One Great way to earn money for the school is by saving box tops. You can get box tops from multiple sources such as cereal, frozen foods, paper products and much more. The EGPTO does a great job of collecting the box tops redeeming them for money. The EGPTO's first box top pickup will be Monday, October 24th. So over the four day weekend gather all of those box tops and make sure you bring them back on Monday the 24th.
With our ever-growing population of students, the board and community wanted more extracurricular opportunities. This has been a goal expressed by the board for the last couple of years. Starting last year the board, teachers, community members and administration worked on a Strategic Plan (5-20 year goals) and then Action Plan (1-2 year goals). In our Action Plan (Strategic Plan and Action Plan can be found on the schools website under "About EG" the Strategic Plan) the board and community had on there more extra curricular activities. This year it became a reality.

On September 26th, the first grade celebrated Johnny Appleseed Day. We made applesauce in our classroom and we learned that "Johhny Appleseed" was a very kind person who traveled in his bare feet while he planted apple seeds for all to enjoy.
