  • Jigsaw with Mrs. Daniels

    During PROWL this week, we are using strategies that both educational researchers, Marzano and Hattie, agree on. Mrs. Daniels and her PROWL group are seen here working on the jigsaw method. The jigsaw method involves reading a passage and then dividing up the reading to create experts of each section of the passage. Then, they come back together and share out the information they have learned.

  • Fire Prevention Week

    Fire Prevention Week is always the second week of October. We learned the history of the Great Chicago Fire, how firefighters thought about fire safety after the tragedy, a unique meeting place for their family if their house were to catch fire, and exits out of their rooms. Our standards are to identify people & resources that promote health & safety and we want to thank the Conway Fire Department for letting Eastside PE use the equipment for our students to do the kids' firefighter challenge. #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.
