Eastridge Elementary finished in the top 20 schools in the state for our Jump Rope for Heart Program. Congratulations to Mr. Oliver Helfrich, physical education teacher, for his outstanding work and commitment to this worthy cause. Thanks to the students and parents for raising money for the Heart Association.
Eastridge Elementary School is participating in the NFL’s Fuel Up to Play 60 Program this year. A select group of 3rd and 4th graders are leading the effort and helping to plan the year-long awareness campaign for FUTP 60. Those students were able to go to the Indiana Farm Bureau Center where the Indianapolis Colts practice. The students were able to enjoy an evening of fun football related physical activities and games on the Colt’s indoor practice turf as well as see and eat what a healthy meal looks like. Check out FuelUptoPlay60.com to sign up your student and join the Eastridge Team!
For the health of your child, Marion County Health Department, MSD Warren Township, and Community Health Network will be offering Warren students FREE FluMist vaccines the last week of October through the first two weeks of November. There will be NO CHARGE for the FluMist regardless of insurance coverage or self-pay.
FluMist will be for the students of Warren Township only (no other family members). *Children with chronic health issues such as asthma and diabetes must obtain their flu vaccine from their healthcare provider. **children under the age of 9 years may require a second dose of the vaccine at a later date, and families will be notified if this is the case for their child.
More information and consent forms will be sent home with your student when we return from Fall Intersession!
Thank you to the Health Department and Community Health Network for making this a possibility.

You are invited to be a PAC Parent!
Does your child ever take too much time to do homework… need an extra boost of self-esteem…use social media…or choose not to follow your directions? As a parent, do you ever feel like you could use some support from other parents who have the same concerns with their children as you? If so, you are encouraged to register for our upcoming PAC (Parents are the Core) sessions. Throughout the 2014-15 school year, six sessions will be offered for parents. Topics include: how to determine what makes your child special and strategies for building these strengths, homework tips, discipline, your child and social media, and information Warren Township parents need to know. The sessions will be held from 6:00-7:30 p.m. at school throughout the school year. Free supervised activities will be offered for children, ages 5-12, who attend with their parents. PAC Kids is open only to children whose parents are attending PAC. Activities will include crafts, computer games and activities, game nights, gym activities, fun projects, snacks, and entertainment. If you are unable to attend the session at our school, the topics will be offered at every other Warren Township elementary and intermediate academy. Call the school office or check the Warren Township website for this information. PAC Web Page>>> Contact the school office to register for a session.
