Principal's Message 10-22-2021

Dear East Hills School Community:

What an amazing fall it has been - I have truly enjoyed seeing our students engage in all the opportunities available to them at the middle level.  On that note, a big shout out to our girls' basketball team for a thrilling victory yesterday over Country Day! 

Our Make a Difference Day efforts (in support of Gleaners) this week were impressive.  As the morning progressed, there was quite a mountain of canned goods that grew by our milk bar, and we raised hundreds of dollars as well!!!  Thank you to our East Hills community for always being so incredibly charitable.  A special thank you to Lara Alami, the East Hills PTO, and our students and families for their generosity and efforts in support of this great cause.

Many of our clubs begin officially next week.  If you missed our club sign-up window, see the article below for how to connect with the club sponsor.  The article includes information about clubs as well as start dates and other important information. Clubs need a minimum number of students to run.

Eighth-grade families should also review the article on the Washington, D.C. trip as we will be kicking off our planning with an in-person meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 27, at 6:30 p.m. in the East Hills cafeteria.

Our Red Ribbon Week was also officially kicked off today.  Many students and staff were wearing Green in support of Gleaners.  As we turn our attention to next week, the dress-up days are Monday (Hat Day), Tuesday (U of M vs. MSU - College Day), Wednesday (Clash/Mismatched Day), Thursday (Red and White Day), and Friday (Costume Day).

Don't forget that Friday, October 29 is a half-day with an 11:50 a.m. dismissal.
