Dear East Hills School Community:
What a great week at East Hills! On Wednesday, Feb. 15, our fifth-grade students and staff were able to enjoy a fun day at the Detroit Zoo. What an amazing opportunity to see the animals on a colder day active in ways you might not be able to see during other months of the year. Thank you to our staff and family volunteers for supporting this memorable field trip! Also our eighth-grade families were able to participate in the Bloomfield Hills High School 9th Grade Parent Orientation this week as well. I was there as a fellow parent. What an impressive facility and staff! I just can't believe that my oldest is heading off to high school next year. Just want to slow it all down sometimes . . . which reminds me to share that tonight is Black Hawk Fever at the high school, a special event featuring the boys high school basketball team. I plan to catch some of the game myself.
I am very proud of our student leadership council for organizing a successful change drive in support of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. It is so important that our students take an active role raising awareness for and taking action in support of things greater than themselves. Thank you to all who donated!
Also please take some time to review the Friday broadcast below. Next week features our February Winners' Circle with Candace Hayden as our speaker . . . so exciting to have her! Also on Wednesday, February 22, we have a special clinic and concert put on and for our 7th and 8th Grade Band and Orchestra.
If interested, don't forget to sign up for the Science Fair. The due date is today! There are also important announcements and information about ordering an East Hills Yearbook (due Feb. 24), a special PTO Parents' Night Out Trivia Night (March 3), and a SAVE the DATE reminder for our All Grade Level Activity Afternoon on March 10.
There are so many exciting things happening at East Hills, but with that said, please take some time to enjoy your children this weekend. It looks like we are in for a lovely couple of warm spring-like days! Enjoy!
