Community Connections Update: Thank you to all who attended last week’s parent informational sessions. Our meeting agenda is linked here. We are currently in need of parent volunteers for pantry upkeep and assistance with community links. Contact Morgana Hover (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Megan Riggs (email@example.com) if you are interested in helping!
Calendar of Events: This document was shared at the last Community Connections meeting. It is a brief overview of the main events, K-12, ERA hosts yearly for our students.
Donations for Food Pantry:
Sign-Up Genius for donations to the HS and K-8 food pantries: Both pantries need items on an on-going basis. Any assistance is appreciated! Donations of lunch orders through My Hot Lunchbox are also accepted.
Senior Parents Survey: If you are a parent of a current Senior, please complete this survey by Friday, September 23 to provide information about what types of Senior specific events would be enjoyed by a majority of Senior students.
The student council’s Kick-A-Thon is coming up on October 1st from 1-4pm! Admission is $5 a person, but it’s free for volunteers! There will be lots of fun games, a soccer tournament, Kona Ice, face painting and more! We can’t wait to see you all there!
Below you will find a form to pledge money for this event. 3/4 of the proceeds of this event will go to Soccer Without Borders!
