Empowering Excellence in School
At Eastside Elementary we are dedicated to serving students' individual needs by providing a safe, caring, and engaging environment. Students, parents, teachers, and the community are valued members of our innovative learning culture because children are our future.
Our very own Sarah Jerry was awarded one of the PBS LearningMedia Digital Top 100 Most Innovative Educators in America! Two very special visitors delivered her award. Way to go Mrs. Jerry!
Grandparents, teachers, and students all had a fantastic time at this year's Granparent's Day on November 22nd. The 5th grade students researched a self selected Native American Tribe and then developed presentatios to share with all of EES and their grandparents. We ate lunch together, enjoyed a book fair, and got our pictures made in front of the Eastside Christmas Tree. We love our Eastside Grands!
Eastside Wellness Night
Elementary recently hosted a Wellness Night for students, staff, and families of Greenbrier as a tailgate for the high school football game. Football players arrived at Eastside to talk to students about the importance of eating right and exercising. The players also read a book to each class before the leaving for their evening game. That evening, families were invited to enjoy healthy food, games, and fun before game time. Vendors set up booths and shared information about healthy programs available in Greenbrier.

Parents and students were invited to attend Eastside Elementary Math and Science Night on Tuesday, January 28, 2014.
Community volunteers greeted them in the lobby with hands-on activities for the students to discover each volunteer's field of study. Drs. Joe and Amy Crum were here to help students explore the spine and show how it helps our bodies work. Mr. Bettis from Whit Davis was here with his crew to provide hands-on wooden shapes for students, parents, and teachers to measure and create shapes. Ms. Kami Marsh and Mrs. Melanie Malone from the U of A
Department of Agriculture was here to provide a hands-on experience with sugar. Attendees measured out how much sugar was in certain foods. Mr. Kyle Hurley provided his bug collection for viewing. Arkansas State Representative Stephen
Meeks brought his telescope for attendees to explore space, and take a look at Jupiter and its two moons. Mr. Jarrod Jerry, APN with Conway Regional provided x-rays and discuss the importance of health care.
Parents and students were encouraged to visit their grade
level to see how students have learned about place value. They then attended the next grade level to see how place value skills grow with their education!
