April is here

Dear East Side Elementary Families,

As the month of April approaches, it is the time of year for children to go outside and enjoy the warmer weather.  Children will go for walks, play on the playground, and play games around the building as part of their educational day.  Play is an important part of a child's education.  Please remember to have your child wear sneakers so she/he has a safe experience outside. 

 This time of year also brings administration of the Tennessee State Assessments.  These assessments are administered to help us understand how children are progressing in their learning.  This data also assists in making curriculum decisions at both the district and school level.

If you are wondering what you can do to help your child, here are some suggestions:

 •Encourage your child to try his/her best! •Help your child get a good night's sleep and have a good breakfast in the morning.

•Help your child with time management. •Remind your child to read carefully. •Remind your child to check his/her work.

 A special “thank you” to all teachers at East Side Elementary. They were recognized or the best teacher attendance in HCDE.  

 Please plan to attend the VIDEO LAUNCH BLOCK PARTY on April 1, 2017 from 3:30 until 5:30 @ 1609 McCallie Avenue

This will be a fun afternoon of games, art projects, ice cream, and music. East Side Elementary students will be highlighted in our school video.
