CLUBS:

EWA will be hosting an informational session concerning our England 2022 Summer trip for students TODAY Wednesday, September 2nd at 6:00 virtually. Participants will learn about the trip, cost, COVID implications, and EF's new  worry free coverage in the event the pandemic is still lingering. We will also discuss potential scholarship opportunities. Space is limited and the earlier you register, the lower payments will be. If you would like to learn more, please rsvp with the link https://rsvp.eftours.com/xkbn8te. Just prior to the meeting, a Zoom invitation will be sent out to those who RSVP. We look forward to meeting with you all! 

The Diversity Club aims to bring together students of different backgrounds, providing an intentional space for building bridges to connect students across their differences. It will focus on helping students become more open to and less threatened by their uniqueness. Diversity Club will also help students become more compassionate, able to interact more effectively with students from a variety of backgrounds, and sidestep any stereotypes they might have.

  •  If you are interested in joining the Diversity Club, there will be a meeting on Monday, September 14th at 12:45. Please email Ms. Barkley (formerly Mrs. Eddins) at jbarkley@eastwakeacademy.org for Zoom meeting details.
