Kids Talk Body Safety:
We are very appreciative of the Kids Talk Body Safety program. The program was done very professionally and our children are aware of what body safety is.

Dental Day:
It was fantastic to see so many children take advantage of the Dental Van at EES! They were sharing their big smiles as they exited the dental room! Thank you, parents, for taking advantage of such a wonderful program.

A big thank you goes out to those who joined us at Leroy’s last Wednesday! The food was yummy and the tips were donated to our PTO, which will in turn help classrooms!

You may come to the school anytime to pay for and pick up your bunny orders! They are sorted and ready to go!! Thank you once again for your support! We need all of them sent home by Friday, March 23rd.
