ECC Families,

Well it's a wrap! We are finishing out the last week of summer session and then we will close down to prepare our school for a new year! I do have to say in the 14 years I have been here this has felt like the quickest 9 weeks ever! Most of our Pre-K students have had their last day however we do still have around 20 students we will say goodbye to for the last time this Wednesday. For those families without siblings who will be leaving us we hope your time spent here at Presentation ECC has been a great experience for you and your child. We will miss you and hope you will have a great year at your new school and if it is at Presentation then we will see you around! This week we will finish out summer with a picnic and the Kona ice truck on Wednesday. Look for a weekly update dedicated to information about our new school year coming out before Meet Your Teacher. Enjoy the rest of the weekend and this beautiful weather.

God Bless,

Catherine M. Koob

Center Closed for PD & Cleaning Days
Presentation ECC will be closed beginning Thursday, August 9 through Wednesday, August 15. We will reopen for our first day of the school year on Thursday, August 16.
New Remind Group for 2018-2019
In an effort to keep our communications as up to date as possible we will have a new remind group for the 2018-2019 year. I will keep both groups up until after the first week of school then I will delete the current remind group and only the @eccfam1819 group will remain. Remind is the text app we use to keep all of our families up to date on important information. Below you will find a link to the new remind group for this year.

Credit Card Payment Update
Please be aware beginning August 1st a 2% surcharge will be assessed every time a credit card is used to pay fees or tuition. A letter and email was sent out to families alerting them of this change. We still offer ACH electronic payment from your bank account with no additional charge as well as paying by check or cash. If you would like to change your form of payment please contact Teresa Button at tbutton@olpls.org.

*Teresa is on vacation 7/30-8/3 so monthly payments will not be run until 8/6 if you need to make a change prior to this to avoid the new fee you may send Teresa an email or email ckoob@olpls.org. Weekly payments for 7/30 were not charged the new fee.

Meet Your Teacher is August 14
We are getting excited to welcome all of our students for the 2018-2019 school year. We will host a Meet Your Teacher event on Tuesday, August 14 from 3:30pm-5:30pm. We encourage all families who have students enrolled for the upcoming school year to attend. You may bring your school supplies to drop off in your child's classroom, meet staff, drop off paperwork, and pay any outstanding fees and tuition. We are ready for a great year!
School Supply Lists
We have updated the school supply lists for all classes. Please note the students in Ms. Anne's class although most are two until December they will still be using the preschool/pre-k supply list. Also if an item is only for one age group it will be noted in the comments section. These lists can also be found on our website on the current family page.



Lost and Found
We will be cleaning out our lost and found area on Wednesday, August 8. Please make sure to check it out for any items which might belong to your child. On Wednesday we will remove everything and dispose of or donate whatever is left.
2018-2019 School Year Calendar
