    Good Evening Eagle Families,


    Yesterday (11/6) we completed our November safety drill.  The drill went well and we will continue to have safety drills monthly.



    Based on demand, USF has enhanced their camp to provide both in-person and online experiences to deliver even more value to students.   They are offering $5000 in scholarships for low-income students to attend. We would love for East Lake students to get all of these scholarships.
