East Hills Book Swap

This month at East Hills a new tradition began.  The Book Swap.  March is reading month and some parents had the idea to hold a book swap to help celebrate reading month.  Last week students were encouraged to bring up to 5 books, at the 4th to 8th grade reading level, that they could then swap for other books on Monday, March 11th.  Roughly 70 students participated and brought books, and over 250 books were swapped.  This tradition was a fun way to get students to connect over reading, to read more, and to recycle books instead of throwing them away.  We hope that this tradition will continue on for many years and would like to wish everyone a very Happy Reading Month!

Kindergarten Force and Motion Exhibition

Charlotte Du, a kindergartner at Eastover, explains, "Force is either a push or pull.  I like showing my parents how we make orange juice.  We pull the lever up and then push down to squeeze the orange juice out."  Sophia Wright adds, "We made a marble maze with a paper plate. We are pulling and pushing the marble around on the plate to direct the ball into the tubes." Teddy McCoy excitedly shares, "We presented a ton of activities to our parents showing force and motion.  We did a cup and ball toss, marble slides, and slinky demonstration."
