BRONCO BARN SEPT-OCT 2016
Published: Mon, Sep 26, 2016, 12:39PM CDT

The Bronco Barn sells useful and fun items like pens, pencils, other school supplies, and mints during lunchtime on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. The Barn is located just outside the main gym.

Staffing the Bronco Barn is a fun way to be involved at East and requires only a minimal time commitment. Although only 1 person is required to work the Barn each shift, it is much more fun (and pretty helpful!) to sign up with a friend. There are places for 2 people to sign up each shift, but only one is necessary if you are comfortable working alone. Thanks for considering how you can help out! Please remember that a background check is required each year for all volunteers. Background Check Online

Volunteer today through the link below and watch for updates throughout the year! Never worked in the Barn before? No worries—we’ll walk you through it! Please click here on Bronco Barn Procedures 2016 more information or contact Jessi Davidson-Irizarry for additional instruction and support.

ATTN: 6TH GRADE PARENTS- 6th Grade Social- Friday 23rd Sept 7-9 pm
Published: Mon, Sep 19, 2016, 12:57PM CDT

Parents the time has come for our 6th GRADE DANCE/SOCIAL.

FUN FACT:

School Dances are NOT like you might have experienced… you know that socially awkward dance where boys are gathered on one side and girls on the other side of the gym.
Oh no, it is kids having a blast talking, laughing, playing basketball, playing board games, and even dancing in a large group.

This is why we changed the name to “The 6th Grade Social”. It is a fun and safe event where your child can hang out with their friends, make new friends and form awesome middle school memories.

We have photo area for selfies, open gym play, free raffle drawing, a game room with various board games, and yes, we do have a dance floor for those students who like to bust a move. We also managed to secure the coolest DJ in town…… DJ. Springer rocking the house.

Djimage

Our first Social for the year is our 6th Grade Icebreaker. We plan this Social for 6th grade only so they can mingle and get to know their new classmates and to see why EAST IS BEAST. All other Socials will be for all grade levels.

So, mark your calendar, and encourage your child to attend the 6th Grade Icebreaker Social on Sept 23rd from 7-9 pm We look forward to seeing them.

Published: Mon, Sep 19, 2016, 12:57PM CDT

State mandated vision, hearing and acanthosis nigricans screenings for all 7th graders will begin shortly. Please have your student bring their glasses or wear their contact lenses to school. In the event your student does not pass any of the screenings, I will notify parents via email that a referral letter is being sent home with your student. I can provide assistance for those students with failed screenings who do not have vision insurance so please contact me.

The Assistance League of Coppells’ Operation School Bell program is available to assist families who need help with school supplies and clothing for their children. Please contact me for an application.

Health information is very important in helping kids stay healthy, safe and ready to learn. Please keep sending in those asthma, food allergy and seizure action plans or contact me to set up a time to discuss your students’ health/medical concerns.
