What a fantastic year we he have had at East! I want to thank all of you that gave of your time, talents and donations to help East this year!

The donations that you made to Write A Check in the fall were put to good use throughout the year. The money funded the daily livestream broadcast so that the students can have video/audio announcements, lab rats for 7th grade to dissect in science, sets for theatre, teacher grants, 3D printer and the Aim for Success school wide program. All of these items enhanced our children’s education.

Parents of 8th graders, thank you for all you have done the last three years at East. We will miss you and wish you all the best in as your child moves on to high school!

Parents of 6th and 7th graders, thank you for your help this year, and we look forward to you continuing to volunteer next year. The PTO hosts many events, and we can’t do it without all of our wonderful volunteers!

Have a wonderful summer with your families. Hopefully you will have some time to relax and enjoy the “lazy days of summer”! It is a pleasure to serve as your PTO President.
