Equip Learners - Empower Creativity - Engage Communities
Welcome to EPiC Elementary!
We want to take the opportunity to welcome you to our EPiC school family and introduce ourselves. We are your child's kindergarten teachers for EPiC Studio K - Katie Ellis and Sarah Ramos.

While we wish we could meet you in person, at this time the current circumstances are not affording us that opportunity. However, we want you and your child to become familiar with our learning environment. We have some important information below. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

We are looking forward to a great year!

EPiC Studio K Teachers,
Katie Ellis - Katie.Ellis@lps53.org

Getting to Know Your Child!
Please help us by completing the two activities below.
Kindergarten Photo Activity
  1. Print the sign and put your child’s first and last name at the bottom
  2. Take a photo of your child holding the sign

These photos will be used in our school projects at the beginning of the year.
All About Me Activity
As we get ready for an amazing year
in Studio K, we would like to gather
more information to help us prepare for our first day. Please fill out the All About Me information sheet below.
Preparing for Studio K
EPiC Studio K Story
What does my new school look like?
The EPiC Studio K Story provides you with a story about EPiC Elementary. This learning experience will incorporate social stories capturing all aspects of school life. You will meet our principal, as well as the classroom teachers, and learn about our school environment through a virtual tour.

Our goal is for you and your family to become familiar with our school environment while providing your child with a visual of what their “new” school will look like and introduce some familiar faces they will soon see in the fall. 
Preparing for   Kindergarten
Summer Checklist
Students can work on practical skills like saying their first and last name and tying their shoes. Students can also work on math and reading skills like counting to ten and identifying the letters of the alphabet. Below is a helpful checklist for essential skills to practice over the summer.
Immunizations Information
Records Needed on File
Missouri State Law requires that children must have up to date vaccination records on file at school. If your child is missing the required vaccinations for school, your child will not be able to come to school until the needed vaccinations are given. Please read below for more information.
