We Love Our East Family!

Our campus is back in full swing and we are excited to share some upcoming events for our spring semester. Our students just completed their MOY DRA testing to measure their growth in reading and we are thrilled with the progress they have made. This information will be shared with you soon and you will have the opportunity to schedule a face to face conference with their teachers to discuss your individual child on our February 17th conference day. Please check out the rest of our February newsletter for important upcoming dates and information. Thank you again for allowing us to be a part of your child's education. We hope to see you around campus this spring!

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!
