Kindergarten Round-Up

Do you have a child ready for Kindergarten in the fall? Don’t assume Mr. Maurer knows you have a child ready for Kindergarten this fall! New to Eastern or this is your 8th child to go through, make sure we know they are ready to be a Comet!

We are in the process of working on class lists and teacher assignments for the fall. Please fill out the information in this link so we know to expect your child for Kindergarten this fall. If you have already filled out a transfer request or you have turned in information from our Kindergarten Round Up Parent Night back in March, you do not have to complete this form. If you know someone that is planning on sending their child in the fall that may not already follow us, please direct them to this link.

We are planning on having a special night for all incoming Kindergarten students in July. Info on that will follow the announcement from the IDOE (scheduled for this month) on their recommendations for starting school in the fall.

Thank you so much for your interest in Eastern Elementary School! Have a great summer and we will see you soon!

The Whorwell Musicianship Fund

Initiated by EHS band alums to honor Chuck and Joann Whorwell, this fund is committed to enhancing a culture of fine musicianship at Eastern High School.  Its goal is to make instruments more available and affordable and to provide for special clinics and instruction.  In 2016 grant funds were used to purchase two trumpets, and in 2017 nearly $1,000 was granted to purchase two flutes and one clarinet.

As of August 2017 the fund total was $30,100.  Continued donations to this fund will make even larger grants possible year after year.
