Summer Camps Offer Something for All

EA Summer Camps offer something to keep every student engaged and entertained this summer.  Students can learn sign language, talk about books, study engineering principles in a fun-filled environment, create a newspaper, and discover how to be the babysitter that everyone wants to hire.

But, that's not all!  Students can put on a play, improve reading skills, prep for ACT and SAT tests, hone photoshop skills, print in 3-D, and play with LEGOS to design, build, and program.

There is still more. Check it all out HERE!.

Jane's Garden

On Thursday afternoon, May 17th, our school community gathered on the campus lawn to celebrate the life of Jane Schock and dedicate a special garden in her memory.  Mrs. Schock, who preferred to be called Jane by all at EA, passed away in February after a short illness. In addition to the valuable contribution she made for 23 years as a member of our maintenance team, Jane was our "gardener-in-chief." Because she so lovingly tended the beautiful flowers that grace our campus in the spring and summer months, the EA community agreed that a garden was a most appropriate way to honor Jane. You can watch the ceremony HERE on the blog.
