Honoring Our Heroes

We are still accepting entries for this year's  Honoring Our Heroes Essay Program which kicked off on Veteran's Day.

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! Additional details can be found online. The entries must be submitted by January 17, 2018 in Eastvalley's in the Front Office.

Winners will be recognized with exciting awards and the first place winner from each grade level will be recognized at the East Cobb Council level which has 35 schools participating from our area. For further details, contact  Ms. Lekha Sengupta at lekharup@yahoo.co.in

Thank you Stephanie Miller! Stephanie is a longtime member of the Eastvalley tribe. She's something of a Jill of all Trades as she's done it all from management of our behind the scenes website (Membership Toolkit) to working on the Education Enrichment Campaign since its inception. Last year she even helped with the labor-intensive task of compiling our always helpful school directory. Stephanie has served in leadership roles for the Foundation and has been a favorite Art Print parent volunteer for some time now - she's run the gamut of positions at Eastvalley and we're so happy to have Stephanie in our school family.
