Good morning,
I hope you all had a great weekend! Just a reminder that Monday, September 20th is a teacher workday. Our faculty and staff will be participating in professional development that day.
Here are this week’s updates and reminders:
1. New 4-H Club: See the included informational flyer for the new Eno River Academy 4-H club for grades 3-5! There will be a Zoom informational session on September 23 at 5pm. Login instructions are included on the flyer.
2. Online Book Fair: The Scholastic Book Fair is back! While the Fair will be held online this fall, we’re so excited to connect our community through the joy of reading and create a fun virtual experience for our kids. Mark your calendars for SEPTEMBER 25 – OCTOBER 8! Our Virtual Fair will feature:

  • A fully virtual Book Fair experience where you and your child can browse nearly 300 titles by grade, meet popular authors, watch book videos, and discover the magic of reading.
  • Direct access to over 5,000 additional titles with family-friendly prices at the Scholastic Store Online
  • Rewards that benefit our school directly—25% of every purchase will go back to our school community.

Check out this letter that includes a virtual tour and book trailers and get a jump on the Virtual Store to stock your bookshelves! Teacher wish lists will be available soon!

3. Covid Testing: I am excited to share that we have partnered with the NC DHHS and Mako Medical to provide Covid testing for our students and staff. I’ve attached a letter with information. I hope you’ll take advantage of this free service.

****The link will ask you several Covid questions, checkboxes for approval, and HIPPA compliance. The registration page will come after you’ve answered those questions and given consent.****
****If your child has Covid-like symptoms, we will notify you and get your consent prior to testing your child. Pre-registration will speed up the process for us.****
