From Mr. Yontz
Principal
 
Dear ECA Families,

Nov. 14 is "World Diabetes Day
" and I have a special plan for this uniform day.
My family and I support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).  
Several ECA family members struggle with diabetes, including me.

Instead of another "Jeans Day," we will have a $1
 "Dress Like Mr. Yontz" Day, 
to raise funds for the JDRF.  
I usually wear khaki pants, blue shirt, sweater or tie. 

DON'T FORGET THE GLASSES!

Our fundraisers support great causes. 
Let's have fun supporting the Juvenile Diabetes research Foundation.



Thank you to the Elementary teachers and students for their great work on the 
Elementary Veterans Day Program. I appreciate all of your hard work and I enjoyed introducing the Veterans.

Thanks to Mr. Mann and his American History class, Mrs. Willis, Mr. Colllins and his band class, the tech guys and everyone who helped put together our HS Veterans Day program. 

Special thanks to our Veterans for your participation. 
We appreciate your presence and we are grateful for your service to our Country!
