A Note from Mrs. Wilson

Hello families!


Last week was anything but typical. We weathered some pretty crazy temperatures and a bit of snow, causing some weather related delays and closures. We missed some of the kiddos, realizing that some families chose to keep them home a couple of days. We are looking forward to seeing everyone on Monday and getting back to our regular schedule!


Given that the weather cut into our instructional time last week, we will be continuing during Community Time this week working on those problem solving skills. Students will be working in their classrooms on strategies for solving social problems, as well as spending some time on community/ team building activities.


It is my hope that Eastridge is a place that both you and your child(ren) find a sense of connectedness and community, and we have some great opportunities coming up for you and/ or your child(ren) to come enjoy some time together here at school and in the community. Upcoming events include the Sweetheart Dance, Roller Cave skating parties, as well as meeting up for breakfast at McDonald's. We can't wait to see you there!



Have a great week!

Noel Wilson, Dean of Students
