Principal's Welcome

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Welcome to East Side Elementary School! Let me begin by introducing myself. My name is Mr. Schoettmer and I will be your principal! I am thrilled to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year and I am looking forward to meeting new faces, revisiting with familiar ones, as well as hearing all about your summer adventures. For those of you who have not met me, I taught 2nd grade at East Side Elementary and have been on the HSMS administration team for the past 4 years. This is my first year as the Principal at East Side Elementary. I am very excited to work together to make this a fabulous new school year!

East Side Elementary School administration and staff, with the support of parents and the community, seek to provide all students the resources to gain knowledge and become lifelong learners in an environment that encourages a positive self-concept and promotes excellence. We are proud of our dedicated, experienced staff and enthusiastic learners!

Our vision is Lancer PRIDE. Our students strive to be Positive, Respectful, Improving, Disciplined and Engaged at all times.

As our world continues to change and the complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to ensure that our children reach their potential. We believe that all of us within the school and the community must work together to ensure success for all our students.

With that in mind, you are invited to be an active participant at East Side Elementary. Whether you are a classroom volunteer, a member of the Pride Boosters or a Community Sponsor, you are encouraged to be involved. Parent participation in your child’s school coincides with a greater likelihood of academic success for your child.

Please don't hesitate to contact me at any time.
