Parents,

We’ve had a great first week back after Thanksgiving Break! Our 3rd through 6th grade students have worked so hard this week on their NWEA tests. They have really focused on doing their best, and we have seen a great deal of growth since our first test! We are excited for our Kindergarten through 2nd grade students to complete the tests next week. Remember, these assessments help our teachers pinpoint exactly what students need. Find out more about NWEA by clicking here.

Outdoor Activities

We will have outdoor activities when the wind chill is above 32 degrees. Please make sure that your children wear warm clothes and have a jacket or coat. We encourage you to place your child’s name inside their coats or jackets, so that they can be returned if they are left somewhere in the building.

Behavioral Health Services of Arkansas

We are excited to partner with Behavioral Health Services of Arkansas next semester. Beginning in January, we will have a full-time clinical therapist here at the school. We believe that this is going to provide our students who require these services with consistency and support. You can learn more about the services they offer by clicking here. If you feel that your child would benefit from these services, you can reach out to your child’s teacher or our school counselor, Mrs. Knight. If your child is currently seeing a provider, we will be reaching out to you individually with more information.

Santa is coming to East Village Elementary!

Santa will be visiting Friday, December 7th! If you would like for your child to take a picture with Santa, you can go to www.myschoolbucks.com to sign up and pay the $5 fee. Photos must be purchased by the end of the day on December 6th.

  • Coat Drive: We now have a donation box in the office for gently used coats. Any coats that are donated will be used to help make sure all of our students stay warm.
