Dear Community Members:
We are nearing the start of the school year, and there are a number of announcements for you.
For those of you who may be new to the area, the Pemberville Free Fair starts next Wednesday night and runs through next Saturday. I recently spoke with the Mayor of Pemberville, and they are very excited about this year's fair. I look forward to the fair every year for many reasons, but mainly to see former students and their parents. It is truly a homecoming type event!

This year we have purchased the Asus Flip Chromebook which has a touch screen and can function like a tablet as well as a laptop. It will be different in that it does not use Windows, but they are very functional with a much better price point. Those who have used them have had high praise for the devices.
EASTWOOD PRIDE T-SHIRT SALE
The Eastwood Girl’s Basketball team is selling “Eastwood Pride” t-shirts as a fundraiser. They are not sports or year specific which is very nice. The sale has been extended to August 20th.

More floors ready to be poured
Next week the floors will be poured in the central areas including the offices, art room, tech room, and multiple small group instruction rooms.
The elevator shaft in the main academic wing is nearing bearing height. We will finally have handicapped accessibility worthy of our students. Very proud of that!
