Admission to the movie is free for all Eakin families.  Doors open at 5:30PM to get the best spots.  There will be room for blankets on the floor up front and seats in the back.  

Plan to eat dinner during Movie Night  Popcorn, pizza, & drinks will be available at the concessions stand. 

Movie Night also culminates our Invest campaign.  If you are able, please donate to the Invest campaign prior to Movie Night so we can celebrate exceeding our goal.  All donations help fund educational resources and materials for our teachers and students.  We've had donations from $1 to over $2000.  Please give what you can to support our Eakin Eagles!

Walk to School Day / Wednesday, October 2nd, 7:30 AM

Walk to School Day - it's an Eakin community celebration of health and a chance to remind students about safe walking practices.

We encourage all Eakin Eagles to plan to walk to school on October 2 if you live nearby.  Otherwise, consider parking in the neighborhood and walking the rest of the way to Eakin.  The event culminates with celebrations at the Fairfax entrance.  

There will be tables setup at the Fairfax entrance for walking students to sign-in from 7:30 AM until 8:00 AM.  Everyone gets a participation sticker.  Plus, the class from each grade level that has the most participation will win the golden shoe!!

Invest In Your Child / Annual Fund Campaign

Invest in Your Child is Eakin’s annual fund & biggest fundraiser of the year. It funds a large portion of the PTO budget and is used to help supplement and support the needs of the school, benefitting EVERY student at Eakin. 

Due to generosity in our community, the goal this year is to raise over $70,000 by September 27th. Please INVEST in your child’s education and future by giving what you can.

Every dollar makes a difference and provides critical services and resources that the MNPS budget does not cover.  Gifts to the annual fund go to areas of greatest need, including classroom materials, staff professional development, International Baccalaureate (IB) expenses, technology replacement, related arts materials, playground equipment, and more.  Let's make sure our school continues to have the resources needed for every student to achieve their highest potential.  

Please share with friends, family, neighbors, and anyone looking to invest in a great cause...our students, the future leaders of Nashville and beyond.
