Announcements & Latest News
We have a little over 2 months under our belt already. Yikes! Where does time go?
The Pledge and Membership Drive was a huge success. Thank you to Yoko Sakagami and Iris Spear! Eastshore PTA raised the $25,000 we had budgeted at the end of the last school year! Thank you to everyone who contributed to this drive! Your support is crucial to the PTA’s success and involvement at Eastshore.
The Harvest Cup on October 20th was a fun and successful event and we congratulate all of our wonderful soccer players for giving it their all!
Unfortunately, Harvest Cup ended up being on the same night as our International Night, so while we had some students and parents at the Great Park cheering on soccer players, we also had families enjoying international food, mingling with other families, and cheering on our “red carpet” celebrities. Thank you Jamilah Nahas for being our chair for this tradition! Hopefully everyone got something out of this busy evening! I know I enjoyed the excitement at the soccer field and was glad to see all of the children at school dressed up in their traditional costumes.
On November 27th, the PTA hosted a small Reflections Art Show in the MPR. We want to thank all the young artists and their families for their participation! Out of 30 entries received at Eastshore, 7 entries have advanced to the Irvine Unified Council PTA for the next round of judging. The artists of those 7 entries are: Aanya Mody, Madeleine Chang, Olivia Nelson, Aashay Mody, Ava Diaz, Jesse Ie, and Rachel Rubin.
We hope everyone enjoyed the Pancake Breakfast hosted by the Eastshore PTA. Thank you very much to Heather and Mike Amundson for coordinating yet another amazing breakfast. And thank you to all the dads and Eastshore staff members who volunteered for this fabulous event!
The first student assembly of this school year took place on Monday, 11/6. Ask your child about their experience! The PTA arranged for PowerHouse to inspire the students with some fun and fast music, movement and power.
Thank you for reading!
President, Eastshore PTA
Yikes, one month has already passed since school started! The Eastshore PTA has been very busy and I hope that most of you were able to enjoy the Back to School Coffee, as well as the Back to School Family Event. We also welcomed some new faces to our General Meeting and are excited to keep the enthusiasm going as the year goes on!!
Here are some important PTA reminders:
– The last week of our Fall Pledge & Membership Drive is underway!! The PTA funds activities and programs that benefit EVERY student at Eastshore so our goal is 100% participation! With just about 40% of all of our students’ families contributing, we have raised $20,000. Every amount counts!! Imagine what we can achieve with the rest of the 60% pitching in?
