Plan to engage your inner artist by joining other EAGLE families at the March EPO community-building event. On Sunday, March 9, from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm, have fun with a glass fusing or paint-your-own pottery project at Fired Up Pottery in Monona, and 30% of your purchase will come back to our school when you mention EAGLE. There are no studio fees; you simply purchase the pottery piece or glass project base. All supplies for decorating are provided and included. Fired Up Pottery is located at 4112 Monona Drive. (NOTE: Gift certificate purchases count, too, and if you can’t make it on March 9, you can order by phone and mention EAGLE to generate the donation.)
Wow–so many EAGLE families came out to the Middleton Chipotle last week! Muchas gracias to all who participated in this event; it was great fun to see everyone there. In addition to enjoying good food and great company, we raised $378 for our school! Don’t forget–we have another chance to gather with EAGLE friends over burritos, tacos, and guacamole later this month. Plan to come to the Shorewood Chipotle (4000 University Ave.) on Thursday Feb. 27, from 4:00 to 8:00 pm, mention our fundraiser at the register, and once again, 50% of your purchase will come back to EAGLE. See you there!
After the second week of our annual Box Tops contest, we’ve collected 3,430 Box Tops worth $343.00 towards equipment for the new EAGLE playground. In the race between homerooms, the Intermediate A Unit has moved into first place, with the 5/6 Bs hot on their heels. With only two and a half weeks to go, bring in those Box Tops soon! The contest ends on Feb. 19.
The first February EPO community-building event will take place NEXT WEEK—Thurs., Feb.6, from 4:00 to 8:00 pm, at the Middleton Chipotle restaurant (at Old Sauk & Junction Roads). Just bring in the attached voucher, show it on your smartphone or tell the cashier you’re there for the fundraiser, and 50% of your purchase comes back to EAGLE! Anyone can earn the 50% donation (just please don’t solicit customers on-site), so spread the word and give a flyer to your friends, neighbors, and co-workers. See you there!
NOTE: there is a second opportunity to dine out for EAGLE at the Shorewood Chipotle on Feb. 27, 4-8 pm.

Our annual EAGLE Box Tops Contest began on Monday, Jan. 13, and will run through Wednesday, Feb. 19. Last year we raised almost $2,200 to fund equipment for the new playground. This year’s proceeds will also be for the new playground, and we need your help to reach our goal of $2,000.
Any homeroom that collects at least 2000 Box Tops will earn a party (pizza, ice cream, donut, or other). Last year, seven homerooms earned parties.
If you have any questions or would like to help with the contest, contact Dan Siehr at
