Principal's Message

 As the year closes, I am always reflective on the school year.  East Valley Elementary is a community comitted to your child’s academic, social and emotional growth. One of our biggest celebrations this year was being awarded the “School of Distinction” for the third year in a row. This is awarded to Washington Schools who have demonstrated significant growth.  I am proud of our teachers, students, and families who work together for student success.
 
I would like to thank our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) for providing many opportunities for our families, teachers and students.  Our Trunk or Treat, After School Art, Skateland, Book Fairs, Muffins with Mom, Donuts with Dad, assemblies and Community Dances would not be possible without the work of our PTO.
 
I hope you and your family take the summer to relax. I recently read an article where a parent asked the teacher for a summer homework packet.  Her answer was not the typical homework the parent was asking for but made good sense. 
·     Make sure your child knows how to tie their shoes.  It’s a safety issue when students are running at recess or just walking down the hall.
·     Make sure your child knows their address and an emergency phone number.  We rely on our numbers being programed into our phones.
·     Keep bedtime in the routine.  There may be certain nights it isn’t possible, but it keeps our bodies in a routine and August won’t be so hard.
·     Choose a few family members or friends to write to this summer.  Have your child write in full sentences with their best spelling. It keeps writing relevant and personal for the child, and don’t we all appreciate an old fashion letter in the mail?
·     Encourage kindness.  Find someone for your child to bring flowers to, make a card, bake cook…something simple for a smile.
·     Read to and with your child.  Students will know that reading isn’t just for school, and it will reduce the summer slump that we see each fall.
·     Be ok with downtime.  When we overbook our summer schedules, it becomes difficult to squeeze in the fun.
 
Have a wonderful summer, that only our Yakima Valley can offer and see you August 28thfor our Back to School BBQ and school starts September 3rd.
