No Frills Fundraiser

The EES PTO is launching our annual appeal, with a goal this year of raising $3000. Please take a few moments to make a donation so that all of our students can continue to benefit from the rich classroom activities, educational field trips, and fun community events that are sponsored by the PTO. 100% of your donation will go towards programs for our students. Link:

Remember that your donation is fully tax-deductible. What’s more, many local businesses will match your contribution, so be sure to ask your employer about this opportunity to raise even more funds for our school.

Thanks For the Help!
Thank you Jenny Sullivan for putting together our School Directory.
Thank you Cassy Gardner For helping beautify our building by planting spruce trees in the urns outside of the school

EES Community Holiday Gifts Project
During this holiday season, if you are looking for an opportunity to give to a family in the EES community, consider purchasing a gift card (Amazon, book store, grocery store, department store, etc.) to donate anonymously. This year Ms. Hathaway (EES School Counselor) and Tyler Sessions (P.E. Teacher) are working to connect EES families in need of some extra financial support with gifts and gift cards for the holidays. This year we are reaching out to the EES community to help provide gift cards to families in need. The gift cards can be sent to school in an envelope where they will be collected by the class teachers, and given to Ms. Hathaway. In order to reach families before the December break, please send in gift cards no later than Monday the 19th of December. Thank you EES community for your generosity during this holiday season.

No Experience Necessary!! Tour Guides Needed
EES parent/guardian volunteers needed to lead potential Kindergarten families on tours of our amazing school. The time commitment for this will be an hour(+/-) twice a month(January-end of March). Times and days of tours are flexible. You will be trained in what to say and the highlights to point out when giving a tour. Looking for 4-6 people to share the responsibility. Please email katelekstutis if you are able to volunteer.
