ECC Families,

Springing forward always gets me every year! We had a very successful open house and got to meet lots of new families. We are hoping to be able to welcome all of them into our Presentation community in the fall. We concluded our picture days with Lil' Angels on Friday and the proofs should be back here at Presentation in a week or so. We will be taking it easy this week and next as it is spring break for Presentation school and LS school district. Please make sure you send in one dozen filled plastic eggs by Monday, March 19 for our Easter Egg Hunts coming up soon. The eggs should be turned into your classroom teacher where they will store them until their classroom hunt.

God Bless,

Catherine M. Koob
Building Improvements Coming!
Looks like we will be getting a new roof! As you can expect this will be a pretty big job. Myself, our maintenance supervisor and business manager met with the roofing company representative on Friday to go over details and safety concerns. This process may be starting as soon as Tuesday, March 13. We do not forsee any issues which will affect our day to day business but I will keep everyone informed as we go.
Lenten Resources
We began Lent as a school on Ash Wednesday. All of our teachers have been given resources to help students understand why we talk about Lent and what it is all about. We will concentrate on three main objectives in Lent. Fasting, Prayer and Giving. We will talk about these in ways little guys can understand. Fasting - sacrifice, Prayer - growing closer to God and Giving- following Jesus example to help others. All students will have a Lenten calendar sent home so families can discuss and follow along. We also have items on our Lenten resource table up front for families to take.
Easter Egg Hunts March 20 & 21
We will have our annual Easter Egg Hunts on Tuesday, March 20 and Wednesday, March 21. Hopefully the first day of Spring will bring great weather for this fun event! We are asking all students to bring in one dozen FILLED plastic eggs to their teachers by Monday, March 19. A list of approved candy can be found below.

For our spring field trip we will be heading to Deanna Rose Farmstead. The dates for this field trip will be Tuesday, April 17- Thursday, April 19. Please refer to the schedule and information sheet below. Field trip permission slips will be sent home in your child's mail folder this week.
