Open House 2016

What a great event this was! Thank you for all for taking your personal time to come and visit your child’s pride in their work and daily environment. Students toured their families around the classroom to show them some highlights we have learned and created. In addition there was an EBS choir performance along with the spectacular school Art Show in which each child in the entire school had a piece of art displayed! (Special thanks for all our fine artists volunteers who not only helped create the art, but help to organize and mount student art for display!). Check out the gallery of pictures that were captured this evening!

Yearbook Sale

You don’t want to miss this! Yearbooks went on sale. If you are in question whether to buy one or not, I would recommend purchasing one for your child not only to hold on to the memories, but also as the children LOVE when these arrive in class and will be given time in the last week to get signatures! I plan to buy one for my own child along with one for myself! (I have a collection of yearbooks since I was in Kindergarten). See the flyer that went home this week (also pictured below) for ordering information!

We Have Heart Book Collection

We collected 53 books this week! What a great start! I’m hoping EBS can collect 500 books to give to Ms. Emily’s school! These books will give them reading material over the summer, an opportunity they wouldn’t have otherwise! Thank you for being so generous!

Recycling Success!

Our school has made a great effort to improve on our recycling education and efforts. Over the past few months our school has moved up from a district rank of 75 to a rank of 11! We are continue to learn more about how to recycle! Hooray for EBS!
