Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Guardians,
 
         Thank you for another successful school year.  Each year it is amazing to see the growth of our students, socially, behaviorally and academically.  As I reflect on the past school year, I am especially proud of our students.  Our children have made significant gains in growth and achievement.  They adjusted to being back into school full time with and without masks! We are proud of our various accomplishments this year.  The leadership group, under the guidance of Lisa Bartheld, collected hundreds of pounds of food for our local food pantry.  They also, continued our recycling program, and were always willing to offer support in getting the needed lunchboxes returned to classrooms.   Our third graders became big buddies with kindergarten friends. Each student enjoyed their time with their buddy.  We hope these friendships will be reconnected during their freshman-senior year. 
 
         I would like to give a special recognition to our two retiring teachers: Carla Davis and Lisa Gole. They have a combined total of over sixty years of making a special connection with many young lives.   They did a tremendous job and never came to ‘work’.  They came to school each day ready to have the students change their lives.  Thank you and we will miss you dearly.  Enjoy your retirement.  It’s well deserved!
 
         This was our first year with Jordon, our Social Emotional Support dog.  A huge thank you to Kevin Taylor who took the time to have her trained for our students and staff.  Daily, she made an impact on the atmosphere in “Our House”
 
         Good luck to our fifth-graders, the class of 2029!   As we explained during our End-of-the-Year Assembly, once you are an East Valley Jaguar, you will always remain in our hearts as an E. V. Jaguar.  We expect students to continue to showcase the HERO characteristics as they have while attending East Valley Elementary.  
 
         A big “thank you” to our many volunteers.  We would not be as successful without our volunteers, partnership with The Heights  Church and East Valley Reform Pantry and Parent Teacher Organization.  If you are interested, please stop by the office for a volunteer form.  We would love to have you!
 
         During the long summer days when you find yourself traveling, waiting for the next baseball game or sitting on a blanket under a tree, make the time to read.  Avoid the “summer slump” by reading daily for thirty minutes.  Your child will be ready for another successful year when September begins.  We look forward to seeing you in August.  Our office will be open August 16th, our Open House/Barbeque will be August 24th and school starts August 30th See you then!
 
Sincerely,
Colleen Crowston
