Student Birthdays

Please be reminded in order to promote an environment of health, wellness, and food safety, we do not permit students to bring in treats for birthdays. We limit classroom food events to four times a year and those are carefully planned to account for food allergies. As a school we recognize student birthdays over the morning announcements and students come up to the office to get a birthday pencil and book. Throughout the school year teachers may ask parents to bring in items for specific classroom events. Should you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to school administration.

School Climate Survey

It is important to us that our school is an inclusive and welcoming community that meets the needs of our families and students. The Easley School Improvement Team is seeking your feedback in order to evaluate and enhance our school climate. We appreciate your honest feedback and thoughtful comments.
