HG&D Parent Preview

If you were unable to attend the parent preview for the upcoming Human Growth and Development program, there is a second opportunity to come in and  look at the information your child would receive. This is not the original presentation by Kathy Krueger but rather an opportunity to look a the information in a folder format with photocopies of the slides from her PowerPoint presentation.  If you would like to have an opportunity to look at this information please email Virginia Hetzel (4th & 5th counselor) at [email protected].


The second preview session will Tuesday, April 24th 10:00-11:00 am or 2:00-3:00 pm.


Thank you.


Tomorrow, all fifth grade classes are participating in a STEM activity. If they have a STEM T-shirt, please have them wear it. The students will be placed into groups and asked to construct a parachute large enough to carry a toy army man. If the students would like to bring additional materials from home to build their parachute, they may.

Fifth Grade Tradition

One of our East Side traditions is that on the last day of school there is a photo slideshow streamed throughout the school that features our 5th graders. We need your help to make this happen! Please send a photo of your child as a 5 year old and a current photo to the email address below. If you have 2 or 3 other pictures that feature groups of students during their time at East Side, we would love to have some of those as well.


Please send the email to: [email protected] and include the name of your student in the subject line by May 4, 2018. We look forward to receiving pictures of all students!


Thank you from Ms. Alexander and the 5th Grade Team.

“Gimme 5 for Education”

Our “Gimme 5 for Education” campaign to raise funds for the Cobb Schools Foundation will be ending tomorrow, Friday, April 13!  Thank you to all the families and staff members who have already donated! We have raised about $1,200 for our school which means we will get 50% back to use at our school! Please help us meet our goal of $1,500 before tomorrow’s deadline. All checks can be made out to East Side and can go into the white safe or you can donate online at Gimme 5 Online Donation Page. Don’t forget it is a tax-deductible contribution! Again, thank you for giving East Side a high five to education and supporting our school continuously.

Availible Resource

I came across this Social Studies resource for free. It goes over all of the fifth grade standards in an easy to study format. It is here if you would like it.
