HAPPY 100th DAY OF SCHOOL!

MARCH 1 - GRADES 4 AND 5 PURIM PLAY - 8:15 AM at EHS

PURIM
We are collecting rice/couscous and mac n'cheese boxes for our Purim celebration on Thursday. We will be using them as noisemakers for our Purim celebration and then donating the food to a local shelter. 
NEWS
FAMILY SCREENING OF BAG IT
MARCH 2 12:30 - 1:15 PM

Come one, come all to see this startling overview of the role of plastic in our lives! The film follows Jeb Berrier, who is admittedly  not  a tree hugger, as he embarks on a global tour to unravel the complexities of our plastic world. What starts as a film about plastic bags evolves into a wholesale investigation into plastic and its effect on our waterways, oceans, and even our own bodies. We see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up to us and what we can do about it. Today. Right now.

EYES ON OWLS
Thank you to Eyes on Owls for bringing their live, "Owls of the World - Who's Watching You" presentation to EHS! We learned all about owls of New England -- what they eat, where they live, how they hear, hunt and call.
