ECC Families,

Good afternoon I hope everyone is getting ready for the big game! I kind of wish I was in Florida right now with this weather. We had a wonderful Catholic Schools Week. Thank you for all of your generosity with our supply drive for LSSS and treats for our staff and teachers. Presentation ECC has the best families! This week we begin our current family registration for the 2021-2022 school year. More information about registration can be found below. We will end our week with classroom Valentine parties. Don't forget Wednesday, 2/10 will be the last day to sign up for a conference with your child's teacher. If you signed up for a Zoom conference teachers will start sending out invite links on Wednesday. Please remember this year we had to shorten the amount of time for each conference so please make sure to arrive or sign on at your designated time so we can keep things moving along. Also, a reminder that if you are coming in person we are not able to provide care for students and siblings during your conference. Enjoy the rest of the weekend we will see you on Monday! GO CHIEFS!!

God Bless,


Catherine M. Koob
Director

Current Family Registration
Current family registration has begun and will continue through Friday, February 26.

Valentine's Day Parties 2/11 & 2/12

Center Closed for Parent/Teacher Conferences - Monday 2/15
Our center will be closed on Monday, February 15 for parent/teacher conferences. Below you will find a link to the signup for conferences. Like many other events this school year we have changed the format to accommodate COVID guidelines. The conference times have been shortened to 15 minutes. We are also offering an opportunity to schedule your conference via Zoom instead of in person. Also this year we are not able to offer the option for staff to watch your child and siblings while you are at your conference. If you feel you will need more than the time allotted for conferences please touch base with your child's teacher in advance and we will work something or schedule something on another day.
