From the Principal's Desk

Dear Parents,

Spring is in the air! Thank you for all your support during this busy time of year!

Next week, we have lots of activities going on with the Play, the New Family Welcome Coffee, the Spaghetti Dinner, and the start of the Book Fair.

Special thanks to Mrs. Bennett, Mr. Granito, and Mrs. Janke for all of their hard work on the play! Thank you to all of the parent volunteers for giving their time and resources to help make the play great!

Have a wonderful weekend!


Dr. Kathleen Cox

May is Mary's Month!  During May, throughout the Catholic world, special devotions honor our Blessed Mother, Mary.  One of those devotions is the May Crowning.  It recognizes Mary as Queen of Heaven and Earth. 
Our School's May Crowning will be held on Tuesday, May 7th during morning prayer.  We ask that each student bring in one flower on Tuesday to help us honor the Queenship of Mary.

ECI would like to remind parents / guardians that as we near the end of the school year, all negative balances must be settled with the school cafeteria.  
If you do not know your child's current balance please email Christopher Roberts at .  Thank You!
