Former United States Secretary of Education Arne Duncan recognized Eastover Elementary School as a 2015 U.S. Department of Education Exemplary High Performing National Blue Ribbon School.

The National Blue Ribbon Schools Award is a highly recognized symbol of commendable teaching and learning. Schools are honored at a ceremony in Washington D.C. with a plaque affirming the hard work of students, educators, families and communities, and presented with a special flag to grace the school building. “This is an incredible honor for our school,” said Principal Carey Crocker. “The teachers, students, and families have worked hard to earn this distinction.” To read more click here.

Students Gardening at East Hills Elementary Visible Thinking Program

Visible Thinking and Sustainability

At Eastover, we aim to educate the whole child. In addition to a comprehensive curriculum based on the Common Core State Standards, students receive instruction in music, art, Spanish, physical education, and technology. Students also engage in learning opportunities that develop their creativity, compassion, and leadership skills. Character traits are continually reinforced through our Positive Behavior Support program. Our Visible Thinking initiative provides a culture of thinking that fosters creativity, problem solving, critical thinking, and collaboration. Students are given opportunities throughout the year to make a positive impact at home, in the community, and beyond, through our school sustainability initiative.


Students in multiple Bloomfield Hills Schools organized, educated, and inspired others to take care of and celebrate the environment as part of the global Earth Day/Earth Week. There were service learning fundraisers for various community causes, huge events to promote environmental education, and small actions by staff and students to increase understanding of environmental issues.

Dear Families,

Field day is Tuesday, June 4th!!! Our rain date is Thursday, June 6th. Grades K-1st  will have the morning time slot (10:00 -11:30am) while 2nd-3rd grades will have the afternoon time slot (1:30-3:00pm). Water events are a big part of the fun, so bathing suits, a towel, some sort of shoes that can get wet (flip flops, crocks, water shoes, etc), a dry change of clothing, and a bag for wet items are a must! Students are not allowed to be barefoot outside! *Please make sure students have an extra/dry pair of recess shoes! If you’d like to sign up to help please visit this SignUpGenius:

3rd Grade Move Up Day, May 24th


As part of the transition to fourth grade, third-grade students will visit East Hills on Friday, May 24.  On May 24th, Eastover students should report directly to Eastover in the morning.  Shortly after 9:00 a.m., the students will be transported by bus to East Hills.  May 24th is a half-day for all district students. 

The East Hills transition program for the third graders will end at 11:00 a.m.  Students will not return to Eastover at the end of the day.  Families will need to arrange rides home directly from East Hills.  In order to lessen traffic congestion at EHMS, carpooling is encouraged.  Prompt student pick-up at 11:00 a.m. will be appreciated.  Students will not be permitted to walk home after the program.  If you plan to park your car and come inside the building to pick up your child, there is no parking in the traffic loops . . . they are for pick up only.  We will be using the front loop (not the steps entrance) as our pick up point for all third-grade students participating in the program.

The entire East Hills staff is looking forward to this event for our new students. We have an informative morning planned for your child(ren) and we know they will enjoy their "first day" at East Hills.

An Important Note from Dr. Glass

It is with many mixed feelings that I share with you that I will be moving to New York at the end of this school year.  My wife recently accepted the position of Vice President of Human Resources and Labor Relations for the State University of New York's Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in Manhattan.  After making the difficult decision to relocate to New York, I was offered the position of Superintendent with Eastchester Union Free School District...
