Principal's Message 6-14-19 Have a great SUMMER!

Dear East Hills School Community:

What a fabulous year it has been!  A special thank you to our eighth graders and their families for making this a memorable year!  Yesterday's (Thursday, June 13) 8th Grade Farewell Party was amazing, fun, and tasty! A huge thank you to Mrs. Abdelfatah and Mrs. Kissoondial along with a great team of volunteers for organizing a fantastic night that truly sent our students off in style.

Our eighth grade also did a tremendous job today (Friday, June 14) at their recognition assembly. We are so proud of all of their efforts while at East Hills. They are a talented group, who have left a powerful legacy, and we look forward to following them as they go on to do so many great things!

Also thank you to both Ms. Weaver and Mrs. Bridges in the main office for all their help "keeping the ship afloat" for another year.  We could not have done it without them!

As we head off in different directions for the summer, please take time to enjoy your children.  If there is anything we can do to help over the summer, please do not hesitate to contact us.

HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!

In honor of the upcoming Father's Day . . . "My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me."

East Hills Summer Learning Resources

Dear East Hills Families,

As we near the end of the school year, we wanted to take a moment to say how proud we are of the work your children have put into their learning! With summer quickly approaching, we can sense the excitement in our students.  Summer break is a wonderful time to rest, rejuvenate, travel and spend time with family.

To help encourage learning over the summer, we have put together a Padlet of summer learning resources.  It includes reading ideas and activities, math skills-builders, tutorials and games to help our students maintain and build upon the knowledge they have developed this year. There is also a link to the Bloomfield Township Library for families to participate in the free summer reading program offered.  We encourage your children to read and practice math skills over the summer to prepare them for another successful school year!

We hope you are having a wonderful summer. We wanted to take this opportunity to inform families of upcoming changes to counseling staff caseloads for the 2019-2020 school year. 

Mrs. Amanda Gohl will be leaving us to join the counseling team at Bloomfield Hills Middle School beginning in August. Mrs. Gohl has done a great job at BHHS since arriving last August and we wish her continued success at BHMS.

We are pleased to announce Mr. Brian Fitzgerald, former BHMS Assistant Principal, will be taking over counseling responsibilities for Mrs. Gohl starting in August. Mr. Fitzgerald initially began his career in the district as a counselor before becoming an Assistant Principal. He brings a wealth of knowledge and looks forward to meeting and supporting your student going forward.
