PTA Reflections 2019
Welcome to Eastside High School! I hope this year, the 50th Birthday of Eastside, is an exciting year for our community of students, staff, parents, and alumni. Our PTSA wants both parents and students to feel welcomed and involved. So, take some time to explore, ask questions and find the organization that can use your talents!
If you would like to join PTSA or volunteer to help, there are links on this website. One of the greatest needs we have for volunteers is in our school store “Eagle Bites”. We have positions/shifts open for Lunch Team Leaders, Lunch Team Members, Supplies Pick Up, First Friday Breakfast, and Substitutes. Click here for more information or to sign up for a shift. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090844aca82aaa8-eagle3
We publish a monthly e-blast newsletter. In order to receive this, we need your permission to use your email address. The place to sign up for this is on the website to the right under “PTSA E-News”. Please take time to complete since it is a great way to stay informed!
If I can help you or your student, please do not hesitate to contact me. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to working with you to support our students and staff this year!
National PTA Mission Statement: PTA's mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.

Printed forms may be found in the front office and forms and payment may be: 1) dropped off at the Front Office or 2) mailed to EHS PTSA Membership, 1300 Brushy Creek Road, Taylors SC 29687. You may also submit membership forms and payment online by clicking the “PTSA Online Membership Form and Payment” button on the right.
“Opt Out” Donation Drive: This year, we are trying to raise the funds we need for staff and classroom support at the beginning of the year instead of asking before each event or need. If you would like to “Opt Out” and donate now to help us meet our goals, click on the “PTSA Donation Drive” link in the blue Resources box above and complete the form to send in to school! We accept cash, check, & credit card or you can donate online by clicking on the "PTSA Online Membership" link above. You can become a Golden Eagle, Bald Eagle, or Birthday Eagle level donor today!
PTSA's Reflection Program: This national theme for 2019-2020 is “Look Within!” Create an original piece of work in one of six categories: Musical Composition, Dance Choreography, Film Production, Photography, Visual Arts, or Literature. For more information, click on the button to the right. Last year, we had a winner at the National Level, and all winners at the district, state and national levels can win valuable awards from our PTSA!
