Dear East Middle School Students, Families, and Community,
East is moving in a great direction and we are excited for the 17-18 school year as we strive to make East a school where every student thrives academically, socially, and beyond! With your support and help, we know we will make East a center of excellence for the Aurora Community. The teachers and staff are FULLY dedicated to ensuring that our students are experiencing high-level learning every day while attending East. We firmly believe that all of our students have amazing ability and potential to be scholars and we want every student to know we believe in their ability to excel in the classroom.
Parents, please talk to your students about working to their greatest potential! We want all of our students graduating from high school with post-secondary options including the opportunity to attend a four-year college or university or begin a career. In order for this to be realized, students must attend school daily, study hard, work hard, earn the grades needed, and develop the social and emotional skills to be successful people in today’s society.
Parent Accountability Meetings will take place on the fourth Wednesday of every month. Please look for the schedule of times soon! We need to hear your voice and I encourage all of you to attend these meetings if you are available.
Grade Level Support: We have three Restorative Liaisons and three Assistant Principal's to support each grade level. They are:
- 6th grade
- Frutoso Chavez- Assistant Principal
- Yvette Bess - Restorative Liaison
- 7th grade
- Dr. Cori Canty - Assistant Principal
- Kaaryn McLeod - Restorative Liaison
- 8th grade
- Dr. Adam Gelman - Assistant Principal
- Rosalind Gullatt - Restorative Liaison
Please contact them directly with any concerns you might have.
Volunteering: We are constantly looking for parents to volunteer. If you are interested, please contact the school or vist the main page of the East website at http://east.aurorak12.org. Volunteering does not have to be spending the whole day at school or even a portion of the day. Some things you are able to help us with from your home. We just want you to be involved.
Please stop by any day and any time to visit with us and see what we are doing here at East. We highly value your presence. Tell your students we are looking forward to seeing their bright and smiling faces soon!
Dr. Biaze Houston, Principal
