Eagle Trek 2016 is Coming Soon!
What is Your Super Power?
Here at Evansdale Magnet Elementary this year, our goal for students is to know every day is an opportunity to use their own super powers to make something positive happen — our attention and efforts have enormous potential when we try hard, take pride in our work, and keep our goals in focus.
One of our goals is to launch our annual Eagle Trek Walk-a-thon — our biggest fundraiser of the year —and achieve a goal of raising $55,000 by October 1. Our 500+ Pre-K to 5th grade students will all actively take part in this effort by pledging to collectively walk hundreds of miles, and competing to collect pledges from family and friends, all of which result in fun fitness while also helping with key investments in the school. When you support Eagle Trek, everyone wins — our students and families, and our community.
As you probably know already, Evansdale is one of the most diverse schools in the Lakeside High School feeder school system with a key focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and our growing French Immersion Program. It’s a fact that STEM is becoming a foundation for careers of the future, and fluency in multiple languages is becoming the business acumen of the future. We are proud to be one of the State’s first public immersion schools in French, with students in grades K-3 (so far) spending 50% of the day and subjects in French, and 50% in English. And finally, Evansdale is a Title I school, so investments in Reading Intervention specialists, teacher training, and STEM and Immersion programs have a proven track record of changing the academic success of all students.
Our Fundraiser Kicks Off September 1st!
Please consider giving a tax-deductible gift to your student today. If every student could raise just $110, we would be able to achieve our goal while also helping Evansdale unleash the super power hiding inside your student. An investment in Evansdale is an investment in tomorrow’s leaders: from scientists, pilots, writers and musicians, to artists, athletes and business leaders … all currently populating the hallways of our tremendous school!
