You are here

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As spring approaches, (rapidly I hope) it becomes more important for every student to be here every day! The best and brightest students cannot accomplish great things from home. They need to be at school. The staff of East High School eagerly await your student’s arrival each and every day. We plan for them. We spend time preparing great lessons for them. Our desire is to prepare your student for whatever the future may hold in store.

With spring comes many activities and I hope your student gets connected. There will be dances and athletics and clubs and plays and music and countless other ways for your student to get tied into the EHS culture. If you find your student to be disengaged, please let us know. Reach out to their counselor. Call the administration. We are here for them and you. I ask that you check the school calendar and plan accordingly. Spring is also testing time. We will have Aspire testing, AP testing and semester exams. These tests are important for your student and East High. If at all possible, please plan to ensure your student is on campus during these important windows.

We also appreciate our strong parent support in keeping students focused and to maintain the academic progress that we have achieved to this point in the school year. We all need to do our part to keep students on target with their academic goals in order to complete the school year successfully. As a school, we welcome the efforts of our parents to impress on all of our students the importance of doing well for the end of the school year. As always, thank you for allowing me to work with your children.
