing and meeting many of you at our family fun night on October 27th here at Heights!


Your Partner in Education,

Mrs. Barwacz

Go Pioneers!

  • Please have your child load and unload on the curbside of the school (passenger side of car) for your child's safety.
