Principal's Message
Dear Parents and Guardians:
Welcome Back to East Elementary School! 
We are ready to start a great year of adventures in learning because LEARNING IS THE GREATEST SHOW! This is our theme for the 2019-2020 school year here at East, so look for the unique ways this is spot-lighted throughout our school building and school year!
Mark your calendar to attend this year's Open House event on Monday, August 19th from 6:00 - 7:30pm at East Elementary. Bring your school supplies, meet your student's teacher, stop by the photo booth, grab some popcorn, cotton candy and snow cones, and enjoy FOUR different bounce houses on the front lawn!
You may have noticed numerous projects taking place at East over the summer. We are all so excited to show off all that has been done! A huge shout-out to all of the staff that worked to make these projects happen! Many of our teachers took time out of their summers to paint the restroom walls and stalls - and WOW! does it make a difference! Another project you may notice is the drop-ceiling in the gym, which refreshes the look of that large space. To better organize the limited space available at this 111 year old building, cabinets and shelving were constructed to accomodate the array of supplies. The last project I would like to show off is the completion of the sidewalk in front of East.
We are so appreciative of the new life that all of these projects have given to this old building! Please take a tour to check all of these imporvements during Open House!
Thank you to all who are helping perpare for the new school year. Your commitment to insure that East Elementary remains a celebrated and sucessful school is awe-inspiring. I eagerly look forward to greeting students and families again. It remains an honor and privilege to servve as your principal. Please stop by and say hello at Open House on Monday, August 19th from 6:00 - 7:30pm. Together, I know we will make LEARNING THE GREATEST SHOW!
