Principal's Message

       
Dear Parents/Guardians,
 
It is a true honor to introduce myself as principal of East Valley Elementary.  I join the staff in welcoming you to another great school year.   I look forward to 2021-22 more so than ever before.  After the past eighteen challenging months, I don’t anticipate returning to normal.  Instead, I  look to the “new better”.  Teachers, parents and students had to learn many new tools to teach and learn. Communication and relationships are more important now, than ever before. If you are new to our district and East Valley Elementary, I look forward to meeting you.  If you are a
returning family, I look forward to our continued partnership.
 
Partnerships cannot occur without open communication. We use a variety of communication tools that we hope you will find useful.  For information specific to EVE, we use our handbook/calendar, School Messenger and this webpage.  My email address is crowston.colleen@evsd90.org  and my office number is 509 573-7620.   If you have any questions, or concerns, please let me know.  If you have a question or concern in your child’s classroom, I ask that you start with the teacher first.  After that, please let me know if I can be of assistance. 
 
At East Valley Elementary we use the Positive Behavior Incentive System  (PBIS) Program. We are focusing on four traits that define our focus throughout all areas of EVE.  The traits are: honesty, effort, respect, and organization (H.E.R.O). Please take the opportunity to discuss what these traits may look like in your daily routine at home as well.  Our goal is to build a climate of respect and consideration for others with the safety and welfare of our students and staff as our key interests.
 
I encourage you to be active in your child’s education.  Our school volunteers and PTO members are very dedicated and I appreciate their time.  If you have not had the opportunity to become involved, it is a new year and a new chance to get active in your child’s education. At this time, we are wating for further information from Yakima County Health Dept. as to the status of volunteers in our building.  Please feel free to fill out the volunteer form so I can process them quickly, when we have further guidelines.  Your voice is important to us. When parents and teachers engage actively in partnerships, we create a new culture and become a stronger learning environment.  I invite you to stop in or call 573-7620 if you have any questions or concerns.  I look forward to meeting you and the opportunity to work with your child.  Thank you for your support and partnership,
 
Sincerely,
Colleen Crowston
East Valley Elementary
Principal

Masking Requirements for EVHS Football games

Mask Requirements at EVHS Football Games

Last week Governor Jay Inslee changed the masking requirements for outdoor events where attendance will be over 500 people. Due to this new mask mandate, all spectators at our East Valley High School football games will be required to wear a mask (regardless of vaccination status). This new masking requirement went into effect on Monday, September 13, 2021. While we understand that there could be some inconvenience in wearing a mask while outdoors, we know our EV community will continue to support our athletes and students by making sure to mask up. With over 600 fans (sometimes nearly 1,200 depending on the opponent) attending our games, we meet the masking requirement for outdoor events for our football games. Let’s mask up so they can play! Go Big Red! Spirit…Pride…Excellence

Thank you to our parents for the last year from John Schieche

Thank You

The East Valley School District would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our families and the EV community for their support, patience, and flexibility throughout this past year while dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. To say the 2020-2021 school year was challenging for our families is an understatement. Going from 100% online learning, to hybrid, to elementary schools going back to all day in-person, and finally EVC and EVHS returning to all day, in-person; there has been one adjustment after another. Then, you add in filling out daily attestations, stocking up on facemasks, and keeping track of everyone your child came within 6’ of in the course of a day. It’s been a lot. It was a lot to ask of you. But, YOU did it…and we thank you! We hope you thoroughly enjoy your summer break. You have earned it!
