At Eastside Christian School, we understand that changing schools can be a difficult time of transition for young people. When a child enters K-8th during the academic year, we have steps in place to help welcome your child and make his or her initial time at ECS a positive and enjoyable experience. Like you, we want your child to be successful and love coming to school. The supports listed below can help achieve this.
- Your child will be welcomed on the first day of class and paired with a student buddy for the first week.
- You will be contacted by your child’s Room Parent.
- After a few weeks, ECS will follow up with you and your child’s teacher to make sure the transition is going well.
- If desired, the Principal will meet with the family to address any questions/concerns about academics and student life.
Middle-schoolers transferring to ECS will have the additional benefit of meeting regularly with an adult mentor to make sure things are going well both inside and outside of the classroom.
