  • Kindergarten/TK/New Student Orientation

    We welcome all of our new incoming Kindergarten and TK families, as well as new EBS families to attend Orientation on Friday, August 29th at 10:30 am in the MPR. Principal Sloan as well as the Kindergarten/TK teachers will be presenting important information. This is also where Kindergarten and TK room class lists will be made available for the first time. Following the information session in the MPR, parents and students will be allowed to visit their Kindergarten or TK classrooms to meet with the teacher and give the students a chance to see their new classroom for the year. New EBS students will be able to tour the campus at this time as well, although Grades 1-5 class postings will not be available until the evening at the Penguin Posting Party. We hope to see you there!

    Penguin Posting Party!

    In just a few short weeks, it will be time for our annual Penguin Posting Party! Join us on Friday, August 29th at 5pm outside the front gates at EBS.

  • Shade Structure Project


    Thank you to everyone who took time out of their summer schedule to vote on the funding for the shade structures.  The motion to spend up to $45,000 of AFP money on two shade structures was passed.   

    This project entails building two shade structures over the play structures on the upper playground and one umbrella-syle shade structure on the kindergarten playground.  Part of the funding will come from a donation from Wells Fargo.  The rest will be split between AFP and our site discretionary money from Prop S/Z.
    This project is expected to take up to 10 month to complete.  We are very excited that our student will finally have some shade on the playground!

  • Parent Volunteers Needed for Sports Club

    We are looking for parents to join our brand new Sports Club! We'd like to have parent volunteers come spend time with the kids during lunch hour and help referee and casually coach sports games on the black top. There are often multiple groups of kids playing basketball, tetherball, etc. up on the black top during lunch hour, and these games would benefit from the experience of a parent who is well versed in the sport! There is no specific time commitment, and we'd be willing to work with your schedule so that you can come on days that are convenient for you. This will be a fun way to spend time with your kids and their friends. We also need a parent volunteer to be the chairperson for this group. The main responsibility of the chairperson role will be to coordinate the scheduling of the volunteers. The scheduling could easily be done via email.  Please contact lsloan@sandi.net if interested.
