Eastvalley’s Education Enrichment Campaign
The EV Foundation Education Enrichment Campaign has been extended one week (Oct. 30-Nov. 3rd) to raise support for many of the learning programs and activities here at the school. If we raise $13,000 during our special PayDay Challenge period (from Friday Oct 27th – Friday Nov 3rd) we will have Pie Day Friday on Friday, November 17th. On Pie Day, all students will receive extra recess time and get a chance to have their name drawn to throw a pie at Mr. Foster and other EV staff members! Thank you for your donations and your support of student learning and achievement here at EV! As of this morning, Tues Oct 31st, we have already raised $5,000 towards our $13,000 PayDay for Pie Day Challenge Goal! Let’s do this Eastvalley Family!!
If you haven’t already done so, head to our website today and donate to put your student’s team in the lead (scroll to the bottom of the page to pick a teacher/team). All classes that meet their classroom goal get extra recess and ice-cream and the top 3 classes will get a prize after the campaign. For more information on how your donations are used, check out the Thermometer Tree.
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. Please donate now.
Help Us Treat Our Troops!
Do you think you’ll get a lot of candy for Halloween? More importantly, could you give a few pieces to our troops overseas?
Even if you only donate a small amount of candy, it will make a big difference for our troops. And this is a very special tradition started by one of our very own Eastvalley Eagles (now at East Cobb Middle). Each of the last five years we have raised over 300 pounds of candy. Help us raise even more this year!
ALL CANDY DUE NOVEMBER 3 – There will be boxes outside the front office for your candy donations.
