Summer 2013We SOARED at Eastover!
Thank you, Eastover families, for helping your children SOAR this summer. We earned over $20,000 for our operating budget (that's $8,000 more than our spring pledges) and had 223 participate this year (that's 48% of our student population). Way to go!
It is great to see all of the SOAR t-shirts around school! A HUGE thank you to our t-shirt sponsors: Salins Group, Bray & Long PLLC, Brixx Pizza, Kumon at Park Road, and Pridemore Properties.

Congratulations, again, to all of our participants and winners!
