The Eaton PTA is always looking for help!
Join us for a Volunteer Breakfast on Thursday, January 26th at 7:45 am to learn about our PTA, discover ways you can lend a helping hand, and sign up for fun ways to support your child's school. We would love to see you there!

We are in need of Girls on the Run & STRIDE coaches for the Spring 2017 season (Feb. through April). Please CLICK HERE if you are interested in working with our 3rd - 5th grade students. The number of students that can sign-up depends on the number of volunteer coaches, so we really need your help! 
Practices will begin in early February on Mondays and Thursdays from 2:30-3:30. The 5K is on April 29th. Student registration begins when we know how many coaches we have (mid. Jan.) and ends on Jan. 26th.
