2. PATH Sign Up Genius: Snack Pot Sign Up
Greetings, ERA Community! It is getting to be that time where we can shower our teachers with lots of love. This year we are using a casino theme and would like to have a “snack-pot” for teachers to get their favorite snacks! We are looking for donations that are individually wrapped snacks like what you would buy for trips or team snacks. There are sweets and savory items. All donations can be dropped off at the front offices of either the K-8 campus or the High School the week of April 26th through April 29th. Thank you for your support! PATH

3. Kindergarten PE/Bike Fundraiser: Link to Donate
Help ERA become the 21st school in NC and the first in our area to use the All Kids Bike program! Once funded, the program will provide 22 Strider bikes, helmets, pedal conversion kits, and curriculum to teach all of our Kindergarten students how to ride a bike in school. Coach Pierce hopes we can start in the fall and is super excited about the prospect! 🚴‍♀️🚴🚴‍♂️
