Parent Engagement Opportunities

                                               WELCOME EASTSIDE FAMILIES!

Parents/guardians of Eastside students are strongly encouraged to stop in, visit and check-out some of the resources we have available for student use.  Our goal is to help parents & guardians understand what their children are learning so that they are better able to help at home with homework and projects. We know that parent involvement makes a big difference in the achievement and success of our students.  The Title I Parent Resource Center also has a lending library for parents, in which a variety of parenting topics are covered.  We offer information on various topics from parenting to discipline to how to help your child with homework. A community resource directory is also available for Douglas County.  Some of the resources that are housed in Eastside's Parent Resource Center include:  

  • Phonics electronic 
  • Test preparation resources
  • Study Buddy tutor devices
  • Learning Palette (Math)
  • Geo Safari laptop electronic (for 3rd - 5th grade students) 
  • Audio books (playaways)
  • laptop computers (for a two week checkout after an Orientation with the Parent Outreach facilitator)

Our Parent Resource Center is open on Mondays from 7:45 a.m.- 3:15 p.m. All other days are by request- please see Dr. Mary Jackson or the office staff.  It is also open during evening workshop times. The PRC is located in room 129, in the 5th grade hall. Please call Dr. Mary Jackson at 770-651-3885 or the office at 770-651-3800 to make an appointment.
