Life Lab: Summer Volunteer Needs

Let's keep the life in the Life Lab! Please sign up to monitor the Life Lab 1-2 days of a specific week. Duties include weeding, making sure that the watering system is working, and ensure that all looks in order in the Life Lab. You can set a time to work whenever is good for you. Make it a family project and take a picnic!  

The day listed on the sign up is a Monday. You can choose ANY DAY within that week and ANY TIME to go to the Life Lab. Do what is best for your family.  Sign Up Here.

I would also love any reports on pollinator activity. Check out the milkweed for caterpillars. Photos are greatly appreciated!  Questions? Contact Laura @ laurashannon@mac.com.

Order Your 2018/19 School Supplies 

As a convenience to our EIS Community, we are again offering parents an opportunity to pre-order their school supplies for the 2018/19 school year.  School supplies will be ordered through EduKit, Inc.  Check your child's backpack for the details this week or click on this link here to order now.  Best pricing for school supplies will be offered on orders placed by June 15th, but orders will be taken through July 15th.  School Supplies ordered through EduKit will be delivered directly to the school before the start of the school year.  If you plan to purchase your own supplies, click here for the list(s).
