EEC Campaign

Hi all,

Thank you to those who have donated to the EEC campaign!!  Team Cordova has done amazing!! Please see the note from the foundation below. Hopefully you will be inspired to make a donation to benefit us all at school. Eastvalley is such a fabulous place and hopefully we will continue to be able to offer our students all the extras our foundation provides us.

Eastvalley Families,

The Education Enrichment Campaign is being extended for one week!  We have fallen short of our goal and are currently in jeopardy of not being able to provide some of the supplemental resources and support to our students as we have in the past.  We are inviting you to join us in the Mohawk/Hair-Dye challenge.  If we raise $15,000 during this final Challenge period (from Friday Oct 19th – Friday Oct. 26th ) Mr. Foster will cut his hair in a mohawk and Ms. Kogan will color her hair the school colors!!!! As of this afternoon, Monday, October 22nd , we have already raised $1,600 towards our $15,000 Mohawk/Hair-Dye Challenge Goal! Let’s do this Eastvalley Family!!

New donation forms have been sent home today and you can also find the forms on MTK or donate online at: https://fundlyenterprise.com/Campaign/EEC2018#/  (scroll to the bottom of the page to pick a teacher/team).

The Foundation Education Enrichment Campaign is entirely volunteer driven so that 100% of money raised stays at Eastvalley. The Campaign raises money to fund projects such as the STEM lab, technology upgrades, the Science Lab Teacher, and others that the school could not otherwise afford without private donations. Your contribution is very much appreciated. Thank you for your continued support!!
