Annual Education Report


East China School District K-2 parents,

Michigan's Early Literacy and Mathematics Benchmark Assessments are short, online assessments that are fully aligned to Michigan's academic standards, and may be used by teachers as one measure of student growth.

These Early Literacy and Mathematics Benchmark Assessments (also referred to as the K-2’s) were developed in cooperation with Michigan educators beginning with item writing and continuing through field-test data review. The benchmark assessments currently offered by Michigan are for students in Kindergarten, First Grade, and Second Grade, in both English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics.  These will subsequently be given to ECSD K-2 students within the month of May, 2017. 

If there are any questions regarding these K-2 Early Literacy and Mathematics Benchmarks, please contact your child’s Principal.  Thank you for all you do to support the East China School District, our students and our community.

It is always such a great day when we have family from in and out of our community here at the school.  Seeing so many grandparents and grandfriends was a surely spectacular site!  Thanks once again to our wonderful PTO and parents who helped organize this event or helped work the event.  It truly takes a team, and we have one of the best around!  See pictures below.  Click a picture to make it bigger.  Enjoy!

Palms Parents,


This email contains a ton of important information of things going on at Palms THIS WEEK (Feb 28 - March 3).  Please read below...


1. MARCH IS READING MONTH  - Attached you'll see the March is Reading Month (MIRM) calendar that students will get tomorrow (Monday, February 27) at school.  We will have a Kick-off Assembly with all students and staff talking about our theme, events, and expectations for the month.  This is going to be an awesome month of showcasing our reading skills!  We have a green screen with Rock Band equipment set up in the lobby, please check it out if you come to the school.  Students will get their pictures taken here on Friday's.  We also have tons of other things planned throughout the month so once again, please CLICK HERE to see the calendar.


2. BOOK FAIR - The Book Fair is here Monday through Thursday this week (Feb 27 - March 2). Students will be able to Preview books on Monday, buy books on Tuesday, the Book Fair will be open all day on Wednesday (especially for Grandparents Day), and it will end on Thursday.  If you are unable to come to the Book Fair, please feel free to order online, CLICK HERE.  You can also see the 2nd attachment on this email for information about the Book Fair and the online Book Fair.


3. SUCKER SALE - This goes along with Book Fair.  We will be selling suckers to students at lunch for 25 cents each.  For each sucker that a student buys, they will be entered in a drawing for a FREE BOOK or a FREE POSTER from the Book Fair.  We have alot of these we'd like to give away, so bring in those quarters on Monday and Tuesday!


4. GRANDPARENTS / GRANDFRIENDS DAY - All grandparents or grandfriends attending onWednesday, March 1 during lunch should have RSVP'd last week.  All grandparents or grandfriends are expected to bring their own lunch as lunch is not provided for them.  Please remind them of this.  Here are the grade level lunches that day: 1st grade (11:20-11:55), Kindergarten (11:40-12:15), 2nd grade (12:00-12:35), 3rd grade (12:20-12:55), 4th and 5th grade (12:40-1:15).  3rd/4th/5th grade were switched from their normal scheduled times due to the amount of students getting through the lunch line and through Book Fair with their Grandparent or grandfriend.


Any questions on any of these items, please call the school.  Thank you for all your continued support of Palms Elementary and the East China School District.  #palmsrocks  #PositivityUnknown2Mankind

Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here’s what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love 
for reading:
·      Set the example. Let children see you read.
·      Have a collection of books in your home. Update this collection routinely to keep pace 
with changing tastes and reading skills.
·      Support our school’s Book Fair. Allow your children to choose their own books 
to read. 
Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read right into our school. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits. 
Book Fair dates: February 27- March 2
Shopping hours: 8:30am-4pm
Special activities: Grandparents Day-Wednesday, March 1 During lunch hours
If you are unable to attend the Fair in person,
