Eastern Heights Elementary School, November 2023
Hello Eastern Heights Families~
It's hard to believe but the 2nd Quarter is underway! Thank you so much for coming to conferences on the 26th and the 2nd. The staff of Eastern Heights appreciates your investment in your student's education and your partnership with us. If you were unable to come to conferences, please reach out to your child's teacher via phone or email. We are always happy to discuss their progress with you.
Earlier this fall, a team of staff members from our building applied for and went through the interview process for the opportunity to bring Disney Musicals in Schools to Eastern Heights Elementary. We are incredibly excited and happy to announce that we were selected as one of only 4 schools to be accepted into the 2023-24 program! We have a new Elementary Drama Club and through the support of Disney & Playhouse Square, will be putting on 101 Dalmations Kids! Stay tuned for more information.

Thank you for following our campus traffic rules and helping us keep our students & staff at arrival and dismissal. A few reminders:
- Please use crosswalks when walking your children to & from the building
- Please do not park in the pickup lane during drop off or dismissal; this will help the flow of traffic move smoothly
- Cars should make only 1 lane of traffic on the campus (inside lane closest to the building); do not pull out and pass cars that are in the pick-up lane
- Drop-off & pickup your student using the spaces between the 2 orange cones directly in front of the building
Thank you for helping us make drop-off & pickup safety the #1 priority!
