Principal’s Points:
God is good! All the time! Good things are happening at school: Tutoring, Spanish classes, and two more students are joining our student body. They are two brothers: eighth-grader, Kenai Robinson, and a second grader, Kaiden Robinson. All the time, God is good!
 
Free Math Tutoring
The time is Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3-4 PM in Colburn Hall. Nine students came for Math tutoring this Tuesday. Mr. Bob said that he would like to have forty students! He is happy to offer his help free of charge. He would welcome other adults to also volunteer to help tutor students in Math so they could be helped quickly. He daily comes to Mrs. Johnson’s ⅘ grade Math class to assist. Thank you Mr. Bob!

JANUARY SPIRIT DAY
We will celebrate 100 days of school on Spirit Day Friday, January 31. In preparation for our 100th day celebration, we ask all students to join the fun by wearing an item of clothing that has 100 objects attached. This notice is being given early so that hopefully you have time to begin preparing for this fun event.
 
FUNDRAISER 
It’s just this simple: If someone comes in and purchases mulch, and mentions our schools name when ordering, CJ Mulch and More LLC Team will donate 50 cents per yard ordered back to our school. There is no limit, there is no strings attached. They have made this a never ending agreement. A brochure will be sent home with more information.

INCLEMENT WEATHER
Watch WSPA channel 7 for potential school closings.  EAS does not automatically follow Spartanburg County.  There are times the county closes for reasons that do not apply to us.  However, the safety of our students and families are always of utmost concern.  If it is unsafe to be on the roads where you live, please remain at home where it is safe.
** If you need the services of the daycare, please also watch WSPA channel 7 for their daycare closings.  The daycare may not necessarily coincide with our hours during inclement weather.
