It's May!

As we enter the last full month of this school year, there is so much going on at Eastern Heights! We are finishing the year strong with events, concerts, trips, and celebrations throughout the month. Don't miss out on Friday's Bike and Roll to School or next week's International Festival. These are both first time events at Heights, and are shaping up to be really amazing activities! Don't miss out! As always, please reach out to our office if you have questions.
