We Are So Grateful for You!

Our Fall Family night included over 1000 students and their families! This is the largest turnout in our East History (56% of our families) and we loved having so many of you here with us! It is important to us that our events are focused on building stronger relationships with our families and deepening understanding of our goals for the year. We hope that you gained a deeper understanding of your child's educational goals for the year and enjoyed your time here with our East staff and other families. If you weren't able to join us, you were missed. Please contact your child's teacher to receive copies of the presentation and handouts we distributed on this night.


Monthly newsletters will continue to come your way along with emails, Facebook posts and Skylert phone calls to keep you informed about our happenings at East this year. Please be sure to check your child's folder each evening for updates about their behavior and graded papers/notes to help you stay informed.

We are so grateful that you have chosen Hallsville ISD for your child's education and we look forward to continuing to get to know your families better and to get to be an instrumental part of your child's growth and education.

P.T.A. at East

October is a very exciting month for our East Elementary PTA! We are starting off the month selling fun Halloween "Boo's" and having a Western General Store on Western Day. We are so excited about the Watch DOGS launch on October 9th. Our spirit store will be extra special for Homecoming on October 12th! We can't wait for Dinosaur George to come to our school on October 26th. This is the largest traveling natural history museum in North America and it is coming to our school!! The museum will be open from 5 pm to 7 pm for our community to enjoy free of charge thanks to our awesome sponsors.
