This is a great opportunity for you or anyone you know that plans to buy See’s Candy for the holidays. EEU will get back 15%-50% depending on the item when purchased online through the link below.

The last day to order is Friday, December 1, 2023.

This is the first time that the EEU students and families have been asked to help work this event. It is likely to be a BIG fundraiser for just one day of volunteering. We have just a few spots to fill for 4 students and 1 adult. (Students receive service hours)

Dear Students of the EEU
Mr. Davis, Mitchell, Grace, your coaches and staff, and your parents and families are all SO proud of your hard work and dedication to yourself, each other, and the EEU!
Congratulations on a great season! 

Schedule of Skills Workshop Information
Students, please see the emails and information that Mr. Davis has sent to you regarding special workshops and opportunities that will substitute some of the schedule of skills requirements. Save these dates for some of the opportunities. Show up early and be ready to play at the times below.

Opportunity #2 – Basic Harmony
Dates: Nov. 29, Dec. 6, 13, 20
Times: 8:00-8:15 Students on Year 1 and 2, 8:15-8:30 Years 3 and 4

This will be a workshop focused on expanding our knowledge and use of scale patterns/tonality. The focus will be on 3 keys per week, with the intention of introducing and working through 1 new exercise (not schedule of skills patterns) and 1 etude per key per week. This will SUBSTITUTE for ALL boxes in the left 2 columns of your schedule of skills, and students must attend all 4 sessions to receive credit. There will be no exceptions or partial credit for this option.

This is an all or nothing opportunity. You have to attend all 4 to receive credit for the substitution on your schedule of skills. 

Contact Mr. Davis or Mr. Myers if you have any questions.
