Presentation ECC Weekly Update 07/06/2018

ECC Families,

Good afternoon. I hope everyone is outside enjoying this beautiful weather. It is going to be a short reprieve before the temps soar again. I would like to thank all of the emails I received in response to our request of prayers for Ms. Ashley and her little girl, Stella. As of today Stella has been moved out of ICU into PICU overflow and the next move is to a regular room. Looks like they will be in the hospital for a few weeks to recover then she will start chemo and radiation. Many of you asked what you could do to help out. I have listed some information below feel free to help out with these suggestions and continued prayers are wonderful as well.
This week we will be headed to the Kansas City Zoo on Wednesday and Thursday. The schedule for when each class is attending is listed below. Tuesday students are invited to bring a teddy bear to school for a teddy bear picnic. This is an individual classroom activity so your child's teacher will have more information on how they will be doing this event. It's hard to believe we are heading into the 6th week of summer session and we only have 4 1/2 weeks to go. Another big group of classrooms had their floors waxed this weekend, so Monday morning may be a little chaotic as teachers move furniture and centers back into place. Please check with the front office and we will let you know where to take your child when you arrive. Enjoy the rest of the weekend and let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

God Bless,

Catherine M. Koob
Director 
Kansas City Zoo 7/11 and 7/12

We will be heading to the Kansas City Zoo on Wednesday and Thursday. Please make sure your child is wearing their yellow field trip shirt and tennis shoes. A sack lunch with a drink is needed. We will begin boarding the bus at 8:30 am and will return around 12:30 pm. The trip is scheduled to be take place in and around the polar bear and penguin exhibit so the children will get to spend some of the time inside. Any parents planning on attending will need to drive separately and pay when they arrive. You are welcome to stay and enjoy more of the zoo with your child or leave the zoo with your child just make sure you communicate your plans with your child's teacher. If you have any questions please let your child's teacher know prior to Wednesday.

How Can You Help?
For the next three weeks while Ashley and family stay with Stella in the hospital we thought it would be helpful to collect gift cards to some of the restaurants they eat at so they can run out and get food. They are a family of four (including Stella). If you would like donate a gift card we will be collecting them in the office and taking them to the hospital throughout the week. Below are some suggestions of gift cards and drinks/snacks the family enjoys. Once Stella is released and they are back home we will put together a meal train etc.

Panera
