East Elementary: Team East News

Staff Newsletter for 2017-2018, Episode 8


As I looked back at my newsletter from around this time last year, I was reminded of a simple question I wish I had the opportunity to ask all of you more often... How are you doing? I know this time of year is very busy both professionally and personally. I pray this long weekend provided you with the opportunity to catch your breath and reset your focus on what is ahead. Your dedication for your work, for the families we serve, and for each other continues to amaze me. I know we will finish the year as strong as we began. I can't wait to look back and see how far we have all come - with our professional and our personal goals. You all have much to be proud of!

We look forward to making wonderful end of year memories with all of you and our students! As always, we feel so blessed to serve with all of you!

Love you,

Melissa and Ashley
