EB is turning 40!

All Year Long

EB is turning 40! All year long, we will be celebrating EB’s 40th anniversary, through activities, special celebrations, and events. 

Student Run-A-Thon

Event: February 1, 9:30am - 12pm

Registration and donation campaign: January 5 to February 1

Replacing our former Raffle, this fundraiser gets the kids involved at every grade level and promotes a healthy lifestyle for our students and families. Parents can cheer on their children as they run/walk/skip/jump their way around the course!

This fundraising event empowers students to be more involved in their own fundraising, and it promotes “healthy living through movement”.

The Run-A-Thon will involve all the EB students taking part in sponsored running and physical activities. There are three age-appropriate courses for preschool, K-G5 and the Middle School, with fun activities, prizes and many other incentives to take part.

To make it as simple as possible and to allow the students to experience personal fundraising, a dedicated online fundraising site makes the process of getting sponsorships easy and pain-free.

World Celebrations

World Celebrations

World Celebrations is a beautiful display of how many diverse cultures we have at EB—at last count, there were 60 nationalities represented in the school community—and how much we value each of them. Parents prepare a dish from their culture, and the result is an astonishing mix of foods from around the world. The combination of delicious food and a joyous community atmosphere make this a not-to-be-missed event.



If you have any questions about these events contact Mei-Lin Ha, Development Coordinator, at For volunteering, contact the Parents’ Association ( or sign up on the PA website.
