Dr. Wilson's letter to the Eastern Heights community
Our small school has a big heart. We are a "family". Nestled in a quiet East Side neighborhood, Eastern Heights Elementary celebrates inclusion of the rich cultural diversity of our students and their families each day. Teachers here know there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to education, so we focus on Restorative Practices, Culturally Relevant Teaching, and Integrating Technology into our academic instruction to Personalize Learning for each child.

Watch for upcoming opportunities to help us in decision making and planning for the upcoming year!
We're here WITH YOU!
At Eastern Heights each person has gifts and talents, is peaceful and kind and is here to learn! We are a Restorative Community at school, at home and in our community. We have school-wide Restorative Practices as we support our community of learners small and tall, through building strong relationships, responding to challenges with Restorative Impulse, Trauma Sensitive Practices, PBIS, and developing our Social Emotional Competencies.
Wellness Community of Practice Circles for Families, Staff and Community: Join us in circle as we explore our relationship with wellness, self-care, community challenges and trauma.
