Eastside High School - PTSA


Welcome to the PTSA page!

Welcome to Eastside High School! I hope this year is an exciting year for our community of students, staff, parents, and alumni. We realized recently that over half of our EHS student population has never experienced EHS at its best! Our staff did an awesome job serving our students last year with all the challenges of a pandemic but too many of the extras and community building things were missing. We are looking forward to getting re-acquainted and supporting our students alongside you. PTSA actively works with school administration, staff, students, and the SIC to help enrich our learning environment in a multitude of ways. As you can imagine it takes hundreds of small actions on the part of the community parents! We hope you will check out all the ways offered during the year to be involved. 

Please consider joining PTSA, it is the first step to being a part. PTSA never asks our students to sell anything to family and friends. Our biggest source of revenue allowing us to fund instructional grant requests from teachers is Eagle Bites. Click on the volunteer Sign Up Genius to see where you can volunteer for the school store.

Don't forget to check out our Memberhub Store where you can Opt IN with financial support to fund teacher grants and purchase some great EHS branded gear.

If I can help you or your student, please do not hesitate to contact me. My email is vasaysthis@gmail.com. I look forward to working with you to support our students and staff this year!

Eagle Bites: Welcome to a new year of Eagle Bites! Eagle Bites is snack shop open during all lunch periods any day school is in session. Volunteers man the store, selling snacks and drinks. It is a great way to observe your student inside the school building!

We ask that you select a day of the week and a week of the month and sign up for all the dates that fit that category. Some selections will mean only 2/3 times per year and others will be 8/9 times during the year. With only scheduling 2 volunteers each shift, it is very important that you are present or find a replacement for your shift. Because there is money involved, if you are not there, the store can not open! It is disappointing to the students and disruptive to the continued success of the store. Eagle Bites is the only fundraising activity for PTSA at EHS and allows for teacher instructional grant requests to be funded. 100% of the proceeds stay inside the EHS building to help create a better learning environment for our students!
