  1. Dear Miss Vander Velde, Mr. Moore and 5th grade students,

    Your teachers and I had a great discussion about YOU on Saturday. One of the main topics of the discussion was about how some of you are treating each other. Showing Dragon Heart behavior is a daily expectation at East. You all should know this by now. Respecting one another(Golden Rule)should not be something your teachers have to constantly teach, except it has become a big distraction to your education for some. Remember, it is extremely important to stay focused on the prize. If you want to know what that prize is just ask any of the staff members at East and they will be glad to tell. I will be really interested in reading your responses, especially about how I can improve as a Principal. Remember, too, how much we love and care about you.
