We've Got Spirit, Yes We Do!
The halls of East Elementary were alive with school spirit on Friday, October 3rd. Students were treated to an exciting Pep Rally before Fall Intersession. The pep rally celebrated the conclusion of CJs Art Contest and encouraged school spirit. For the art contest students were encouraged to submit artwork that displayed their school spirit. The art contest was brought to life by one of our own students, CJ! With help from administration and teachers, the art contest grew into a school wide event with many students from different grade levels participating.
Students also celebrated with a visit from the Monroe High School cheerleaders and mascot, Redhawk. Students were surprised with a new school song, complete with dance moves! Everyone left proud to be an East Elementary Eagle – You’re Gonna See Us Soar!
Local church brings uniforms, smiles and support to East students
Thanks to the generosity of a local Lutheran church, many students at East Elementary School started the school year with bright new uniforms. When St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Monroe reached its 125th anniversary in early August, some of its members decided to celebrate that momentous event by helping children in the community who are less fortunate. One of the church’s members, Jennifer Wallace, is also a teacher at East Elementary. She informed the committee that there were students at her school who had only one uniform or were wearing clothes that didn’t fit.Full Story
