Principal's Message 11-16-18

Dear East Hills School Community:

We had our first night of fall parent-teacher conferences this past Thursday for sixth- through eighth-grade families. It was great to see so many parents and family members in our building! This Monday, November 19 from 5:00-8:00 p.m, we have one more night of conferences for sixth- through eighth-grade as well as a continuation of some pre-arranged individual fourth- and fifth-grade conferences.  Thank you to our incredible PTO for making tasty snack bags for staff heading into Thursday's conferences and thank you in advance for providing dinner for our faculty this coming Monday night.

Additionally, we had a lovely 7th and 8th grade music concert Wednesday, November 14. The concert featured music from our 7th and 8th grade orchestra, band, and choir students. The music and performance sounded fantastic!  A special thank you to Mrs. Lucas, Mr. Erde, and Mr. Schumacher for directing such great performances.

Today East Hills was very fortunate to receive some amazing grants from the BHS Foundation! We are blessed to work in such an amazing school district with such generous families, community members, and staff!

Please note that Tuesday, November 20, is a half day for East Hills with an 11:35 a.m. dismissal. We do not have school for the remainder of the week. Have a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving Break!

"The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest."
