Jim Hoelscher - 4th Grade Teacher
Phone 659-1560
Welcome to Eastwood School for the 2014-2015 school year.  My name is Jim Hoelscher, and I will be your child’s 4th grade teacher.  I would like to welcome you and your child and let you know that I am really looking forward to the new school year.  We are very proud of Eastwood School and we are glad you will be joining us.


I have been a teacher for 35 years.  I earned my bachelors degree at Eastern Michigan University and my masters degree at Western Michigan University.  Before teaching, I was a community education director and a coach.  I was a teacher at Thomas Sumter Academy in South Carolina before moving back to Michigan.  I was a 6th grade teacher at Sturgis Middle School for many years before becoming a 4th grade teacher at Eastwood School. 


My wife, Donna, and I raised three children; daughters, Jeanette and Monica, and son Pat.  All of my kids grew up in Sturgis, and went to Sturgis Public Schools.  I have two grandsons:  Mason Patrick Hoelscher and Brady James Hoelscher, as well as a new granddaughter Rylah Jean Hoelscher.


A new school year is always an exciting time.  The staff and students at Eastwood are very helpful and willing to make you feel comfortable.  In no time at all you will be settled in and making new friends.  I am looking forward to the first day of school, and ready to get off to a great start.


Below is a list of materials you will need to get started.


-Gym shoes

-Pencils and pens

-School lined paper

-Two boxes of tissues per student (for our supply for the year)

-100 sheet spiral notebook

-3 ring binder and zip up pencil pouch to put in 3 ring binder
