Jason Rubel, Principal
Dear East Hills School Community:
I want to extend to you a warm hello from East Hills!
As educators at East Hills, we have the responsibility and the privilege to offer to all of our students a safe environment where all students are able to grow and stretch themselves to reach their fullest potential. As a school community, we encourage our students to develop and to maintain their dreams by placing important adults in critical, supportive roles throughout their schooling experience. In this way, we model and demonstrate ways for our students to achieve their unique aspirations within the context of the school community.
"In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love." - Mother Teresa
In her quote, Mother Teresa very powerfully captures important wisdom about how to approach life (and schooling) to make it more fulfilling and significant. Teaching and learning offers us all numerous opportunities to focus on a number of "small things" that culminate over time to produce students that are prepared to do the "great things" of life. With this in mind, ultimately as a school community we are judged by the actions of our students and the way new student learning connects and impacts the world beyond our school.
Communication with families and the broader school community is a priority for me and the staff at East Hills Middle School. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to visit the main office, call, or email the school at any time. Your comments, suggestions, and input are welcomed and appreciated. If you do not receive my weekly listserv messages, please register for the East Hills listserv distribution here.
As the principal of East Hills Middle School, I believe that it is my responsibility to maintain and to continue to build a supportive and collaborative spirit at our school. Together as a school community we will build on the traditions of the past and meet the challenges of the future in innovative and exciting ways.
