The Tri4Schools Mud Run on May 18 was a huge success, selling out with 750 runners. EAGLE had more participants (50 students!) than any other school, and will receive a #1 Fittest School trophy in the fall! The Mud Run was an enjoyable community-building experience for parents and runners alike, while earning more than $700 for our PE program. Check out these fantastic professional photos. Special thanks to Steve Helstad for coming out to cheer on the kids.

Special congratulations to Conrad H. who has remained undefeated in the last two tournaments.
We extend our special thanks to Jared M. and Andrew B. for officiating and running the tournament. We could not have done it without them! Also, many thanks to Diane T. for helping with set-up and clean-up.
Finally, if any parents would like to learn this card game, please email Dan at email@example.com. If we have enough interest, we are hoping to host a Magic The Gathering learning event at the Great Dane.
The EPO has organized one last community-building vendor event on the last day of school. To kick off the summer, plan to stop by the Fitchburg Dairy Queen anytime on June 4 (early dismissal at 11:20 am) to join EAGLE classmates and parents for lunch or a treat—or both! Dairy Queen is generously donating 10% of ALL purchases on June 4 to EAGLE. Hope to see you there!
Carole extends her sincere appreciation to all parent volunteers, staff members, businesses, and families who made this year’s Spring FUNdraiser such a huge success. Special “thanks” to Diane Tautges, Jean Parks, and all of the committee chairs for their dedication and diligence in coordinating this fun-filled evening. The event, which raised over $23,000, was very well attended, with enough food, fun, and festivities for everyone! EPO has generously elected to allocate the proceeds from this and other fundraisers throughout the year as follows: $8,000 for scholarships, $3,000 for computer reserves, and $20,000 for playground reserves.
Did you know? . . . In addition to these allocations, the EPO’s community-building fundraisers have enabled them to purchase some much appreciated items for our school. They have donated a popcorn machine that will be used at a variety of school functions, a file server that will expedite login and retrieval on our computer system, and a set of historical fiction books for our library’s younger readers. We are so fortunate to have such an enthusiastic and hard-working parent group! Thank you! Thank you!
Our Spring Family FUNdraiser, which takes place on May 3, from 5:30 to 9:00 pm, includes a spectacular silent auction. Click below to preview the list of items. Come early! Bid often!
