K8 Weekly Update 5/8

Good morning,
I hope you all had a great weekend! Thank you, families, for making our Teacher Appreciation Week so fantastic!  We feel so fortunate to have your support all year long, but you certainly went above and beyond to make us all feel extra-appreciated last week.
Here are this week’s updates and reminders:
1. May Board of Directors Meeting: The next meeting will be held on 5/9 at 5:30 pm via Zoom. Click here to join the meeting. The June meeting will be held on 6/20.
2. Field Day: We are excited to announce Eno River Academy’s First Annual Interplanetary Games. Get ready for the best day of the year, Field Day! Grades K-5 will be broken down into 6 six teams: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, & Neptune. That being said, students would only be competing against their grade-level classmates (e.g. grade one students would all travel and compete together, grade two would do the same, etc) Here is a sign-up for parents (Cosmic Officers) who are interested in volunteering to help with activities. I look forward to a fantastic day of fun and sportsmanship. More information will be shared in the coming emails! Thank you Bobcat families for your support and I look forward to bringing this tradition of competition and fun for years to come. Coach Pierce
3. Campus Clean-Up: Join us Saturday morning beginning at 9 am to help beautify our campuses! See this linked spreadsheet for jobs to be done.
4. School Supply Kit (Grades K-8): SHOP NOW for your 2023-24 school supplies. Avoid the stores and get all your school supply shopping done online. EPI school supply packs contain all the items and brands our teachers require. Not only is this convenient for you, but it is a fundraiser to help our school. Order now by MAY 23 with our School ID of ENO005 at https://www.educationalproducts.com/shoppacks/
