Dear East Hills School Community,
Just a short while ago, we welcomed back our fifth-grade students after three fun days at Camp Copneconic (Fenton, MI). Our students truly enjoyed their time learning, playing, team building, and challenging themselves in several physical and mental tasks. Thank you to our fifth-grade staff and all the parents, who organized, chaperoned, and supported this great experience. As you might imagine, we do have a few specific lost-and-found items from camp. If your camper (student) lost an item, please check with the main office on Monday.
Saturday, October 22 is the Bloomfield Hills Schools Make a Difference Day with a service project taking place at Bloomfield Hills High School from 9:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.. This year's Make a Difference Day focus is a service project in support of Humble Designs. Humble Designs is a metro-Detroit based nonprofit organization helping families transitioning out of homeless shelters by providing furnishings and design services. A special thank you to Lisa Bower, the East Hills PTO, and our students and families for all of their efforts for this great cause.
Please note: next week kicks off Red Ribbon Week (Spirit Week) with six days of "spirited" celebration - see the broadcast message below for all the details on dressing up!
"In order to carry a positive action we must develop here a positive vision."
