Welcome to East Elementary…The Place to be a Family!
My name is Andy Smeltzer, and I am excited to be the new principal of an amazing community school.
East is one of eight elementary schools in the Lancaster City School District and home to approximately 400 kindergarten through fifth grade students. East Elementary is a true community building with over 90% of our student population within walking distance of the building. The East Elementary playground serves as a gathering place for students and families to visit after school and during the summer months.
East is the home of an incredible staff that is passionate about making a difference in the lives of their students. The staff at East is committed to providing the best instructional practices to help all students achieve future success. The staff at East is committed to providing the care and support each student needs as they develop physically, mentally and emotionally. The staff at East is committed to working with families as we partner together to help each student discover their purpose in life.
We will do our best to provide clear and timely communication throughout the school year to keep everyone involved in the educational process informed. If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to give me a call at the school.
The 2013-2014 school year will be an EXCELLENT year for the staff, students and parents at East, and I am thrilled to see how it will unfold.
