Parents,

We hope that you have had a great week! We have had library trips, pumpkin decorating contests, and lots of other exciting things happening around the school!

Please make sure your child is here on-time and for the entire day.

It is so important that your child is here by 8:00 each morning and stays until they are dismissed. If they are late or checked out early, even by a few minutes, they miss out on valuable instruction.

Yearbooks are on sale!

Don’t forget to order a yearbook!  They are currently $35, but after November 16th the cost goes up to $45.  You can order online at ybpay.lifetouch.com using eStem East Village Elementary ID code:  13680419.  We also have order forms in the main office!

Information about Bus Passes

Beginning November 1st, students riding Rock Region Metro to and from school will have a new photo ID that will replace the current photo ID and 31-Day Student Pass. This ID will allow the student to ride any route in the transit system any day of the week without having to get a new 31-Day Student Pass each month.  At the beginning of each semester, the student will receive a new sticker for their photo ID that will be good for that semester.  The 1st photo ID with a sticker is free of charge, and each semester the new sticker is free of charge.  The students will only incur a fee if they lose their photo ID or if they tamper with the sticker.  The replacement fee for a lost or damaged photo ID or sticker is $10.00.  

This benefit is available to all students at no cost.  Contact your school office if you would like to sign your child up to participate.

Lunch/Breakfast Balances Must Be Paid

Please pay any remaining breakfast or lunch balances immediately. This can be done by visiting www.myschoolbucks.com, in the main office, or by sending money with your child. Students should not charge breakfast or lunch unless they have money loaded to their account. If you would like to complete the Free and Reduced Lunch form to find out if you qualify, please visit https://www.myschoolapps.com/.

Purchase East Village Cool Weather Gear!

Visit www.myschoolbucks.com or the main office to purchase cool weather gear! We love the new designs!
