Greenbrier Eastside Elementary

Whatever It Takes!


  • Fun Friday Clubs

    Every other Friday we have Fun Friday Club Day! Students selected from a variety of club options and were able to form connections with adults in the building who might not be one of their teachers but can teach them about something they are interested in! #EESlegacy #greenbrierproud

  • 4th grade dialogue

    Ms. Martinez’s fourth-grade literacy is learning all about dialogue…with a nice view and great weather! Students are learning how to correctly punctuate dialogue depending on where the speaker tag is in the sentence. With enough practice, students will potentially build the confidence to use dialogue more in their writing prompts! #EESlegacy #GreenbrierProud

  • Eastside goes unplugged!

    Eastside Unplugged goes unplugged and we are so excited! Research reveals correlations between excessive screen time and dysregulation, lower levels of cognition, and depressive symptoms in children. It is our mission to raise awareness of the impact of excessive screen time by promoting healthy habits for our students, including "unplugging" and spending time engaged with peers doing hands-on activities. We promise to value your child's brain development and be an advocate for their growth! Stay tuned for updates tomorrow on all the exciting learning taking place.

  • Compass of the Week

    Mrs. Daniels passed the Compass of the week to Mrs. Hogg! She said, "National Geographic describes a compass as one of the most important instruments for navigation. Our school could not stay on course without Mrs.Hogg. She provides the students and the teachers with tools that help us all navigate calm and rough waters. Mrs. Hogg spreads kindness and compassion like confetti!! Eastside is blessed to have her as our school counselor." #EESlegacy #GreenbrierProud

  • Tops and Bottoms

    Students in kindergarten learn the parts of a plant and first grade builds on that by learning the function of each part. 🌱 Mrs. Lane hooked her students into their plant unit with Tops and Bottoms and a celery experiment. Students are already predicting that the leaves are turning the color of the water because the water is somehow traveling up the stem! 👩🏻‍🔬

  • 2nd grade 'hooked' on Charolette's Web!

    2nd grade teachers ‘hooked’ their students into their new read aloud, Charlotte’s Web! As they enjoy this read aloud they will also be learning story elements and key vocabulary!#EESlegacy #GreenbrierProud #TLAP

  • Relationships First!

    A huge focus for the first few weeks of school is to build relationships between the adults in the building and our students. We know that this is the first step to learning! We would love for our families to ask their child each day “who made a difference for you at school today?” Sometimes it is their teacher, but sometimes their answer will completely surprise you!

  • Orientation

    Please make plans to attend orientation!  All school supplies will be provided by the district but this is a time to meet your child's teacher and for them to see their classroom!  You will begin orientation with a few words from the principals in the cafeteria then they will dismiss you to your child's classroom!  This night will be full of important information you won't want to miss! #EESlegacy #GreenbrierProud

  • Selfies at Sonic

    Every year Eastside holds Selfies at Sonic!  This is a fun and informal event where families can meet the principals, see some teachers, and snap a selfie!  We love this time to get to know our families in the community setting! #EESlegacy #GreenbrierProud

  • 3rd-grade semantic gradients

    Clutter Mess Disorder Confusion Destruction Chaos Semantic gradients are a great way to deepen students' understanding of related words! Today, 3rd-grade readers warmed up their brains by trying to organize words from the least amount to the greatest amount of "disorder", one of our newest vocabulary words. We even tossed in a few antonyms at the end to enrich our discussion! #eeslegends #GreenbrierProud

  • Goal setting!

    Our Eastside Legends have waited all year for this moment! They have been reflecting on their learning this week and setting their goal for their end of year testing that starts next week for Grades k through 3rd grade! Student self reflection is a huge component of what we do at Eastside to build student self efficacy! We are so proud of all their powerful growth and can’t wait to see how they rock that test and GLOW! #eeslegends #GreenbrierProud

Parent FAQs

    • When is the school day?
      • School day begins at 7:50 a.m. and ends at 3:20 p.m. Car riders should not arrive before 7:25 a.m. Students arriving after 7:50 a.m. and before 8:30 a.m. or leaving between 2:40 to 3:20 p.m. will be considered tardy and must be signed in/out through the office by a parent/guardian. Students arriving after 8:30 a.m. or leaving before 2:40 p.m. will receive a 1⁄2 day absence.
    • When does my child have to be picked up?
      • Car riders must be picked up by 3:40 p.m. Parents/guardians should remain in their cars when picking up their children in the afternoon so that students may be more closely monitored unless a parent needs to speak to school staff. No one will be allowed to wait inside the building.
    • How many days of school can my child miss?
      • Students shall not be absent, as defined in this policy more than 8 days in grades K-5 in a semester. When a student has 4 days in grades K-5 absences, his/her parent, guardian, or person in loco parentis shall be notified that the student has missed half the allowable days for the semester. Notification may be by telephone.
      • Whenever a K-5 student exceeds 8 unexcused days in a semester, the District shall notify the prosecuting authority and the parent, guardian, or person in loco parentis shall be subject to a civil penalty as prescribed by law. A K-5 student with 8 unexcused days in a course in a semester shall not receive credit for that semester. If the student fails to receive credit for a sufficient number of courses and at the discretion of the principal after consultation with persons having knowledge of the circumstances of the absences, the student may be denied promotion. Excessive absences, however, shall not be a reason for expulsion or dismissal of a student.
    • Can I come eat lunch with my child?
      • Yes, we have an outside lunch area set up for parents to eat with students. You must sign in at the office with Ms. Whitney and she will call for your student. 
    • Can I bring cupcakes for my child’s birthday?
      • Unfortunately, you cannot bring cupcakes for your child’s birthday. If you would like to send a special snack, you are welcome to bring something from the approved snack list.
    • What should I do if I have a concern about my child?
      • We ask that you contact your child’s teacher first with any issues. If your child’s teacher is unable to resolve the issue they will direct you to the administrator.
