Parent Survey & Thanksgiving Basket

East Side families, It is time for you to complete the Georgia Parent Survey. The data gathered from these surveys will be used as part of the calculation of East Side’s School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below.  We ask for one parent from each family to complete the survey by Friday, December 15, 2017.

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.
