Our East Hill Family is invited to join our East Hill Choir and Grades 2, 3 and 4 in a Holiday Sing-a-long at the KM High School Performing Arts Center at 6:30pm. Students need to be at the KM Cafeteria at 6:00pm. Students are requested to dress in Holiday Wear. An adult will need to stay with each family for this event.
Every Tuesday morning we have Bank Day at East Hill. Actual bankers from Washington Federal come to East Hill. Children can open an account with a $5 deposit and the Bank will match their first $5 with a FREE $5 from the bank. After the first deposit, students may bring in any amount, even a penny, to add to their account. This activity teaches our students the valuable skill of how to save their money for a future need or goal. Thank You to our awesome partners in banking.
