Welcome back to the Spring Semester. As you may have been informed, we recently lost one of our students, Gianna Jones. During this time, it is more important than ever that we take the time to support our students and build relationships as we prepare them to move towards the future of their dreams. I was extremely proud and thankful to hear of the connections our staff made with Gianna; some staff have known her for many years. To that end, we will continue to focus on the ways we can support our students. We are only here because of them.
We hope you are full and fulfilled from Thanksgiving Break! Spending time with family and friends is always rejuvenating. As we continue the privilege of serving our Eastside students today, we recognize just how important the remaining four weeks of the semester will be. STAAR Testing and Final Exams are looming. Please continue monitoring your students grades and attendance, and ask about their day. Though this time is associated with joyful cheer, it can also be extremely stressful. Together, we can make this time both impactful and memorable for all the right reasons.
Dear Eastside Families,
