SENIOR PARENTS! - Hard to believe we are entering the final stretch of our seniors final months at East. As we look forward to Graduation, please see below for some very special opportunities to honor our seniors!

Senior Reminders

  • Seniors should have ordered caps and gowns by now. If you have not done so, please contact Graduate Services immediately at 513.272.5890.
  • All school fees must be paid by May 1, 2014. This includes fees from previous school years.
  • It is time to help our seniors stay focused. Know that our expectations do not change just because seniors are inching toward the end of their high school careers. In most case, we are not working with young adults - the expectation is they behave as such.

Blizzard Bags UPDATE   - Last week we announced that we’ll be using “blizzard bags”to make up three of the snow days we were out of school. Blizzard bags are alternate assignments designed to enrich a lesson or unit or reinforce content standards. They will mirror a typical student day in length and will be aligned to daily classroom work. In grades K-6 the assignments will be in core subject areas. In grades 7-12 the assignments will reflect the student’s schedule.

Here is the schedule for the blizzard bag assignments:
No. 1 – Assigned March 24, due April 14.
No. 2 – Assigned April 14, due April 29.
No. 3 – Assigned May 5, due May 19.

The assignments will be posted on Home Access Center (HAC) for students in grade 2-12. They will be given as hard-copy assignments in grades K-1, and to any student in any grade who does not have online access or access to a printer. If you have any questions about this, please contact your child’s teacher(s) for specific information.

It’s not too late to order your yearbook! Go to or call 1-866-282-1516.  You can order your yearbook through June 15, 2014. Don’t miss out! The yearbook is $75 and will be delivered to your home. You must order the book on line or by phone. Any question please contact Mrs. Breland at 759-8616.
