Eastshore Elementary School

November/December News

November 15, 2017


Happy November and Thanksgiving!  We are thankful to be part of such an amazing community.  One of our staff commitments this year is to practice gratitude and it is easy to do when thinking of our partners in education here at Eastshore.  Thank you for your unwavering support – it means more to all of us than you can possibly imagine.

Our staff and students have undertaken a commendable effort to wipe out interrupting at Eastshore!  We have recognized how disruptive this practice can be to instruction, conversation and common courtesy so we have endeavored to be more mindful and conscientious about monitoring ourselves and each other.  Ask your child about the expectations and the common signal we have established.  We encourage you to incorporate this practice at home as well.

END OF TRIMESTER ONE: Friday, November 17th is the end of the first trimester.  Report cards will be posted on Friday, December 15th.  Please be sure to view your child’s report card and discuss his/her progress. 

THANK YOU DADS!!! We had an outstanding Pancake Breakfast thanks to the hard work of some amazing dads (and many moms)!  The staff loves flipping flapjacks and providing toppings during this community event as well.  We are very appreciative of your efforts and a special shout out to Mike Amundson for leading this year’s crew!

HOLIDAY SPIRIT AT EASTSHORE: In the spirit of holiday giving that is such an important part of what Eastshore stands for, we will again be collecting donations for Families Forward to help our own community members who are in need. After the Thanksgiving break, please look for more detailed information about the foods and gifts your family might donate. Our 6th Grade Service Learning Team will be leading the effort and visiting each classroom to educate our students about how donations help Irvine families. Eastshore students have big hearts and we hope they will feel more enthusiastic than ever about giving!

DONORS CHOOSE RECIPIENTS: We would like to give a hearty congratulations to Mrs. Estrada, Mrs. O’Mara, Mrs. Naramore and Mr. Tobenkin who have all had projects funded through Donors Choose.  Thank you to parents who participated and supported their efforts to bring additional resources to their classrooms!
