  • Vaccine-Coordinator

    Have you scheduled a meningococcal vaccine appointment for your rising 7th grader? A new law goes into effect on July 1st requiring all students to have the meningococcal vaccine in order to enter 7th grade. Go ahead and schedule their appointment today! To learn more, visit this link: http://www.immunize.nc.gov/schools/6thgrade.htm

    Meningococcal disease is a rare, but potentially life-threatening bacterial infection. It can potentially kill an otherwise healthy young person within 1 day after the first symptoms appear. Rising 7th graders are now required to receive the meningococcal vaccine that can help prevent this disease. Read more about this requirement here: http://www.immunize.nc.gov/schools/6thgrade.htm

    April is the Month of the Military Child. Throughout April, we want to do our part to recognize and honor the service of NC’s youngest heroes, over 109,000 military students, including some of our very own right here at East Lee.
    Next Wednesday, April 15th, staff and students are encouraged to wear PURPLE in support of Month of the Military Child. Purple symbolizes all branches of the military, as it is the combination of Army green, Marine red, and Coast Guard, Navy and Air Force blue. This is a very visible way to show support and thank military children for their strength and sacrifices.

  • Free Rice Scobbie 2015
    Mr Scobbie's Strive Group has donated a total of 802,870 grains of rice so far this year. Please help us reach our goal of reaching 1,000,000 grains of rice by the end of the year and help do your part to end world hunger. See Mr. Scobbie for the username and password.
    Freerice is a non-profit website that is owned by and supports the United Nations World Food Programme.
    Freerice has two goals:
    Provide education to everyone for free.
    Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free. 
    Whether you are CEO of a large corporation or a street child in a poor country, improving your education can improve your life. It is a great investment in yourself. Perhaps even greater is the investment your donated rice makes in hungry human beings, enabling them to function and be productive. Somewhere in the world, a person is eating rice that you helped provide.
