Happy as a Clam Race
The PTO would like to say a big thank you to those who supported and participated in the 9th Annual Happy as a Clam 5k. The race was once again a wonderful community event with more than 50% of EES students participating in the race and a record number of students racing their first 5k! Mrs Dwyer's first grade class won The Clam Cup with more than 75% participation. In addition, we were able to raise more than $4,000 to support enrichment activities at EES. We hope you had a great time and look forward to another amazing race next year!
