United Way needs Our Support

Agendas Go Home Today

This year our school calendar books / agendas will go home free of charge to every student in grade 1 to 8. These agendas are used as a common communication tool between home and school.  In conjunction with the school blog:  eastwoodeagles.wordpress.com you will be up to date on all happenings atEastwoodSchool. 

 It is important for us to note that the agendas were purchased at a greatly reduced cost. It was investigated as to whether a Canadian company had a comparable product for this cost. We were not successful.  If you have any leads as to a Canadian based company that can offer a similar product for our money we would be proud to support it. We apologize for any inconvenience and will be sure to add our Canadian based Holidays to our agendas.

Please communicate with our teachers through use of the agenda book.
