Hello East Hills Families!

How did we get to the LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL!???

We are so proud of our students and so lucky to see them grow and mature over this year!

The report card window is open for the 4th quarter and final grades! Make sure you remind your child to get in any missing assignments, I am sure he/she wants to celebrate in end of year activities with their class without thinking about missing work.

We celebrated the Lamp of Learning recipients last Wednesday night and had an amazing concert on Thursday. It was Mr. Quelet's last concert! We are so sad that Mr. Q is leaving us to retire this year, but we are so grateful for all he has done for us over the 27 years he has taught here at East Hills. He has definitely left his mark and we hope to continue to all of the amazing programs he has started here. We also have another retirement, Mrs. Maurer. She hasn't been here very long, but has worked very well with our English Language Learners.

We will miss you both!

Back Together. Better Connected and Stronger than Ever.

Mr. Horvath, Mr. Tannous and Mrs. Braun

Service Project with Mr. Coyle and student leaders

Mr. Coyle and his students imagined, planned and implemented a terrific fundraiser to donate money to Unicef (for Ukraine).

There was coin collection and counting, wiffle ball games and a winning class enjoying some great pizza from Franks on Rte 191! (Thanks for the great price!).

These student leaders(Hero Lunch Bunch) and Mr. Coyle not only raised over $1000, but also Kayla Poole in his class co-wrote "Ukraine Song" with him!

Please see the lyrics below and enjoy a wonderful video of Mr. Coyle and some students performing it! We are all absolutely amazed by the dedication and talent of these folks!

Charger Pride Expectations and Rewards!

We will continue to utilize our Charger Pride Expectations to recognize and reward positive behaviors and academic achievement. Our Charger Pride Expectations Program is a tiered reinforcement effort that focuses on acknowledging students for good behavior while being Prepared, being Respectful, showing Integrity, showing Determination, and displaying Enthusiasm. Our tiered system has allowed students the opportunity to win numerous prizes, brunches, lunch rewards, trips, and activities. Donations of prizes to help promote this program are welcomed whenever possible. We sincerely thank the many parents, community members, and local businesses who have supported our efforts in this program. Please feel free to contact the school if you would be willing to help us in this endeavor.

2021-2022 East Hills Middle School THEME!

Our school theme last year was Together. Connected. Strong! This year we will be continuing with a similar theme as we return to what will hopefully be a school year similar to what we have always been accustomed to. The theme for this school year will be Back Together. Better Connected. Stronger Than Ever!
