Zoo Trip

Parents:  please remember that we are going to the Zoo on Friday.  We will need every child to wear clothes appropriate for the weather – shorts or jeans to go with our Field Trip shirts.  All lunches brought from home should be completely disposable including the water bottle and bag.  If you are meeting us at the zoo, please be there at 9:45 at the front gate of the zoo.  Thanks for your help with this!

Gimme 5

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.

Report Cards
