Eagle Tree

The Eagle Tree is once again up in the office! The Eagle Tree is a giving tree that contains the wishes of children from our school that need some extra help this Christmas. Each Eagle has a gift or clothes size for children at CFIE that are in need. Please consider adopting an Eagle to make someone's holiday a little brighter! Last year the generosity was amazing and all of the children on the tree were adopted and had an amazing Christmas! Also, if you know a business that may be willing to donate, please let us know! Any questions, please contact Mrs. Askins, our school counselor, atjennifer.askins@onslow.k12.nc.us . Unwrapped gifts are due back to the school by 12/9/15. Thank you!
