Eastshore Elementary School

November 14, 2016

Thanksgiving is next week already! My how this fall has flown by…

Thank you to the Eastshore PTA and our awesome dads and staff who helped make our annual Pancake Breakfast a fantastic event – a great time was had by all!

Please read on for the most updated news…

ELD/TITLE I Parent Education Night: Each year students qualify for a variety of supports provided during the instructional day. Tomorrow night, our staff will be providing valuable information to parents whose students either qualify for Title I services or who are designated as English language learners. Invitations have been sent to parents whose students qualify for support under both these programs and we look forward to seeing you tomorrow evening, November 15th, at 5:30 p.m. in the multi-purpose room at Eastshore.

IUSD ANNUAL SURVEY: If you have not already done so, please complete the annual survey by November 20th. The data from this survey provides valuable information to our site and the district. We review the data annually to guide our continuous improvement plans. Just click on the attached link.

End of First Trimester: First trimester ends on Friday, November 18th. Report cards will be posted to the Parent Portal on Friday, December 2nd. Please be sure to check the portal and discuss your child’s progress with them. Your interest and involvement in your child’s education are highly impactful upon their success. We appreciate your support!

PTA Updates: Eastshore Dines out this Wednesday at Islands! Please keep an eye out for the flyer and take it with you so that a portion of the proceeds come back to EastshoreJ.

The Yearbook Cover Contest will be launched this week. Students are encouraged to design a cover and leave their mark on Eastshore! Parameters and requirements will be sent home in the Thursday conduits.

The next general PTA meeting will be held on Thursday, December 1st. Please join us to hear the latest updates and add your voice to the discussion that take place. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the MPR.

Service Learning at Eastshore: Each year during the holiday season our school community participates in some type of service learning. This year we will continue that tradition but will be including the students in determining what organizations we will support. Students will be taking a survey and selecting from three charitable organizations. As soon as the decision is made, you will receive information about how your family can support those in need in our community.

We wish all of you and your loved ones a very Happy Thanksgiving. We at Eastshore are thankful for our supportive families and wonderful students! Additionally, we send our best wishes for a wonderful holiday season and a healthy and happy new year!
