Happy April, everyone! We have parent/teacher conferences during the week of April 17th. Please make sure to schedule with your child’s teacher ASAP to learn about your student’s progress. Our teachers have lots of wonderful news to share with you about the exciting learning that is taking place every day here at Eastside! Join us for our last two PTA meetings on April 11th and May 16th at 6:00 in the Eastside Commons. We are always looking for new members to grow this very important organization. We are planning some exciting family events for the spring and would love for you to join us. We will be hosting Gardening with Grownups at Eastside on Thursday, April 27th, Mrs. Wells from OSU Extension is planning to bring her blender bike to make delicious and healthy spinach smoothies. We can do some planting and pull some weeds too! On Tuesday, May 9th, OMSI will be here to host an assembly during the day and provide a fun night of science for families from 6:00-7:00. On Thursday, May 25th we are going to have a Party on the Playground from 5:30-7:00 to bring families together to eat pizza, dance, play, and win prizes! To bring our year to a close we are hoping to host a couple of free-swimming nights at Mingus Park Pool in June. Stay tuned for more information!
