We Still Need Staff Appreciation Volunteers for Next Year!
Eastlake is looking for at least 2 chairs to run staff appreciation next year. It is only 5-6 events for the whole year and you will get more smiles and thank you's from the incredibly grateful EHS staff than you will from any other activity. Email lists and sign-up genius's already exist so it would just be tweaking what is there. EHS PTSA has provided a generous budget to keep our EHS teachers appreciated and happy. The past chairs (who no longer have children at Eastlake) and the EHS PTSA Board will all be there to help. Hope you will join the pack!
Fall 2018 Laptop Roll Out
Laptop roll-out for Eastlake students will occur in late August on the same day as grade-level orientation.  Mark your calendar and have your student stop by anytime during their session to get their laptop before school starts.
  • 9th Grade: Monday, August 27; 8am - 1pm
  • 10th Grade: Tuesday, August 28; 8am - 1pm 
  • 11th Grade: Wednesday, August 29; 8am - 1pm
  • 12th Grade: Thursday, August 30; 8am - 1pm  
Freshmen and new students (only) must bring a laptop agreement form signed by a parent.  (Returning Eastlake students already have a form on file that is valid until graduation; therefore, returning students do NOT need to bring this form.)
