Staff spotlight! Meet our new school counselor Melissa. Melissa chose to work at EOC because she loves how individualized the learning is. She enjoys getting to know each student's story and being able to walk along side them as they dream, grow, and explore new pieces of who they are and who they want to become. Chat Melissa up about travel, spending time outside, and volunteering!

Creator Spotlight! Check out Marcus's Band-aid package redesign. Marcus took a class on graphic design last year and started using his skills when he got Adobe Illustrator through EOC. This is his first attempt at package redesign- inspired by a video he watched. He chose to do a retro upgrade of the plain old boring Band-aid box using Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop.
