Community Give Back Day
On October 14, under the leadership of the Home & School Organization, staff and students in grades K-12 participated in Community Give Back Day and provided various services to member through the community. The activities ranged from helping sister schools in Oceanside and Murrieta to visiting care facilities and bringing music and small gifts to the residents. Students helped a couple of local schools with clean up and organization of materials. EAA Home & School provided a delicious pizza lunch to close out the day.
While this was the first Community Give Back Day for the 2022-2023 school year, the academy plans to eventually hold four Community Give Back Days each school year. EAA believes that their mission is the education of the head, hand and heart. Give Back Day allows their mission to be shown to the community through acts of service. It was a terrific way to let the community know about the Hawk Spirit at EAA.
