Principal's Message 9-20-19

Dear East Hills School Community:

Over the last two weeks of summer, East Hills has been quite a busy place. While student registration and the return of teachers often signal the start of a new school year, it is the first day of school that always holds an extra special place as an annual rite of passage for a school community.  In particular, we are very much looking forward to welcoming our new students - especially our new fourth-grade students. As we head into Tuesday morning, please enjoy the remaining days of summer and know that our faculty and staff are eagerly waiting to begin the school year with you.

"Education in not preparation for life: education is life itself."
-John Dewey

Club Information

Each year, East Hills offers students a number of clubs for student participation. The clubs typically begin in early October.  In late September, we will offer an explanation of the clubs and sign-up sheets online for families and during upcoming lunches for students, and once we know which clubs the students are interested in, the clubs will begin to meet. Students should listen to both announcements during the lunch hour, as well as at the end of the day over the PA for club information.

In the past, some East Hills clubs have been Art Club, Basketball Club, Chess Club, Crocheting Club, Fiddle Club, Foods with Friends, Games Club (checkers, Connect 4, chess, etc.), Jazz Band, Kids Cuisine Club, Learning Lab, Lego Club, Model UN - Debate Club, Movie Makers Club, Math Pentathlon, Newspaper Club, Science Olympiad, Elementary Service Squad, Signing with Friends, Sports Sampler Club, Yoga Club and more!  Clubs meet either before school (7:00 a.m.-8:00 a.m.) or right after school (3:05 p.m.-4:00 p.m. or so). Please consider having your students join a club at East Hills! It will make their experience all the better by further connecting with students and the larger school community.

East Hills Service as Action Form

Through Service as Action experiences in the classroom, throughout the school, and within the community, East Hills students will enhance their skills of collaboration, perseverance, initiative, understanding and engagement. Students should complete a Service as Action form to reflect on each Service as Action experience in which they participate. 

East Hills is a Nut-Restricted School
Please remember that nuts of all kinds are restricted at East Hills because of students with severe and life-threatening allergies. The restriction is in effect in the entire building and at all times, including the school day, after school, evenings and weekends.

East Hills Middle School became a nut-restricted school in January of 2013. As a result, please carefully read and review all food packaging prior to sending food items to school. For further information on food allergies, consult www.foodallergy.org. We appreciate in advance your full cooperation.
