Halloween Costumes Guidelines
October 31 is a school day and students will attend school on Halloween. Students may wear costumes to school; however, all costumes must conform to the district's dress code policy. They should not be obstructive, revealing, offensive or violent and should not contain sharp or pointed objects or materials that may accidentally strike another person. Students with props that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon, masks, items that would make you or another person uncomfortable or items that disrupt the learning environment will be required to leave them in the office.
Homework Club Begins October 10th.
The Homework Club meets in the library on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 2:35-3:30 pm. We invite all students who would like a little extra help or a quiet place to work to join us. Once you sign in you must stay for the entire hour.
We would like to remind the students that they need to come prepared. The Homework Club does not have books or supplies to loan out so text books, calculators, rulers, etc. must be supplied by the student.
Students also need to remember that this is to be a quiet work time. Students who want to spend the time visiting with friends will be asked to leave and do so somewhere else.
Thank You and Hope to See You There,
Tri-M Halloween Candy Drive
Our chapter of Tri-M, a music honor society, is again doing a Halloween candy drive to benefit Operation Gratitude, who will send the candy in care packages to our troops, veterans, Wounded Warriors, and first responders. No worries if you have leftover candy—we’ll take it off your hands!
In addition to candy, we’re hoping to collect things like travel-sized dental products, granola/energy bars/trail mix (individually wrapped), pens/pencils and pocket-sized spiral notebooks, new plush toys (6” or smaller), individual packets of moist towelettes, pocket-pack kleenex, paracord bracelets, etc.
Plus, Operation Gratitude encloses a thank you note in each care package they send, so if you/your class would like to write letters, they would be greatly appreciated! I’ve attached an information sheet about what to include/omit in the letters. Just give the letters to me and we’ll send them along with our shipment of candy. We’ll take care of everything! :)
For more info on the Halloween Candy Buyback, you can visit https://opgrat.wordpress.com/2013/07/18/halloween-candy-for-the-troops/ .
Any questions, feel free to ask! The deadline for items is November 7th.
Thank you in advance for your support!

What is the Student Transit Pass Pilot?
The Student Transit Pass Pilot is a three-year pilot program sponsored by the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) and funded by Measure BB, a countywide sales tax measure. The Pilot aims to reduce barriers to transportation access to and from schools, and improve transportation options for Alameda County’s middle and high school students. The Pilot is expected to run from August 2016 through July 2019, with the hope of creating the basis for a countywide student pass program.
East Avenue Middle School is one of eleven schools in Alameda County that will participate in this program during the 2016-2017 pilot year. If you’re a full-time student enrolled at East Avenue Middle for the 2016-2017 school year, you are eligible to receive a Student Transit Pass as part of this Pilot.
