Due to a June Professional Development opportunity for our staff, we will be adjusting our school year ending date for students to Friday, May 31st.
Excellence for East is the Parent Teacher Organization to strengthen communication between parents and faculty. Four parent meetings are held each year. EVERYONE is welcome to attend! The principal talks about activities that are going on and issues that may affect our children. Any needs that the school or teachers have are addressed. Parents also have the opportunity to request, and ask, about topics or concerns they have.

Tuesday, September 18, 2018, 6:30 p.m.
Tuesday, November 20, 2018, 6:30 p.m.
