Happy Thanksgiving
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow."

-Melody Beattle
Middle School serves the local community
The middle school students recently participated in a service project to benefit families and individuals in need in our community. For a period of one week, each middle school class brought in canned goods and non-perishable foods to share with our neighbors in need at Interfaith Community Services. In total, we brought in over 150 food items!

On Wednesday, November 14, the 7 th & 8 th grade class officers went with Mrs. Peterson, Mrs. Knab, and Mrs. Shetler to deliver our bounty to Interfaith. The employees were very grateful and kind, and they took the time to explain how our donations will benefit those in need. When we got back to school, the class officers discussed how our middle school can continue to support and bless Interfaith in the future. How wonderful it was to see our students being caring Christians!

"I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!"

EAA Students Learn About the Voting Process
On Election Day, Tuesday, November 6, 2018, seven EAA students had the opportunity to serve as poll workers. Student poll workers learn firsthand how elections are run, and they provide much needed support at polling place locations. 

What does it take to be a high school poll worker? California law requires that a student poll worker must:
·          Be a United States citizen or legal permanent resident
·          Be at least 16 years old on Election Day
·          Attend a public or private high school
·          Have at least a 2.5 grade point average
·          Get permission from parents and school
·          Attend a training session

Several of the EAA students who participated are bi-lingual. This gave the students an opportunity to help with those who wished to exercise their right to vote, but English is not the primary language. 

With their day beginning at 6 a.m. and running straight through until 9:30 p.m., the students were tired, but ended their day with a better understanding of the importance of voting and the vital role poll workers play in making elections run smoothly. 

EAA is proud of

It has become a Thanksgiving tradition for the primary grade students to perform a special Thanksgiving program for family and friends. This year was no different. I want to extend a special thank you to Mrs. Z and Mrs. McCary for their efforts in organizing this event even during this stressful. The following are a few pictures that encapsulates the event.
