Eby’s goal for their annual JDRF Fundraiser was $3,000.00. Our amazing Pirates & their Pirate Community worked hard to support this fundraiser and raised over $4,000.00 for juvenile diabetes research!

A $50 Target gift card was given to the top fundraiser, Lillian Payne in Mrs. Hampton’s class & the next top 6 who won t-shirts were Karson Graham, Rhyder Reynolds, Destinee Smaga, Conner Marchese, and David Bowers. Congratulations and great job!

The classroom change wars were another JDRF project used to raise funds with the top 3 classrooms winning prizes. And the winning classrooms are…

1st Place Pizza Party-Pizza Party goes to Mrs. Thorne’s class

2nd Place Ice-Cream Party– Ice-cream party goes to Mrs. Jarvis’s class

3rd Place Scholastic Gift Card–$25 scholastic book certificate goes to Miss Havens


Eby Pirates are in the home stretch of their JDRF campaign this week selling paper sneakers, collecting pledges for their walk on Friday and gathering pennies, nickles, dimes & quarters for the “Spare Change War” taking place in Eby classrooms. So don’t forget to purchase a paper sneaker, send that loose change from your couch cushions or make a donation to an Eby Pirate this week to help them out for a good cause!
