We love our Foundation!

We are so fortunate to have a Foundation here at East Side. As you may know, the Capital Campaign fundraiser is happening now!

 The Foundation gives us the ability to request materials and trainings to make East Side Elementary THE place to teach and learn! The first grade team would like you to know how much we appreciate your donations and support. Your generosity makes all the difference!

 What has the Foundation already funded? Here are a few!


*       First graders have personal dry erase boards, Ozobots for coding activities, QuickWord resource books for writing, and educational apps for iPads.

*       Our teachers have received amazing trainings including: Orton-Gillingham, Reader’s and Writer’s Workshop, and Greg Tang Math.

*       The Foundation funds two collaboration days during the school year for grade levels to plan instruction.

*       Our students love the Maker Space which is funded by the Foundation!

*       Flexible seating in the media center that allows for students to work in different spaces.

Click to access the Foundation website for more information and to make a donation! The Foundation is asking each family for a donation of $75 per child; however, any donation amount gets us towards our goal. As a bonus, the Foundation is even offering class rewards for participation rates. Oooh la la!  

 Thank you,

             The First Grade Team
