Honoring Our Heroes Essay Contest
Eastvalley has kicked off the annual Honoring Our Heroes Essay Program on Veteran's Day, November 12, 2018! The theme of this year's essay contest is "Everyday Heroes: The Power of One". This program provides students an opportunity to identify and write an essay honoring their real life hero, a role model, who has made an impact on their life. This hero can be anyone – a family member, doctor, public safety officer, soldier, teacher, neighbor, friend or even a pet!
Details will be sent home in your student's communication folders. You can also browse the PTA website for further information. The entries may be submitted by January 25, 2019, in the Front Office.
