Principal's Message 5-20-2022

Dear East Hills School Community:

We had a great week headlined by our eighth-grade trip to Washington DC.  It was amazing to have the opportunity to once again take our students on this trip - a powerful reminder to not take things for granted and to enjoy the moments we have together.  I want to send out a special thank you to Mr. Massucci for organizing another special trip full of learning, memories, and laughs.  I also want to thank the faculty and staff chaperones (Mrs. Marra, Mrs. Reamer, Mrs. Rowe, Ms. Reynaert, Mrs. Wehbe, and Mr. Southward) for helping to shepherd our 8th-grade flock

Mr. Rubel

East Hills Middle School Community works together to foster caring partnerships that promote self-esteem and value the dignity and diversity of each individual. Through inquiry, creative expression, and critical thinking we nurture the joy and desire for lifelong learning and responsible citizenship for each learner of our school community.
