Message from Mrs. Tarasiuk and Mrs. Sosin 4/12/19

We may not feel true spring in the air outside, however the walls inside of Einstein are bustling.

We are excited in anticipation of several upcoming events and activities. Our staff has begun planning our Kindness Countdown in May and an incredible challenge we will be asking students to “unlock”. We know they will be excited when they find out what our all-school challenge entails. Einstein students will also be creating their own tie-dye shirts to show their team spirit for Field Day.
These are great opportunities to create memories and there are many more to come!
