Principal's Message 1-13-17

Dear East Hills School Community:

I hope everyone had a restful and relaxing break. It has been great to have the students back in the building. While we have certainly moved into the winter months, the activity and excitement our students provide us with brings warmth and abundant energy to our school. As we start a new calendar year, East Hills extends to you and yours many well wishes for a happy and healthy 2017!

Please note that we are continuing to work in preparation for the addition of 4th grade to the East Hills School Community next school year (2017-2018). Our Lead Transition Team was active this past week meeting and helping to lay out the structure for our five sub committees (Physical Space, Logistics, Media Center, Support Programming, and Building Community). There will continue to be updates and opportunities to give input in this process in the weeks and months to come - see the December update below for more information. Another highlight of this week's work was sharing some of the developing plans and ideas with our students. Mrs. Konzen and I were able to meet with about half of the students this week and plan to meet with the rest of the student body soon. It was so much fun and very exciting to have the students think about the new possibilities and opportunities we will have as we create a 4th-8th grade community at our school. There is now a sign up sheet in the main office near Ms. Weaver's desk for students to share their names if they are interested in getting more involved in the transition process.

On Monday, January 16, there is no school. Additionally next week features our eighth-grade play Law and Order: Fairy Tale Unit. On Tuesday, January 17, we have an in-school performance at 9:30 a.m. for our fifth- and sixth-grade students, and on Wednesday, January 18, we have have an in-school performance at 1:30 p.m. for our seventh- and eighth-grade students followed by an evening performance at 7:00 PM for the larger community. See the eNoftify article below for a few final details as the students prepare for the show.
