Weekly Update 05/03/19
Greetings Eastridge Families,
This week is Teacher Appreciation Week. As always, this annual recognition couldn't come a moment too soon.
As someone who spends a lot of time visiting classrooms, I am consistently amazed at the tireless and heroic work of Eastridge teachers and staff. Our teachers and staff deserves a standing ovation every day for their high-quality work.
The Eastridge PTA, Administration, and district will formally show their appreciation for our teachers this week. Families are encouraged to show their appreciation as well. A positive note, email, phone call, etc. can mean a lot to those that work so hard regardless of public recognition.
Have a great week and as always, I thank you for your continued support of Eastridge Elementary!
We love celebrating our students so please make sure they come to school each day. A weekly surprise is given to all students with 96% attendance for the week. Students who attend school regularly have been shown to achieve at higher levels than students who do not have regular attendance. Every school day counts in a child's academic life... a missed school day is a lost opportunity for students to learn. The effects of lost school days build up one absence at a time. Leaving early or coming in late, is a loss of instructional time that cannot be made up.
School Weekly Attendance Average for the week of May 29th - April 3rd: 96.05%
1st Grade: 95.76%
2nd Grade: 94.75%
3rd Grade: 98.57%
4th Grade: 95.89%
SP4 - 100%
