Thank you, parents and students, for making Eddlemon Adventist School  what it is – a great place to be! You are loved and appreciated.

THANK YOU
On behalf of all the teachers and staff, “Thank You” so much for the many expressions of love on Valentine’s Day. Parents, you and your children are valued. The staff at Eddlemon Adventist School love having you as part of our school family. Working together as a team, we can bring great things to EAS.

SPRING WEEK OF PRAYER
Week of Prayer is next week (February 24-28). Our speaker is Pastor James Reynaert from Fletcher Academy. To help you in your planning, we will begin each morning at 8:00 in Colburn Hall. Please pray for God’s continued blessings on our school as Pastor Reynaert leads our students to a closer walk with Jesus.

HAT DAY
Get ready to enjoy a fun Spirit Day on Friday, February 28! The official title is “Crazy Hat Day”. You have plenty of time to get your crazy hat ready. We want the day to be filled with lots of fun and laughter. Those who participate will not be required to wear a uniform. Let’s try to make this a day with 100% participation.

Prayers will be greatly appreciated.

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.
