ECC Families,

Good morning. I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. We have many activities starting this week. Our preschool and pre-k classes will begin their weekly Spanish classes with Ms. Carolina, pre-K will attend their first weekly Mass, Shining Star demo days, Music with Mar classes for our T/TH two year old students,and Young Rembrandts classes start this week. If you have questions about any of the extracurricular activities please reach out to us in the office we will help you or put you in touch with the correct person. It's hard to believe after this week we will have been back to school for a month! Look for a separate email to go out this week with details about our Faulkner's field trip in October. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Go Chiefs!!

God Bless,

Classroom Volunteers
Each classroom is looking for a family member who would like to volunteer to be a lead room parent. We have two classroom parties during the school year, Halloween and Valentine's Day. It is extremely helpful to the teacher if there is a parent or family member who is willing to plan, organize and be the contact person for the classroom for these events. Usually it is best to just have one or two people as the leads and then they can ask for help from additional volunteers. Of course family members are also welcome to attend the parties as well. If you are willing to be a lead room parent please email your child's teacher by October 1st so they know who they are going to be working with and who to refer parent questions to regarding the parties. Even though the two classroom parties are the main events we need volunteers for please don't be discouraged if you are unable to volunteer for these events just contact your child's teacher to let them know you are interested in helping out and they will let you know what volunteer opportunities are available in their classroom.



Diocesan Family Income Survey
Families please take the time to fill out the information in the link below for the Diocese. This information is confidential and is used to determine diocese allocations for the schools in regards to special services and and compiling data for use in grant applications.

Fall School Pictures
Every year we offer two opportunities for you to have your child's picture taken. In the fall Sandy Braun of Sandy Braun Photography takes wonderful and unique school photos of your child and their class. This year Sandy will be at Presentation ECC the week of 9/16. Below you will find a link with information on when your child's class will take their individual pictures. Each class will typically take a class photo after their individual pictures are complete. For the two year old classes who have students who attend on both M/W/F or T/TH if your child's picture day is not on a day they normally attend they will take their individual picture on one of the days they attend with another class. Their teacher will coordinate a class picture on that day as well. If you would like siblings to take pictures together you must let their teachers know and on which siblings day you want the pictures taken so their teachers can coordinate. If you have any questions please let us know. Information about ordering will go out after pictures have been taken.

Faulkner's Ranch Field Trip
Our first of two field trips for the year will take place at Faulkner's Ranch in October. Below you will find a information sheet to let you know when your child's class will be attending. The dates are set however we are still working out what time our tours will start on each day. Look for more information to come out next week regarding times, family attendance and bus information.

Activity Fee Classes
In addition to field trips, special events, and curriculum support the annual activity fee helps partially cover the cost of regular classes for each age group. Our toddlers and twos classes participate in a twice monthly Stretch-n-Grow class and our preschool and pre-k classes enjoy weekly Spanish classes. More information can be found below. We also have monthly rotating age group visits from the "Library Guy".



Extracurricular Activities
Our Shining Star demo days are coming up soon. Your child will participate in a shining star class on either Monday, September 9 or Tuesday, September 10. These classes take place in the afternoon usually beginning around 3pm. Happy Feet demo days will be Wednesday, September 4 and Thursday, September 5. These classes are also in the afternoon.
