Thanks to everyone for taking part in our hat day Friday. Our students raised almost $700 for the Allan family. Way to make a difference!

Reminder!!! Back to School Night

Back to School Night is Tuesday, August 8th from 6-8. For our families with multiple children at East, we will once again offer a meet and greet from 5-30-6:00. This will allow you to see teachers you would otherwise miss.

The format for the night is a "A Day in the Life of Your Student." You will be provided a copy of your child's schedule which you will follow that night (your student will bring a hand written copy home on August 7th) . You will spend 14 minutes in each class with 5 minute passing periods between each period.
