SOAR 2014
Thank you Eastover families for helping your children SOAR this summer. Our Eastover students read a total of 9,702 hours this summer. We earned over $20,000 for our operating budget. We had 209 students participate this year which is 48%of our student population.

It is also 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.

SOAR week took place the week of September 28th-October 3rd. We celebrated all of our hard work. We hope that many of you got to see the AWESOME Hawaiian decor displayed during SOAR week in the front hallway. We would like to thank Mark Middlesworth of Extravaganza for his generous donation of these props.

Congratulations to the 5th grade for being the grade with the highest percent participation (65%). They will celebrate with a popsicle party and 15 minutes of extra recess. Ms. Dilworth’s class read the most hours of any class in the school (799.5 hours). They will celebrate with a popcorn and movie party.
