Student Council Programs

Recycling Program
The Recycling Program was the first program initiated by the student council on October 29, 2017. Boxes were covered and put in each of the classrooms for recycling. Posters were made so that the students could see what is recyclable. Student Council empties the boxes on Fridays, or if the teacher requests it because the box becomes full. So far the Recycling program has been very effective.

Spirit Week & Teacher Dares - December 17-21

Teacher Dares:  The teacher dares will be fulfilled on Friday, December 21. The teacher with the most money in her container will do the dare. The teacher dare collection is important as it is the income we use to give back to the classrooms throughout the rest of the school year. The first purchase will include one piece of recess or game room equipment for each classroom. Each classroom will vote on the item they would like to have purchased for their class.

The Dare voting donation collections will go from Thursday, December 13 through Wednesday, December 19. The winning teachers (those with the most donations) will complete their dares on Friday, December 21

Student Council Teacher Dares:

Barker/Sandlin: Dress up as The Grinch

Worley/Garcia: Be the Queen for the day

Murray/Fleming: Dress up as your favorite athlete

Ault/Azzarito: Dress up like a Pilgrim

Stogner/Carter: Wear a prom dress to school

Albie/Mattison: Wear a tutu for the day


Recess equipment purchased from a portion of the Teacher Dare income:
Barker - Soccer Ball, Sandlin - Football, Worley - Basketball
Fleming - Soccer Ball, Murray - 2 Ping Pong Paddles, Garcia - Volleyball, Ault - 2 Ping Pong Paddles


Spirit Week:  Spirit week will run Monday through Friday, December 17-21. Students need to bring in $1 each day that they would like to participate or $5 for the entire week. 

All money collected will go to PAALS (Palmetto Animal Assisted Life Services), the same Service Support Dog non-for-profit EA Stu Co donated to last year. All food items collected will be taken to Harvest Hope of Greenville.

Spirit Week:

Monday:  Hat Day

Tuesday:  Sports Jersey Day

Wednesday:  Mustache day

Thursday:  PJ Day

Friday: Einstein Spirit Day (wear your Einstein shirt or a Holiday sweater)


A donation in the amount of $150 was sent to PAALS after this fundraiser. 


A donation of over 100 cans and boxed food items was delivered to Harvest Hope Food Bank.


Linens Drive:  For the month of February, Student Council is collecting new towels and washcloths as well as new or gently used sheets and blankets to donate to Safe Harbor. 

Student Store:  The second Friday of the months of March, April, and May, Student Council will open a student store during lunch and recess hour. All students may purchase school supplies or small gift items during that time as permitted to visit the store by their homeroom teachers. All money collected will be put back into the store for future school years or will go back to the students and classrooms to enhance learning.

Penny Wars:  Penny Wars will begin for the months of March and April between A (4th-6th grade) and B (7th and 8th grade) groups. The penny collection containers will be in Mrs. Barker's classroom for A Group and Mrs. Murray's classroom for B Group. All pennies donated will count as 1 point. Any larger change or dollar bills donated will count as negative points against the penny points earned per jar. In other words, collect pennies for your team in your jar, put larger change and bills in your opponents jar. The team with the most points (or least amount of negative points) on the last day of April, will win a PJ Day for the month of May. All money collected will go back to the students and classrooms to enhance learning.

the EA Gala 
The Gala was a big costume party for Einstein. It was a fundraiser. Student Council officers were in attendance and took donations for sports equipment, technology, and art supplies at the school. Officers were at a table that had a basket and a tree on it. They asked people if they wanted to donate to Einstein Academy. $40 was earned for art supplies, $20 for equipment, and $40 for technology. The money raised for art was used to purchase clay for a sculpting unit for the classes, the technology money was used to purchase a Pre-algebra addition for the Math U See program, and the entertainment money will be used for additional sporting equipment for the classrooms for recess time. 



Student Council Fundraiser Teacher Dares 
We had a fundraiser for Student Council called Teacher Dares. Voting for Teacher Dares occurred the week of Nov. 13-17. The students voted by putting money in the jar of the 
teacher they wanted to see do the dare. Each teacher who had the most money in their jar at the end of the week performed their dare on Nov. 21. We raised a total of $126.66 to fund Student Council activities for all of the EA students in the near future.
