East Hills School Community:
We had a great week! On Tuesday morning, Judge Kimberly Small of the 48th District Court held a "Court In School" session with real defendants, lawyers, and of course a real judge. The program was a powerful real world learning opportunity where our eighth-grade students were able to observe in very concrete ways the significance of making good choices. After court was adjourned, Judge Small did a wonderful job speaking with our students stressing the importance of being a critical thinker and the value of making positive contributions to society. Thank you, Judge Small, for holding court at East Hills, and a special thank you to Mrs. Reamer for organizing all the behind-the-scenes logistics.
This week also featured a second Hat Day to help fundraise to purchase a "Buddy Bench" to go with our new elementary play structure. Thank you to Liam Mowat and Owen Murray, two fifth-grade students, for bringing the idea forward - an idea that began as part of one of their 5th Grade Genius Hour Projects. Thanks to all the students and families that donated a dollar or more to help offset the cost for our Buddy Bench!
