We will collect kids toys and games for the United Way and scarves, gloves, mittens, socks, and stocking caps for “Santa’s Semi.” Items collected for Santa’s Semi will go to a wide array of charities in the Riverbend area, such as Community Hope Center and the Oasis Women’s Shelter, to name a few. Have a Merry Christmas and help us help others! Please have your items in no later than next Wednesday, December 10th.

This dance is a reverse prom where students wear sweat pants and t-shirts and we will crown a freshmen prince and princess. Tickets for the dance will go on sale next week and cost $10, which includes a MORP shirt to wear to the dance. If you plan on taking a guest that’s not from EAWR, guest forms can be picked up outside of Mrs. Timmins and Mr. Daniels's rooms. This is a fundraiser for prom so we hope that everyone will attend.
