Congrats to East Garner!  We are 1 in 12 schools in the NATION who won the Bee Time Grant to support our school efforts with social emotional learning!!!  We are so proud of this award and we look forward to sharing the impact with you in the near future.


Readvolution has started!  We are in the race to reading to winning!  Students will read during their All Block here at school and at home and enter their reading minutes into the website.  The contest will run through December 6th. The contest is 800 minutes of reading which will earn each student 2 FREE Hurricanes tickets.  If your child is reading at least 20 minutes a day then will meet the goal! Each student can log up to 60 minutes a day. We are completing with ALL other WCPSS schools so LET’S READ Explorers!  


That’s it Explorers! . This message will be posted on the school website and sent out on Class Dojo! Questions? Please call the school at 919-773-7411.

My Explorer Best,
Principal Graf
