Spring has Sprung!

March is here and we all know that from this point on our year will fly! It has been our extreme honor to partner with you this school year to see your child grow physically, socially, and academically. It brings such joy to get to see them achieve so much in such a short time.

The remainder of our year will be packed with many events and benchmarks to measure progress. Please take a look at the remainder of the newsletter and plan with us as we work together to make sure your child has a successful year at East.

Thank you again for allowing us to be a part of your child's education. We hope to see you around campus this spring!

U.I.L. - District Meet on March 4th!

The U.I.L. Academic Program is designed to enrich student learning and provide students with a competitive opportunity. Some of our students in 2nd and 3rd grades have been selected to serve on one of our East academic teams and will be competing next Friday, February 10th for a final place on one of our Hallsville Elementary Teams. These teams will then participate in the district meet in Pine Tree on March 4th. We are excited for these students and know they will represent Hallsville well! Thank you to our wonderful coaches that are working closely with our students to help them be successful!
