Dear East Hills School Community:
We had a very busy week highlighted by our annual Move-Up Day. Move-Up Day is so much fun and a wonderful tradition for our students. Having our incoming fifth-grade students join us for the day brings with it all the excitement and energy of a new school year. Move-Up Day also provides the rest of our students time to get to know the faculty that will be working with them next school year and supports our eighth-grade students as they spend the morning at the high school. We are also hosting a separate, special Move-Up Day for our incoming fourth-grade on June 2. See the article below for more details. Thursday was also a special day for our eighth graders as we were able to enjoy the annual eighth-grade breakfast together. Thank you to our PTO and eighth-grade families for organizing the delicious breakfast - a good time was had by all.
This past Wednesday, we hosted - our last Winners' Circle of the year. I want to thank Mr. Massucci personally for organizing all of this year's Winners' Circle speakers who shared such valuable insights with our students. Also thank you to Vickie Chandler from our district's Digital Media Services for taping these great talks. Our final Winners' Circle meeting on May 24 featured Bloomfield Hills Schools high school students. Click here to check out the powerful advice they shared with our students. As Mr. Massucci shared, "they could have spoken for another hour - it was that good." We are so blessed to work with great students and families! Thank you!
I would be remiss if I didn't mention Tuesday's wonderful, all-grade level choir concert. Thank you to Mr. Schumacher for his direction of so many different groups and grade levels of singers!
I want to wish you a safe and restful Memorial Day Weekend! We are in the home stretch of the school year. Please take time this weekend to relax so you are ready for the annual sprint to the finish!
