Gently Used Book Drive

East Side Elementary is proud to support the Kiwanis Circle K Club of Kennesaw State University and Georgia Highlands Paulding Campus to promote the America Reads program this year. America Reads Initiative is a federal program that allows KSU and GHC work study students to tutor elementary and middle school students in Paulding and surrounding counties who are in need. Please consider donating a gently used or new book, but please don’t put your child’s name in it. A note of encouragement about the joys of reading that is slipped between the pages of a book is most welcome. The book drive will run until November 30th. Boxes are placed by the cafeteria and gym doors.

Red Ribbon Week: Oct. 23-27

Please help your child participate in this year’s Red Ribbon Week as we encourage your child to encourage others, make positive choices and be drug free. This flyer was sent home at the end of last week in their home folder.

I can’t wait to see all the tie-dye, peace signs, team jerseys, super heroes, and crazy hair or hats!

Mystery Reader

Thursday morning one of our students was very surprised to see her dad! Mr. Berrell had come to read to our first graders! The children enjoyed the stories of Strega Nona and The Girl Who Would Not Wash Her Hair. Thank you Mr. Berrell!

Schoolwide STEM day- Caine’s arcade

It all started with a little boy, cardboard boxes, and an imagination. Caine’s arcade has inspired other children to use their imagination and materials they have to create arcade games to play. Today our children used cardboard boxes, egg cartons, tape, plates, paper towel rolls, and other materials sent in to make arcade games in our room. Thank you to the many parents that came out to help cut tape and assist our children in making their games and imaginations come to life. Then, after lunch they were able to play their games and games from other classrooms. It was a blast!
