The SOAR Committee would like to thank our Eastover students, parents, staff, and friends for their participation and support of SOAR 2012!

The SOAR mission is two fold, to promote reading and math skills during the summer months, and to fund the PTA operating budget.
This summer 189 students participated by logging 9755.75 hours and raising $19,255.60!
The money raised will benefit the entire student body and staff by providing funds for valuable programs and day-to-day expenses such as Teacher Training, Field Trips, Playground upkeep, Staff Appreciation, Special Events, Landscaping, and Office Support and Supplies.

We would also like to recognize and thank our corporate sponsors for their generous support!
