September 5th - 16th

Here's what's happening at East Meadows!

Hello amazing East Meadows parents! I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend and were able to beat the heat!

I am having so much fun getting to know all of the students and I'm learning more names every day. The highlight of last week was having a huge group of 1st and 2nd grade students serenade me with the school song during lunch recess. It was the BEST!

This past week, we completed a variety of assessments that will help our teachers plan instruction to ensure each child is getting exactly what they need to be successful. Many thanks to our teacher and technician teams who've worked to complete these assessments quickly so we can start our interventions early this year.

We are excited about the great response we've had for our School Community Council election which had been going on this week. The election will close today, Tuesday, September 6th at 6:00 PM, so be sure to vote if you haven't already! CLICK HERE TO ACCESS THE BALLOT

We are currently looking for a parent who would be willing to lead a committee for our REFLECTIONS art contest. We don't want our students to miss out on this awesome opportunity to be recognized for their artistic talents. Please email Mrs. Jordan or Alyssa Haskell, the PTA president, if you would be interested in taking the lead.

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Mrs. Jordan

Take Home Library Starts This Week

Our Take Home Library program will begin this week. Students in Kindergarten through 2nd grade will be bringing home TWO books each night. One book will be a skill-based book your child should be able to read on their own. The other will be a "just for fun" book you can read together with your child. Students should return their books each day in the provided folder.

Watch for more information coming home later this week.

Reminder to Pay Donations

We want to send out another quick reminder to please pay the $25 per student donation if you haven't already. Our donations have been down this year which has impacted the amount we have been been able to give our teacher teams for field trips and activities. We can take donations any time during the year using the following methods:

1) Log in to your iCampus account. Click on "Fees" and chose the donation option.

2) Bring a check or cash into the front office and Mrs. Haskell will print a receipt for you.


Bikes & Scooters at School

Students who are riding bikes and scooters to school should plan to use the bike racks outside the school. Students should not bring or ride bikes and scooters inside the school. We encourage students to lock their bikes with a bike lock if possible. Students will be asked to walk their bike to the end of school property before jumping on to ride in order to keep everyone safe. Thanks for helping us enforce these safety rules!
