We Inspire Each

Shawn Hoffman-Bram

The importance of lifelong learning inspires me to lead the Community Education team each day.

 

Jessica and Adam, ECFE

ECFE has been a great way to connect with other moms, gain some extra parenting tools, and spend some quality one-on-one time with my youngest.

Harris, Little Eagles

What do I love about Little Eagles?
I love everything! (And coloring is fun!!)

Riya, EPIC

I like EPIC because I get to learn new things, experience new things, and make new friends. Our teachers really care about us and try to make it really fun. I also like that we get to go outside and do lots of different activities.

I like the Legos and the projects at Eagle Zone!

Family School Parents

Our kids, when they start here, they learn a lot of things–learning, sharing, reading, writing, exercise. Everything. Every day we come as parents and learn new words. It is important for us to be here.
