February 14, 2017

Happy Valentine’s Day! It is hard to believe that we are already looking ahead to 2017-2018...but we are! It is very important for us to plan for enrollment and staffing for the upcoming year and so we kindly request your participation in completing Residency Verification and the Returning to Eastshore documentation as soon as possible. As you know, our district and our particular community are both highly impacted and we want to be able to support our neighborhood families first when it comes to enrollment. Thank you in advance for completing and submitting this documentation in a timely manner.

RESIDENCY VERIFICATION: Residency Verification has begun! Please complete and submit documentation verifying your place of residence as soon as possible (due on March 3rd). This process helps us plan for staffing and enrollment for the next school year.

RETURNING TO EASTSHORE: In addition to completing Residency Verification, you have also been sent a link to a survey to indicate your plans for returning to Eastshore next year. You will need to complete the short survey for each child attending our school. This valuable information will help us plan for enrollment and staffing for the 2017-2018 school year.

PTA UPDATE: Thank you to our P.T.A for providing an entertaining assembly for our students last week. The Alley Cats performed a variety of Doo Wop music from the 1950’s and 1960’s. Our students had a wonderful time and some of our staff even participated in the show!

JOG-A-THON COMING!!! Our Annual Jog-A-Thon is coming up in March and the kick-off is February 22nd. This is the only fundraiser conducted at Eastshore besides the pledge drive in the fall. We encourage every family to contribute to this cause. The proceeds come directly back to our school and benefit each and every student at Eastshore. Be on the look-out for the pledge envelope and more information about our Jog-A-Thon!

IRVINE JUNIOR GAMES: Calling all fourth, fifth and sixth graders!!! Irvine Junior Games is coming in May and we are gearing up at Eastshore for our biggest team ever! Mr. Reid Harrell, fourth grade teacher and Mr. Guillermo Licona, P.E. Para professional, will be leading our students in practices and team building over the next few months to prepare for this outstanding track and field event. Our dolphin mascot will be joining us once again!

Irvine Junior Games is the only IUSD event where students compete on school teams. All students are welcome and there are many events to choose from. The camaraderie is just amazing and it is such a fun day for our kids to join together and represent Eastshore.

Please encourage your child to register for Irvine Junior Games. Any questions can be directed to Mr. Harrell. The last day to register is this Thursday, February 16th!
