Gifting Teachers for the Holiday

Here at Eastwood we know that we have AMAZING teachers and we appreciate all their hard work they have done to make virtual learning as smooth and manageable as possible.

If you would like to show your appreciation with a holiday gift, for safety and convenience it is best to send an electronic gift card and/or message via school communications. Physical gifts are not encouraged as many teachers are not on campus to receive them.This is of course optional.

The Eastwood PTA wishes you all a safe, healthy & wonderful Winter Break!

Picture Days have been postponed

Due to the "Safer At Home Order", the district has advised that all events that are not essential to student's learning be postponed at this time.

As we schedule a new date after the new year, more details will be forth coming.

It has been an honor to be on the Eastwood PTA and serve as the VP of Communications. As some of you already know, my family is moving as I have been offered a teaching position out of state.
