A Busy Spring of Events at Eagle Hill School


A Busy Spring of Events at Eagle Hill School

The Eagle Hill School community is gearing up for numerous important events that will be held in-person for the first time in three years.

The busy agenda includes Family Fun Day on Saturday, April 30;  “A Night of Magic” Benefit on Saturday, May 21 that will feature a tribute to Tom Cone, who is retiring after 46 years of service; and the 2022 Alumni Reunion on Friday, June 3. (Please see details for all below.) Although some EHS events were conducted virtually the last two years, Covid-related changes prevented most from being held.

“We are thrilled to be gathering together again for these key events,” said Lisa Ferraro, Director of Development and Marketing. “They are a wonderful opportunity to connect with others in the Eagle Hill family and further build community.”

The Parents Association has been busy helping to plan many festivities, such as the Upper School Dance Party taking place Friday, April 29, the Spring Coffee Truck Meet-N-Greet on Tuesday, May 3, and Family Fun Day.  “As we move towards the 2022-2023 academic year, the PA continues its work to foster and provide an atmosphere that will encourage all families to feel welcome and in turn come together again,” said Jennifer Borak, President of the Parents Association.

Volunteers would be most appreciated. Any amount of time spent volunteering is helping towards the greater goal of a stronger community. 

Plans are already underway for programs and events occurring during the 2022-2023 academic year. Please watch the ‘News/Events’ tab of the EHS website for further information.
