Outdoor Seating for Lunch
We reached our Go Fund Me goal of raising $10,000! Thank you to everyone who contributed and/or shared the posting. One of our families has a commercial shade tent that be set up over the weekend in the courtyard, making that space much more usable for our students. We are investigating table options to see what is available quickly but will also be good quality and last.

Chromebook One-to-One Technology Agreement Form
Parents be on the lookout for the Parent/Student One-to-One Technology Agreement to be coming home with your child in paper form this week if you have not already completed. This completed form is required of all DPS students who receive a DPS-issued device. Once signed you can return via your child to your classroom teacher. Links to both the One-to-One Technology Agreement and the One-to One Student Device Handbook are in the email version of this message if you would like to review.
PTA News: Update/Membership
We would like to extend a warm welcome to all the new and returning families joining us for the 2021-2022 school year! We look forward to serving Easley students, families and staff during this unique time as we navigate this school year amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Easley PTA strives to support the highest standards of education and student well-being at our school and we are very fortunate to be a part of a community that is dedicated to the success of our students, teachers and staff.
The Easley PTA raises funds to provide a grant for each teacher at Easley Elementary and to fund teacher appreciation programs. In previous years the money was also used to provide fun community events at Easley Elementary and we hope to continue to provide these community events again once it is safe to do so. These events have included Bingo nights, Literacy night, movie night, cultural night, Fall Carnival and much more.
We need your support to help make these things possible! We believe that the strength and involvement of our PTA is an integral part of Easley’s success. Please consider joining the PTA as your support is needed for programming regardless of the learning platform. In addition to your membership dues and generous financial donations which provide much of our funding for the year, it is your involvement in our PTA that makes a real difference. There are so many ways to help and be involved at Easley no matter how much time and energy you can share. Your continued support, whether it is your membership, knowledge, time or resources will make a difference at Easley Elementary.

Duke Football Concessions have been a big fundraiser for Easley in recent years and we are partnering with them again this year. Typically we bring in about $10,000 for the season. Sara Harrell is the PTA chair/ stand manager for this fundraiser. The time commitment for most games is approximately 6 hours. Game times that have been announced are listed with times. Times TBA will be posted as soon as possible. It's it usually am mix of parents and staff who work the games and it really is a pretty fun time and a great way to connect with other parents and staff members.
