Etowah Elementary School

 North Carolina Honor School of Excellence



 Luminaria: will be for sale for $10 minimum donation. Since our event is during the day, we will have balloons attached to bags. These balloons and bags will have the names of the people we are wanting to honor or remember. These will also be set out during the May Henderson County event @ Jackson Park (so—2 for 1 deal!). We are going to collect canned goods now too that will be given to a canned food collection in Mills River, which is where our event is. There will be one canned food item in each bag to hold the balloons. So, I’ll also be making forms to tell people about our CANNED FOOD DRIVE! Forms will be available on peachjar!


Etowah School Relay for Life are selling bracelets! The bracelets are $1 each. We have adult and child sizes. They are purple and white and say “Etowah School All Stars Beat Cancer”. If you would like to purchase these, there is a form on the
“Posts” link on the left side of this page to complete and send in. Mrs. Wesson and Mrs. Shelley Brown will be collecting the money. If you write a check, please make it out to “Etowah School”. Thank you!
