April letter to parents

Dear East Hill School Families,

Happy Spring!!!  It’s hard to believe that Spring Break is upon us and that we are about ten weeks away from the end of the 21-22 school year.  I encourage students and families to enjoy their time off, and reenergize for the final quarter of the school year.

Please find third quarter report cards enclosed with this letter.  We ask that you take time to review and discuss your child’s progress with them.  If you have concerns, please contact your child’s homeroom teacher after the break.  

I would like to thank the PTA for organizing Family Fun Day!  It was a great opportunity to have families back at East Hill filling the hallways with smiles and laughter.  I hope everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day!
