Eastern Elementary: Recess Relay

Eastern Elementary School held its Recess Relay April 11, 2014, in collaboration with the American Cancer Society.  Fundraising efforts included profits made from concession sells during District Governor’s Cup, classroom penny drive, and selling ACS’s “Walking to Celebrate feet” with honoring survivors and remembering those lost.  The total raised for The American Cancer Society was $765.62. 



There will be a “Super Saturday” offered in the HCHS Media Center on April 19th from 9-12. There will be free breakfast and some other free items to help you succeed!  Bring your parents and your W-2s and we will fill out the FAFSA Forecaster to get you comfortable with the process AND it will give you an estimate of how much money you may receive for school!  So sign up outside of the office or the College and Career Center!  If you have any questions or need a different time, see Mrs. Tingle.
