If you have questions about your student's specific progress please contact the classroom teacher or your student's counselor, Mr. Sokoloski (Last names A-K) or Mrs. LaFleur (Last names L-Z) for a prompt response. If your child or family is in need of additonal resources please contact our counselors or Miranda Heemsoth, student advisor. East Middle School's Weekly Playlist and Staff Office Hours are posted on our website under Quick Links.
The social emotional well being of our students is as important as their academic learning. We understand that each child and family are dealing with a wide range of circumstances. We are giving our sincerest effort to address these needs as best we can.
Thank you for your continued support. Please stay safe and healthy.

Because citizenship is an important part of the development of the whole child, each marking period students will earn a citizenship grade on his/her report card. This rubric outlines the factors that we consider when determining a child’s citizenship grade. The goal is for students to be in the “Meets Expectations” category overall. Students must earn a 3 or a 4 to be on the honor roll. To be eligible for sports, students must earn a 2, 3, or 4.
