Principal's Message 6-15-18

Dear East Hills School Community:

What a fabulous year it has been!  On Wednesday morning, we were able to capture a whole school photo of our inaugural year as a 4th-8th grade building!  Thank you to Mrs. Konzen for coordinating this great keepsake!



A special thank you to our eighth graders and their families for making this a memorable year!  Wednesday night our 8th Grade Farewell Party was amazing, fun, and tasty! A huge thank you to Mrs. Kevelighan along with a great team of eighth-grade parents and family members for organizing a fantastic night that truly sent our students off in style.

Our eighth grade also did a tremendous job Thursday 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."

4th and 5th Grade Service Squad Helps Our Community

East Hills Service Squad has done lots of projects over the course of the year.  At the beginning of the year they spearheaded a letter drive for our veterans including all of the fourth- and fifth-grade classes.  In the winter, they made scarves, which were donated to a homeless warming center in Pontiac.  Service Squad members also made dog pull toys to donate to an animal rescue center.  In honor of our student Glenn Cabbell, they made activity kits for kids in the hospital.  Lastly, students ended with a bang by going to a nursing home in Southfield to play games and do crafts with the seniors.  We are so proud of the caring and compassionate spirit of our service squad members this school year!

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!
