Eastside:From the Principal
Each fall comes with a special sense of excitement, as staff and students come together again and begin a new chapter of learning at Eastside.
Many schools take the summers off, but at Eastside, our students return from just a short break after spending six weeks taking classes on campus or participating in off-campus programs. This summer Eastside students had the opportunity to earn college credits through our Foothill College courses, express their creativity through art and photography classes, hone new skills in challenging topics like computer science, travel the world, and take part in a wide variety of other activities.
Our new seniors also kicked off the busy and exciting college application season by participating in “boot camp,” researching colleges and getting a head start on their personal statements. And as they prepare to be our next class of first-generation college freshmen in just a year’s time, the members of the Eastside Class of 2022 are arriving on their new campuses, ready to put to work the skills they learned at Eastside, and knowing their college coaches are just a call away for support and guidance as they navigate their freshman year.
We are thankful for the generosity of many good friends who continue to make our work possible and look forward to a year of learning and growing together as a school community.
