Hello EIMS Families
First and foremost, I want to extend a huge congratulations to our cast and crew of Shrek the Musical, Jr! Our actors and actresses were phenomenal and displayed such amazing talent. In addition, the stage crew made seamless transitions between acts. I would also like to acknowledge Beth Jenks, Katie Keller, and Will Ruiz for all of their hard work and dedications to our students in making this production something to brag about!
Also, our PBIS team of teachers organized the "Ninja Warrior" event that took place last Friday. Students participated in an obstacle course that tested their strength, agility, balance, and endurance. Furthermore, our participants and the audience members learn valuable skills such as team-building and creating a positive environment that demonstrated great school spirit!
As I said before (and will probably say again!) I feel very fortunate to work at EIMS with such an amazing group of kids! Thank you for all of your continued support. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

A Message from The EI Education Foundation
The EI Educational Foundation's mission is to fund both student and staff requests for items that are beyond the reach of the budget. Our vision is to raise enough funds to fill every request we receive. Additionally, we fund as many scholarships at year end for our senior students as possible. The only requirement is that the staff nominate a deserving student for something that they may not otherwise be recognized for.
You do not need to be an alumni to be a member of the Foundation. We do not have a non-for-profit status, as yet but it is one of our goals. Currently, we host two fundraisers per year, a community garage sale. Other fundraisers that we hope to establish are giving campaigns and euchre tournaments. We are currently looking for new members to continue the work of our foundation. There is no membership fee and meetings are in the school calendar once per month on Mondays at 6:30pm in central office.
