Week of 1/18/16

From Stacy and Carol

We had a wonderful Parent 101/Family Night! We have heard so many great comments from families about how much fun they had! It takes a lot of energy and love create memorable events for our families...and you all did just that. Thank you for showing up, dressing up and having FUN with our families!

Little House on the Praire

We had a wonderful kickoff to our Little House on the Prairie book! We will have vocabulary words from the books as well as trivia questions every few days on the announcements. Our kids are going to love watching our hallways transform week by week!

Ice Machine

Remember the ice machine is for adult hands only.

Chili Cook-Off Basket

Our Eastside PTO's Chili Cook Off is just around the corner! Don't forget to be getting your silent auction basket together! There is a sign up sheet for each teacher to put their "theme" so we don't have too many duplicates! Remember, the money raised from YOUR basket goes to help YOUR classroom! The Chili Cook Off date is being rescheduled due to a conflict with the Father Daughter Dance.

Power Panthers

Our first group of Power Panthers will be honored at the basketball game on Friday. They will be able to hear a pep talk from a student athlete and a coach...and then will be able to see their faces on the big screen at Panther Arena as they run out on the basketball court. We have 3 more groups that will be honored in the coming weeks!

Informal Observations

Informal Observations will begin next week! There are so many great things going on! We are looking forward to observing the awesome learning happening in your classroom!

The Great Kindness Challenge

Eastside will participate in the Great Kindness Challenge for the week of Jan. 25-29. Mrs. Cross will be getting out the details to everyone soon!
