Have You Heard of Classcraft?
Classcraft is a brand new platform we implemented this school year. Classcraft is available for free to all students, 3rd-12th grade!

Classcraft adds game-like features to a student’s instruction plan, motivating and engaging them in a brand new way. Students get to customize an avatar, complete quests with their coursework embedded, work to exhibit positive behaviors for points, and so much more!

Classcraft is a teacher driven platform that assigns a student’s coursework in the form of a quest! Each quest is comprised of a fictional story, a task, and points at every turn!
Announcing EPIC’s First Ever Classcraft Story Competition!

All EPIC students are eligible for the competition even if they aren’t currently using Classcraft! Submissions will be judged in three categories: 3rd-5th grade, 6th-8th grade, and 9th-12th grade.

Social Media This Month: Veterans and Gratitude
November brings two very important holidays: Veterans Day and Thanksgiving. This year, you have the opportunity to participate in our virtual celebrations on social media. Below, read how you can be a part of some very special moments.
EPIC Celebrates Veterans Day

EPIC students are invited to write a letter to their favorite veteran (or to veterans in general) thanking them for their service. You can submit either a photo of the written letter or a word document.

You can also submit a photo of your veteran along with the letter, but it is not required.

Submission deadline is November 9th.
EPIC Celebrates Thanksgiving

This is an opportunity for students to share who or what they are thankful for this Thanksgiving in their own voice. It's really simple and we hope to hear from many students.

Click on the button below and you will find all the instructions for your student to easily record a short video that will be featured on our EPIC social media pages!

Submission deadline is November 23rd!
If you have questions OR would like to submit student photos/stories to for EPIC's social media pages, please email kayla.pelt@epiccharterschools.org.
