Dear East Hills School Community:
This week we began our final preparations for the annual eighth-grade trip to Washington D.C. On Monday, April 25, Mr. Massucci and I met with families reviewing details for this year's trip. The trip for DC leaves early on Wednesday, May 4 (5:30 AM) and returns late Friday, May 6 (possibly very early Saturday morning). Read below regarding important trip information and how to stay connected regarding the trip through Remind 101 and the East Hills Twitter account @EastHills5_8
East Hills administration, counselors, teachers, and staff also had the pleasure this week of meeting with several families during Parent-Teacher Conferences. If you missed conferences or were unable to speak with all your child's teachers during conferences, please do not hesitate to contact them or the main office with any questions you may have.
On behalf of the East Hills staff, I would also like to send out a special thank you for all the wonderful goodies and treats we received this week from our students, families, and the PTO as part of Staff Appreciation Week. We are truly blessed to work and to teach in such an amazing school community with tremendous students and families.
Finally, congratulations to Zeid and Zeina AbouShaar, who each received one of this year's Outstanding Youth Citizenship Awards from Bloomfield Youth Assistance. Way to go, Zeid and Zeina!
