Principal's Message


   My name is Kitty Zumbrink, I am the principal of East School, and it is my pleasure to welcome you to our building. Our first priority is to have safe and happy students. We believe that student-teacher relationships must be formed in order for the most productive learning to occur. This is one of the main reasons that our students are arranged in “families.”

We have attempted to create a trusting and comforting environment for everyone, much like the ones that exist for us outside of the school day. Along with more intense student-teacher relationships, the arrangement of families also permits teachers to be experts in a few subject areas rather than spread thin over the vast curriculum.

As parents, guardians, and grandparents, you can help support your child and the “school family” by encouraging him or her to talk about the day and the learning that occurred. Please also take additional time to help or look over any homework or practice items that may have been assigned. We appreciate the interest that you take in your children and our school system.

    If your schedule allows you to volunteer on a regular basis, or if you would just like to come for a school tour, please contact us at 937-548-2815.

We look forward to making the 2013-2014 school year the best!

What's Happening in Language Arts?

As part of meeting the Third-Grade Reading Guarantee (TGRG), all third grade students were administered a reading diagnostic by mid-September. If the assessment revealed that the student was “not on-track” to be reading at grade level by the end of the year, parents were notified in writing that a reading deficiency was identified.  Intervention using research-based reading strategies targeted at the student’s area of need have begun with the students being placed on a RIMP (Reading Improvement Monitoring Plan).  As evidenced by six years worth of OAA data, we have found our intervention tutoring program to be highly successful.  According to the TGRG, third grade students must meet a minimum score of 392 on the reading assessment to be promoted to fourth grade. 

Have a blessed Thanksgiving,
Miss Kitty
