EPO Fundraiser at Fitchburg Farmer’s Market

On Thursday, Sept. 18, EAGLE School volunteers will be serving up yummy frozen custard, donated by Culver’s. Located on E. Cheryl Parkway under the big white tent, we will be part of the market’s annual “Fall Fest” celebration. Along with our fundraiser, there will be live music, free horse-drawn carriage rides, water bottle and tote give-aways, plus fresh food and flowers available from the market vendors. Ecycle for Hope will also be collecting electronic office and household items (under 50 lbs.) in exchange for five food or toiletry donations to the St. Vincent Food Pantry. Show your support of our school and community by joining us at the market, next Thursday, between 3:00 and 6:00 pm.

Fall Mud Run

Students have another chance for mud-run fun on Saturday, September 27, in Verona. Last May, 51 EAGLE students participated in this event which is organized by the Tri4Schools non-profit to promote health and fitness for kids. Tri4Schools donates 75% of registration fees back to the participants’ school for health and fitness purposes, which allowed EAGLE students to raise over $700 for our P.E. program last spring. A new twist to this event–adults can run with their kids in any of the three races! Mud Runs have sold out in the past, so register soon. For more information and to register, click here.

Fun in the Mud for EAGLE

Calling all students! Want to help EAGLE keep the “Fittest School” title for most participants in the Tri4Schools Youth Mud Run? Registration is open for this May 17th event in Verona. Last year, 50+ EAGLE students had a blast in the mud and raised over $700 for new EAGLE fitness equipment. All students are encouraged to participate in the fun, as there are different levels appropriate for ages 3-17. This year, when you designate EAGLE as your school, 75% of your registration fee comes back to our P.E. department for new equipment! Sign up today at
