Principal's Message

Thank you for another successful year.  Each year, it is amazing to see the the growth of our students, socially, behaviorally and academically.  As I reflect on the past school year, I am especially proud our students and staff with various accomplishments.  Our children have made significant gains in the areas of academics and attendance.  With the support of Lisa Bartheld and our Leadership Group, students collected hundreds of items to be donated to our local food pantry.  Our fourth grade students became "self-managers' and supported younger students throughout the various grade levels.  All EVE students demonstrated the character traits of being a HERO daily by demonstrating honesty, effort, respect and organization. 
I would like to take the opportunity to thank some of our teachers who will not be returning to EVE next year.  Sandy Baum, Enely Rodriguez, Allee Mackee, Alyssa Grove and Kristal Volland have each contributed to our success and we will truly miss them as part of our EVE family.  Another person I would like to recognize is Jeanette Heater.  She has been our PTO president for many years.  Her countless hours and dedication have never been taken for granted.  She will certainly be missed. Thank you for your endless support Jeannette!
Finally, I want to say good-bye to our fifth grade students.  The class of 2031 was a special group. As we explained during our End-of-the-Year Assembly, once you are an EVE Jaguar, you are always remain in our hearts as an EVE Jaguar.  We expect students to continue to showcase the HERO characteristics as they have while attending East Valley Elementary.  We look forward to seeing you walk our halls again in June of 2031. 
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 twenty to thirty minutes.  Your child will be ready for another successful year when school begins again.  We look forward to seeing you in August.  Our office will be open August 13th, Open House and BBQ will be August 21st and school begins August 27th.  I am truly thankful for your support and trust with your child. If you have any concerns or know of ways we can improve, please call my office.  I would appreciate your input. Have a wonderful summer.
