Eastside: The Greatest School

"No one ever made a difference by being like everyone else."

Week of May 13th

Eastside Mission & Vision

Our mission is to build a strong educational foundation while meeting the unique needs of our students.

Working in partnership with the community, Eastside Elementary will provide all students:

  • A collaborative team of professionals who are committed to improve their practices, so that all students learn at high levels

  • A safe, positive, and inviting learning environment

  • An engaging and challenging curriculum focused on essential academics and life skills

  • Individualized and timely support that provides students with what they need to succeed

* Take the EES Staff Survey if you haven't yet. We have had 10 responses so far. This information will be so helpful in planning next year to be the best one yet. https://forms.gle/RU2WSwHTmUhHyeqC6


* When working on your inventory, you will only list the items purchased with school money. You are more than welcome to create your own personal inventory on your own spreadsheet or document. Make sure you have a line on the school inventory that includes Solution Tree professional text $1000.

* SIT will meet throughout the week!

***All SIT docs must be updated with end of year data! This is for any staff member that works with them.
