When it snows, you have two choices: shovel or make snow angels.
Welcome back from Winter Break! I love winter break because it occurs at the perfect time….we all have an opportunity to rest and relax because once we return, we are near the half way mark of the school year- which means full speed ahead! The OAA week is just 15 weeks away and we still have much to do.
Parents please work with Eastern Heights in a partnership capacity. Let’s partner together to make sure our students are receiving the best education possible. The definition of a partnership, according to Merriam Webster, is:
1. one that shares : PARTAKER
2. a : one associated with another especially in an action : ASSOCIATE, COLLEAGUE
b : either of two persons who dance together
c : one of two or more persons who play together in a game against an opposing side
The first definition is “one that shares”. We both share the students and the responsibility to educate and teach them how to be successful, productive citizens.
The second definition has 3 parts. The first one (a) states, “one associated with another, especially in action”- our common action is to support your child by working together, keeping open communication lines going in both directions.
In the second definition (b), “two persons who dance together”, we must know the “same dance”- the same rules, guidelines, and expectations.
The final part of the second definition (c), states a partnership as one of two or more persons who play together in a game against an opposing side. We are the players on the same side fighting our opponent of illiteracy and mediocrity!
Let’s make this agreement to be partners official with a virtual handshake….there, now it is official!
As always, if you have any concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 440-284-8015. And remember to check our school Face Book page at facebook.com/EasternHeights.Middle for events, news, and photos of all the great things we do here at Eastern Heights!
Thanks for all you do!
