Eastvalley's Education Enrichment 2018

The campaign is well under way and we appreciate all the donations we have received so far.  If you haven’t already done so, please fill out your donation forms and return to school this week or you can donate online at : https://fundlyenterprise.com/Campaign/EEC2018#/  (scroll to the bottom of the page to pick a teacher/team). All classes that make their goal will be invited to a KONA Ice and DJ party upon completion of the campaign. 

Also new this year is our Education Enrichment Campaign Prize Incentives.  For every $100 you donate to the Campaign you will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win one or more of the awesome prizes listed on the prize form ($100 = 1 entry, $200 = 2 entries, $300 = 3 entries, etc.)  The drawing will be held upon conclusion of the campaign.  

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.
