Annual Eckstein Band Rummage Sale: Save the Date for April 25!
The Rummage Sale will be Saturday, April 25, 9am-3pm! We need your donations to make this event a success.  Please set aside your gently used clothing, household items, books, music, furniture, sporting goods and more. All donations accepted on Friday, April 24, from 1:30PM to 5:30 PM in the Eckstein Cafeteria. All funds raised go directly to our incredible Eckstein Music Program. Funds are used to help support off-campus music performances, repair and maintain instruments and provide much needed student scholarships. Our goal is to make music accessible to all. If you have any questions, please contact Gretchen Ludwig.

From the Office
If you shop at Office Depot/Office Max, give them Eckstein’s school code – 70107353. Eckstein gets money back every quarter. The Main Office uses this as their ‘supply’ money so we don’t have to use other school money. The checks have ranged from $12 to over $700.00 at times. It is an easy way to give back to the school!
