ECC Families,

Good morning. I hope it has been a wonderful week for you. Everyone spent much of this week getting back into the swing of things after Easter and spring breaks. Now that we are in the midst of spring we will be spending lots more time outside. Most teachers have their recess times in the morning when it may still be a little chilly so make sure to send your child with a jacket. Your child's change of clothes kept here at school may need to be switched out for the change of season. Since we do go outside in the afternoon make sure you have sunscreen at school and now that we will be spending more time outside please consider sending your child to school in tennis shoes instead of flip flops or sandals. We would like to plan a fun event for the students since we are unable to take our spring field trip more information will be coming. Also a very important reminder if your child is part-time you must sign them up for summer session or they will not be able to attend, and if your child is full-time and you want to change their schedule or they will be staying home for the summer you also must sign up. On the signup there is a place for PreK students to enter their last day of attendance this is very helpful. If we don't have this date you will be billed for the entire month of May or the entire summer if you are attending. The summer signup will be taken down on Thursday, April 15 so we can begin to figure out our classes and staffing for summer. If you have questions feel free to email me or stop by the office. There was an error on the important dates email I sent out last week. I had listed Memorial Day on the wrong date. You can find the updated list below and on the website. Have a great weekend!

God Bless,


Catherine M. Koob
Director

Summer Session Registration
Deadline to register is Thursday, April 15. It's time to sign up for the summer session. If your child currently attends part-time (m/w/f or t/th) you will need to register if you would like for them to attend from June 1 - Aug 10. If your child currently attends full-time M-F you do not need to register unless their schedule will be changing to part-time, they will only be attending some of the summer or they will not be attending at all. Right now we are just taking attendance to see how many students we will have and how we will need to staff. Summer calendars and classroom assignments will not come out until May. Below you will find a link to the page on the website to fill out the registration form. The password is summerfun2021
PreK Graduation Wednesday, 5/12
We are excited to be able to have an in-person event for Prek graduation this year. We will still have limitations in place for attendance and a mask mandate in the church. We are still working out all of the details so more information will be going out in the weeks to come. In order for us to get an idea of the number of families who plan to attend we would like for you to enter your information into an online signup form. Each student will be allowed to have 2 guests in addition to himself/herself. We also plan to live stream the event.
