Eastern Elementary was awarded the recognition as a 2018 Overall A School! CONGRATULATIONS TO THE STUDENTS AND STAFF AT EASTERN!

Overall A

Congratulations! I’m honored to notify you Ohio’s State Board of Education has granted your school its Overall A Award.

As an Overall A Award winner, your school’s report card shows your school is demonstrating high academic performance and building bright futures for students of every background and ability level. Congratulations on this impressive achievement!

Ohio’s strategic plan for education, Each Child, Our Future, is the state’s plan to ensure each student is challenged, prepared and empowered for his or her future by way of an excellent prekindergarten through grade 12 education. Our mission is to prepare students for a future that has yet to be written. Many consider this to be a daunting endeavor. Your education team, however, has clearly embraced this challenge. 

I want you to know how much we appreciate your leadership and the dedication your team has to providing a high-quality experience for all students. Please share our gratitude with all of those who contributed to this accomplishment.

In the coming weeks, you’ll receive an official ‘Overall A’ banner to display in your school.

Safe Snack Protocol

Lately, we have had some ‘Birthday’ Snacks being delivered without permission or any type of notification.  We have several severe food allergies throughout the building and it is pivotal and required that you contact your teachers about sending snacks in.  Please do not send in Birthday Treats with your child prior to contacting the team of teachers.  You may also review the link below relating to the Safe Snack Information.  This was shared at Orientation, sent home, and teachers included it in their beginning of the year packets as well.

Thank you greatly for assisting us with keeping all students safe.
