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.

Dear Eastover Families, 

The students at Eastover will need some help with summer maintenance in the garden.  A sign-up has been created so your family can schedule time to come to Eastover and help weed the garden. If you sign up for a week, please try to come to school at least twice. You may come any day and any time of the week you sign up for (ignore the 8:00 am-4:00 pm).
