  • East Street Honors Nation’s Heroes

    The East Street community paid homage to the nation’s fallen heroes with a medley of patriotic musical performances, speeches and activities during its annual Memorial Day ceremony. Following a schoolwide performance of “God Bless America,” student representatives from every class planted small flags in the “Field of Honor” located at the front schoolyard. Three fifth-graders then read aloud their essays about what Memorial Day means to them, and the ceremony concluded with a schoolwide singalong of “Proud to Be an American,” which featured some students performing the song in sign language.

  • The Lion King. A "Roaring" Success

    Congratulations to the cast, crew, and directors Mr. DePalo, Ms. Haddock, and Mr. Starr for their amazing production of The Lion King. The production made history with sold out shows on Friday and Saturday. The coordination and choreography was truly breathtaking given that almost one hundred and twenty students participated in all aspects of the production. Talent abounded as students performed not only on stage but in the aisles as well. The directors creatively utilized all areas of the auditorium to create a surround sound effect as students chanted from the rear and down the aisles as they joined in with their counterparts on stage. Special thanks to the stage crew for all of their help behind the scenes to keep the production running smoothly and successfully. A great job by all!!
