Easley Weekly Update

Everything You Need to Know for the coming week.

August 28, 2022

a note from the principal

I hope everyone had a great weekend. It's hard to believe we are entering week seven of the quarter. It's been wonderful watching how much our students have grown and learned in just six short weeks. We are looking forward to a strong finish during these last three weeks of the quarter. Please be sure your child is reading each night. Ensuring your child reads every night is the most important thing you can do to partner with us in helping your child grow as a reader.

Labor Day Holiday

There is no school next Monday, in recognition of the Labor Day. I hope everyone enjoys the holiday weekend!

Scholastic Book Fair

It is almost Book Fair time! Shopping starts Monday 8/29 for all. Check out this letter for everything you need to know: https://bit.ly/3Tj2TvL. Remember we will be open 8/30 (Tuesday evening) from 5:30-6:30. Want a cash-less option for your child? Set up an e-wallet today on our website: https://www.scholastic.com/bf/easleyelementaryschool1

From the PTA:

Duke concessions

Do you want to help support our school while bonding with other Easley families, teachers, and staff? We still have openings to work concessions at some upcoming Duke Football home games – including the first game on Friday, September 2nd. Easley PTA receives a portion of the sales. More information and a sign-up can be found at this link. If you have any questions please contact Sara Harrel at sara.harrel@gmail.com.

Easley Fall Festival

Planning for our Fall Festival/Carnival on October 15th from 1 pm to 4 pm is well underway. However, it would greatly help our co-chairs if we could get a bit of information from you. Please take a minute to fill out this survey to let us know if you will be attending, if you can volunteer, or if you have contacts to vendors or party rentals. Thank you!
