North Shore Middle School Celebrates E3 Day

On November 22, 2022, the day before Thanksgiving break, everyone at North Shore Middle School did something wonderful and inspiring. Everyone celebrated E3 together making a positive difference in the lives of others. North Shore Middle School E3 day is where Everyone Matters, Everyone Cares, Everyone Learns (E3). Annually on E3 Day, middle school students are encouraged to learn about themselves and others while thinking about ways they can make a positive difference in their school, community, and in places around the world.

Principal Dr. Ryan O’Hara said, “E3 Day is a yearly tradition at North Shore Middle School that reminds us of just how much we can do when we work together to make our world better for each other.”

During the course of the day, students, faculty and staff engaged in numerous activities and fundraising events, some of which were off-site opportunities for our students and community outside of the school.

Some of the E3 Activities included:

  • Raking a Difference
  • Miles for Smiles
  • Elementary Teacher for the Day
  • Read-a-Thon
  • E3 Refreshment Stand Sale
  • Fight Hard, Smile Big (Pedone Basketball and Football)
  • E3 Mural Painting/Beautification of the School
  • Organic Gardening
  • Gifts for Foster Kids
  • Cards for Soldiers
  • 3 on 3 Basketball
  • Turkey Football Bowl
  • Cove Animal Shelter
  • Cove Senior Citizen Chorus Performance
  • Cards of Love for Hospitalized Children
  • Organic Gardening
  • Black Tuesday Fundraiser


E3 proved that when North Shore Middle Schoolers collaborate and work together they could rise to the occasion, pay it forward, and make a difference in the world! Many thanks to all of the students, community members, and faculty and staff that helped make this day a tremendous success. Please ask your children how they helped make a difference this Everyone Cares Day at North Shore Middle School. Happy Thanksgiving!
