Eastvalley PTA Annual Mother/Daughter Afternoon Out

It's time again for a fun Mother/Daughter afternoon out. Eastvalley girls & their moms are invited to "Paint your own masterpiece" at Canvas by U on Saturday November 11th. Grades K-2 will paint from 11am -12:30 PM and grades 3-5 will paint from 1 - 2:30 PM.

TO REGISTER: Login to MTK first, then click "Online Form" at the top of the page.  (See the screen print at the bottom for instructions.)

The cost is $25 per child (no charge for moms) and includes canvas and supplies. The girls will create individual works of art to take home that afternoon while the moms observe and assist. No experience is needed!

Canvas by U is located at 3000 Johnson Ferry Road, Suite 212, next to the Northeast Cobb YMCA. The reserved room is small, so reservations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. There are only 30 spots per painting session!  

Please RSVP by November 4th by registering and paying via the PTA website. For questions, contact Jessica Loncar at jessicaloncar@gmail.com or T.K. Haff at tkhaff@gmail.com

Eastvalley's Education Enrichment Campaign
 

The EEC campaign is well under way and we appreciate all the donations we have received so far.  If you haven’t already done so, head to our new website today and donate to put your student's team in the lead (scroll to the bottom of the page to pick a teacher/team). All classes that meet their classroom goal get extra recess and ice-cream and the top 3 classes will get a prize after the campaign.  For more information on how your donations are used, check out the Thermometer Tree

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. 

 
Box Tops Contest
 
Thank you to everyone who has already sent in Box Tops.  We have 4 days to go for our fall collection and with 4000 so far we are way behind our goal of 8000.  Keep sending them in and help your class shoot to the top. 
 
The current class leaders are:
Barnes - 583; Moses - 278; & Mathews - 188
 
The class that collects the most tops by the October 20th (this Friday) deadline will win a Kona Ice party!
