Fall Break
 
 
Fall Break for all Cobb County public schools will take place September 24 - 28th. 
 
Box Tops for Eastvalley
 
Box Tops are still being collected, so send in yours to ensure your student's class wins our collection contest. The class with highest number wins a pizza party!
 
And remember, Eastvalley is always looking for Box Top donations. It's a great way to support education and it tremendously benefits our school. Please send your Box Tops in an envelope or sandwich bag clearly marked with your child's name, grade and teacher's name. Also, stop by www.BTFE.com to learn about other ways you can earn even more cash for Eastvalley.

Changes for Publix Partners

Did you know giving to Eastvalley is as easy as shopping at some of your favorite stores? And Publix has made changes so that donating is even simpler! 

Beginning October 1st, you no longer need your Eastvalley/Publix card while shopping. Simply sign up as a Publix Partner, select our school, then enter your phone number at checkout to help earn money for Eastvalley. And every penny counts. Just last quarter, Publix Partner donations totaled $206.91 (and since Eastvalley partnered with Publix we’ve raised more than $29,009!).

Thank you for doing all you can for Eastvalley.

YMCA Comes to ASP

Let's get fit Eastvalley! We are excited to announce the start of a grant-funded YMCA rotation joining our after school program (ASP) Monday through Thursday. Please look for the information letter and permission form sent home last week so your child can participate in the Fit For Life program offered for FREE for students who participate in our ASP. Your child will enjoy 45 minutes of high energy games with an educational component designed to get kids up and moving and living healthy. This is a great opportunity being brought to our school! The kids are sure to learn healthy habits and have fun at the same time.

Don't forget to thank the ASP staff for the hard work and training they put in to make this happen!
