What's Happening at East?
In 1978, the National Art Education Association began the National Art Honor Society program to inspire and recognize students who have shown an outstanding ability and interest in art. The National Junior Art Honor Society strives to aid members in attaining the highest standards in art scholarship, character, and service, and to bring art education to the attention of the school and community.The following students at East Lee have been selected into the National Junior Art Honor Society!

Mr. Webb's 8th Grade Science class students were strengthening their use of the triple-beam balance, digital scale, and Erlenmeyer flask in preparation for the coming school year. They had to weigh a series of specimens (including the problem of weighing water by itself) on both scales and compare their results. Once that was complete, they had to write their thoughts in a paragraph of what may have caused the differences (errors) between the triple-beam balance and the digital scale. Lastly, they had to use "big-picture thinking" to decide if those errors could affect an experiment that they are working on. If so, what could they do as scientists to combat those errors.
Ms. Morrison's 6th Grade Students learned about Multiple Intelligence and
Learning Styles, students participated in "Huddle" collaboration
strategy. Students met with different configurations of classmates and shared
their learning styles and study tips.
